Read Forcefield's interview with Motorcycle Sport and Leisure magazine
In the November 2019 issue of Motorcycle Sport and Leisure magazine (https://www.mslmagazine.co.uk/)
Forcefield's Sales and Marketing Director, Matt Dawson, answers questions such as:
 
  • How do you know if a garment is protective or not?
  • How are different CE levels achieved?
  • Is it the pieces of armour that are the important bit, or the whole package?
  • What would be the ideal set-up for protection?

Pro Shirt XV2  - 4x3.jpg
Sport Shirt 1 - 4x3.jpg
Forcefield Body Armour has launched a new 2-tier Winter range of armoured clothing for snowboarders, skiers and skaters.

The Winter Pro Range comes in a new slate colourway, and comprises an armoured shirt, jacket, vest, pant, shorts and limb tubes. The Winter Sport Range comes in a new charcoal and cyan colourway, and includes an armoured shirt, jacket, pant and limb tubes.

Both the Pro and Sport range feature next-to-skin, technical base layers, constructed using the very best fabrics, and housing industry-leading CE armour. The high energy absorbing, super low profile CE approved armour is fitted into pockets, allowing it to be removed so the products can be machine washed for maximum hygiene.
Technological advances in armour manufacture, in terms of thinner, lighter and more protective construction - combined with engineered fabric and production techniques - make this 2-tier range truly the pinnacle of armour technology and sports protection.
It stays true to the original concepts of Forcefield being the most protective yet the most comfortable, breathable, lightweight and a non-restrictive system. Armour is tested to CE EN1621-1 and EN1621-2.
The Winter Pro Range is top end, fitted, high performance CE2 armour throughout and benefitting from large areas of breathable mesh (XV=X Vent) engineered into the BeCool™ technical base layer compression fit fabric. X Vents are sited in high heat areas, under and down the arm, down the body side and where the armour is positioned. The new slate colourway is classy and technical looking slate. BeCool™ fibre has a greater diffusive area than standard man-made or cotton fibres, allowing high levels of breathability, wicking and fast-drying. It is also anti-bacterial for freshness, even after multiple days on the slopes. During exercise, the unique shape of the BeCool™ fibre means it acts like a fan extracting hot and wet air away from the body and replacing it with cool and fresh air to help maintain core body temperatures in both cold and hot conditions.
The Winter Sport Range is more affordable yet still benefits from CE2 back and chest protectors, with Isolator CE1 arm and shoulder armour fitted as standard. There is no compromise on the quality of the armour. A close-fitting design means the armour sits where it should, and is less likely to move out of place in a crash. The technical, breathable base layer is high wicking and comes in a new charcoal with a cyan trim colourway. This should appeal to someone who appreciates high quality protection, wants lighter and slimmer arm and shoulder protection, or who might be spending to a lower budget.

The Forcefield Winter Range for the 2019/2020 season has been designed specifically for snowboarders, skiers and skaters to protect the body, whilst being as comfortable as possible.

Two exciting new Forcefield Body Armour products will soon be hitting the stores.

Sport Suit (CE1 or CE2) - Available from April
The Sport Suit is a totally unique product and an industry first. It’s an all-in-one under suit - a high performance base layer fitted with modular removable armour.

The Sport Suit’s primary use is underneath motorcycle leathers on track days. However, it’s also a practical option for adventure tour and travel riders.
 
A CE2 back protector is fitted as standard. As with Forcefield’s other armoured products, you can choose between Isolator CE1 or CE2 limb armour for the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee.
 
Click here for more information on the Sport Suit CE1 & CE2 and other armoured clothing.

Abrasion Resistant (AR) Knee Protector (CE1 or CE2) - Available from May
The Abrasion Resistant (AR) Knee Protector is easy to fit with a unique wrap-around fixing.
It can be worn next to the skin or over jeans - and is super comfortable making it ideal for commuter use, off-road and
touring.
It features abrasion resistant points where they're needed most; high tensile strength abrasion resistant fabric with internal coating is specifically located on the knee face and outer side of the knee.
Again, you can choose between Isolator CE1 or CE2 armour.
 
