KL Select And USG Release The Best Tested USG 'Flexi' Body Protector For Riders

Kl Select's mandate is to feature 'only the best', and in line with that philosophy, they now offer the Flexi Protective Vest, nicknamed the "bodyguard", one o the newest developments from USG (United Sportsproducts Germany).

Dorothea Carters, Managing Partner at KL Select, remarked that when researching body protectors, "We were apalled that many of the safety vests on the market today are not ASTM approved or tested, and to avoid that costly testing, are marked as 'vests' - which is misleading to the American rider."

As trend setters, we here a KL Select recognize that it is only a matter of time before ASTM-approved Body Protectors are mandatory in certain competitions.

The Flexi vest offers the latest innovations in safety, comfort, and fashion for riders. The vest meets the highest European safety standard - Level 3 EN 13158-2009 and for US ASTM F1937-04, SEI approved. The ASTM Certification is a special production and only available in the USA.

It has been proven and tested that wearing a body protector that is made of flexible parts, instead of one rigid form, gives the rider a wider range of motion and agility. The Flexi vest fits the rider like a second skin and does not hinder the rider or their performance in any way. The "USG Flexi" is ergonomically cut, fits every body shape, and is very light. The cover material is stain resistant and to clean the vest, simply wipe with a damp clean cloth. The hook and loop fasteners at the waist and shoulder allow for a perfect fit every time. A fashionable and functional cover with bow is included. 

"USG Flexi" is available in black for kids M - XL and adults in sizes S - XL. It is light and comfortable to wear, providing much needed protection.

MSRP is $238 (Adult) and $219 (Children).
