Back Protectors

How many of you guys have back protectors for the up coming track day? I have a couple extra ones that I will be bringing and allowing trustworthy people to borrow if nescessary. Otherwise I am suggesting that everybody start looking into them. They may not be so important in your mind at first but a couple of trips around the track at a nice pace will have you thinking about them quick. I just picked up my Knox back protector from Motorcycles - Unlimited for a of a deal. right:

Re: Back Protectors

back protectors are indispensable... they're a must. Hurting your back in a fall is the last thing you would want beside your head..

Re: Back Protectors

all suits come with foam padding in the back, but not to be trusted,,, not considered a back protector in my book,, you need to get a full length spine protector,, something that covers up your whole spine,, its purpose is to not allow your back and spine to bend backwards, the pc thats in the suit you bought is only going to cover a small portion of your back so it is best to go back to Motorcycles Unlimited and get the knox b.p. or go to cycle gear and pick up one from there..

Re: Back Protectors

Re: Back Protectors

im talking about the hard plastic back protector not the foam one. there is one that covers from mid back to neck making almost a V shape.
