Forcefield Body Armour

Posted on: April 22nd, 2013 by Road Rider MCA No Comments


We take gearing up for the ride seriously and so does Forcefield, and we both believe that armor should be as comfortable and flexible for the rider as it can be. Forcefield’s research and development process doesn’t stop once their products earn a safety rating; they strive to achieve the very best possible safety performance and function in every product. And that’s why along with being supremely protective, their armor is breathable, flexible, and comfortable. They build CE Level 1 and Level 2 armor upgrades, back protectors, and armored clothing that is built for the movement of motorsports and action sports.

Forcefield Body Armour hasn’t stopped improving and innovating since they first started developing personal protective gear in England in the 90s. Their attitude to protection is uncompromising, and they use only the most advanced materials and construction processes. So even though these Brits spell ‘armor’ with a ‘u’ we’re damn proud to carry a healthy selection of their products, so you can stay safer on the road.

Nearly all of Forcefield’s products utilize a unique and patented PVC grid material called NITREX Evo®. NITREX Evo is a highly shock-absorbing, soft and flexible material. By dispersing the energy of the impact, the material delays the moment of transmission of the impact’s force, diminishing it as it travels. But because of the NITREX Evo’s beehive structure, the soft PVC doesn’t compress too much and “bottom out”. Read more about Forcefield’s technology and safety credentials here.

CE Level 2 Back Protectors

There are two CE safety rating levels for back protectors. The vast majority of back protectors included with jackets are just foam pads, and aren’t CE rated at all. We recommend upgrading your back protection when you buy a jacket, either by purchasing a new armor insert or a separate back protector with integrated shoulder straps and lumbar support.

The following Forcefield back protectors and insert pads are rated CE Level 2, the highest rating for a back protector, but they are also flexible, comfortable, and breathable on the bike.
