Q What’s the best back pro­tec­tor to re­place my jacket’s bit of foam?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I re­cently bought an Alpines­tars Jaws jacket and the foam in the back would be more use­ful as a cush­ion than a pro­tec­tor. Gary Jar­man, Berks

An­swered by Keith Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles Many jack­ets come with ‘shap­ing foam’ in a rear in­ter­nal pocket, to let you know there’s a pocket there. The best after­mar­ket pro­tec­tor for your jacket (and many oth­ers) would be a Force­field Pro Lite K. These come in a va­ri­ety of shapes and sizes to fit most jack­ets. Alpines­tars make their own Nu­cleon in­sert, which is a good choice as well. A large D3O in­sert can be eas­ily trimmed to suit a va­ri­ety of pock­ets and Dainese jack­ets have a space for their Wave in­serts, which are good, but very rigid. Some jack­ets may re­quire a de­gree in origami to get the in­sert in place, so be care­ful if you’re do­ing it your­self.

£49.99 Force­field Pro Lite K 002

Alpines­tars Nu­cleon KR-21 £33.24

£54.99 Dainese Wave G
