Now in it's sixth generation of improvements, the Rodney Powell Elite Body Protector is the best selling zip closure body protection from the safety experts Rodney Powell. This success is due to the Powell development process, continual innovation as well as repeatedly working closely with many of the world's leading event riders.
The Elite is lighter, more breathable and more flexible than ever before. It has new softer foam in the front panels which make it more wearable from the first time you put it on. Powell has added elastic straps on the inside of the side panels to keep them in line on a variety of body types. The webbing and velco has been adjusted so the straps slide through the velcro making the vest easier to adjust. There is an offset zipper, which makes the vest easier to zip as you no longer have to zip over the the joint in the protective foam. Everyone who has tried the new version of the Elite believes these to be major improvements!

X2ESP vs Flexiback
Rodney Powell now offers a choice of two different back options. Firstly the ‘Flexiback’, for riders who want extreme comfort and flexibility, as it utilizes 4 layers of super-soft Nastec™ gel foam for rapid moulding to the wearers shape. The second is our ‘X2ESP’ [Enhanced Spinal Protection], for people who feel the need for increased spinal protection from their Body Armour. The centre back panel reduces the transmitted energy from sharp impacts to the spinal region to less than half the amount required to pass BETA Level 3. Highly recommended for the serious eventer.
Please note: Unless otherwise noted with customer service, all Elite Body Amour will be supplied with X2ESP Back System.
Rodney Powell is the choice of champions and is the perfect protector for all recreational riders whether taking part in Pony Club or team chasing, endurance riding or a hack out with friends.
