Customer Reviews for Alpinestars Nucleon KR-2I Back Insert - Black
Comfortable and Sturdy
Fitted it into an Alpinestars T-Missile Drystar jacket. Comfortable and feels very secure. Great bit of kit. Highly recommend.Read more
Upgrade your gear!
I hope it doesn't get tested, it feels good and fits perfectly on my Alpinestars Gunner jacket.Read more
Bought the back protector to go in my Alpinestars 3L jacket as the one supplied is little more than a thin piece of foam. The back protector fits the jacket perfectly (2xl jacket with the L protector). It makes you the jacket stiffer when you pick it up but once you put the jacket on you would never know it was on. Reassuring to have level 2 protection. Hope to never need to test it out.Read more
Fitted this to a Leonis Drystar jacket. It is very pliable, moulds easily to your back and is comfortable to wear. Purchased a size Large, which fits my XL jacket perfectly. Recommended.Read more
My view is you can't skimp on safety features great quality and fit and feel, hope this helpsRead more
Worth the money
Fits my alpinestars sektor tech jacket perfectly, with luck I'll never have to find out whether or not it provides the level of protection required however it's always better to have and not need than need and not have and at £35 it's priced far cheaper than I'd be willing to pay to avoid a spinal injury. Just buy it .Read more
Solid piece of mind.
Light, well ventilated with the ability to mould to your back. Easy to install in my Alpinestars atem jacket. An essential purchase. Medium size for medium jacket. Cheapest price I found. Excellent delivery and communication.Read more
Lightweight flexible but sturdy
Bought this with an Alpinestar Leonis Drystar jacket. Very pleased, it's very light, comfy and flexible but reassuringly thick so I think it will offer good protection. You don't notice it when wearing jacket.Read more
Cracking value for money
Surprisingly good quality for the money. Fits perfectly into my Motegi jacket.Read more
Almost can't feel it
Although this is a rigid back projecter, you almost can't feel it once in the jacket. Looks like it will give a lot of protection to the back. All in all, a nice bit of kitRead more
