Joe Rocket has introduced its new Speedmaster 2.0 Back Protector, and I wore it recently on a sport bike ride through the mountains. It’s hard to say how well it protects because, fortunately, I didn’t crash. It is, however, built like the many I’ve tried and seen – and that’s a good thing.

The Joe Rocket Speedmaster 2.0 Back Protector is built to the CE Level 2 standard, and provides comfortable for all-day track or street riding. I found that after a few minutes I forgot I was wearing this device and enjoyed full mobility during the day with an added sense of extra security.

The Speedmaster 2.0, according to Joe Rocket, “replaces rigid plastic with a combination of 3D sculpted and articulated high density foam armor, impact and shock absorbing ventilated foam backing, slim sculpture design and ample adjustability; making this one of the most comfortable and non-restrictive back protectors available today.” I agree on all counts.

The elastic shoulder straps are fully adjustable with pivoting snap-connectors near the shoulders for comfort and ease of use. The wide waist strap is doubly adjustable with a main hook and loop wraparound closure and a second set of adjusters on each side to fine tune the size or gather excess for slimmer riders. This length is generous and even those riders with more substance are sure to fit.

I don’t like thinking about crashing, but a back protector provides an extra sense of security. The features, comfort, quality and looks of the Speedmaster 2.0 make it an easy choice.

The Joe Rocket Speedmaster 2.0 is available in Medium (19.7 inches) and Large (21.9 inches); prices (MSRP) range from $74.99 – $79.99. For additional information, visit Joe Rocket.
