D3O XP1 Back Protector
D3O XP1 Level 2 Back Protector
If you're a track fiend, or just someone who wants to maximise their protection whilst out on the bike, this Level 2 D3O XP1 Back Protector is a superb choice. It's lightweight, breathable and most importantly, certified to EN1621-2 Level 2, which means that it's proven to transfer less force to your body in the event of an accident than a level 1 back protector. The D3O XP1 is 18mm thick and comes complete with a body harness, where you put the two adjustable straps over your shoulders and attach the waist band with the thick velcro strap.
D3O motorcycle armour is the best there is, due to both their form and function. They've been awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise, for their innovations in military, motorcycle and sporting armour. The materials used in this D3O XP1 back protector utilise the latest technological innovations, designed to provide protection and comfort. The molecules which form the material in the motorcycle armour, reversibly lock upon impact, then return to their original state after impact. This means that under normal conditions, the material is soft and flexible, allowing you much more freedom to move on the bike than you're used to with traditional armour. Then, if you're unfortunate enough to have a spill, the molecules lock, causing the material to stiffen and absorb huge amounts of energy, rather than it being transferred to your body. After impact, the material returns to its normal form, soft and flexible. Seriously impressive.
