(October 2019)
American publication, Backroads Magazine (www.backroadsusa.com), have tested and reviewed the Forcefield Sport Suit this Summer. Here is an excerpt of their review:
'Forcefield Body Armour Sport Suit takes the base layer concept to another level.
 
The suit is supremely comfortable and breathable, it incorporates compression fit technology and is equipped with a CE2 'Freefit' back insert.

Our new Winter Pro Shorts X-V 2 feature in Whitelines Buyer's Guide for 'Best Snowboard Protection 2019/20'
(October 2019)
Forcefield's new Winter Pro Shorts X-V 2 feature in this year's Whitelines Buyer's Guide in the 'Best Snowboard Protection 2019/20' category. Here is an excerpt of their review:
'Forcefield’s latest offering can’t stop you from falling over, but they can cushion the blow. Designed using extra breathable base layer material, and reinforced with pre-curved armour pieces to protect your most vulnerable areas, these impact shorts are the ultimate in booty protection.
 
They extend round to wrap the hips and coccyx too, so you’re all set to go bombing down the hill. They’re not just for park rats or slalom racers, half the point in protection is to give you peace of mind against other mavericks smashing in to you on the hill. The open mesh covering is more breathable, and lighter than ever before so you’re left with their most comfortable short to date.'

Forcefield Ultra-Lite appears in Whitelines Buyer's Guide for 'Best Snowboard Protection 2019/20'
(October 2019)
Whitelines have chosen our Ultra-Lite back protector for their 'Best Snowboard Protection 2019/20' category in this year's Buyer's Guide. Here is an excerpt of their review:
'Gone are the days of showing up to the mountains looking like Ross Geller’s Holiday Armadillo. Forcefield’s Ultra-Lite Back Protector provides all the impact absorption to make those reverse tacos, knuckle checks and apres stacks all the more bearable.

At only 19.5mm thick, it offers plenty of mobility, flexibility, and breathability. With full adjustments around the hip and shoulder straps, you can get a perfect fit and ride wall day without your base layers riding up and leaving you looking like you’ve been put on a spin cycle for too long.
 
Forcefield have made a name for themselves with their Nitrex Evo technology. It has incredible energy absorbing properties and is able to disperse the point of impact over the entire protector to dissipate the shock before it sends tremors right through your body.
 
Whether you’re spending your season in the park, out in the backcountry, or just dodging weapons between the pistes, this thing has fully got your, uhm… back.'

(October 2019)
Thank you to Motorcycle Gear Hub (www.mcgearhub.com) for this review:
'If there’s a take-home message to be had from this review is that the Sport Shirt has proudly carried on the Forcefield tradition of high-end epic armored undershirts.
 
So, if you’re shopping around for an armored undershirt that has it all, then stop your searching and just go and buy a Sport Shirt.
 
And, even if you’re not in the market for an armored undershirt, do yourself a big favor and still get yourself a Forcefield Sport Shirt.'

Forcefield Sport Pants receive a 4.5/5 from Motorcycle Gear Hub
(September 2019)
Thank you to Motorcycle Gear Hub (www.mcgearhub.com) for this review:
'Without exaggeration, the Forcefield Sport Pants not only have everything in them to rightfully earn their labeling as apex predators sitting atop the armored-underpant food chain but these underpants also have heaps and gobs to spare of everything and anything that is required to be classed as must-purchase-now motorcycle gear.

If you, as a motorcycle rider, are looking for protection, comfort, fitment, versatility, functionality, quality and durability in an armored underpant, then stop searching now and grab the Forcefield Sport Pants because these armored underpants have an excess of those same qualities that you’re looking for!

Forcefield Abrasion Resistant (AR) Knee Protector achieves a perfect score of 5/5 from Motorcycle Gear Hub
(August 2019)
Thank you to Motorcycle Gear Hub (www.mcgearhub.com) for this review:
'Making strap-on knee armor that satisfies the comfort aspect demanded by day-long riders is an arduous conundrum as demonstrated by much of the AR Knee Protector’s competition being nothing more than 30-minute-long armor. Forcefield has put its team’s efforts into designing and building a strap-on knee protector that, as usual with the brand, over-delivers and fearlessly takes on the competition.

The result? The exceptional product that is the Forcefield AR Knee Protector.

Forcefield Sport Suit receives a 4.5/5 from Motorcycle Gear Hub
(August 2019)
Thank you to Motorcycle Gear Hub (www.mcgearhub.com) for this review:
'The Forcefield Sport Suit is a revamped and improved concept of motorcycle under-armor that takes the use of armored undershirts and underpants to a new level. Does said concept work when put together as an armored undersuit? Indeed. Does the Sport Suit deliver the goods as a pioneering armored undersuit? Absolutely!

Armored undersuits may be new-to-you motorcycle gear, but the Forcefield Sport Suit is the reference which you must now include if you’re shopping for motorcycle gear, any motorcycle gear for that matter. Never will there be a bad time to get yourself inside your Forcefield Sport Suit and ride away.

Motorcycle Gear Hub approved and recommended!'

This is the third Forcefield product that has scored an impressive 4.5/5 from Motorcycle Gear Hub in recent weeks.

(August 2019)
Thank you to Motorcycle Gear Hub (www.mcgearhub.com) for this review:
'When it is all said and done, Forcefield as a brand commands trust and innovation. Forcefield’s Pro Shirt X-V 2 illustrates such dedication from the brand to protecting motorcycle riders under all conditions and with no corners cut. If you’re in the market for a multi-purposed, most-protecting, uber-comfortable armored shirt with plenty of airflow to boot, then stop searching and buy a Forcefield Pro Shirt X-V 2. It’s that easy.

