This over-the-jersey chest protector has been specifically designed to be integrated with the BNS or function fully on its own. In order to achieve this level of integration, Alpinestars have manufactured the chest plate with a removable section to allow the BNS to sit properly on the chest while maintaining the full protection that a chest protector offers. This was exactly what it did. From the first time I put on the A-10 it fit perfectly.
The A-10 is designed with flexible joints to offer a precise fit to enhance the protection and comfort of the chest protector. With a full back protector included, the A-10 gives the rider complete protection of the back and the anatomically correct shoulder caps the scapulas are protected as well.
A unique feature of the A-10 is the removable padding throughout, which makes keeping the chest protector clean and help you smell minty fresh, instead of like an old gym bag.
This CE-certified chest protector takes one extra step in making sure that the comfort and protection is up to Alpinestars usual quality, they have wrapped all the edges with a rubber coating to eliminate any sharp edges.
