back protector


as per the rule book :if the suit is not equipped with an integrated back protector of suitable construction and coverage (recommended from base of neck to the tailbone), the rider must wear a suitable back protector under the suit. Back protectors meeting European Standard CE EN1621-2 Level 2 are recommended.

Both my suits have the standard "ce approved" body armour. Is this enough to pass tech or is it better to be safe and have something like the alpinestar nucleon or equivalent as extra?


what suits do you have? i dont see many with CE approved back protectors pre-installed. most have CE rated shins, knees, shoulders and eblows with optional room for chest and back.
