Neck brace...thoughs? (Leatt, Apine etc.)
Posted 26 April 2012 - 07:46 AM
Ex: Leatt adventure, good features but with minimal setup.
Leatt Club, same as the adventure but with more setup features, +100$
Leatt Pro, just expensive, im sure its great, out of my price range though.
Alpine seems to be mounting they price too, some company's have them for as little as 100 bucks. I know they're are some difference, however, is it a personal thing or some are actually better?
I'm not going to argue if its needed or not, there is plenty places for those forums, im looking for opinions on braces that ppl have already tried and hated or liked and why?

I have never worn a brace, never tried any of the other ones or anything (I race in the bush, not the track). My shop just brought the Atlas in, I'm one of the few that actually has one to date and from my limited experience, I really like the product.

I felt that exact same way at first but after a few rides with it, I forgot I even had it on once I got used to it a little more and got it adjusted correctly. I dont find it to be all that restricting at all. I dont wear mine much anymore but only because its a little on the small side. Not to debate or undermind you but are you 100% sure it was adjusted correctly?

Got ya... I have a buddy who says the same thing. Thats kind of the reason I asked. He has big shoulders and a short neck as well so that is probably your issue as well

Maybe one day I will fit into it again! For now though the Astars should get the job done. I have quite a few buddies that say they like it better than the Leatt but Im too big to try any of them out. Hoping mine will be here tomm or Sat. so I can try it out this weekend. Ill give a full report and comparison if you dont purchase one before Sat or Sunday.
