Customer Reviews for Alpinestars Nucleon KR-2I Back Insert - Black
Lightweight, breathable, comfy and reassuring it's there should the worse happen. Fitted straight into my Alpinestars Brera jacket. A must have. Adding to that great price and speedy delivery, both things Sportsbikeshop provide time and time again. 5 stars for both product and supplier.Read more
I didn't want to spend the money on the Dainese one, I got this one and it fit in my jacket. 1 week later I had a crash and the back protector sure did help with keeping me safe.Read more
Top quality back protector!
Thin & light with enough flexibility to mould nicely to your back when riding. Purchased the chest protectors too which all fit perfectly in my Alpinestars Jaws leather jacket. Great product.Read more
I've been a naughty boy
Rumour has it that the Alpinestars Nucleon KR2i back protector insert also fits nicely into the jackets of their arch rivals Dainese! Have purchased one to try in my Dainese Razon jacket and can confirm the rumours are true. It fits great! The KR2i is lightweight, very flexible, amazingly thin (for a Level 2 protector) and very comfortable to wear. Its also excellent value for money. So whether you are an Alpinestars or Dainese wearer this back protector cones highly recommended. I wonder if Sportsbikeshop will print this? :-)Read more
Fits well in my Alpinestars jacket.Read more
Hope I'll never need to test it
Fits well. Much better than the foam padding you get as standard on Astars stuff ...Read more
Fast delivery of a quality product
Fast delivery as usual, the back protector is light and fits perfectly in my leathers. It's designed to contour to your back and is much more comfortable and less bulky than the (temporary) RST, I fitted.Read more
Nice but should be cheaper
Nice piece of kit, comfortable to wear & fits nicely into my textile jacket but I don't see why it's not cheaper.Read more
Very good product
Product came brand new exactly as described. Very good bit of kit, hopefully when the time comes it'll prove it's worth. Very fast shipping time and excellent communication from sender.Read more
Good product, fast delivery
