Atlas Defender Protector
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. Finally, Atlas is proud to introduce the Defender – The first modern solution to body protection made to integrate seamlessly with your Atlas Brace.
With inspiration from high end running shoes, Atlas is introducing a big step forward in comfort, durability, and water resistance. The Defender 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.
Out with the old. In with the new.
Using a high performance padding solution also meant using a high performance assembly technique. Gone are the days of using dozens of cheap, low quality rivets to hold everything together. By bonding the padding to the plastic shell we create a permanent singular assembly with no gaps, loose parts, fasteners, added weight, or protruding plastic features facing the body.
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.
Integration. And security.
With 5 possible configurations, and the ability be worn under or over a jersey, the Defender is the perfect addition to your Atlas Brace. Atlas even provides built in simple elastic straps to hold your brace in place.
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.
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.
Unique waist straps have built in magnets to help keep the straps in place during use.
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.
