Real protection for hypothetical crashes.
You always plan to stay rubber-side down, but say a squirrel ran across the trail, you swerved to avoid it because you love animals, and that swerve sent you tumbling down a steep hillside over some scree and into trees. If that did ever happen, you’d be psyched to be wearing the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt, because it’s RPT Impact Protection would dissipate and absorb impacts from unpleasant contact with the scenery, and the breathable fabric means you wouldn’t even get sweaty while you were riding.

- Q & A
Wow. I am super impressed with G-Form.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The time had come where I needed some good protection for BMX racing. I figured if G-Form was good enough for the Olympic gold medalist (Connor Fields and Mariana Pajon) then I should go with them as well.
Love the technology implemented and the strategic placement of the pads in the vital areas. In the past, I used protection that was just too bulky and restrictive. You can easily wear this protection under your race jersey and pants without hindering range of motion.
The sizing chart was spot on and everything is very form fitting. The elastic bands on the pads really stood out to me. They are strong and don’t get loose during riding. Everything stayed in place the way it should be.
I have not crashed yet while wearing this product but already I feel more confident and barely notice that I am wearing it during a race. Five stars all the way. Great products and well worth the price.
What about the Spine????
After seeing these at a bike shop in Moab, I ordered one. Out of the box they seem comfortable. This is very important to me - if they're not comfortable, I know I won't wear them. My only concern/complaint is that there isn't any protection for the spine. I broken collarbone stinks, trauma to the spinal column can paralyze you for life. If they put the same protection down the spine as they did elsewhere, I would highly recommend these. In G-Forms defense, these aren't advertised to protect the spine.
The way the shirt is currently made, I would highly recommend it, but only for face plants and supermans :)
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
Its a cool product and definitely fills the need but unfortunately it runs small even in XL size and I had to return the item because of that.
Protection where you need it
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is a good option for those all out rides on rocky trails. Good coverage for the shoulders, clavicle and sternum. NOTE- go a size larger if you're muscular build. I'm 6'0", 192 muscular build and the Large was too tight in chest, under arms.
