Ribtect Vest Original | Ribtect 4 Vest | Ribtect Chest Protector | Ribtect Seats | Ribtect Seat Hardware Kit

RibtectRibtect, a pioneer in rib protection for karters, makes arguably the best fitting rib protector for karting. A thin design for optimal seating position, and 12 different sizes to choose from, they are the industry leader. We carry both the original (great for kids and karters who prefer a soft shell design), and the new Ribtect4 for the ultimate in rib protection.

The Ribtect children's chest protector is SFI 20.1 approved, and is mandatory for Junior karters in most series.

The new low profile Ribtect seat hardware kit prevents rib injury and also prevents damage to race suits and rib protectors.

The Ribtect seats eliminates most rib issues in karting with a superior anatomic design. Now available in fiberglass, or carbon fiber. Made in U.S.A.
