Dirt Bike Magazine have reviewed our Tornado Advance and Base Layer products in their May issue.
US-based Dirt Bike Magazine is a best-seller and covers all aspects of off road motorcycling.
'Tornado Advance is designed to create the best possible defence against extreme weather. Using Thermolite and Defender fabrics, the Tornado Advance blocks airflow from the outside by reducing windchill, all the while remaining breathable.
The Forcefield base layers are cool and thin. These base layers work like air conditioning for your body, forcing hot and humid air outwards, while keeping you cool and dry.'
Many thanks to Motonation, our American distributor, for sending in the article.
The editorial team at the world's best-selling mountain bike magazine, Mountain Bike Action, have tested and reviewed our Contakt Shorts in their May issue.
'Forcefield's Contakt Shorts are mountain-bike specific and have all the features a rider could ask for.'
'Once we spent 15-20 minutes in these shorts, we completely forgot we had pads on.'
Our Contakt Shorts were voted the 'most protective' shorts out of three brands on the market. A key feature - the longevity of performance - was also highlighted: Forcefield's Contakt Shorts 'continued to deliver top-notch performance ride after ride.'

'There are riding shorts, and then there's the Forcefield Contakt Short, which is designed for gruelling all-day rides in the saddle.'
Canadian moto magazine Motoplus.ca has just published a review of our Pro Vest X-V and Pro Shirt X-V.
'Concerned with the protection of motorcyclists, both on road and off-road, the British company Forcefield Body Armour presents its life jacket Pro X-V, the ultimate security protection to motorcyclists.
The Forcefield Pro X-V Vest is a modern worthy of Iron Man armour that fits under a combination of leather, off road jacket, enduro jacket or motocross shirt, whichever discipline that you practice. Designed to protect motorcyclists from shocks or falls, it incorporates a host of CE approved removable protections at the level of the elbows, shoulders, back and chest. These are housed in a garment of type Base Layer in BeCool, a highly technical and breathable fibre.
The Pro Shirt X-V is equipped with a large one-piece chest protector for better protection of the ribs and the sternum. It also has a side zipper for easy fastening. The Pro Shirt X-V has an ergonomic design to ensure optimum fit and comfort.
The protections of this armour are made in Nitrex Evo (elbows and shoulders) and NEVO 7010 (backbone and protects chest). Thanks to a three-dimensional moulding process, they fit perfectly on the shape of the body. These approved protections enjoy the RPT (Repeat Performance Technology) technology, which allows them to offer optimal protection even after multiple impacts.
The Pro Shirt X-V is made of a fibre technical synthetic antibacterial called BeCool that has an area larger than standard and provides fibre spreading comfort. During exercise, this fibre draws the hot air and moisture from the body outward to make place for cool and dry air. The ventilation of this vest is amplified by areas called Evo wind areas that offer management of heat and moisture, even in the hottest and wettest conditions.
A Pro-X-V-S version with short sleeves, and pants protection Pro Pants with the same technology, is also available.'
Forcefield Slam Shorts scored a 9 out of 10 from ski and snowboarding website Snow.Guide.
'I love the fact that these are designed for snowboarders and in cutting out the excess hip padding, the Slam Shorts are extremely comfortable with a low profile and I didn’t even realise I had them on most of the time.'

What better way of testing the performance of base layers, and temperature regulating, breathable body armour than a hard day on a dirt bike, in very cold temperatures.
Cold outside, working hard on the bike, getting hot, producing sweat, and then cooling right down again. An extreme test if ever there was one!
