The biomedical engineers and medical staff of the Leatt lab bring a 100% new neck brace for 2014. The CE certified DBX 5.5 neck brace balances the needs of comfort, effectiveness and safety by allowing greater freedom of movement. The adjustability built into all Leatt neck braces is not just for comfort, but to ensure a correct fit that assists in optimizing effectiveness of your neck brace. No other neck brace can be adjusted to fit riders as well as a Leatt. The 5.5 has lowered side areas that increases comfort and range of motion for pro racers, kids, smaller statured riders and riders with shorter necks. Both the front and the back have the new split design that promotes broader dissipation of energy. The semi-rigid chassis is flexible yet remains rigid enough to help transmit energy during an impact while multiple engineered fracture points and crumple zones will bend or break away at per-determined stress levels to aid riders’ safety. Engineered collarbone cutout to help keep your helmet and the neck brace away from your most fragile bones. CE certified as Personal Protective Equipment, PPE 89/686/EEC.
