Bike Rumor 2018 Editor’s Choice: Leatt Body Protector 3DF AirFit
The Leatt 3DF AirFit Body Protector was selected as one of Bike Rumor’s ‘2018 Editor’s Choice’ Items. They do this annually by compiling a list of their favorite tried and tested products out there.
“Another year has absolutely blown by, and we’re already starting to plan for 2019. But before we pop the champagne and start making ride plans in the new year, it’s time to look back on some of the best gear from 2018. As usual, there was no shortage of incredible products making this selection process quite difficult. Everything below is something that I have actually used, but more importantly would continue to use. If you’re looking for the best, our Editor’s Choice lists are a great place to start,” they said.
EDITOR’S CHOICE: “I don’t ride DH and park as much as I used to, which makes me even more inclined to wear protection when I do. During the Polygon XQUARONE launch in Scotland I got to try out the Leatt Body Protector 3DF Airfit upper body suit, and I’m glad I did. I didn’t technically need it since I didn’t crash, but if I did, I feel it would have saved me from some big impacts. Most importantly, the suit is body huggingly comfortable with excellent ventilation. So even on a hot Scottish summer day (it happens occasionally), you’re not going to sweat to death. Mostly, the suit just provides a calming sense of protection in a perfectly comfortable way that also doesn’t look like you have a set of hockey pads under your jersey,” they said about the protector.
