Great product This back protector is made extremely well and fits great. I have it in my Alpinestars Jaws Perforated Leather Jacket and it doesn't affect the fit of the jacket at all. The snap system makes it easy to take it in and out of the jacket. July 21, 2014
Great product Bought this back protector to go under a couple of alpinestars jackets. Comfortable and easy to use. Highly recommend. June 17, 2014
Great product This product is not uncomfortable at all under the suit and I highly recommend this for anyone ordering an A Stars racing suit. June 3, 2014
Can't go wrong with it. Great protection level fits nicely with Alpinestar jackets. May 20, 2014
Nice fit, barely noticeable I use these between my suit and jacket, I have to -1 star because the snap on doesn't stick that well. It usually unsnaps when putting my suit on, and as if putting a suit on isn't already hard. Having to awkwardly resnap the bp kinda sucks. But overall, great bp and form fitting. April 15, 2014
Does its job Fair price for a quality back protector. Snap in system works perfectly with my Alpine GPR Leather jacket. Wouldn't know it was there if it weren't for the waistband. Overall, worth the money so long as you have a jacket with the snap system, otherwise it wont be very secure. April 14, 2014
Replace that skinny foam pad! Bought this piece of protection for use in the Alpinestars Celer jacket. The Bionic Race Back Protector includes a snap that fastens to one of the three snaps in the back of the jacket, holding it in place while the jacket is not being worn. The waist strap on the protector secures it firmly after the jacket is on. The Bionic Race Back Protector offers CE-certified protection and is light and comfortable, with adequate ventilation. I ordered the small/medium, and although I have a 31" waist, the elastic/Velcro strap is rather snug, but not uncomfortably so. This piece is a must to replace the thin foam backpad that is included in most Alpinestars jackets. April 14, 2014
Great Backprotector Great Price I dont usually buy clothing where i can not try on but revzilla has a great return policy. The quality of the protector is top notch. The back proctor fits great. I'm 5"6' 160 lbs and the med fits perfect. In my alpinestar carver suit it also fits perfect. I was worried it would be hot and uncomfortable but after a couple sessions at the track i forgot i had it on. The snap is nice and snug when it connects to the suit. Definitely recommend to other who wear alpinestar suits. August 15, 2013

Michael P: This back protector connects at the top with a male snap at the top center of the plate. I use mine on a one-piece Alpinestars suit that has a female snap on the upper inside (just below the neck) mounting point. This is how the back protector is stabilized up top. It is stabilized on the lower section by the use of the waist straps. The lower section will not get in the way of the jacket/pants connection as it is strapped against your back by the waist straps. If your two piece jacket does not have this top snap then I would think that you would either have to modify the jacket or buy a back protector with shoulder straps. Or if your jacket has a pocket for a back protector insert, use one of those. I would also recommend a quick call to Revzilla customer service and they can verify the compatibility of your gear.

Matt P: I've worn mine with a one piece suit or with a jacket and riding pants. The very bottom of the Bionic Race will ride over the top of the pants. Not a big deal for me. In your case, it would depend on how close fitting the combo is at the pants/jacket connection. Something else to consider: The Bionic Race has a button snap on the top, designed to be tethered to an A-stars jacket or one piece to keep the protector in place. Having said that, I've jerry-rigged a solution that worked. Without the tether, the waist strap may not be sufficient to keep the protector in it's proper orientation in the event of a crash.

