Product information

Behold is the most ventilated, flexible, and low-profile back protector on the market.

For every special edition WFL back protector sold, Flaxta donates 20 Euro to Wings for Life.

Wings for Life aims to help injured people getting back their independence and ability to move. Flaxta enables them to protect it in the first place. Freedom is privilege. Stay protected.

For the 22/23 season,
we are proud to introduce the Flaxta x Wings for Life Edition.

It incorporates Flaxta’s AVA protection system, short for Absorb, Vent, and Adapt, which brings absorption, ventilation, and adaption to an unprecedented new level. 

The vest has been constructed for flexibility and breathability and features an optional elastic waistband.

Our goal is to get more people to consider wearing back protection. Our back protectors target all skiers and snowboarders who find current back protectors too stiff, warm, and bulky. Getting these riders to consider wearing back protection has been our main focus and we are excited to contribute and make skiing and snowboarding safer.

Certified according to EN 1621-2, Level 1 standard.

The AVA Back Plate

The flexible compound integrated into our Behold back protector is based on a viscoelastic polymer and reduces impact force by viscous and elastic deformation.

It deforms AND stiffens, which means that the impact energy is both spread out, as well as absorbed.

By optimizing and balancing its properties carefully, we have been able to meet the certification requirements, while offering an unprecedented level of flexibility and ventilation.

AVA Protection System

By using our AVA compound, we have been able to create the most ventilated, flexible, and low-profile back protector on the market.

AVA is short for Absorb, Vent and Adapt, and has been developed together with leading polymer experts and members from Flaxta Science Crew.

Your new favorite back protector.

Experience a whole new level of ventilation, flexibilty and comfort.
