Exclamation Abdominal protection

I am very much safety orientated when i get on my r6 and wouldn't even consider putting a leg over it without the bare minimum of gear which is for me:

full leathers + back and chest protectors + helmet + gloves + boots

or id wear all of the above except leather pants and use kevlar jeans with knee protectors underneath instead.

I also often ride with my airbag dps vest by spidi

But i still feel there is a lack of protection in the abdominal area, no protection from impalement or anything like that and seeing as its a crucial area containing lots of organs it would seem only sensible to protect it with more than leather!

Any ideas?

Re: Abdominal protection

Where do you go wearing all that? I'm all for proper protection but there comes a point where you go from due diligence to paranoia heh.

anywhere and everywhere... what so difficult about putting the following on... i dont even notice any of it is there!



that ^ just straps up over your top and your good to go... jacket, kevlar jeans, helmet and boots are pretty much standard...

if you have ever come off and hurt yourself youll know why i wear the above...

the spidi defender is CE 2 certified

it sounds like you have the same idea as me... well done for being safety conscious!

i was going to go for the neck brace but decided against it, ive got a spidi neck dps vest instead, so i get all the movement and comfort as usual and if anything goes wrong, the airbag sets off, top notch stuff!

the vulnerable areas i am most concerned about now are tummy/abdominal and hips... they say a strike to the hips is often what causes back injuries and not direct hits to the spine because it is twisting of the spine that causes the bad injuries!

Re: Abdominal protection

I run my knox back and chest protector. Honestly any lower and it would restrict too much movement.
