P1 Rib Protector (2020 model)

click to see more
click to see more

The current P1 model affords drivers the highest level of rib protection, without reducing the feel from the chassis or disturbing the proportions of the race seat. 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 suede surface 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 adjustable chest angle means that the P1 can adapt to straight and V shaped torsos. A new more secure front fixing strap has double elasticated sections, which helps the driver breath whilst retaining exactly the right tension to protect the ribs. 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: red, blue, black, orange and green and it comes complete with a support harness.

P1 Size Options
Please note when sizing that it can be tempting for a parent to buy a size for a child to grow into. Alternatively, you could mistakenly select a size where the halves touch at the front. This is a mistake. A rib protector must not be too big. If in doubt go for the smaller size and use the width adjustment at the rear under the rear joining panel. Like a crash helmet. If it's too big it will not support correctly. The front Velcro strap will be hard to do up tight if the protector is too big.

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.
