Alpinestars Nucleon KR-3 Back Protector Review and Sizing Info from STG

  • Alpinestars Nucleon KR-3 Back Protector Sizing I wear a size Large in the Alpinestars Nucleon KR-3 Back Protector at 5' 11" 200lbs with a 32-33 in waist with a size 56 Euro / 46 US suit. It is comfortable under the suit, almost invisible really. - Brian Van
  • Brian Van's 2 Cents WOW is where I am going to start. I have worn a lot of different back protectors over the years now and this one has moved to the top of my list. The base material Alpinestars uses for the Nucleon KR-3 Back Protector softens as it warms which allows it to move with you so well you forget it is there. The waist belt is adjustable to raise or lower the protector on your body, the straps are adjustable and removable (I prefer no straps so I take them off) which allows you to dial the fit in. Shields in the kidney/rib area (removable and adjustable) are included and slide over the wasit belt. At first I was sure that I would be taking these off, that all changed once I rode with them in and never felt they were there. This is best back protector I have used thus far and would recommend this to any track rider for sure. - Brian Van
