Bionic Air Back Pro­tec­tor

Motorcycle Monthly - - Product -

Es­sen­tially, this has two parts to the spine pro­tec­tion. The first is an outer hon­ey­comb plate – made of polypropy­lene, the sec­ond is an in­ner hon­ey­comb foam made from an elas­to­met­ric com­pound.

What that means in the real world is that this back pro­tec­tor is light and very low pro­file. The dou­ble Vel­cro waist closing straps are ideal and nicely wide too.

Once this is on, you can for­get about it. I don’t even re­alise I’m wear­ing it when I’m out on track, it’s that com­fort­able. In the crash it was clear that my lower back had taken a clonk or two as I slid along, but I never felt it and there wasn’t even so much as light bruis­ing af­ter­wards.
