K1 Carbon Fiber Rib Vest


K1 Carbon Fiber Rib Vest


At K1 Race Gear, we highly recommend the use of a rib vest if you compete in outdoor karting or endurance events, as a rib protector can make a huge difference in your overall comfort. If you are interested in getting a rib vest, our carbon fiber rib protector provides superb defense against injury and fatigue, and is highly durable thanks to its construction. A rib vest helps absorb and evenly distribute impacts and vibration directed through the chassis into your body, helping reduce the chance of injury and allowing you to focus on the task of driving, rather than discomfort or exhaustion. The constant vibration of an endurance event can slowly wear down your body, but a rib vest can help fight off this process and give you the strength you need to stay competitive. If you are in need of a rib protector, we highly recommend our carbon fiber rib vest! Our kart vest is a high-quality rib protector that incorporates a host of features to improve the user's comfort and provide additional safety, including:

  • Protective panels formed from carbon fiber that are designed to flex around the driver and absorb and distribute shock
  • A lightweight, thin overall design to increase comfort and usability
  • Custom tailored using polypropylene modules
  • Cordura?̴̥Ìâ fabric vest that features adjustable chest and shoulder straps
  • Stronger reinforced buckles
  • Better shock-absorbing foam

We strive to provide our customers with the highest-quality kart gear on the market at K1 Race Gear including racing suits, racing shoes, driving gloves and accessories and our carbon fiber kart vest is designed and built to meet this standard. We are confident that you will not be disappointed in our carbon fiber rib vest! Feel free to place this item in your shopping cart for quick and convenient checkout, and if you have additional questions regarding our carbon fiber kart vest, please don't hesitate to contact us we would be happy to help!
