Tillett Rib Protectors -- P1
The best rib protection on the market for kart racing.

RibtectThe P1 Rib Protector by Tillett is one of the best engineered rib protectors available. Recently at the CIK FIA Karting World Championships the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place driver were all using the Tillett P1 rib protector! It's also used by many of the top drivers in the sport including F1 stars Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, and Kimi Raaikonen. CIK-FIA OK and KZ World Champions like Pedro Hiltbrand, Dexter Patterson and Paul De Conto trust the P1 because it has the technology to keep their ribs safe with today's modern karts and soft tires on "rubbered up" tracks placing extreme G-forces on their rib cages.

The P1 effectively spreads the extreme point loads transmitted to the ribs from the side and edges of the seat.

More information directly from Tillett
The P1. The P1 Rib protector is clearly the best in the market and is used to win the majority of major races. It affords drivers the highest level of rib protection available without reducing the feel from the chassis. The P1 has highly technical panels which spread the load perfectly over the whole ribcage and always retain their shape even on a hot day. They are the thinnest rib protector available which means that the correct fit in your kart seat is unaffected by the addition of the protection.

The smooth Dinamica suede outer surface does not damage expensive race suits and the soft inner skin of special load spreading foam contributes to an ultra high level of shock performance. The adjustable rear angle means that the P1 can adapt to straight and V shaped torsos. The Velcro strap has an elasticated section which helps the driver breath whilst retaining the correct tension. The P1 has a comprehensive 6 model size range, to suit the smallest bambino up to the largest adult driver, with a special ladies’ version also available. There is a choice of three colors, red, blue and gray (gray is no longer available - it is being replaced with black in 2020). It comes complete with a support harness.

***Color Notice: The gray color has been discontinued. It is currently only available in red or blue. Black will be available sometime in 2020.***
