Forcefield Action Shorts
Available with 4-Layer Pro M15 Armor, the Forcefield Action Shorts incorporate an air flow control function which controls body temperature during exercise. This helps to maintain body temperature whether the conditions are warm or cool leaving you dry and feeling fresh, as well as providing impact protection in vital areas.
The Action Shorts are constructed from BeCool, a unique fiber that has a greater diffusive area than standard fiber, to ensure a high level of breathability and comfort. The CE Approved armor is removable to allow the shorts to be machine washed for maximum hygiene. M15 armor is a specialized polymer made from Nitrile rubber that has been optimized to achieve low weight, flexibility and Repeat Performance Technology (RPT) ensuring protection is given even after multiple impacts.
Fastened at the waist by a drawcord and with gripper elastic at the legs, the shorts offer superior fit and comfort. The Forcefield Action Short offers unparalleled comfort and performance for those demanding sports activities where impacts are an inherent occurrence.
Armor is CE approved
- 4-Layer Pro M15 Armor passes just 9Kn of impact force (lower than the CE Level 2 Certification, though the shorts only carry CE Level 1 Certification)

- Removable armor at the thigh, hip, buttock and coccyx
- RPT (Repeat Performance Technology)

Reviews & Questions
"The 3 layer (Sport Armour) and the 4 layer (Pro Armour) protectors use different material although both are rubber based polymers. The Sport Armour is 16.5mm thick whereas the Pro Armour is around 15mm so not much between then. The Sport armour is softer and much lighter in weight. The performance at Ambient for the Sport Armour is around the 27KN figure. The Pro Armour is denser, slightly less flexible than the Sport Armour and heavier but offers much better impact attenuation. The Pro Armour was designed for those riders who wanted the most protection no matter what. The recorded figure at Ambient was 13.1KN."
After hearing this, I decided I would return the Sport version and immediately ordered a Pro version to replace them. Having both versions to review, I can say the forcefield support was right on. The 4 layer is actually a bit thinner than the 3 layer. Also the 4 layer is the classic forcefield triangle nitrex evo while the Sport is a polymer.
So, for me it doesn't make much sense to order the Sport - because it's thicker and offers less protection (Level 1 Sport compared to Level 2 Pro). The Pro is a bit heavier, but marginally so.
Both versions are quite bulky. I wear Bull-it riding jeans that fit a bit loose with no armor. With all the pads in place, there is no way to get the jeans over the shorts. That's fine, because my plan was to remove the thigh and butt cheek pads - wearing only the hip and tailbone pads. With this setup, my jeans are snug but not overly so.
Overall, I love this armor. I feel very protected and confident wearing it.
I felt a bit out of breath and my right side upper body hurt a bit but nothing too bad. I got up and my friends helped me get the bike back up and we stopped about 1/10th of a mile down the road at a gas station.
Come to find out later that, while wearing the Forcefield armored shirt and shorts combo under my Olympia suit, I had broken a rib or two (probably when the bike forced my arm to slam into my ribcage). Had I not been wearing the gear, I'm 95% sure I'd have done a lot more damage including probably a broken hip, shoulder, and clavicle, but obviously this is speculation based on which body parts hit and how hard. The gear definitely helped soften the blow. I realize it's not common to include rib protection but that certainly would have helped me avoid the break. Otherwise, I love the gear and wear it everywhere, all the time - street, track, and offroad.
I purchased the 4-Layer Pro M15 Armor in a size medium to go under fully Kevlar lined jeans which I had purchased at the same time (went up a size in the jeans expecting these to be pretty bulky). The armor is right around 1.6 cm thick and is pretty impressive. While I think the protection element is awesome (just hitting on it to get an idea) I am hoping never to test them out in a crash--though if I do I will see about coming back to add a comment about how they held up.
The fit in the waist is good (34" waist) and the thighs are spot on (have 26" thighs which can make a lot of products fit too tight). I was less than impressed by the addition of a drawstring on the waistband since they don't add any value to me but they might for someone with a smaller waist. The silicone at the leg openings is a nice touch which helps some in keeping the armor where you want it. However, I have noticed the shorts do move around a bit when walking so if I gear up at work and then go out to the bike (about 1/4 mile) then I usually end up readjusting them before I get on the bike.
Living in AZ another consideration was air flow while wearing this product. The armor itself doesn't seem to flow a lot of air (if any) through it but it does help to create pockets of air between my pants and legs around the armor which in turn helps a little with air circulation. Right now, while the temps are bouncing between the 40's and 80's F during my commutes they are comfortable to wear. If they become unbearable this summer when temps start jumping upwards of 120 then I will try and come back to update this review with that information.
One thing I wasn't expecting, though actually prefer, is that the 4-Layer Pro M15 Armor version isn't the same light bluish-grey color that is pictured. It is actually a dark grey. It is a small detail that is relatively unimportant compared to the fit and function of the shorts but was a bonus.
Overall they seem like a very solid product, I am happy with my purchase, and I have already recommend this product a couple of times to some friends at work (especially one who is just starting to ride again after two years of recovering from a motorcycle accident which has left him a little skittish on the bike).
My only complaint is that they do not fit comfortably under my kevlar riding jeans, which already have a relaxed fit. I'm considering removing one layer of padding all around (there are 3 layers originally) to see how that would change the fit under my jeans. I don't know how much this would affect the protection which is why I haven't done it yet.
Overall a great product.
6'3" 210 pounds, rather large, round, um butt. Large ? Want them snug enough that they keep the armor in place but not so snug that it causes them to fail or wear out prematurely.
Bought a medium for the BF (5'9" 150lbs) and also a little big in length and width.
Because of the padding, these are pretty snug shorts. They only problem we have with armor moving is the thigh pads creep down until they are hitting our knee pads. Otherwise, they stay put and we really don't notice them when riding at all. Hope this helps.
