Offering the lightest under-jersey roost deflection available, the Thor Comp Deflector is the first choice for top racers. The slim, form fitting design allows the deflector to be unobtrusive and allow a full range of movement underneath the jersey. The perforated, moisture wicking chassis helps to keep you cool throughout your ride while the minimalistic collar and sleeveless design enhance the lightweight feeling. Simply stated, the Thor Comp Deflector provides protection without sacrificing weight, mobility and cooling.
I am 6ft tall 180lbs and the small medium fits great. This vest is very low profile and does not restrict any movement. While riding I don't even know its on. It does get very hot with it on while standing still; however, while riding it has a ton of vents to keep you cool. It does rub your nips raw, wear tape or an undershirt.
ROOST. I wear a Leatt neck brace and it fits perfectly with no adjustments with the vest on. I hate wearing chest protectors for the reason of the neck brace and just plain uncomfortable in my opinion. This vest does not stop or take away the feeling of roost but does dampen it. You can still feel roost when a fast 450 is in front of you; however, it does not hurt. You can feel the pressure of roost without the stinging pain. All in all a little padding is better than no padding. If you are looking for complete protection look else wear, but if you are looking for something thin and come home with roost welts, this thing will work great.
I wear a Large shirt comfortably so I ordered the Large/XL and it was super tight. It was not going to work! I don't know how Thor sizes their gear but this was way off. Disappointed I wasn't able to use it. Thankfully the team at RMATVMC made my return super easy
Very light weight and thin. Just mesh on the back. When it is cooler it does hurt my nipples some but an under shirt fixed that issue. Once you start riding you cant even tell you are wearing it. It offers much better protection then I would expect from how thin it is.
I've raced 2 WORCS races and 2 RMX races with this and I like that is has a low profile and the fit is good. It's a little hot to wear in the summer but I only notice it when I'm off the bike. It has good enough ventilation to keep me semi cool while riding.
This is a great roost protector. You can barely tell it's even on while you are riding. That is until you get pelted with some roost. Then you are super glad you have it. So much nicer than the harder chest protectors!
