Body Armour bike snowboard motorcycles same thing?
Hi all, I am on the fence about getting some body armour (back and shoulders prob) primarily for snowboarding but alsoPosted 4 years ago
Hoping to use it mountain biking too. There is a lot about and just wondering what people use and if they use it for boarding/sking too? All I currently use for boarding is some neoprene padded knees pads. Ta in advancemu3266Member
I’ve got a snowboarding back armour and it is rather lightweight and not recommended for mountain bike use.
I also have motorcycle back armour which is considerably bulkier but provides an awful lot more impact protection, but is too restrictive for mountain biking.
Hope that helps.Posted 4 years agolegendMember
Some stuff is better than others. I used to use Dainese and 661 jackets, but much prefer just going for a Sweet Protection back protector and seperate elbow pads (only use the back protector for DH). The missus uses the Sweet Bear Suit jacket, which she reckons is much better and cooler for summer – probably helped by the fact it doesn’t have a chest plate on it. Would happily where this stuff if I was hucking the off-piste gnar tooPosted 4 years agobarryboglipsMember
i’m after back and shoulder protection really. Do those 661 compression tops do much?
the compression tops? u mean sub gear?
All they do is protect your arms/shoulder from scrapes
I wear it with a spine board when doing DH. I had a 661 evo pressure suit before and it was bulky but I wore it in summer etc and it was ok. I sweat like **** regardless lol
Just wear knee pads for XC.Posted 4 years agouberscottSubscriber
Have a look at the Forcefield Pro Shirt.
Having crash-tested a Forcefield back protector on my motorbike, I can say that they make good kit! I’ve tried on the Pro Shirt and found it very comfortable.Posted 4 years ago
