The RC Pro Tec cycling outfit, developed by Scott Sports in collaboration with Schoeller, is an outfit that utilizes a unique blend of carbon and ceramic materials to provide increased protection for cyclists. This special fabric technology provides for far higher resistance to abrasion than regular cycling apparel, therefore resulting in increased protection in cases of crashes.

High-speed collisions occur fairly frequently in road race events, and while these incidents rarely lead to broken bones or serious injuries, they do cause painful tearing of the skin.

The RC Pro Tec cycling outfit's knitted carbon yarn ensures greater strength as well as an antibacterial effect. These features combined with ceramic printing ensure a high level of durability and robustness to make cyclists confident and unafraid of unplanned meetings with the asphalt.
