Description

Have you lost your shoulder armor from your Airtex or Cool-Air Shirt? Has your existing armor become damaged? This pair of shoulder armor pieces is the exact same thing that originally came with your shirt, making it easy to continue riding with Bohn’s proven protection!

Maybe you are looking to replace the useless foam that comes with many suits and jackets? Upgrade your suit to Bohn Armor! Many suit manufacturers simply use comfort foam to pad out shoulders, etc. After all, their business is to sell you a nice suit, not armor!

Our armor will usually fit in the pockets already in your suit, or you can trim it if required.

Riders especially like the comfort and durability of our armor sections since they fit ‘into’ the shape of your body.

Armor is sold in pairs so you only need to order one set per shirt!!

Armor Care

We recommend removing the armor from your Bohn gear from time to time to clean it as detergent residue, salt (including body salt) and moisture can stick to it and negatively affect the armor.

Armor pieces should NOT be placed in the washing machine or dryer, but may be wiped clean with a damp cloth if they become soiled.  They will not absorb liquid so they can be immediately dried with a towel and reinserted.

*** Also note: Salt air and sweat left on garments can break down the Lycra® in our garments so it is imperative that the fabric portion be washed regularly and not stored for long periods of time with salt or sweat on them. 

Replacing Your Armor

After a Crash:
Bohn Armor has long lasting crash construction and is meant for repeat use.

If you go down, simply inspect for visible damage. If the damage is significant then you will need to replace the armor piece(s), if it is simply scratched, you do not have to replace it, simply sand off any hard or sharp edges and continue to use. 

Over Time:
We definitely recommend replacing our limb armor after about 5 years.

Reason #1: The first reason is that most armor is made of polymer (plastics) and over time, plastics will wear out naturally as the inherent moisture evaporates from within the plastic/pad.

Reason #2: The second reason to replace is that armor technology improves greatly every couple of years. You should find the new set you purchased is much further ahead in quality, fit, feel and technology from what you had before.
