Default Chest Protectors

     

I am looking for a chest protector. I want one with padding on the underside of the shoulder area. I have fallen before and hit the shoulder boy did it hurt and I was sore for 6 weeks after that. I would wear a football shoulder pad if I thought it wouldn't impead me and I could find a jersey big enough to go over it. So anyway input on who makes the best one for what I am looking for. To date the one I have seen that seems to fit the bill is the fox airframe. Let me know if you know of something with more padding in it.

DBD, I tried on everything I could get my hands on before finding my favorite. Bought the Thor Aftershock. It was the one that interfered the least with the bottom of my helmet when I turned my head. AND you can buy them now in the $50.00 range from several sources I hear. I would definately try them on......

The Fox Airframe is an excellent CP, I tried on all of the current chest protectors before settling on the Fox.

It provides good protection, and doesn't interfere with your movedment as some chest protectors do. I'd go with the Fox Airframe.

the problem i have seen with the airframe is that the chrome on the shoulder pads peels off quickly and looks bad. also for large guys it is just too small.

I agree with YP on the airframe, if you are a big guy, you can forget about the airframe. They are pretty small. A good friend of mine just got one and he is around the 170lb range I would say and it's a bit small on him. If I put it on it would barely cover my nipples.

I just got a Thor aftershock for $50.00 from

Bob cycle supply

They have them on close out so hurry if you want one.

I'm 6'0 & 235 & it seem to fit me ok, My old Fly got wrecked in a big crash, the only diffrence I really see is the front of the Thor aftershock is a little shorter. But it sem to fit me well. You will need to try on a few diffrent one's & find the one that fit's you best & than try & find a deal on one.
