  3. Hey all, Been thinking about this post for a fair while now. On May 15th I received some new gear (boots and chest protector) in the mail. I geared up and drove down to my local xc/mx track to try out my new gear. I did not contact my buddies as as was going for an "easy" ride. VERY luckily there was other riders at the track and two of them took me through a new part of the xc track. I would estimate my skill level at basic to medium as I am just getting back to riding at 46. The accident: I was in between the two other guys when I came out of a corner and clipped (that's what I tell my wife and friends) I hit a small try tree that stopped the bike dead. I came off the bike and must have placed my left foot down first as it took all the force. I ended up with class VI tibia plateau fracture of my left leg. After 5 weeks I now know this was a pretty serious fracture. I am laid up for the whole summer. No weight bearing for 3 months. Spirits are good and always have a great attitude, thank god for a great family!!! The IMPORTANT lesson which we all know and I want to re-iterate is under NO reason never ride alone. (Period) For those concerned...the bike is fine 🙂 . It's driving me crazy that it is dirty and I can't wash it yet 🙂. Jeff in Ontario
  4. I would like to replace my Camelbak with a unit that allows carrying tools at the same time. I have always attached my hydration units to my chest protector and have a tool belt on at the same time which creates a sore back after a long trail ride. If you have one, I would appreciate your comments on the same (likes, dislikes, whatever). TIA Tom

    I have never worn body protection, but after a couple crashes last year that left me with bruised ribs I decided I better do something. I considered the soft armor, even tried the Leatt vest, but it all seems like it would be too warm on those long summer rides. I already had an Atlas Neck Brace, so the next logical move was to get body protection from Atlas, too. Their Guardian soft armor looks interesting and not as smothering as some others, but its not available yet, so I opted for the Defender. The Defender is a next generation roost protector, it boasts some features your standard roost protector hasn't had in the past, and the full version also protects your back. It has waterproof padding, is made for use with the Atlas Neck Brace (and looks like it will work well with others) and is configurable in 5 different ways. You can remove the upper back plate and replace it with a clear plastic piece, or you can just remove the upper pads and leave the hard plastic in place. The front has an upper plate that you don't use with an Atlas Neck Brace, but can be added for use without a neck brace or for use with other brands of braces. It is vented quite well, and when moving even seems to accelerate the air through the protector and around your body. As for comfort, well its a hard plastic roost protector that also covers your back, so it's not like wearing a t shirt. The side straps hold it in place reasonably well, but it did have a tendency to ride up on me a little. The elastic straps at the shoulders do a good job of holding the Atlas Neck Brace in place, and the brace fits nicely with the pads going under the armor in the back and into the open area in the front. The GoPro mount that mounts in the middle of the chest is a plus, that POV is much better than a helmet mount if you are inclined to film while riding. All in all, it seems to be a decent product for the money, I found it on sale for under $100. It comes in white or black. PRODUCT INFORMATION WEIGHT 1.65 Lbs (760g) - 2.2 lbs (993g) Depending on configuration PACKAGING DIMENSIONS Depth - 12” (31 cm) Width - 14.5” (37 cm) Height - 4.6” (12 cm) IN THE BOX Defender Hanger GoPro mount Quickstart guide Configuration kit

What do you guys do when you trail ride alone, my dad wants me to carry a phone but i can't with my jersey and rants and don't want a backpack.. i thought about a hydration pack and putting it in that but i don't have a chest protector, and most hook to that right? I don't like the bulk though either... any solutions?

    EVS Revolution 5 Under Deflector The Revo 5 is a perfect choice for riders who are looking for chest protector type protection in an under-the-jersey option. Features: > Molded cross-link bio-foam interior serves as a shock absorbing barrier > Large molded back plate provides complete spine and back roost protection > 1 piece molded polycarbonate front and back plates provide the highest possible impact, abrasion and puncture protection > Fully adjustable fit to provide protection for riders of all sizes
  8. I took a hard fall yesterday and my lower ribs are killing me. I have just a Thor chest protector. Does the body armor give more protection? Think I'm gonna go get some X-rays today
  9. Hi, I currently ( and always have run chest protector/ roost deflectors) run a fox pro frame. I was on Instagram recently and noticed that none of the pros, offroad or MX, seem to wear them. Are they worth wearing or not? On a side note, does anyone have an alternate method of the Leatt Hands free hydration connector? I don't want to spend $30 on it.
  10. After looking into proper and effective safety gear, I'm still not seeing the benefit of a chest protector. I see riders and pictures of riders with and without them. Are they helpful or is it more of a "the more protected I feel, the harder I'll push/faster I'll go" feeling kind of thing?
  11. Just thought I'd share this in case someone else is having trouble finding a chest protector. For the last few years I've been trying many different chest protectors, but could never find one that fit. I'm tall but skinny. (5' 10", 110lbs)......I first started with a Youth thor quadrant, which fit okay but wasn't long enough. It didn't go far enough down my ribs and also didn't fit well with my Leatt. Next I went to a Leatt Adventure Lite. This fit okay, but not good. Still loose up in the shoulder area. I used it for a season and got rid of it. This past season I used a EVS under jersey R4....I have zero complaints on this. It fit very well and was confortable under the jersey. But, I just didn't have the same sense of safety in that as I did in my others. Big rocks still didn't feel good hitting you in the chest with it on. So, I just got myself an adult (S/M) Fox Proframe LC on Black Friday for $49! I just got it in today and it fits really nice, especially with my Leatt. I really wish I would have found this a few years back. So if anyone has the same type of build as me and cannot find a chest protector they're happy with, give the Fox Proframe a shot. I remember making a few threads on my issue and nobody really had an answer (other than the EVS R4).
  12. I am wondering if there is a decent under jersey ptrotection system without having to go a size up? (I am already a 2xl)

