Body Protectors: Designed to protect the rider's upper body in the event of an impact or a fall, a body protector protects both the torso and the back. Composed of several waffle foam pads to cushion and absorb impacts in the event of a fall and protect the spinal column, kidneys, rib cage and abdominal organs.
Back Protectors: As the name suggests, back protectors protect only the back. They can have a rigid, jointed shell or a foam pad inserted into a soft gilet. Back protectors are designed to be more comfortable than body protectors, offering the rider greater freedom of movement. While they are more discreet and less bothersome, you should remember that they offer a lower level of protection than a body protector.
