Choosing a Model - The differences between the ProVent 3.0 and the RS2010 Body Protectors

by Jade Turner |


What Is the difference between the Racesafe ProVent 3.0 and the Racesafe RS2010 Body Protectors?

 

This has got to be our most frequently asked question, by a country kilometre! We get it, we make two fantastic body protectors (well actually three, but the 3rd one is for racing) which are the Racesafe ProVent 3.0 and the Racesafe RS2010, and it might seem difficult at first to understand the differences between the two.

To demystify this common question, we have created this handy guide to help you choose the body protector that’s right for you.

Key Differences

Just in case the table above is a lot to take in, we have also pulled out the main points of difference:

  • Breathability: The ProVent 3.0 features perforated foam blocks and mesh fabric outer, making it more breathable
  • Weight: because of the above, the ProVent 3.0 is also lighter in weight that the RS2010.
  • Customisation: The RS2010 comes in Navy or Black, or can be completely custom designed in over 20 difference colours. The ProVent 3.0 on the other hand, only comes in Black, but you can add a body protector cover over the top in either standard or custom designs. 

 

Summary

In summary, both body protectors meet all the necessary safety standards for all disciplines and will offer riders unrivalled comfort, safety and style.

The ProVent 3.0 is now our most popular body protector, mainly due to is breathable, lightweight construction. The RS2010 however is the option of choice if you want the body protector itself in your own custom colours.
