RE Defender HF Impact Vest
An impact vest designed to protect you from some serious impacts… Ride Engine has just dropped the Defender HF and if you’re a foiler (or have a tendency to run into pointy objects in the water), this is worth a look! Available on April 6th.
“Riding a hydrofoil on any type of surf craft in any condition can go sideways quickly, making an impact vest mandatory equipment for most foilers. The Defender HF Impact Vest has been designed to give you gladiator-level protection from a potentially injurious board or foil strike to the torso. The padding on the Defender HF Impact Vest is logically located to allow for unobtrusive paddling and smooth integration under a kite or windsurf harness. Strategically placed internal impact-shell technology throughout the Defender HF Impact Vest shield your upper body from wayward foil points, board noses and other scar-producing dangers so you can ride another day.”
