SKIING BODY ARMOUR & PROTECTION
Skiing protective gear isn’t just for pro skiers 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.
Skiing 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 skiing back protectors. The drive for extra comfort has also seen an improvement 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 skiing back protectors and skiing protective shorts, regularly scoring the highest marks in tests. Included in the range is a ladies specific back protector with different shaping.
Dainese are the brand leader in action sports protective clothing and their skiing protection shorts represent the very best in materials, design and comfort. Their super-light ski back protector is equally impressive and so comfortable when on that you hardly notice it.
