You Ask/You Answer: Back protectors

Published: 03 April 2013

"I've been riding over 12 years, and have never worn a proper back protector. I've got one of those foam back pad things that you get in your jacket – which obviously isn't a 'protector', and Iv'e noticed that a lot of the riders in my bike club wear full-on separate protectors now.

"Should I be wearing one? Are they comfortable? Do they really make a big difference in a crash? I'd really like some advice, as they're not cheap, and they look bulky and uncomfortable to me."
