The Ribtect Chest Protector was tested to the SFI 20.1 Specifications for go-kart chest protectors — effective December 9, 2004.
Tests were performed for:
Ages 5-8 — SFI Spec 20.1/1, size SM1
Ages 9-12 — SFI Spec 20.1/2, size SM2
Proof of compliance for SFI 20.1 requires two measurements from the
6-year-old crash test dummy.
With the chest protector the V*C dropped more than 67% in both tests
to 0.41 m/sec in the first test and to 0.42 m/sec in the second test.