'Unparalleled construction quality, among the absolute-best armor that you want protecting your lower body in a motorcycle crash and a figure-hugging snug chassis that never detracts from the joy of riding a motorcycle; that’s the Forcefield Pro Pants X-V 2.


Listen up y’all daily commuters, sportbike bros, touring guys, cruiser dudes, ADV fellas, classic-motorcycle romantics, off-road extremists and scooter ninjas (have I covered all motorcycling public already?), the Forcefield Pro Pants X-V 2 is the one piece of protective equipment which will always be up to the task and ready to go with extreme protection and comfort to be enjoyed of.

Motorcycle News gives our Pro L2K Dynamic and Pro Sub 4K back protectors top marks in their '1000 Mile Test'
(April 2019)
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).'

Forcefield Pro L2K Dynamic back protector wins the 'best comfort' feature in the Motorcycle News '1000 Mile Test'
​(April 2019)
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 knock wearing previous incarnations without injury.​I won't ride without it, on road or track.'​

ADVMoto - Pro Jacket X-V - JanFeb 2019.j
Adventure Motorcycle Magazine (ADVMoto) reviews our Pro Jacket X-V (January/February 2019)
Here is a brilliant review of our Pro Jacket X-V from the January/February issue of Adventure Motorcycle Magazine (ADVMoto) sent in by our USA distributor, Motonation. An excerpt is below.
'Forcefield makes some of the most comfortable armor I’ve ever tested at ADVMoto.
 
The Pro Jacket X-V features high energy-absorbing back and limb armour that is lightweight, flexible and uses heat-activated 3D moulding to conform to your body.
 
The Pro Jacket X-V fits snugly, just as any base layer should. It’s easy to slip on, with thumb holes on the wrists, and so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing it. I’ve also worn it under a jersey during hot-weather dual-sport rides and felt just as comfortable with it on as off (with the added peace of mind).
 
The Pro Jacket X-V’s back armour is the shining feature of this garment. Forcefield packs a lot of R&D into their armor and claims the re-designed back piece is more flexible than competitor options, while optimizing safety. The whole jacket is constructed with breathability in mind, and “armor windows” that provide extra venting.
 
The Pro Jacket X-V has become a regular piece in my kit and, with it, I can wear whatever I want without having to sacrifice safety or comfort.'

'Given that this body armour suit is listed on various motocross webshops, we figure there must be ample protection for the committed mountain biker.
 
The suit features chest, back, shoulder and elbow pads, protecting you to CE2 levels. These are mounted on a stretchy baselayer top with a full-length zip down the side to give access. There are thumb loops at the end of the full-length arms to keep it all in place.
 
The pads are flexible, should dissipate crash impact forces well, and they’re held behind a mesh that Forcefield claims is super strong.'

Slovenian magazine, Motosi, tests and reviews our FreeLite back protector (April 2018)
 
Slovenian magazine, motoSI, have tested and reviewed the Forcefield FreeLite back protector.

'The English name suggests that it is a protection of the back, which at high level of protection is light, adjustable and allows for unimpeded movement. Is it true?

At first glance, the shield is a different form. It is broad in the middle part of the chest, and the bottom is slightly narrower, and then finally narrows down the passage into the lumbar part. The tapered passage allows for more mobility of the shoulder ring and the lighter rotation of the torso.'

Slovenian magazine, motoSI, have tested and reviewed the Forcefield Ex-K Harness

'We have a "full combat jacket" on the test, primarily aimed at the off-road segment, where meetings with hard floors, rocks, or merely rudders are a real possibility.

It is fully adjustable (spacing between elbow pads, shoulders, and central part, shoulder length, waist width). The biggest plus, however, is that you can remove the elbow and shoulder pads, but you remain the protection of the chest and back, which you can also use under the classic bike rider jacket on the road. While moving on a motorcycle does not move anywhere, does not restrict movement, nowhere to squeeze and not rubbing.'

'The main difference is that they have managed to cut down on the thickness of the padding from 17mm, incredibly to only 8mm. This is still while retaining the level of protection with a CE Level 1 rating.

This makes the shorts much lighter than their predecessor and a much lower profile. I have always worn protection shorts and my main issue is that sometimes the padding is noticeable under ski trousers. This is not the case with the Forcefield Slam 1 protection shorts.

They are also very comfortable. So much so that I wouldn’t have even know that I was wearing them until I took a slam. Luckily this didn’t happen too many times, but with icy and variable conditions in Tignes, my board did slide out from underneath me when boarding at speed once, and I was very grateful for the added protection!'

Snow.Guide - Mons Vest 50 - January 2018
Snow.Guide reviews the Forcefield Mons Vest (January 2018)
Below is a brilliant review of our Mons Vest by Snow.Guide. This back protector designed for snow sports scored a huge 9.5 out of 10.

'The first thing I noticed was how lightweight this back protector is. And, because the back protector is incorporated into a vest, it was a snug fit without being uncomfortable. There is an optional waist fastener to make it a more snug fit, but I didn’t need it.

Forcefield have also managed to give the vest a low profile so fits nicely under a jacket and no one would even know that you are wearing a back protector. I was wearing the vest over my base layer and under my shirt, which fitted well. Although, the vest is still categorised as CE level 2 which is ideal for snowsports.

The Forcefield Mons Vest was perfect for snowboarding as it was so light I completely forgot I was wearing one. I also had complete freedom of movement as the back protector didn’t restrict me at all.

The vest has a highly breathable fabric that utilises BeCool technology. This works like your very own climate control system for your skin, removing wet or hot air to regulate your body temperature.'
