Airowear body protectors are CE marked to EN13158 and annually tested to BETA 2018, giving you peace of mind that our body protectors consistently meet the latest safety standards.”

The Airowear® UltraFlex system not only provides the highest level of safety, but with unrivalled tailoring it presents the most comfortable body protectors on the market today. UltraFlex body protectors are created from a combination of multiple levels of impact-absorbing materials and cutting-edge airflow technology. Impact-absorbing materials provide high-density energy absorption in the case of a fall or kick, reducing the risk and lessening the impact of injury. Airflow technology is incorporated within the impact absorbing foam, to generate movement of air and ultimately create a lighter weight product – enhancing rider comfort.

AirMesh is another example of Airowear® innovation, as explained by the company themselves, “AirMesh is the most highly ventilated BETA 2018 Level 3 body protector in Airowear’s high performance line. With Ultraflex technology foam that moulds closer to the body than ever before. AirMesh is designed to provide the ultimate in comfort and safety.” Also available are AirMesh Shoulder Protectors, “designed to reduce the risk of shoulder and collarbone injuries by up to 80%. AirMesh shoulder protectors are constructed of impact-absorbing foam and are designed to attach to the AirMesh body protector. These lightweight shoulder protectors sit on the ball of the shoulder and move with the body. They are covered in breathable mesh and feature an integrated PVC medical card holder.”
For ultimate safety in the saddle, Airowear® have configurated a market-leading AyrPS system, “The AyrPS unites a detachable, inflatable AirShell gilet tested to Satra M38:Issue 3 February 2015 airvest standard with the lightweight BETA 2018 Level 3 AirMesh body protector. Together they offer the most highly ventilated, double layer protection in Airowear’s line. Both layers have breathable mesh covering for optimization of airflow. With a wide range of gender-specific sizes, the AyrPS fits comfortably and moves with the rider’s body. A lanyard and saddle strap are included with the AyrPS.”

New Airowear Shadow Back Protectors
The Airowear Shadow back protectors were introduced by Airowear to provide an option to those riders who want some protection without the bulk or restriction in movement riders sometimes associate with typical body protectors. Some riders simply do not like to wear body protectors, whether that be for proactical reasons, or sometimes just asthetics. The Shadow back protectors are designed to sit under your show jacket which provides some protection against impacts from a fall, allows full freedom of movement whether jumping or dressage riding and will not spoil your outfit!
The Shadow protectors are certified to motorcycle back protector standard EN1621-2-2014 and come with a machine washable cover.
Remember, the Shadow protectors only protects the back and does not offer protection to ribs or against severe torsion, flexion, or extension or crushing of the body, so they are not suitable for Cross Country.
