Body protector, back protector, airbag : which equipment do you use, why and what brand would you recommend?
Hey Molly!
I use a hit air bag protector. I like it because it fully covers and protects the lower spine when deployed. It’s also quite light and easy to maneuver in.

Hello Molly :) I have a back protector, I'm quite happy with it, however I had a bad fall few weeks ago, I fell on the stomach and maybe a body protector or an airbag system would've been better... I am thinking out purchasing an airbag from Helite, I've only heard good things about them !
Hello :) I have the new racesafe ones, provent 3.0. They're so light and I don't even feel them! I would totally recommend them ;)
Hi !
I also have an airbag, it is a huge improvement in our sport. I feel really safer when I wear it especially in jumping. It has help avoiding big injuries to a lot of famous riders.
Of course I need to wear a classic body protector for cross country in case it doesn't inflates (which almost never happen).
Have a nice day :)
Hello Molly ! I have a Hit Air's body protector, I love it and I think it's the best body protector on the market ! Unlike other body protector I don't feel stuck when I ride with it, I'm free and that was the main problem I was facing with other types of protection :)
