Back Protector ???

Do back protectors like the alpine stars nucleon KR-2 fit into most suits universal status? Or are they specific to suits like alpinestars only will work for alpinestars suits and so on?

They are not suit specific. Should fit in any suit that has the space just fine.
AlexZX6R and Felixthecat like this.

Thanks JD41! Been looking into getting once since the one with the suit isn't the best.

Yup. Just make sure on getting the right measurements. If its too long it'll interfere with your helmet at the neck.

It bears noting that once you get a hard CE back protector, you remove the foam one from your suit =).

This actually reminds me; I should probably get around to selling the 4 or 5 back protectors that I have sitting around.

Well I'd buy one if you have some extras haha. I was looking into the alpinestars nucleon KR-2 but what is out there I haven't really looked into it haha. What do you SLO and JD41?

I personally run Knox but I am pretty sure I have at least one Rossingol, A*, Icon, and probably a Knox or two laying around...most have never been worn.
