Body Protector

Size & Fitting Guide

Before we get started

Where possible, we recommend you visit one of our approved stockists for a fitting. You can find your nearest with our stockist finder or contact us for help. If you're unable to visit a stockist or would like to know your recommended size, this guide will walk you through each step.

How to measure for your body protector

The video guide above will walk you through how to take the 3 measurements needed to recommend a Racesafe body protector size. A written guide is included below.

Chest

Measure your chest around the widest part, just under your armpits, across the nipple line. With the tape tight, breathe in and out, and take the average of the two measurements.

Tips

- You will ideally need a soft tape measure (or a string and a ruler), a belt and your saddle.

- Make sure you're wearing a single light layer when measuring.

- Make sure to pull the measuring tape taut to replicate the snug fit of the body protector.

Selecting a body protector size

Choose a body protector model from the list. Using the measurements taken, enter them into the size recommender or check the size chart.
