Talking Forcefield Back Protectors for the laaaadies



if anyone is looking for back protectors for their female counterparts ... I'm ordering the female version of the Forcefield Pro back protector since it fits us ladies better!

No. I was looking at getting one for Brianne though. They are supposed to be the best out there for street riding.

Considering the cost, you're probably going to be the first to buy one.

Actually I've been looking at getting a back protector. Have you tried this one on yet Michelle? Does it fit over your boobies?

I've looked at the forcefield products. The impact absorption of the material is absolutely amazing. They're pretty darn comfortable as well. The one thing they are lacking is rigidity. There isn't anything to keep the back from flexing in the other direction in an impact.

They also aren't into full production on all their products so be sure they're going to ship to you in a reasonable amount of time.

It like to see this material underneath another harder outer shell.

Quick question. How is a ladies back protector different from a mens? They strap around your abs not your chest?

They have spine protectors, full upper body jacket type armor, they have a chest protector. Some wrap around toward the front more then others.

I ordered mine today so as soon as I get it, I will give you all my personal review. If you'd like to check it out yourself, I should have it for the STT track day at Autobahn on the 26th and 27th

from what I've read on the internet

Women's features a 2 inch higher waist band to fit the female form
I think the whole thing in general is designed for the smaller framed female body. Like I said, I'll let you know as soon as I get mine, or if you want to check it out for yourself, let me know.

thats great they are starting to design stuff like that.

which is why its important to interact with such organizations to start changing or tailoring to such needs.

Meech so this is for track riding, or you wearing it on the street too Because they are insanely uncomfortable after 4 hours

I have the T-Pro Forcefield. Pretty comfortable after a days ride. Dont even notice it there after it forms to your back.

They should make it like the female sparring protectors with the massive jug cutouts.

alright, it's completely comfortable and it fits VERY WELL!!! It's nice because the strap is placed higher up so when you're on your bike it doesn't bunch up into your stomach. And the main thing I like about it is that the back part of it doesn't bunch up into my neck at all!!! (that's my technical report ).

If anyone wants to see it in person come on out to STT this weekend...
