The Original Ribtect Chest Protector


The Ribtect Chest Protector is primarily designed to help further protect young drivers and riders in motor sports venues such as, go kart racing and motocross events. Although, feedback from our customers tells us that it is well suited for many other children’s sports related activities such as; ATV, BMX, snowmobile, paint ball, little league and pee wee baseball.

After repeatedly hearing about injuries to young drivers due to impact to the chest area, we decided to go to the drawing boards. We have developed a kid’s chest protector using two layers of vacuum formed polypropylene plastic and sewn together with a Cordura liner. This product has been tested extensively by the SFI at the Delphi facility. With the results of the testing, we are confident that this product will reduce the level of injury in the sport of kart racing, motorcycle racing ATV racing, snowmobiling and other high performance motor sports activities.

This child safety product is a “stand alone” chest protective device – It can be worn by itself or with any brand of rib protector or safety vest. The chest protector will go on first, then the vest, then the driving suit.
