Forcefield: Doin’ It For Da Kidz

If you take the sprogs out on the back of your bike with you sometimes, or indeed often, you really need to make sure they’re wearing proper bike kit – and that includes a back protector. There are a few on the market for kids now, and Forcefield have just released a new pair, called the Flyer, and the Kadet .

The fully CE certified Forcefield Flyer back protector is constructed using Nitrex – a unique high-tech triangular shock absorbing material combined with dense and lightweight layers of foam which disperse energy upon impact. Designed to be soft, flexible, breathable and comfortable whilst still providing maximum impact protection, it also provides Repeat Performance Technology (RPT) to ensure that even after multiple impacts there is no loss of protective performance.


Fully adjustable shoulder straps and double waist adjustment ensure a correct fit for different body shapes, and it is fully CE approved to CE Approved to: EN1621-2 2003 (Level 1) & EN340:2003.

The Kadet features all the same protection, but it’s shorter in length than the Flyer – to accommodate a smaller sprog. Check out the adult kit at on the Forcefield website. Several of the Fast Bikes team wear this stuff for every ride – so we recommend it highly.
