P1 Defender Rib Protection

click to see more

The P1 Defender karting body protector is made to the new 8870-2018 FIA specification. An 8870-2018 rib protector is now mandatory in all FIA European and World Championship KZ, OKJ and OK Senior events.

This new version is based on our popular P1. It keeps the same comfort and minimal thickness of the standard P1 but adds more strength and coverage to the front and rear, including an integrated chest protector. Therefore, preventing not only rib injuries but also helping against potential steering wheel impacts.

You can legally use your height category, or one size shorter according to the FIA regulation.

Tillett rib protectors will help protect you when driving, although no protector can offer 100% protection and Tillett Racing Seats accepts no liability against personal injury.

P1 Rib Protector (2021 model)

click to see more

The 2022 P1 model affords drivers the highest level of protection. They are the thinnest available on the market, which means that your required kart seat size is unaffected by the addition of the protection. Inside the product, carefully shaped highly technical composite panels spread the load perfectly over the whole ribcage and always retain their shape even on a hot day.

The outer surface graphics layer does not damage expensive race suits, and the internal anti shock foam contributes to an ultra high level of load spreading over the whole ribcage. An inner layer of Lycra provides a comfortable and abrasive free surface for the driver, even when wet with sweat.

The adjustable chest angle means that the P1 can adapt easily to straight and V shaped torsos. At the front the fixing strap has double elasticated sections helping the driver breath, whilst retaining exactly the right tension to protect the ribs. The shoulder harness is elasticated so that it does not pull the protector up when driving and it has a neat and effective adjustment method allowing far greater height adjustment.

The P1 has a comprehensive 7 model size range, to suit the smallest bambino up to the largest adult driver, with a special ladies’ version also available. There is also a choice of colours: blue, black, orange and yellow.

RIBCAGE - Body Support System

Composite support panels that when fitted add extra depth to the sides of the seats.

New 2016 model

Kart seats are available in many different shapes and sizes but they are not depth or height adjustable, which means that the fit of the seat is nearly always a compromise.

Traditionally the only way to achieve this depth was to either use a seat with deepened sides, or to produce a wrap-around seat that curved around the body. The problem with these ideas is that a deeper seat fouls the arms and a wraparound seat could damage the ribs if a driver were thrown from a kart; even worse injury could occur if the seat were to trap the driver in, rather than let them be thrown clear. The Ribcage body support system comprises of two "bolt on” panels that give extra lateral support for the upper body.
