I believe what you're seeing is the straps that secure the Alpinstar neck brace. Those straps hook on to the outside of the neck brace to keep it from shifting around. I own this neck brace and use the straps. You don't notice so much they're on until you take off the brace.

Yeap that's exactly why. My buddy once got home after riding and had forgotten to pull the tape off of his nipples. As he was changing while talking to his brand new girlfriend she looked confused after he removed his shirt. He saw her concerned look and then looked down to see his silvery duct taped pointers and before he could explain about the chafing that happens she said "no-no, I really don't want to know" lol.

I wondered what that strap was for as well? X-straps for a neck brace makes sense, I ussumed it was a heart rate monitor or something like that. I know never assume...

That happened to me last year for the first time. Feels like stinging needles in your nips.

I'm not so sure it's for neck braces. Leatt does not show anything like that available, and the straps appear under the jersey, and the neck braces rest on top. Can't think of what else it would be used for. If it is for neck braces, anyone know where to buy one?
