MCN’s top 5 back protectors

Once you’ve worn one you’re unlikely to ever ride without one again.

A well fitted back (or even chest) protector can prevent or lessen the extend of certain injuries if you’re unlucky enough to take a tumble. Find a back protector for sale. Here are MCN’s top five of recent years…

Forcefield Pro L2 back protector
MCN says:
“If there was only one product I could recommend that everyone wear, it is this. In terms of comfort and safety, it’s a masterpiece. There are few back protectors that reach CE level two requirements, but this soft Forcefield one does.
“The honeycombed design means it’s lightweight, it can be used again and again after as many crashes as you like and when your body heats up it moulds to your back like there’s nothing there.”

Revit Gravity back protector
MCN says:
“I got away with just bruising to my feet and middle of my back after a 65mph highside at Brands Hatch last year – a major part of that light injury escape was due to landing on this back protector. My leathers and boots were both ruined but the back protector lives on as it suffered no damage. I did need to have some physiotherapy on my back because the impact aggravated an old injury from a previous accident but I still consider it a great performance. The back protector is Level 2 CE approved, has adjustable shoulder straps and even manages to stay comfortable in the recent hot weather. I still wear it every day.”

 

Forcefield Sport-Lite L1 back protector
MCN says:
“After the first few rides with the Sport-Lite it becomes almost unnoticeable – it is as it says – light – and the shoulder straps and waistband give you plenty of adjustment.”

Knox back protector
MCN says:
“Unlike other back protectors I’ve worn, this big old beauty covers the kidney area with hard armour, wraps half way round your body and really does give a feeling of utter protection should the unthinkable happen. I’ve never crashed while wearing it (touch wood), but comfort under leathers is pretty good.”

Impact Safe-T Armor chest protector
MCN says:
“Because you don’t tend to hit your chest as hard as other parts of your body, the Safe-T Armor chest protector is thin for comfort – dense foam with a layer of plastic on the front flexes around body and softens with heat. You don’t notice it’s there, even tucked right in on my tiny 250. I’ve not put it to the test yet, but it doesn’t feel natural to wear a one-piece suit without it. This one is borrowed from a colleague – usually you send your measurements and get a custom fit.”
