Hey Everyone!

I am just trying to recover from a lower back injury and I was wondering if anyone here has tried riding with a lower back brace and whether that was useful for eliviating the pressure on the lower back. Also, if you tried any specific ones, I would appreciate if you could list them.

Thanks,

Pedro

I've never tried a back brace but have used a kidney belt used for motorcross and if you can still breate it goes a long way in supporting your lower back.

Thanks Will!

I will look into those, too. I guess I can try different ones and see how well they work.

Thanks, again

Tried that. I have the 661 belt/girdle as well. Can't really breath well when the riding got hard. Plus in the drop position, it binds and gets downright uncomfortable.

I use this

I can't say it helps a whole lot though.
