Who out there has tried/owned both the Atlas neck brace and the Leatt club 2 or 3? Which one offers more protection? The Leatt's thoratic piece sits on your spine while the Atlas has 2 pieces to each side of your spine. And the Leatt doesnt touch your collar bone, but it looks like the Atlas does. Which would you say I should buy. Im not worried about pricing.
I'm intersted in purchasing a new leatt neck brace. I currently own a GPX Adventure II neck brace, but feel that the protection is inadequate from what I understand about the new braces. Also, weight is substantially heavier than both models listed above.
If anybody has ridden with either or both and have an opinion, I would love your insight.
Thank you very much and Happy New Year to all.
Curious what motorcycle gear others are wearing for different riding on the LRP.
I'm in need of some summer gear and want a DS helmet too. I just started to look around, for now here is what I use...
Icon 1000 Chapter jacket in grey. Very high quality piece, love this jacket.
Couple different pair of gloves depending on temps.
Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket, nice and warm.
Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 heated gear: Jacket liner, pant liner and leather gloves.
Firstgear Overpants, I only wear these on the longer rides.
A few pair of fleece lined jeans and cargo pants.
I want to pick up a new textile/mesh jacket for those hot days. Since I ride 90% street anyway maybe just a mesh street jacket?
I'm down to two helmets, an old Shoei RF800 and a new Bell Star Rally Red with monochromatic shield. Unless I'm going to leave my helmet on the bike then I will take the Bell, the auto tinting shield works perfectly, WAY better than some cheaper glasses that I have had that do that. Now am looking to add a DS helmet, maybe the Arai XD-4?
Funny thing is I have been riding street for 22 years and had the same leather jacket until 2 years ago when I started to get better gear. I always got a new helmet every 5-6 years but that was it really. I have to say having nice gear really makes the ride for me, never really noticed it until recently though.
Anyway, please share what you have or plan to get, and any advice on DS helmets would be good too.
