The award winning and best-selling Forcefield Pro L2 back protector has evolved into the all new Pro L2K (Kevlar(r)), and is now constructed using Kevlar(r) thread for increased strength and durability. DuPont Kevlar(r) has 5 times the tensile strength of steel along with high cut and abrasion resistance and ensures the strongest back protector available just got stronger!
The ultimate all-use motorcycle back protector from Forcefield Body Armour.
Fully CE-approved to EN1621-2:2003 Level 2.
Reinforced with DuPont Kevlar(r).
Repeat Performance Technology (RPT).
Breathable and lightweight.
Anatomically and ergonomically designed.
Thickness: 23.5 mm.
Combined with NitrexEvo(r), a unique high-tech triangular shock absorbing material, the Forcefield Pro L2K (Kevlar(r)) back protector is designed to be soft, flexible and comfortable whilst still providing maximum impact protection and conforms to, and exceeds, the CE test EN1621-2:2003 Level 2, the highest possible level.
NitrexEvo(r) provides Repeat Performance Technology (RPT) to ensure that even after multiple impacts there is no loss of protective performance and 3D molds to closely fit the contours of the rider's back creating the ultimate in all day comfort.
The Pro L2K is constructed in multiple layers that are stitched and perforated in such a way as to allow partial movement of the inner layers. This movement has a dual purpose, to make the protector more comfortable by allowing it to mold to the body shape, and to pump air through the multiple perforations in order to build up and ventilate the space between it and the back when in use. Fully adjustable shoulder straps and double waist adjustment ensure a correct fit for different body shapes and sizes.
How does it work?
Forcefield Body Armour harnesses energy, slows it down and manipulates it into a lesser force before it hits your body. Where applicable, Forcefield Body Armour is made using a triangular grid material that they call Molded Nitrex Evo(r). This is made of interconnecting walls where the width of the wall at the base is always wider than at the top. This is triangular in shape and these walls all interconnect, which means that the material is structurally solid and sound. While the triangular shape they create is the 'mechanics' behind the high performance, the other important element is the formulation and technical layering system used. It's light and is robust. The ideal material is one that, on impact, compresses to a degree but then returns to its original shape and size. This means that you are maximizing the length of time so that as much energy can be absorbed as possible. So, on impact, what you are trying to do is delay as long as possible the moment of peak transmitted force. This force is what does the damage to the body. Forcefield Body Armour material slows the moment of peak transmitted force and spreads the damaging forces over the whole surface, which means that the material is used to its maximum.
Repeat Performance Technology:
Forcefield Body Armour has been designed to withstand multiple impacts. Most armor types deteriorate after an impact, making it un-usable and ready for the trash - not Forcefield. Their research shows that people do not throw hard armor / honeycomb types away after a crash (as they should), and instead carry on using it - yet now it is not fit for purpose. Take it a step further - in a serious, high speed crash where multiple strikes take place in the same incident, normal armor is getting weaker at the very time you need it to be strong. Forcefield Body Armour is as strong at the end of the crash as it was at the beginning, thus giving the wearer the best possible chance for the least amount of injury.
3D Molding Characteristics of Forcefield Body Armour:
Forcefield Body Armour is soft, moldable, breathable and the most non-restrictive material design available. After wearing for a short period of time, the armor custom molds itself to the wearer's body shape - therefore creating not only a two-dimensional shape of the body part, but a three-dimensional form, molding in all directions, wrapping perfectly around the body, becoming a part of the wearer. It has the ability to move and flex with the person wearing it and is not restrictive in any way - it becomes a second skin. Forcefield Body Armour is close fitting, slim and part of the body. And, it is breathable; each garment Forcefield Body Armour makes is perforated with thousands of holes to ensure the heat can pass through the product, maintaining body comfort at all times.
