Back protectors

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has managed to sneak a peak at any of the pros back protectors at events, etc. You can sometimes get a look at Bincaz's, because it pops out the bottom of his untucked shirt. It looks to me like he's wearing a road race type hard shell articulated protector. As for the rest of them, I haven't seen any specifics. 

I ask largely because, without naming names, I've been 100% disappointed in the trials manufactured back protectors that I've tried. I'm thinking about going to something I'm familiar with from the road race world, but I wouldn't mind knowing what some of the pros have landed on now that they're being mandated.
