I like the idea behind these protectors. For those that have them, can you offer pros and cons ?

Are they heavy?
Breathability?
Has anyone taken a huge hit / get off wirh the RXR bullet or new rxr pro 2.0? were there noticeable marks on the protector yet you were good ? Or vice versa...
Has anyone wore both the bullet and pro2.0’s? Which do you like best ?

I’m currently running a fox chest protector but, it’s just plastic. Air bladder dispersement I think will offer better protection probably at the cost of some weight and breathability ?

They are very comfortable, as long as they over the jersey. Under the jersey, not so much due to their size.

Protection is top notch, but (thankfully) I’ve never had a big crash on them.

They do block the wind, so they feel a bit wormer, but not a big difference for me.

I feel like they are the most protective, but also feel a bit bulkier.

I've wondered this too. I've been hesitant to buy one as it looks like it would be really hot, and I don't know if it would be a big step up in protection from the Alpinestars A-10 that I currently use. I think the A-10 is excellent - fairly light and breathable with very good protection.

I’ve been wearing their chest protectors for the last dozen years or so. I’m a believer in the stuff they make.

I got the new Pro version this year and I find it to be pretty comfortable. It’s vented better than the previous versions they’ve had, much thinner, and more comfortable than earlier products they’ve made. Last weekend it was close to 95 degrees and extremely humid and I wasn’t bothered by it being “too hot”.

Do you wear the new model under the jersey?

Ive been wearing the nicer fly chest protector over the jersey the last 6 months or so and just cannot get comfortable with it, it feels like when I Bmx with a backpack on. Last week both buckles broke so I just rode without it and my form and technique were so much better

I haven’t ridden with it on under the jersey yet. If I ride this weekend, I’ll do that and report back.

I have a M/L that I might be getting rid of soon. I used it less than 10x and no crashes, still have the box it came in

I've been using the RXR bullet for the past 2.5 years. Rode a whole Florida summer wearing it under the jersey. Feels like you get more air around your body with it under. If I get too warm I just pour water inside.
Best protection I've ever worn and I have comfortably crashed with it a fair few times.

I have one, Wear it over the jersey it has some solid weight. Thankfully i have not had to test the dirt with it yet.. it feels very very protective, and is really comfortable.

I've been using the Bullet for a couple of years now, quite happy with it. No big crashes, and while it's hotter than no protector, that's not an option for me. Once underway I don't even notice it's on.

Who sells these in the US? Can't find it anywhere except direct from RXR.

Whatever the first gen is, that’s the one I have.

I’m very used to it but it definitely can be hot, but I won’t ride without it, ever.

It’s taken direct impacts that I’m sure would have broken bones or done internal damage.
