Spine Guard ?

My question is geared more towards track guys and/or anyone that wears a spine guard under full racing leathers. What spine guard to you wear? What do you like about it? What do you not like about it?

I use the Dainese. Its a full width, 7 spline back support. the lower two can swivel, the full piece has interlocking plates that will allow you to bend down but wont bend over backwards on itself, like alpinestar and other models. It breathes really well and has a nice cut out for the neck incase it rides up during a ride. My cons: looks like you're wearing suspenders when you take off the jacket. lol


I prefer a back support that bends less then my back lol.
Sorry for the wording; this is an old avatar...

Yes. Don't remember the brand.

Get one with articulated plastic covering the spine area, and remember you get what you pay for.

I have an alpinestars, with a lower wrap for my gut. the top zips up for chest and shoulder/elbow protection. very nice, a little restricting. I'm trying to get used to it by always wearingit instead of when I think I need it. the back portion is a little stiff, but it probably needs to be. I wear it under my full suit and my textile gear.

Back Protector

Forcefield Armour back protector is what I recommend. There's a lot of them out there that are nothing more than chunks of plastic with straps. This material is designed to spread the energy of the impact point. Costs a little more but money well spent.
