      Ribtect + Ribtect Seat.  Best protection I’ve found for preventing rib injuries for me.

      I injured my ribs last year and I picked up a new freeM vest which has been great the few times I’ve used it so far.

      Also I would recommend taking a look at some additional padding if you’re having rib issues. That’s made a huge difference for me.

        Which shocktech gel do you use, what thickness? Can you glue that stuff to a seat?

        Thanks,

      I don’t like that the ribtect seat holds you in if the kart flips over your stuck. Im leaning towards the freem rib protector. What about the bumber?

      Ribtech and deepseat don’t hold you in for a flip. It depends on how you flip, you can stay in the seat even with a tillet.

      The best thing is to have a seat that conforms to your side. For me the typical euro seats put pressure in one small spot so, it doesn’t matter what kind of rib belt you use it’s gonna get through. The Ribtect seat/belt system is pretty much it. If there’s anything better it’s not going to be that much better but you’ve got to get the right size.
