Bliss has been making noise in Europe for the past 3 years with their new line of protection and this year at Sea Otter, announced their plans for US and possibly other North American availability. What caught our eye with Bliss was the well thought out and unique use of what they call Armourgel, a familiar silicon-based material that hardens with impact with a few clever applications.

Unlike other soft pads we've seen on the market, Bliss molded the backing material into the padding. This helps keep the pad closer to your body, helps prevent shifting in a crash, and eliminates the need for a tearable material over the silicon-based based portion of the pad to increase durability.
