Kart Racing Chest and Rib Protection
Chest protectors typically fit kids 5-12 years old. A chest protector shields the driver's chest area in the event of impact with the steering wheel, steering column or other structure components. We carry the K1 Race Gear child chest protector.
Rib Vests help to absorb and evenly distribute impacts and vibration directed through the chassis of the kart into the racers body. Constant vibration especially in an endurance event can slowly wear down a racer, but a rib vest can help fight off this process and give them the strength needed to stay competitive. We have options from K1 Race Gear and Alpinestars.
