I want to thank O’Neal for their rider support discount which allowed me to be able to afford the rider protection I need to compete without the fear of destroying my body.  My grandpa just placed the order for the O’Neal Underdog III Protector which looks amazing.  I can’t wait to put it on and test it on the track.

All decked out in my red O’Neal Riding Gear

I just received the box with my Body Amor.  I was excited to try it on and had read quite a few reviews about it.  A few of the Pro riders who wear it said that the back protection pad was a little thick and sometimes would get hung up with gear.  They suggested a new pad from O’Neal.  Anyway, I tried to get it on.  It was almost like a wet suit.  It was a tight fit.  I ordered a Large since that is what most of my shirts are but this did not fit.  I could not even zip it up.  My grandpa is emailing O’Neal to see if we can replace it with an X-Large.  I’m 6’0″ and around 185 lbs.  I’ll let everybody know the difference when I try on the X-Large.

So, I sent back the Large but got dinged for return shipping and then had to pay again for the replacement X-Large shipping, bummer; just extra cost added to the Body Armor.
The X-Large isn’t that much larger than the Large so be careful when you order online.  You need to find a dealer to try it on before you buy it.  After wearing it during practice the elbow protection and the lower sleeves actually cut off the circulation in my arms; not good.  My grandpa had an idea.  I still needed the protection of the vest, front and back including the shoulders so he grabbed a razor knife and cut off the sleeves right below the shoulder pads; worked great.  I still have the protection of the vest; just not the elbows.  Then after the race my grandma who really knows how to sew clothing cleaned up the cut fabric. O’Neal should consider this as an option.  Lastly, I need to change out the back pad to a gel filled pad.  The one that comes with the vest makes the vest uncomfortable to ride in and catches everything on the back.

I wore the O’Neal vest with the changes with comfort and knowing that I had protection with the exception of the elbows and lower arms.  


  1. Looking good Taylor. You'll be really protected against all of the minor injuries you've gone through starting out as a beginner. I know that you might think you're invincible being only 16 but you're not. Now with being sponsored by Asterisk Knee Braces which are simply the most amazing knee brace on the market and being supported by O'Neal Rider Support and wearing the Underdog III Protector you will be able to ride in confidence. Thanks Asterisk and O'Neal for supporting the youth of today and the adults of tomorrow.

  2. I am so happy that you are now able to ride with protection. Thanks to Asterisk sponsoring you with amazing knee braces and with the O'Neal Underdog 111 Protector I feel so much better you are riding with gear that will protect you. I am so proud of your progress Taylor, keep up the good work! Love you, Grandma Debbie

  3. Right after practice in the morning prior to the race Taylor said that the vest cut off the circulation in his arms. Because the vest offers so much other protection I suggested that we simply cut off the lower arm protection. I grabbed a razor knife and made the cut and modifications. It worked great at the track. When we got home, my wife did her magic on the arms and made them look like they were straight from the factory. …Worked like a charm. I do suggest that before purchasing a vest that you find somewhere to try one on first to get the proper fit.

  4. Good website! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes it is. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which may do the trick? Have a great day! 먹튀검증
