Alpinestars Nucleon series protectors represent the latest innovations from arguably one of the most experienced motorcycle gear companies around. Each component is carefully engineered to work with all Alpinestars equipment, from street jackets to full one-piece leather suits. If you’re a safety-minded rider, it would be hard to find better equipment to protect your body on the road or at the track.


Back protectors are mandatory gear for just about every trackday and racing organization in north America – without it, you’re not going on track. And why would forego a relatively inexpensive piece of equipment that disappears inside your leathers after you’ve put it on? Maybe you had a lesser design, but that’s not the case with Alpinestars Nucleon KR-1 back protector.


Lightweight and built on a fenestrated chassis, the KR-1 is light, as back protectors go, but still breathable and easy to adjust. You can wear it three different ways: all straps installed, only kidney or shoulder straps, or no straps anywhere. This makes it useful for anyone that prefers to wear a back protector out on the road where straps are almost always mandatory.



Of note, each strap can cinched as needed and you can position the kidney belt perfectly, up or down from its stock position, for a bespoke for under your riding gear. CE level 2 armor beneath the mesh exterior easily molds itself to the contours of your body after a few minutes of heat exposure. After that, it almost disappears.


MSRP $169.95

I got this, highly recommended. This back protector molds to your body shape. Feels funny for a while under the racing suit but after that you wont notice it is there.
