SNOWBOARDING BODY ARMOUR & PROTECTION
Snowboarding protective gear isn’t just for pro snowboarders or freestylers; anyone who pushes their own limits or who just wants to help guard against injury should consider wearing some form of body armour.
Snowboarding body armour has become lighter and more comfortable in the past 3 seasons as more flexible materials and less rigid plastics are used; this is especially so with snowboarding back protectors. The drive for extra comfort has also seen imrprovements in body armour, as the new materials offer increased levels of shock absorption.
Forcefield have lead their way in soft protection and make some of the most highly regarded snowboarding back protectors and snowboarding protective shorts, regularly scoring excellently in industry tests. Included in the range is a back protector specifically for ladies.
Dainese are the market leader in body armour and their snowboarding protection shorts represent the very best in innovative materials, design and comfort. Their super-light snowboard back protector is equally impressive and so comfortable and light that you hardly notice it.
