Axo Pentagon Armour

5 years ago | Words: Grant O'Brian

Axo has been producing protection wear for riders of all levels since the late 70s. Their aim is to help riders achieve and go beyond their limits while keeping them safe. Recently Axo released a new line of body armour called Pentagon, available in two versions – the Morpho, and the lighter Bio – that offer maximum protection along with the advantage of being very adaptable for a wide range of sizes. Here’s the Axo-supplied info about their new armour, which we plan to review in the coming months.

Pentagon Morpho Frame Protector

The Axo Morpho armour weighs in at a mere 1.45kg and is designed with smooth edges so it can be worn comfortably under a jersey. Four plastic panels in the front and back for maximum adaptability and extra adjustability means one size will fit anywhere between a Small to XLarge. The Pentagon has certified Level 2 protectors in the full back, shoulders and chest, making this armour a winner in safety, comfort and versatility.

Key Features:

  • Back protector with bodice and shoulder protection: Level 2, CE EN 1621 certificated.
  • External plastic shells with shock absorber foam.
  • Inner padding covered with breathable and antibacterial material.

If you prefer a little less bulk in your crash padding, the Pentagon Bio Frame is a featherweight at only 710g, and apart from shoulder protectors, it still has the features of its heftier brother.
