Customer Reviews for Alpinestars Nucleon KR-2I Back Insert - Black
Lovely to wear!
A great bit of kit that you don't notice when wearing the jacket. Fits into the appropriate pocket in the jacket no trouble. Brilliant value as well.Read more
Product functions perfectly, very comfortable in jacket pouch and it moulds to your body very quickly and easily whilst riding! Definitely recommend!Read more
Just what I needed
I needed a back protector for an Alpinestars jacket I bought last year - it's like a wind shell type jacket with a hood. The small fits perfectly into the jackets mesh holder, and moulds to your back so not uncomfortable, in fact hardly notice it's there. Amazing service as usual from SBSRead more
Good value and an essential piece of protection for any Alpinestars jacket. Fits in the pocket and is almost unnoticed especially once worn for a short whileRead more
Great extra protection
Excellent quality back protector. The material softens up with bodyheat and is very comfortable. I added mine to an Alpinestars Hoodie for some extra protection.Read more
Extra confidence than stock
I've moved from an RST jacket with an 'aero' hump that had a back protector in it which offered full back protection. Switching to an Astars jacket I also wanted the back protection to not feel exposed, however the back protector sits much higher up leaving a portion of the lower back exposed. I don't think it would be much of an issue in a crash however I do feel more exposed than on my old jacket. For full protection a dedicated back protector is needed.Read more
