Safety Champion's reputation is built on safety and again with the FlexAir we are leading the way. Meeting the NEW 2009 EN 13158 Standard, Champion is at the forefront of research and innovation. On this model we have also incorporated a buckle safety clip, to further enhance rider piece of mind. Flexibility Through the combination of our ultra lightweight multi layered nitrile foam, and the unique positioning of ventilation holes, Champion has created a supremely supple yet secure feel with the FlexAir. This high level of flexibility is perfect for any riding position, and ensures a most comfortable fit to the protector. Breathability Having listened to our customers we believe this function is of the upmost importance to a body protector. Therefore making the FlexAir cool to wear became of paramount importance in the early design stage. We enlisted the help of some of the Worlds elite riders to help us address this issue. Through the exclusive combination of our foam ventilation holes, and outer lining spacer fabric cover, we have created one of the most breathable body protectorS ever seen on the market. Lightweight Again Champion has understood the need for comfort when riding. We have sourced our materials accordingly with this in mind. Our NItrile foam is one of the lightest available today giving the FlexAir a feather light feel. Antibacterial Stables, Horses and long rides can combine to create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. That is why Champion has treated the FlexAir's inner mesh lining with Polygiene. Through the use of environmentally friendly silver ions Polygiene kills bacteria on contact. In fact Poloygiene is currently being used in British hospitals to help prevent the spread of MRSA. What this means for you the rider is an odour free, longer lasting, fresh feeling lining; minus all those nasty bacteria's.
I have just received my Body Protector which I got for a super price. I am thrilled with it. I agree that they are not the most comfortable things to wear but when you weigh that up against the safety aspect there really is no competition!
