Post crash safety gear review - how did it hold up during the crash?

https://youtu.be/p62ll4xGqwQ


1. I want to thank BruceV who is in this group for facilitating the group buy. I know that having the vest prevented major back and nervous trauma.

2. I review all my gear

Sorry about the lighting, and some funky artifacts.

Can you not make just one thread for all your crash items discussion?

I'm sure any air vest will help a lot with neck injuries, however, only newer ones with shoulder protection may help for collarbone related injuries....

Also, from my personal crash experience, external air bags have tendency to rip while sliding on the dirt (rocks etc.), so I went with AlpineStars suit + internal vest now (as opposed to Daines Mugello/Misano suits). A-stars allows two crashes before needing to send in air vest, and suit can still be used with regular back protector (Dainese suit needs to be sent in for every crash).

Hope you learn from my crash and change to airvest inside the suit....

Haha i am trying to keep this forum active! Hahaha

I think i am going internal air vest after this season.

I went helite gp air bc the outer is mainly leather and should be more durable than hit air.

The price jump to the astars isnt that bad.
