Stabilizer Springs

Source Starfinder Armory pg. 85
Item Level 1; Price 400
Slots 1; Armor Type Light, Heavy; Bulk
These carefully calibrated, high-quality springs installed around the ankles and knees of the armor make your stance more balanced. You gain a +2 circumstance bonus to Acrobatics checks to balance on narrow surfaces, a +2 circumstance bonus to AC against trip combat maneuvers, and a +2 circumstance bonus to Reflex saves against effects that knock you prone (such as the grease spell or the knee shot operative exploit).

This upgrade can be installed only in light or heavy armor.
