Falling off the berm on the first corner is never a good thing, road rash sucks and we all know it! In the past, it has been difficult to find a slim fitting good feeling BMX specific body armour. Thankfully the guys over at S1 protection (not the helmet brand) have answered the call!
The S1 Defense Epic 1.0 High Impact Jacket has been refined and improved by the BMX Former World Champion Niek Kimmann.
With the specially formed shoulder pads and thin plastic chest inlay plate, this is the most high-end Jacket in the S1 protection range.
As comfortable as it is secure! The S1 Jacket combines a light, stretchy, and very soft main fabric in contact with the skin. S1 has developed a dense protective foam padding that ensures effective shock absorption. These are placed on the most sensitive areas that are exposed to falling: the back, shoulders, elbows, and chest.
