Forcefield have a number of riders competing in the fiercely competitive British Superbike race series some of who have been testing their armour this season, here is just a few of the great comments we are getting back from them.

Danny Buchan - National Superstock 1000 Championship - Tingsao Kawasaki 
"My season was going really well until Donington, I got a little over eager on the first lap and joined the Craner Curves club! It was a pretty big crash and my back took the majority of the impact, thanks to Forcefield I was 100% fit afterwards"

Luke Hedger - British Supersport - Gearlink Kawasaki
"I've had to test the Forcefield Body Armour more times than I would have liked to this season and I know without it some of the crashes I had could have been much worse. The Forcefield products certainly do the job they are intended to do and I've had a couple of high speed crashes recently and walked away from all of them."

Jake Dixon - British Supersport - Appleyard Doodson Macadam Yamaha
"I had to test out all my Forcefield kit at Cadwell Park when I had a huge high speed crash into the first turn, luckily the conditions were wet so I slid for ages on my back after landing heavily on it when I high-sided. If I wasn't wearing the Forcefield back and chest protector at Cadwell I reckon I would have ended up with some broken bones."

Graeme Gowland - British Supersport - Smiths Triumph  "I had a pretty shocking start to the season, with the slippery conditions at Brands it caught me out twice and I was certainly feeling pretty second hand by the end of the weekend. I went on to Oulton and had another huge crash in the race whilst pushing for a podium position but crashed out at the super-fast Druids corner. The Forcefield did an awesome job as each time I landed on my back and each time I walked away, a little sore but nothing broken or damaged. It's great kit and went to Snetterton and took my first ever double win so things have improved massively but without the Forcefield kit I know I would have struggled."

Ben Wilson - British Superbikes - Gearlink Kawasaki  "As always the Forcefield Body Armour is really comfy I've had to give it a test run a couple of times so far, moving up to the Superbike class I keep having to find my limits. My biggest crash this season was at the last round at Snetterton in the opening race on lap one. I caught the back end of someone and we both crashed out, I took a huge impact to my chest and back. I raced the second race and gained a point but took myself to hospital the next day to have my chest checked out, thankfully nothing broken just bruising and I have to thank the Forcefield products for that, it really did do its job."
