How to choose a motorcycle protector, four points!

There are four points to keep in mind when choosing a protector: parts, attachment method, material and standard. I will explain each of these points in detail in the following sections.

What part of the body should be protected? The chest and back are especially important.

The first important body part to protect with a protector! After the head, the majority of motorcycle accident deaths are caused by the 'chest'.

In many cases, spinal injuries can also cause serious permanent injuries. To mitigate the damage from an accident, try to protect at least two areas, the 'chest and back'.

Of course, it's a good idea to be prepared for your shoulder, elbow, knee, hip and other parts of your body that are vulnerable to injury.

You can choose between "built-in wear" and "stand-alone type".

There are two main types of protector attachment methods: "built-in wear" and "stand-alone type". The "Built-in wear type" is a type of protector built into a motorcycle jacket or pants. In the 'Wear-Built-In' type, a protector is built into the motorcycle jacket or pants. In many cases, a protector is included as standard equipment. In some cases, the protector is integrated with the inner garment.

If you are a beginner, we recommend that you first purchase a motorcycle jacket that can be fitted with a protector. If you're going to ride your bike in your normal clothes, choose a protector that can be worn on its own.

Material Hard or Soft?

The next thing to look at is the material. There are three main types of protector materials.

  • Hard type (hard material)
  • Soft type (soft material)
  • Soft to hard (material that becomes hard upon impact)

It is recommended to choose the type of material depending on the part of the body to be protected.

Soft type and soft to hard type
Ideal for frequently moving parts such as shoulders, elbows and knees.
It does not interfere with your riding motion.

Hard type.
Ideal for areas with little movement, such as the chest and back.
Protect important areas well with the hard type.

CE standard

When choosing a protector, the "CE standard" is a safety standard that has been established in Europe. The CE standard is a safety standard established in Europe, and it is used in the United States and Europe for the sale of protectors with CE Certification is required.

In the certification test, we perform rigorous tests under conditions close to actual use, such as "cold weather" and "rainy weather". The CE standards include "CE Level 1" and "CE Level 2", with Level 2 being the more stringent safety standard.
CE standards include "CE Level 1" and "CE Level 2", with Level 2 being the more stringent safety standard. This is the case.
