Motocross chest protectors
The motocross chest protectors will prevent the stones of the other pilots from hitting your body and in case of a fall they will protect you from chafing and hitting the ground.
There are several types, from those that only protect your chest to the full body that covers your chest, back, shoulders, elbows and in some cases even wear a belt.
What should you keep in mind before buying a chest protector for motocross?
The first thing you have to decide is if you are going to use the chest protector inside the clothes or outside.
And then think about the level of protection you want to have.
Basically to greater protection greater weight and also less comfort.
The chest protector that are placed over the clothes are less tight to the body, so they offer you greater freedom of movement, but their protection is less, since they usually protect less area of the body and also in case of fall can move more than your position.
The inner chest protector can be of the vest type, that only protect you chest, back and clavicles and the so-called integral ones that are like a jacket stuck to the body with a multitude of protections. They are very hot in summer.
The material of all the chest protectors is usually a combination of fabric, foam and plastic, although lately there are many manufacturers that include the 3DS.
