Tillett P1 Kart Rib Protector

Tillett P1 Kart Rib Protector

  • Protects against rib injuries
  • Adjustable for optimum fit
  • Does not affect seat sizing

The popular P1 kart rib protector from Tillett had now been revised with a more ergonomic shape to provide even more comfort to the driver, combined with the highest level of protection. The P1 has been designed with input from some of the top drivers in karting and the result is the thinnest protector on the market so as not to affect the required kart seat size.

  • Designed to protect ribs in a crash
  • Front and rear adjustments allow for a more tailored fit
  • Thin profile so kart seat size is unaffected
  • Technical composite panels spread impact load over the whole rib cage to minimise risk of injury
  • Internal anti-shock foam absorbs impacts and vibration
  • Elasticated shoulder harness keeps the protector in the correct position without riding up
  • Wide range of adjustment for size and angle to obtain the perfect fit

Designed and manufactured in the UK, the Tillett P1 kart rib protector works by effectively transferring load points, in a crash, to the whole of the rib cage. This hugely reduces the the risk of rib injuries. The P1 uses a special internal foam which allows the protector to be thinner so as not to disrupt seat sizing and the smooth outer surface has been designed to prevent wear to race suits. The foam is Lycra lined which provides a more comfortable , abrasion free surface for the wearer.  A re-designed velcro strap includes elasticated sections to enable unrestricted breathing whilst retaining the correct tightness of fit.
