Anya recommendations for Rib protectors for 7/8 year old. Recently bought a size S based on the rye house ones they use for K1 stars but came up very large - must have been a S adult size. Hard to find kids ones that aren’t £££

Welcome to KartingForum.co.uk!

As it's specific for Bambino/small kids size I'd definitally double check the measurments and size guides. Or maybe even get little one to try it on for size to make sure he's comfy. Though they feel very different out the Kart than they do in.

You'll find the most common ones are the Bengio or the Tillet P1. The Sparco also seems a good bit of kit, I have run one a couple of times now. Great back protection with the Sparco. Bengio and Tillet are quite popular.

Bengio

The lads at NextKarting are highly recomended for the Bengio! 👇
