Evening All,

Just wanted some pointers on body armour.....

Motorcross body armour troy lee designs ... AoBq8P8HAQ

Is this suitable for downhill riding? Or is it mainly just a stone deflector?

    ....Did anyone have any advice on this? Steer clear or are they something others are using when riding really rough down hill trails. I have tried the fox titan and found the chest plates a bit short and lacking around the ribs.
