Kit review: Impact Safe-T Armor chest protector

Product: Impact Safe-T Armor chest protector £76 (plus delivery from USA)
Miles covered/time: Four race meets/four months
What’s good? 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.
What’s not? They’re only available direct from the USA, but it’s not a massive problem – just expect a small delay. No CE approval, but having landed chest first on a screen before, I’d be confident it would provide enough protection in similar crashes.
