BENGIO technology evolves towards the new AB7 RIB PROTECTOR, the first karting rib protector of BENGIO family homologated under FIA standard 8870-2018
AB7 RIB PROTECTOR for karting represents the edge of this evolution through the combination of:
TOTAL BODY SAFETY
The ordinary lateral protection is integrated with new elements for the protection of sternum and back of the drivers to gain an all around safety where the whole torso area finds protection and comfort.
Back protector: Tested for impact energy at 100 joule
Chest protector: Tested for impact energy at 60 joule
Rib protector: Tested for impact energy at 100 joule
FIA standard requires that the maximum peak force recorder at any time during the impact shall not exceed 1kN. AB7 tests obtain largely superior results to the standards required.
DESIGN AND ERGONOMICS
AB7 layout allows a better adherence to any part of the driver’s body. The new shaping of lateral rib protections grants a better fitting in driving position, while the elastic shoulder straps allow an adjustable regulation for any body structure.
