It's good
It's good
I was looking for a D3O back protector because I thought it was the best armour but the astars is actually better. It's really comfy and covers most of the spine. I wear it on the streets with the chest plate

Really Impressed
Really Impressed
I purchased this back protector as a upgrade from my old Knox Aegis bp that I've owned since the first model release and it's been great. Now onto the Astars nucleon Well what can I say Im really impressed with this back protector I'm 5'6" and ordered a medium it's a perfect fit. It follows the contour of your back and is very comfortable with good ventilation. I also own a Forcefield pro L2 as well and this gets really hot in summer and feels really stiff when you first put it on and doesn't follow the contour of your back until it gets warm so I don't use this back protector very often I'm not bagging the Forcefield out it's just my opinion and I think if the gear your wearing is not comfortable it's distracting when riding and really your not going to wear it. Bikebiz are great to deal with I was also really impressed with how quick my order got to my door as I live Up near the Gold Coast and my order came from Sydney. I ordered the BP in the afternoon Thinking it's going to take 3 or 4 days to get here but it was delivered the next day!

Better than expected.
Better than expected.
I am 188cm and got a Large which fits me well. Happy with the removable straps which makes it similar to the KR-R version if I want to wear it under my race suit. Can barely notice it after a long day and it breathes really well when the sun turns it on.

Super pleased with this purchase. I wear a EU 40 jacket and the XS fits perfectly, the straps around the waist are fantastic and ensure that the protector is comfortable - I forget its on after a few minutes. Bikebiz were amazing as always

Comfortable, really well made (as you'd expect from Alpinestars) and you'll forget you're wearing it after five minutes. Straps have plenty of adjustability, as does the waistband which is a bonus compared to other brands. I'm 180cms tall and 80kgs. Large fits perfectly. Usual first class service from Bikebiz too!

Use this for touring and general riding. You forget that you are even wearing it after about 5 mins which is probably the highest praise I can give it. A great product and I am more than pleased with it.

Great for racing

Nice slimline design, fits well under the race suit and still allows for plenty of movement. Waist strap can be adjusted to sit either higher or lower depending on your body length. I'm 5ft10 and 80kg and I bought a medium and it is a perfect fit. And as always with my many orders from Bikebiz the service is perfect.
