TPro Forcefield Back Protector Pro L2
**Measure from shoulders to waist for proper size**
CE Approved to EN1621-2:2003 and EN340:2003
Forcefield is a highly innovative back designed exclusively by Davies Odell to compliment its high performance body armour under their TPro brand. The Forcefield back is designed to be soft, flexible and comfortable. Therefore no hard inner or outer materials are used in its construction, as these have been known to have caused injury to riders in unforeseen circumstances.
What Performance level does the Forcefield achieve?
The Forcefield back achieves and surpasses level 2,the highest pass possible against the latest European draft standard ref: prEN1621 - 2 `which is officially known as "Motorcyclists Protective Clothing against mechanical impacts - Part 2" i.e. Motorcyclists Back. SATRA Technology Centre in the UK has stringently tested the Forcefield Back. CE documentation and performance tests are fully approved and supported by SATRA. All production is continually monitored both in the UK and Asia. By our working closely with `SATRA Technology Centre` and the `Protective Clothing Research Facility` at Cambridge University gives the consumer assurance that Forcefield down to its finest detail conforms to the latest CE requirements. The latest testing by SATRA of the Forcefield back protector transmitted only 4.93Kn to the body. (The maximum transmission allowed for level 2 is 9Kn). This is the ultimate in protection and comfort.
A combination of a unique triangular high tech shock absorbing material in conjunction with a different density base layer creates a versatile, soft and lightweight protective layer. The innovative design allows energy to be dispersed evenly across its surface therefore reducing areas of high-transmitted forces, which cause injury to the user.
Layers of high tech shock absorbing Nitrex foams offering soft, highly flexible and comfortable armour that moulds to the user's body. The layers of foam are perforated and stitched in such a way as to allow partial movement of the inner layers. This movement helps to pump air through the perforations allowing air to build up and move between the layers when in use. These air pockets assist in absorbing the impact, therefore increasing the level of protection.
The Forcefield shoulder straps are designed to be fully adjustable to give a satisfying fit. When adjusting the shoulder strap, as little tension as possible is required over the shoulder as the straps are designed to simply hold the back snugly to the body.
Each Layer of Nitrex foam has a series of holes specifically arranged to maximize performance and breathability. These perforations also aid in reducing weight and enhancing the comfort aspects of the product.
The Forcefield has a secondary waist adjustment strap that allows greater flexibility for achieving the optimum fit. The longer inner straps are secured in position firstly followed by the shorter outer straps that adjusts the tension to maximize comfort.
Forcefield is a brand synonymous with high performance protection, innovative design and with commercial acceptability in mind.
Back Protection for Motorcyclists
Only a few motorcyclists receive a direct blow to the spine causing serious injury; more spine injuries are probably due to direct blows to the shoulders and hips. The products commonly known as motorcyclists back protectors, if correctly designed and constructed may alleviate some minor direct impacts on the back, but will not prevent skeletal or neurological injuries to the spine in motorcycle accidents.
