Nukeproof provides a body armour Jacket perfect for any Mountain Biker

Developed in conjunction with the ChainReactionCycles.com/Nukeproof downhill and 4X team our Leatt Brace-compatible jacket has been designed to perform at the highest level of gravity competition. 

We’ve used SaS-Tec protection foam on all impact areas for maximum energy absorption and impact protection, combined with a removable back protector plate. The SaS-Tec foam adapts ergonomically to your body, absorbs 50% more impact energy and is 60% lighter than traditional hard-shell protectors.

The breathable, wicking base layer has sublimated Nuke Proof graphics and has vented areas to keep you cool when the going gets rough. 

Adjustable Velcro strap closures and an ergonomic design makes this one of the most comfortable jackets on the market.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Свойства данного товара Достоинства: Он подойдет тем кто занимается видами спорта предполагающими падения на мягкие покрытия (снег, земля). Соответственно, я бы рекомендовал данную защиту для сноуборда, дёрта и т.п. И конечно вырезы по Leatt - это круто. Жаль остальные производители их не делают. Недостатки: как защиту для ДХ не рекомендую категорически - ДХ предполагает жесткие падения и удары об камни и деревья. Вот тут этот "пиджак" вообще не поможет: спина гнется во все стороны; локти, плечи и грудь пробиваются острой частью молотка (при ударе небольшой силы) на раз. Скажу честно - Бог миловал, еще в нем не падал нигде! Но когда оказался в горах сразу же захотел его поменять на пластик. 11 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great with the leatt neck brace I have used this twice since new on 2 uplift days and am very happy with it. The reason i bought this one was for its compatibility with the leatt neck brace. The leatt body armour was well above my budget. its a very comfortable suit and does not feel too overly bulky or tight. The sleeve is starting to tear already so that's why i only gave 4 stars 12 November 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good protection and not too hot Bought this after breaking two ribs this summer on cross country trails. Have used it a couple of times and already tested it, good level of protection to elbows, shoulder, back and chest (though lower ribs are exposed). It gets a bit hot when climbing, but this is to be expected in 30 degree heat, what is good though is that you can undo the side velcro fasteners on the chest protector and flip it over your head so it rests on your back when climbing, you can then unzip the front of the jacket and get a decent airflow. I do this on climbs and then put it all back in place for the descents/cross country. It seems well made and pretty tough, bit expensive but I am fed up with the pain of broken bones! The jacket also wicks away sweat pretty effectively 27 August 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sizing no problem! I don´t agree with those who has adressed an sizing issue. I am a medium most of the time (wasit 33-34) and chest is 108 mm in circumference. 180 cm tall. Based on the sizing guide and the reviews here I went for an XL. Well gues what - its to big! Around the cheest and the back it´s ok. Not tight by any means. But the choulder and elbow pads don´t fit properly. I.e they end up to low on their respective part of the body and wont protect much in a crash. Otherwise good and nice. Sorry I have to send it back. Stick to your sizing and buy a great armour jacket! The shoulder and elbow pads are only certified to the lower spec in CE standard, and the chest pad is - as far as I can see not certified at al. 09 May 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor Build Just tried this on in an XL and I have a slim build but really struggled to get it on and then the seam that joins the hand braces to the cuff split on both sides and my forearms are the exact opposite to Pop-Eyes!! Also the shoulder and elbow pads are flimsy. 661 suits are better, but not Leatt compatible! 28 May 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bought this suit to do an uplift day. Im a 34" waist and have broad shoulders I went for the XL and it fit very well. After adjusting all the straps I found it to be very comfortable with nice movement. However on my third run down the hill I crashed at high speed(went over the bars) My shoulder and head hit the floor the stitching on the shoulder pad split away from the material and the pad moved away on impact causing my bare shoulder to hit the gravel and causing me a deep graze along my shoulder. I have used cheaper brands of pressure suit before and never had this issue so I was extremely disappointed that it happened to this suit. Rib protection is also just padding with no hard shell so expect to get bruised ribs if you hit anything in that area. 29 April 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Мне понравилась...за исключением липучек оставляющих затяжки на всём. Ношу "M" - подошла "M" , а нижний край на самом деле чуть туговат. 15 February 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Just had to send this body armour back, I'm 40" chest and 5'10" tall. I normally fit into medium / large clothing so opted for the large to be on the safe side. It was TINY!!!!!!!!!! Couldn't fasten the zip more than 3" and the hem at the bottom is real tight. In comparison to other manufacturers I would say this was small / medium sizing. The product itself looks fine but I'm now waiting for the XL. 06 January 2012

Answer: 
Yes; the Critical armour is compatible with the Leatt Neck Brace systems, which use the same universal base design as the Alpinestars, so the BNS should be fine.

Machine Wash?

Hello,

Can this suit be taken apart to be machine washed or is there a way to easily clean this after riding? I ride with suits and they often get very sweaty and dirty.

Also, with a leatt neck brace and jersey with this suit would the brace need to go over the jersey and suit or under them? Just curious as it states its leatt compatible.

thanks -

Answer: 
No, the Nukeproof Critical Armour is not suitable for Machine Wash as it is marked as Hand Wash only.

In Relation to the Leatt Brace, the Jackets Backplate would have a removable insert at the top so that you will be able to remove and comfortably wear your Neck Brace.
