    Size: Lg Both the Bionic Neck Support (BNS) and the Bionic SB Neck Support (Bio SB) are designed to work with a helmet to reduce the risk and severity of a catastrophic neck injury (i.e. a paralyzing injury) While no product can guarantee protection from all motorcycle injuries, due to the varied dynamics of accidents, the BNS is designed to substantially reduce the likelyhood of a serious neck injury, although it must be stated that the BNS, as with other such systems, may not prevent injury from occurring in all cases Functions by providing an alternate load path for the energy that compresses the neck If the helmet is in contact with the BNS at the moment of impact, the overall load passing through the neck can be reduced, which may prevent a fracture from occurring Also helps reduce the chance of muscular injuries associated with extremes of head movement While it is not possible to eliminate the risk of any form of injury, the BNS and Bio SB are designed to help prevent the most serious damageand minimize the risk of collateral injury as the impact load is channeled away from the neck When compared to soft neck roll devices, the protection provided is significantly better because being soft, these devices simply deform, offering no protection against damaging compressive forces Fit is critical to ensure the most effective protection possible; riders should choose the equipment size best suited for their body; the BNS or Bio SB should not roll around over the shoulders Pivot Key System: A special magnesium key located at the rear allows the convenient front opening of the device and allows for quick dismantling in an emergency Fitting System: A fine adjustment of shoulder height allows a more personal fit, particularly for individuals with a shorter than normal neck Rear Stabilizer Failure System: in the event of large loads being channeled onto the rear stabilizer (the part that sits on the back) there are a number of deliberate bending and fracture points designed to relieve extreme loads that may be transmitted down the back These include: deflection of the foam tail (grooves to allow deflection of support structure tip), fracture area of support structure tip, fracture of supporting members (also fracture if subject to side loads that could cause a large rotation to the head) Collar bone preservation: All parts in contact with the body use an expanded foam compound to distribute the impact over the widest possible area, yet still be light in weight Collar bone preservation 2: A continuous frame member runs over the shoulders, this means there are no weak points in a critical part of the BNS and Bio SB frame and that there are no metal pins or screws sitting directly above the shoulders that could come dislodged into the shoulders or collarbone during an accident Supplied with the X-Strap system which allows a small, light strap (worn over or under the jersey) to secure the device to the rider Special blend of reinforced polyurethane main frame construction for a high-strength yet forgiving design that transfers high-impact loads effectively
  2. I personaly have never worn a necbrace, so i was wondering who wears em' and who doesnt? Is it just ignorance that makes most people not wear them or is their other reasons? Ofcourse theirs pro's to wearing em' what are the cons?

    The R4K is a completely new race collar for 2016. It features a revolutionary Koroyd™ core with superior impact absorption and a reinforced nylon upper shell. The chassis has been completely redesigned to be lighter and more aerodynamic. In an impact, the head is pushed down on the race collar. The R4K effectively fills the gap between your helmet and shoulder with Koroyd, which absorbs impact energy better than standard race collar materials. - Koroyd® engineered core for superior impact absorption - Reinforced nylon upper shell - Lightweight, aerodynamic chassis design - Rapid lock closure system for easy front entry - Integrated X-Strap cleats - Polyurethane foam base - Sizes: Youth, Adult
  4. There is a lot of debate about neck braces these days. I think that's a good thing. Turns out I have my own little micro-study of safety equipment going on, which today included another test of the 6D (no concussion, as usual, and no surprise there) and a Leatt GPX Pro Lite. Big surprise with the Leatt. If any coaches out there would be willing to comment on the crash, it would be welcome (seriously), but that isn't the point here. I think as kids start getting faster, they start putting themselves in harm's way much more quickly than we can keep up. There were a couple of crashes today by other kids, and I hope all were OK. I know my son was fine. I originally inspected the Leatt after the crash and was kind of annoyed that the clasp broke off. I figured it was designed to do that, and it probably couldn't be replaced (according to our neighbors at the track) and that was that. Nothing serious. Then I looked closer and noticed the whole brace was destroyed. I put white marker on the two parts of the brace that snapped and took some pics. I also noticed the thoracic strut was cracked, right where it should be, and the back helmet support was snapped clean. How much force did that thing absorb? Enough, in this case. The focus of the crash was on the front top right of the head. The 6D shows that clearly, and it needs to be sent in. I will let you know about that. The Leatt is roasted. The controlled destruction of that thing is remarkable. So that's my latest addition to our group knowledge of the subject. I do wish in some ways (particularly financially, lol) that I did not have as much to add on these subjects, but I also know I am not alone. I lost count of how many parents and riders told me today that the brace did exactly what it was supposed to do. Others shared similar experiences. One guy said "Yup, same thing happened to my boy. Bought him another one and didn't even think about it." I get that. Here is the video of the crash and the pics of the brace. I also just added this link to YouTube if you can't access the video below: [/url]
  5. Lemme preface this by saying I can get this brace at a VERY good price, and need to order it tonight to ensure its here by Friday so I can wear it at practice sat...for the race sunday. So, with that said, if I buy one...its going to be this one...Trying to avoid this being another neck brace debate of any sort, lol. Getting back into a lot more track riding, and racing this weekend for first time in a long time. So, I figured I would spring for one at this point. Before, when just trail riding...i didnt do so. I am just wondering if anyone has one... 1) do you know if it works with any chest protector, or only the "pro lite"? 2) do you like it? 3) did sizing seem to be pretty good... i fit in the middle of the L/XL sizing, so I can't see how it could possibly be wrong unless the Leatt sizing chart is WAY off. Tryin to find stuff about these, but I am not seeing a whole lot on google, or searching here that answered those too well if at all. Thanks. Edit: I think the valor looks similar to the zenith, which those would fit beneath chest protectors. So...im just gonna try it with my Thor for now, can get the other one later...just not in time for this weekend. Also, decided to give it a shot. Btw, these things are hard to find user reviews on...so maybe ill write one up when I get it, and use it this weekend.
  6. 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.
  7. Do you guys think either are a necessity? I've never seen anyone dog knee braces before, but I see some people saying that neck braces make it very easy to break collar bones(but id rather break a collar bone than my neck right?). Is there any credibility to this? I can afford both but before spending big bucks on them what are your experiences with neck and knee braces?
  8. Are neck braces really a good choice? How hard are they to get use too? I've been thinking about getting one but I feel like it would mess with me
  9. Dr Mark, what is your take on neck braces & which ones are good which ones are not? Note: I don't care what others opinions on the subject are, or that you own a Leatt & it saved you 10 times over, I just want to know what the doc thinks. Please save your stories of salvation for another thread & go elsewhere to bash each other about this subject.

  11. 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.
  12. Anyone use the Leatt Fusion 3.0 Adult Chest/Neck protection yet? I dont ride with a neck protector, and have been thinking about getting this one. Any reviews out there? Isaac
  13. I am kinda on the fence since I've heard some horror stories about leatts. The tail that is supposed to break off went Into the guy's spine and paralyzed him. I know of another that the brace broke his collar bone. Is there any brace without this kind of reputation?
  14. Hi, was just wondering if anyone would be able to tell me if the leatt gpx pro carbon medium would fit someone that is 6'3 215lbs thinking about buying one online
