Peter on snowmobile adventure

Peter Granbrant, a keen snowmobiler from Norrbotten, will be testing KORI in different types of snowmobiling. He previously has bad experience from back protectors and has therefore been snowmobiling without for many years. Peter got interested in the KORI concept that includes the soft and flexible D3O-protector. As a former motorcyclist, Peter draws quite a lot of parallels between motorcycling and snowmobiling.

The first day with KORI on, and on his way to a snowmobile event a couple of Swedish miles away, he very soon gets the confirmation of having made the right choice today, wearing a back protector.

500 meters from home, and after a few tenth of a second of inattention, one of the skis plunges into the snow. The snowmobile stops and overturns and Peter is thrown off at nearly 100km/h. After two solid impacts on the back, he stands up, establishes that he is ok and continues his journey, wondering: “Karma or KORI?”

When arriving at the event, Peter sure had a lot to tell =). He feels that the interest for protection among snowmobilers has grown.

In the evening, the back felt a little stiff but the next morning, Peter basically felt nothing at all. So he took a trip up the Stor Jons Berget. No “stunts” this time =) but a rather sweaty off-road drive upwards the 250 meters high mountain.

At the summit, Peter was surprised that he wasn’t the least wet-sweaty on his back (which he had been before with other protectors). Peter wore KORI for 8 hours without taking it off, despite coffee and talk pauses with people all along the way. He feels that the protector keeps his back warm enough when he takes a pause and that it’s flexible.

We are very happy that the KORI-protector arrived in time!
