I'm 58 years old, ride unpaved and dirt roads 95% of the time. Been riding since I was twelve, the belt extends my pain free ride time, and eliminates the soarness I normally get after 60 or so miles. Highly recommend it, excellent support.
I am over 200 pounds and 41 years old. I am not in a terrible shape but I was looking for a good help for my back, without feel too restricted. I love this belt. Is very light and I find very comfortable even in the heat of summer.
This is a great product and does what it's supposed to; however, I would like to have a taller and slightly more ridged design to add additional support.
I would recommend this over a lot of the other kidney belts out there though.
Great support for lower back especially when your ride starts with a long section of bumps and whoops. Lower back doesn't feel worn out 5 miles into the trail.
Very good product..
I didn't know which kidney belt would do what I wanted so I bought both this Fox Black Belt and the Fox Turbo kidney belt. I think things of this type are more often of a personal fit nature, but I can say that this Black Belt model has greater support than the Turbo. I am 6' tall and 135 pounds, so yeah - thin. But that doesn't mean I don't need or want support. This Black Belt is the best kidney belt I have ever used. It is a bit stiffer than the Turbo,. It still lets you move around but really does a great job with support. If your priority is that you really want support this is the one you want. Its also nicely vented with quality materials, so is comfortable even in 80 degree weather.
I am 57 and just bought and wore the black belt at unnadilla gncc race and it felt good the entire race!!I am pleased with this belt and would recommend it to any rider.
I bought this because I hurt my back and needed support but its too soft to actually provide support.
