Some days, just looking down from the lift at the trails you're about to ride is enough to make you glad you put all of your body armor on. But other days, the decision can be much less clear. Throw 7 Protection's Flex Body Protector into your big day rotation and you'll have the option to adapt your armor to fit whatever's in store for any given ride. With fixed chest padding, the Flex will always provide you with some cushion during unexpected spills, but it also comes with removable spine and shoulder protection for the days you know you'll be doing things you might not get away with cleanly. The padding hardens upon impact and was designed to meet CE mountain bike safety standards. Conveniently, the pocket used to accommodate the spine protection also fits a two-liter hydration bladder, so you can skip the backpack on the days you hit the trails for an endurance ride. As a finishing touch, 7 Protection integrated four rear pockets and a center back pocket into the Flex to give you more than enough room to stash bonk-preventing grub and any other ride essentials.
