There are few things that make you feel as secure as a back protector, especially if you're riding on track (although many riders won't leave the house without one). Here are just five of the back protectors available on the MCN Shop, at www.mcnshop.com.

RST Moto Pilot-S

Knox Kompakt, £39.99
Knox claim this is their lightest and most comfortable back protector. It rolls up for storage, and is also claimed to be breathable, flexible and soft. It's CE approved to EN 1621-2 Level 1.

Frank Thomas Rage

Forcefield Pro L2, £84.95
Designed to be soft, comfortable and flexible. It has fully adjustable shoulder straps and double waist adjustment. It's CE approved to Level 2, meaning it offers greater impact protection than a Level 1 protector.

Spidi Sportscomposite

Knox Aegis, £54.99
Said to be 30% lighter than its predecessor, low-profile under clothing and flexible for comfort and fit. A system of flex channels give a more sculpted fit around the back, which Knox says makes it more comfortable to wear under tight riding gear.

It is completely breathable with a superior air venting system for maximum air flow to keep riders cool.  There are shoulder straps, plus adjustable and removable kidney protectors.