    Been abusing Tekrider's latest creation, the "Crossover" vest, for almost a year now. Overall I've been impressed and really like the vest. The vest is geared towards mountain/backcountry snowmobilers and adventure/enduro/dualsport dirt riders. It offers a ton of ventilation, is cut taller for protection while standing up on the machine, and is designed for comfort when wearing a backpack. For those of you who wear neck braces, this vest is compatible with them. Fit and finish is what you'd expect from Tekrider - Their gear's expensive because it's worth it. You won't be disappointed. Unbelieveable airflow. By far their most heavily ventilated product. Compatible with most neck braces. Put the "Protection" into "Chest Protector". Fits great, cut taller for standing up while riding. Comfortable with a pack, and Comfortable wearing all day long. Dirt is where this vest really shines, even more than in the snow. With protection like my snocross racing vest, and more ventilation than my Freestyle, it's the best of both worlds.
  14. Hey Ladies, After breaking a rib this year, then injuring it again, I'm looking for an upgrade to my roost guard. I have a thor, which fits 'the girls' pretty well, but is like a front and back shell. No side protection. I'm looking at the leatt 5.5 or the alpinestar a-8. Those are the only two protectors of any style I've seen that look like they have rib protection. Has anyone tried one? I was able to try on the leatt, but I wasn't happy with the fit. Maybe if I spend some time adjusting it, but it seemed pretty tight on top. Any other suggestions? The stella bionic looks nice, but it looks like it doesn't have any rib protection either.
  15. Looking for some input on protective jackets. I sweat a ton when I ride, so something with good airflow is important...but I also crash a lot, so protection is equally important. In the past two years I've used the Thor Impact Rig, which was decent but didn't breathe all that well and both straps to the chest plates broke. Currently using the Fox Titan Sport Jacket and it also fails to really breathe well, also the extra support belt keeps coming undone, like the Velcro just isn't strong enough. On both, the zippers went to crap when riding without a jersey over top. Even if you spray them down very well. Any thoughts on the Alpinestars Bionic Pro Jacket? What do you wear and does it breathe well while still offering enough protection?

    GENERAL INFORMATION FOX champions demanded the most effective full-coverage roost deflector in the world, so they gave them the legendary Airframe: comfortable durable, and stylish. The Airframe uses world-class technology in offering unbeatable coverage in a traditional deflector style. Its tradition lives on. Shock-resistant, Lexan polycarbonate front and rear panels. Lycra-lined Bio-foam with comfort padding. Fully adjustable and removable arm guards. Removable back plate allows rider to wear as chest plate only. Kevlar-reinforced Torsion Hinge with two-piece rear panel. Adjustable shoulder connections for custom fit. The adjustability of the Fox Airframe chest protector makes it easier to fit this chest protector with a neck brace. (Note: Everyone is different and may require slight modification for best fit with a neck brace).
  17. I know that there are tons of forums about Atlas braces and chest protectors, but I'd like to wear a chest protector under my jersey instead of over it and still wear my Atlas. So does anybody else have experience with doing that or knows for a fact what protector will work like that?
  18. I'll be putting plenty of miles on my yz this summer and am looking for some tips for riding gear. I currently have a helmet, gloves, riding pants and a jersy. I defiantly want to start wearing riding boots, what's a decent inexpensive brand/model? Also, should I invest in a chest protector and/or knee pads? If so what would be the best for trail riding? I don't race so I'll be be ripping up trails and big sand pits, any info would be awsome, thanks!

  20. All, I"m sure a few of y'all have run into the scenario when you first put on a Leatt and decided it wouldn't work with your chest protector. So, I'm curious which models you went with. I know Leatt makes some specifically suited for this, but I'd like to get real world opinions on what has worked best for them. I ride trails with lots of loose stones but its also hot and I want to find a good compromise between protection and air flow. Thanks in advance!! GP
  21. Looking to get a camelbak for a scramble this month. Anyone have any suggestions of which to buy? I don't need a huge backpack with the ability to carry tools or anything.
  22. I have taken a great liking to riding without anything covering my core. Am I tempting fate by doing so? Does anyone else ride without any chest protection? I was reading about Nathan Wood. Granted I am not jumping table tops, but it got me thinking about even slow moving falls and hits to the chest...
