Alpinestars Bionic Race Back Protector
perfect addition to Alpinestars gear
Bought this thing for my Alpinestar motegi suit and it fits perfect. The suit has the snap for the top part and the waist strap keeps it in place but feels like i have nothing on. my suit fits me perfect but was always a little loose in the chest. Aplinestarts made this back protector and suit to fit together perfectly.

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.

Bought this back protector to go under a couple of alpinestars jackets. Comfortable and easy to use. Highly recommend.

This product is not uncomfortable at all under the suit and I highly recommend this for anyone ordering an A Stars racing suit.

Can't go wrong with it.
Great protection level fits nicely with Alpinestar jackets.

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.

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.

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.
