TINA COOK - European Champion

"The horse knows how I'm feeling, if I'm hot, tense or uncomfortable then so is the horse. Likewise if I'm cool, confident and relaxed. Powell sign, seal and deliver every time."

The 2012 version of our most popular body protector the 'Elite' Series 7 MK2 comes with a choice of two different back options. Choose from the 'Flexi-Back' - for riders who want extreme comfort and flexibility, it utilises 4 layers of super-soft Nastec gel foam for rapid moulding to the wearers shape. Or choose the 'X2ESP' [Enhanced Spinal Protection] which is available on both the 'Elite' or 'Pro' models, for people who feel the need for increased spinal protection from their Body Protector. With X2ESP, the centre back panel reduces the transmitted energy from sharp impacts to the spinal region to less than half the amount required to pass BETA level 3.