Click here for more information on the Abrasion Resistant (AR) Knee Protector and other body armour.

Where to Buy
These two exciting new products will be available soon from our network of retailers. To find your nearest Forcefield retailer please visit https://www.forcefieldbodyarmour.com/where-to-buy

Motorcycle News - Pro Sub 4K
Motorcycle News tested the Forcefield Pro Sub 4K over a 6-year period and 55,000 miles. It scored 5/5 for quality and 4/5 for value.
'If your jacket or leathers are already snug you'll want to avoid the Pro Sub 4K, because it's thicker than the average politician; but if you want top-notch protection, you've just found it.
It's a Level-2 protector, with tests showing it transmits less than 4kN of impact (it's claimed to be the first protector to do this). The outer is removable and washable and materials are high quality and durable. I covered over 45,000 miles in my last one (and 10,000 miles in this one).'

Motorcycle News - Pro L2K Dynamic
MCN Page 3_000153.jpg
Motorcycle News tested the Forcefield L2K Dynamic over an 8-month period and 5000 miles. It won the 'best comfort' feature and scored 4/5 for quality and value.
'The latest evolution of Forcefield's L2K protector is designed to be more comfortable than ever thanks to the innermost layer being softer and more pliable.
As a Level-2 protector, the Pro L2K Dynamic is one of the best performing back protectors on the market in terms of impact absorption, as it exceeds the performance dictated by the standard. I can vouch for this, too, having taken many a knocl wearing previous incarnations without injury.
I won't ride without it, on road or track.'

Forcefield launch industry first suit at Intermot - article first published on Visor Down website
The suit was revealed alongside a new armoured shirt and knee armour.

FORCEFIELD has launched an industry first one-piece body armour suit at Intermot 2018.

The Sport Suit is constructed of a breathable, moisture-wicking base layer material and features 9 armour pockets and a front zip entry. While back protection of CE2 is included as standard, riders will be able to choose from two armour options - Isolator CE1 or CE2 – elsewhere, allowing flexibility in terms of price, and armour characteristics.

The suit is designed for use under leathers on track, or as an adventure base layer. Riders planning to wear it on track should opt for the thicker CE2 armour, while adventure riders who ride off road in hot conditions, may well chose the CE1 option as it’s thinner and lighter and offers greater breathability. A compression fit keeps the amour in place on the body, making it less likely to move in an impact, in comparison with armour positioned in the outer garment.

The British protection manufacturer also launched its new A.R. Shirt and A.R. Knee Protectors – designed for use by adventure and enduro riders (A.R. standing for abrasion resistant). Both items are available with either CE1 or CE2 level protection and feature abrasion resistant material on points likely to come into contact with the ground. The jacket, which is similar to the brand’s pre-existing Pro Shirt XV – features additional ‘padding’ around the abdomen side area, while the knee guards also feature extra padding around the side. The areas behind the knee and under the armpits are left open to reduce heat and allow for better movement.

Finally, Forcefield revealed its new ‘Race Ready’ Chest Protector and ‘Freefit’ Back Insert. Both are CE1 items and feature a three-layer construction providing excellent ‘free fitting’ flexibility.

Forcefield back protector saves Speedway World Champion Jason Doyle
 
Yet again Forcefield Body Armour is proven in the real world!

Forcefield-wearing Speedway World Champion Jason Doyle crashed heavily at the Speedway GP in Wales at the weekend. Doyle was wearing a Forcefield Back Protector that in his words ‘100% saved me!’

Watch the clip here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxAuSEFS1fI

Time and time again Forcefield protectors pass the CE standards higher than other brands, when you watch this crash, you realise just why we work to such high standards. It is the reason our development guys work so hard to get the best impact performance - proven over and over again.

Doyle was released from hospital the next day with minor injuries.

Thank you Jason for trusting and believing in Forcefield.
