competition for the leatt brace eh?

I know that more & more of the pros are wearing the leatt or similar neck protection nowadays, but with all-do respect to the people who make & sell these things, I just don't see myself wearing one. I know, spine protection, "you could end up paralyzed" yadda yadda yadda... I get it. Believe me I get it.

My decision comes from my experience wearing a chest protector when I ride on public tracks. I've noticed that my helmet gets snagged on it & limits my range of motion. I have this phobia that the neck braces like these will do the same thing.

I'm not trying to start an argument or down-play the importance of good protection by ANY means, I'm just sayin' I'm a little paranoid & can't come up with a good enough essay as to why I should win one.

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

The Leatt and this new one are great Ideas. Being a fairly new item it will be a few years till someone perfects it and all the worries of range of motion and what not will be gone. For now it is all that is available and will have to do.

Kind of, but, it works diffrently - the HANS tethers the wearers neck to a frame, devices like this stop the wearers head from being snapped around -

A friend of mine bought the EVS one.
His opinion after the first weekend is it's crap.
Chafes his neck, Have to pull the helmet off to remove, The padding is glued on & was coming apart after only one weekend.
Limitations were not much of an issue. More or less forgot it was there until he tucked for high speed sections.

He recommends going for the Leatt. Much better & higher quality.
He kicks himself now for getting the EVS.
