Frustrated with posture and want to improve your riding position? Then you'll love this jacket (gilet) style technical training aid. Used internationally by elite riders, coaches and happy hackers alike.
Ten years working in association with leading medical and riding professionals has helped deliver this unique and extremely powerful training aid. To improve posture it is essential first to understand how good posture feels. Through wearing the gilet the torso is mechanically aligned and essential biofeedback is provided.
Depending on your reason for using this gilet, once good posture is established the gilet need only be worn intermittently. For those who worry about becoming dependent on being 'braced', have no fear. The device will not make you weaker, in fact, quite the opposite. By correcting musculoskeletal structures, the muscles are placed in a better position and work more efficiently at improving form and reducing risk of injury through muscle fatigue.
Make no mistake, this gilet will have you sitting up like a professional rider in no time. Powerful components, incorporated within, combine to draw back shoulders in line with hips, whilst those all-important core muscles get the work-out of their lives. Rider position is transformed bringing with it game-changing results.

✔ Improves musculoskeletal alignment promoting better balance.
✔ Strengthens core engagement and improves nerve-flow.
✔ Provides essential bio-feedback for us to recognise how correct posture should feel.
✔ Prevents the natural tendency to go into a foetal like slumped position when faced with danger or fear and instead an upright balanced position is maintained.
✔ Concealed components draw the shoulders back and lift the ribcage (diaphragm) up and away from pelvic activity, resulting in lighter hand-to-horse contact.
✔ Helps maintain shoulder strength and stability, through an arrangement of internal straps that work to hold shoulder blades (scapulae) to the chest wall.
✔ Encourages opening of the chest cavity for deeper breathing.
✔ Allows your coach to concentrate on your riding technique rather than nagging you about posture.
