This will include
• Freedom of movement: especially ergonomic plastic, no limitation of movement.
• Performance: very little waste of energy, extremely light, made out of innovative materials.
• Safety: protection for all exposed parts of the body.
These are available with or without body belts. These offer support to the vulnerable back area. Modern back supports are made from breathable material whilst still offering great support and protection on the race track.
