Alpinestars Nucleon KR-R Race Back Protector?

Hey guys,

Does anybody have it? What are your thoughts?

I like the fact that you just snap it inside the jacket/suit and it stays there but I read a couple reviews saying that sometimes it would just detach when the button wears out...?

That's why I am debating between the KR-R and the KR-1 (the one with the shoulder/back straps)

Thanks in advance

I have the KR-R and like it. No problems with it unsnapping from my suit.

Does it affect the process of putting the suit on? or removing it? like, does it make it "stiff" in the back area and you struggle a little more?

Not at all. It's very dense but very pliable. It definitely doesn't look like it would be I know. I normally wear a EU52 jacket but I can get into a EU50 1-pc with this protector on. There is just enough room to put my mobile phone on my chest and zip the suit up. It stays in place, that's how close it is. Haha Wearing an undersuit absolutely helps getting the suit on and off. Not sure I could without it.

Good info man thanks. I am 52 (comfort fit) and 50 (race fit that need a couple rides to break in, and this is the one I bought) and was concerned about the back protector plus the chest ones that slide inside the suit but I guess I will be fine then...
