Dainese Balios Level 3 Body Protector

Dainese are world leaders in body protection in the Moto Sport (sponsoring Valentino Rossi), they have now developed a range of products for the equestrian market. Their innovative body protector is characterised by a hexagonal construction which guarantees maximum comfort and manoeuvrability yet maintains excellent protection and coverage. Crash Absorb material is used to make the Dainese Body Protector range.

It is a special water-repellent viscoelastic nitrile rubber, perforated especially for breathability and capable of guaranteeing protection and comfort. The hexagonal design of the segments allows them to have a vast range of movement on the 6 sides of each hexagon with allowing full mobility for the rider.

The layers of Crash Absorb are chemically welded to the outer stretchy layer of the Balios 3 and as a result elasticity is built into the whole body protector – this allows for maximum movement of the rider. The Balios 3 allows you to use your full range of movement – this means you have the flexibility to perform to your best, safe in the knowledge that you are protected to the highest level.

This body protector is BETA approved and has the BETA badge sewn in on the front.

    I needed a new body protector for eventing, and visited Forelock & Load as they had several types to choose from. Without a doubt this is the most comfyist, awesome body protector I have ever worn! It flexes with you as you move rather than being rigid, and its so much cooler than a fixed body protector. The only downside is that it isn’t adjustable, so it either fits you or it doesn’t. Lucky for me it fits my body shape!! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
