Bluegrass Introduces Two New Upper Body Protectors

As most of us are in lockdown at home it’s a good time to make plans and prepare our list of gear to be ready when we are able to ride again at full-speed. After one year of testing with our athletes in Downhill and Enduro, we are pleased to release two brand-new back protectors:

- BLUEGRASS Armour B&S D3O®: Rider’s bodyguard

- BLUEGRASS Armour Lite: Freedom of movement

They might seem familiar from the past range but they are deeply revised: different fabric, new fit, improved modularity and all hydro compatible. We worked on all of the small details that make a big difference while riding. You can find the features for each one below. 

BLUEGRASS ARMOUR B&S D3O®

The BLUEGRASS Armour B&S D3O® is made for when a total back and side protection is required, with shoulder shells also in place. Constructed from lightweight and stretchable open mesh the BLUEGRASS Armour B&S D3O® is designed to achieve maximum breathability, ventilation, and fast-drying.

D3O® IMPACT PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY 

D3O® offers the thinnest and most advanced protection against impact. D3O® shells combine both safety and ergonomics to let you be confident while descending and comfortable during climbing. The back protector sits in the right position to protect the spine and stays low enough to avoid any push-up effect that might interfere with the jersey collar or a full-face helmet.

UNISEX FIT

Soft body pads allow for a unisex fit and improved breathability, so riders won’t overheat on the climbs.

REMOVABLE SHOULDER PADS

The shoulder protection sits further back in order to be perfectly in place when in riding position. For those who don’t want to use it, they are removable offering the perfect modularity.

THREE POCKETS

Three pockets are at the back to fit the necessities in order to ride light. One of them includes a zip.

SLIM FIT

We work on finding the right balance between flexibility and freedom of movement. Thanks to the new slim-fit construction the vest is perfect to be worn underneath a jersey.

BLUEGRASS ARMOUR LITE

The BLUEGRASS Armour Lite is the perfect choice for riders who prefer lighter gear under their jersey. During long pedaling sections it will feel as if it’s not even there.
