Strengths: Good support. Looks a lot cooler than the girdle-looking support belts. Makes my gut look smaller.
Weaknesses: Kinda pricey but you pay a bit for style. Is this thing supposed to vent? Does anyone think a support belt could look cool?
It's never cool to have to ride with a support belt but this one looks pretty good. I guess the plastic/rubber bumper in the back suposed to give some protection too. I just got into freeriding and the new rig is easily twice the weight of my roadbike. Factor that into the climbing, pushing, falling, lifting involved with freeriding and one can see where a girdle (oops, support belt) may be needed.
