The first advancement in 4 decades.
Traditional chest protectors have been the same for over 40 years - A combination of injection molded plastic, laminated absorbent foam, and a fastening system holding them together. We are proud to introduce the Defender Jr - The first modern solution to roost protection made to integrate seamlessly with your Atlas Brace.
With inspiration from high end running shoes, we are introducing a big step forward in comfort, durability, and water resistance. The Defender Jr padding is extremely light weight, incredibly tough and tear resistant, and is completely waterproof. Finally, a chest protector you can wash knowing it will not put on water weight, or be wet for your next ride.
The plastic outer shell is extended around the side of the body, met with a layer of padding coming from the back. Together, a full side wrap is created to hug the body, and offer 360 degree coverage.
Made to Size.
Each Atlas Defender Jr is sized accordingly, scaled down from our adult Defender. Made for youth, made for Atlas integration, and made to wear under or over your jersey.
Integration. And security.
With multiple configurations, and the ability be worn under or over a jersey, the Defender Jr is the perfect addition to your Atlas Brace. We even provide built in simple elastic straps to hold your brace in place.
Modular. Times 5.
Configure your Defender in a way that suits you. Choose an over the jersey option:
Full Defender - Neck Brace - Over the jersey
Defender with PVC upper back - neck brace - over the jersey
Full Defender - No neck brace - Over the jersey
Or choose one of the following under the jersey options:
Defender with PVC upper back - neck brace - Under the jersey
Full Defender - No neck brace - Under the jersey
Maximum air circulation.
By creating a seamless bond between the outer shell and padding, air doesn't get trapped in hidden gaps that exist with traditional protectors. A total of 52 intake and exhaust vents help promote maximum air flow to the body, and molded air channels in the padding help keep it circulating right where you want it.
Adjustment made easy.
Adjust your Defender on the fly by simply sliding the waist strap adjuster till you reach the desired fit. Slide it forward to tighten, and backwards to loosen.
Unique waist straps have built in magnets to help keep the straps in place during use.
Each Atlas Defender comes with a free GoPro camera chest mount. Bolt this optional mount directly to your Defender along with your own GoPro camera to get a perfect view of your riding, racing, or other extreme sports activity.
*Camera not included.
Innovation for the modern era.
40 years is too long to go without innovation. We decided to break tradition and create the first modern chest protector - and we are proud to call it the Defender. It not only helps defend your body, but also what we stand for. We love innovating better ways to solve problems, and the unique construction of the Defender is a prime example. This is a new era. And we are just getting started.
Under. Or Over.
The Defender can be worn under or over a jersey. Configure it in a way that suits your needs.
Changing configurations is made easy, thanks to our unique single tool removal. Custom CNC machined aluminum fasteners are recessed into the shell on one side, allowing for easier removal with a single flathead screw driver, coin, or any other similar object.
Designing the first modern era chest protector meant making the inside just as beautifully crafted as the outside. Each surface of the shell and padding have a strategically chosen surface finish and texture to not only improve the looks and style, but also prolong the durability and the life of the product.
Make it your own.
Simplistic design not only enhances features and function, it also lends itself to customization. Custom graphics are readily available, making it easy to add your name, number, and personal style.
