Default Hard armor!

Am starting out of a sportbike...ninja250 of course

Was wondering which company sells hard armor for shoulder/elbow, back, and chest?

I was referred to KNOX CE armor before, but they have no hard armor shoulder.

I was trying to look for something that I can replace soft foam armor with within the jacket....instead of an INTERNAL worn armor..that cannot be incoporated INTO the jacket itself.

Thanks for the help!

Check out Forcefield armor from Welcome to Johnson Leather Corp.. I'm sure there are other options.

I found this from Knox...but I don't know if these "replacements" are better than that of the stock shoulder/elbow ce approve armor of alpinestar jacket..

I'm not sure what CE level the Knox replacements are....I'm assuming they are also CE level 1?

I replace my generic armor with stuff from here: Motorcycle Armor - HIGH Performance Armor Knowledge for Motorcyclists

I also got a back protector from them for when my risk assesment rises.

I've found claims ect.. for armor to be at best interesting and at times confusing. Good luck.

If you're on a budget or maybe want to spend moderately until you see where you're going with motorcycles, check out Cycle Gear's "Motoboss" line. They have a variety of armor; either hard style vests etc. or jackets and pants with removable armor. Available online at Cycle Gear - Motorcycle Apparel, Parts and Accessories or your nearby retail outlet, staffed with friendly, knowledgeable riders in a relaxed, clean environment.

Mention "Klazy Ken" at the checkout counter and get a 15% discount on all purchases of $200 or more!
