Spidi Defender back testing Back & Chest generation 2: The Slim-Fast effective

Spidi Defender


To appeal, OEMs competing to offer technical back even more discreet, still thinner without diminishing their performance … this is the promise of the new Defender Back & Evo. We tested the second generation proposed by Spidi .

The backbone is increasingly democratized and even starts to become a device that has its own place in the closet biker lambda and that’s good …

Extending his office as his predecessor to the thorax, the second vintage of Italian was allowed to undergo treatment Slim-Fast in the state of the art to try to be forgotten in a jacket or under a Combard .

So promise kept?

Side gives its measurements is rather impressive. Posting a ridiculously low weight of 708 grams (checked with the thoracic part and 504 grams for the backbone only) for a measured thickness of 2.4 cm, the Defender B & C’s second name is intended protective.

Pleasant, light, fine, well-ventilated, the new Defender Back & Evo knows how to be a valuable ally on road and track.
