You guys laid eyes on the new 661 Droid suit....looks sick. Seems like it functions like the leatt, but also provides core and spine protection. Sick! Get me a Storm Trooper Helmet and I am going racing.....SICK!

looks good. do you think it will offer as much neck protection as the Leatt. Good idea from 661 though. Would be pretty annoying if u break it in a crash though Confused

looks a good idea though. Might not work though from a riders point it can only be good to see more neck braces on the market.

Ive heard of this happening, but a broken collarbone really isnt that big of a deal compared to your life. Make sure that you can fully rotate your arms when you have your armour on with the brace too, that can do some damage

I think this is a moto version, I believe there is a MTB version that has a split in the front so that your torso has more movement.


Can wait to hear the goods on this.

Edit.

Here is the MTB version.

Ideally, you want one of the new Cardbotanium (TM) neck braces. Over 9000 times more likely to prevent injury than a Leatt, and they look better.

best quote about Leatt was on NSMB.com


Personally, I don't give a shit if you wear one or not. Ride around in fear with a neon green toilet seat around your head all season for all I care-it seems to be fashionable.


classic....

kinda the wrong thread but here it goes:

anybody use either two of the Alpinestars Bionic neck braces? im having trouble figuring out what size to get. i used the sizing chart on the a starts website but it doesn't really seem very accurate. im 6'4" 170lbs. it says i need a size small or maybe a medium. im pretty skinny so the charts recommends a small. idk just doesn't seem like thats right. anybody have a A-stars brace? if so what size and whats you weight and height and chest circumference.
Thanks in advance

I am waiting for my brace to show up in Feb. I am a large according to the sizing they use, 44" chest I am 6' 210lbs. At 6'4" and 170lbs you will likely be a smaller chest shape and I bet your measurement is aound 40" Best thing to do it to try and find a dealer and try it on. Fitment is important with any life saving device. Don't rush this purchase.
