PRO GuIDe New Abrasion Resistant (AR) knee protector British protector specialist Forcefield Body Armour is launching a new Abrasion Resistant (AR) knee protector. Easy to fit, with a unique wrap-around fixing, it can be worn next to the skin or over jeans - “it is super comfortable, which makes it ideal for commuter use, off-road and touring”. As with other Forcefield armoured products, the wearer can choose whether it’s fitted with Isolator CE1 or CE2 limb armour, which gives greater flexibility in terms of price and armour characteristics. For example, a rider who rides predominantly off- road in hot conditions may choose the CE1 limb armour as it is thinner and lighter and offers greater breathability; for road or race, touring, commuting or extreme enduro, the CE2 is the preferred option. The abrasion resistant points are designed-in where they are needed most. It is manufactured from high tensile strength, abrasion resistant fabric with internal coating specifically located on the knee face and on the outer side of the knee.