Khaled S: It should not get in the way of the connection, BUT I stopped using it because I crashed with it and it did not offer any tail bone protection and minimal shoulder protection (in other words, it sucked and I got bruised pretty bad). I suggest something with a little more coverage like the Forcefield Pro Sub-4 Back Protector. That will be a little annoying when you are trying to zip the pants to the jacket, but I think it's worth it. If you can do a one piece suit, I would suggest that as an alternative. Otherwise, pants/jacket should have a 360 zipper, not just a partial connection... I hope that helps. Aug 9, 2013

Brian M: It will not interfere with the pants-jacket connection. The only attachment to your jacket is the one single snap at the top of the shell (your Astars jacket probably has a matching female snap (or row of 3 snaps: Lo-Med-Hi) in the lining). Other than that one snap, this Back Protector is worn like a separate back protector. I got mine for my one-piece suit, but I plan to wear it under other jackets, even non-Astars; it just won't snap in place at the top. It will go a little below your waist, so your pants have to have a little extra room, but not much. Aug 9, 2013

Thomas O: (Sorry it got cut off)
You will feel it hitting the zipper a bit based on body position, but I don't notice it too much. Order it too long, and then it will extend beyond the 360 zipper and be really uncomfortable when your top is zipped to your bottom. I use one with a gpr and air flow pants, and I have had no interference. Just make sure you order the correct size based on revzillas recommendation, that's what I did, and I have no problems

Bruno B: It is suitable - I have combination of Alpinestars GP Plus pants(size 54 tall) and GP-R jacket (size 56). Back protector fits nicely on mid and lowest position of the attachment lip within the jacket. Aug 9, 2013

David V: Not sure about that jacket/pants combo, but the protector doesn't go down to the tailbone so it should be ok. It's a nice protector and you forget you have it on ... very comfortable. Aug 9, 2013

Clement N: It won't get in the way. The back protector is supposed to cover the tailbone as well, so it should actually tuck in inside of the pants. Aug 13, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi,

I am wondering how its possible to wear this back protector without a jacket/suit with the snap system?

It does not have straps over the shoulders, so how will it stay still, or du you have to buy som kind of vest with the snap system?

RevZilla: Theoretically it could be used with any proper-fitting race suit or jacket as the tension of the garment will likely help keep it in place. For a more universal fit and greater peace of mind, you may want to consider the Alpinestars Bionic Back Protector instead as it is the same back protector but includes shoulder straps. Mar 8, 2013

Mark d: I wear this spine protector with all jackets and suits, every time I'm on a bike. It's always where it should be.

(My suit/jackets are snug and I never wear [slippery moisture-wicking] fabric underneath. I'm in good shape and ride with good posture, the none-race version can give you better belly/ posture support, and can be worn with a puffier jackets)

(I crashed my track bike at 140mph/225kmh into the dirt, and hit a wall at probably about half that speed. Witnesses thought I broke my back. (I broke my wrist, everything else was 100%) This protector looked a little dented. but was still forward-flexible and still doesn't allow hyper-extension. CE-level2 protection is important. I'm buying a new one and one for passenger.)

RevZilla: The Bionic Race back protector comes in 3 sizes, and the correct size that you need depends on how you use the back protector. If you use the back protector with an Alpinestars Jacket or Suit that accepts the snap system from the top of the back protector you will want to follow these guidelines:

Size Small Back Protector: Men's Jacket/Suit size 46, Women's Jacket/Suit size 38-40
Size Medium Back Protector: Men's Jacket/Suit size 48-56, Women's Jacket/Suit size 42-50
Size Large Back Protector: Men's Jacket/Suit size 58+
If you plan on using this back protector without a jacket or suit that works with the snap system, you will want to base sizing on the following guide:

Size Small Back Protector: Torso height of about 20inches, waist size range of 20-43.5inches (widest area across the top of the protector is 9.5inches)
Size Medium Back Protector: Torso Height of about 20inches, waist size range of 23-46.5inches (widest area across the top of the protector is 9.5inches)
Size Large Back Protector: Torso height of about 23inches, waist size range of 28-49.5inches (widest area across the top of the prote

Christian B: Hey guys !
I got a GPR jackes size 56eu. I'm 5'11" tall. tried a M from a friend of mine. protector seems to fit very well but i wasn't able to close the waist strap in a way that it felt comfortable due to my waist size. Is there a waist strap extension, do I have to go a size up, what would be your suggestion, besides loosing some weight ;-P ?!
