Strengths:    Light, well ventilated, looks agressive

Weaknesses:    None that I've found yet.

Bottom Line:   
Great protection, it's not hot at all, very comfortable I don't even realize I have it on till it matters (in a crash). Protects very well in the event of a major crash. I'd reccomend this armor to any one who's looking for serious protection.

Date Reviewed: January 6, 2004

Strengths:    Fits on easily, looks cool, very light.

Weaknesses:    the bolts on one of the shoulders came loose easily but no big deal, does not cover much area of your body, its more of a motocross protector, but it would be good for just free riding stuff, not downhilling. I use it for downhilling because im a d|_|M8a55 and can't afford expensive 5417.

Bottom Line:   
If you freeride and you want some backup for your upper body this is great, i wouldnt pay 100$ for it, try to find it used, its worth 50$ or less if you find it at that price. i got lucky and found it for 24$ but the guy sent me 20$ since the bolt was gone, haha so i got it for 4$

Strengths:    It is quite light to wear, covers the body well, not that expenses

Weaknesses:    no arm protection, hot but they all get hot

Bottom Line:   
took a couple hard falls on the shoulder and back with this thing on and it saved both. flipped over the handlebars right into a pointed tree stump and it took a huge chunk out of the plastic. might not be the best but i like it.
peace

Date Reviewed: July 24, 2001

Strengths:    Light fitting
Movable
Not as warm as wearing a protective suit


Weaknesses:    Minimal padding

Bottom Line:   
For around $100 it could be one of the best investments in protective gear I've purchased. It is light and looks good wearing it in or out of the jersey. I have crashed many times, a couple very hard and have walked away from all although this was more or less made for protecting MXer's from flying debree. It could maybe use a little more padding for the back and chest, but it does it job and that's all that matters to me
