Protection: LEATT NECK BRACE GPX 5.5 Lime
LEATT NECK BRACE GPX 5.5 Lime
Premium high performance off-road neck brace from the biomedical engineers and medical staff of the Leatt® research lab. The 5.5/6.5 neck brace series is truly the most technologically advanced neck braces in the world. 5.5 balances the need of comfort, effectiveness and safety by allowing freedom of movement and adjustability to more closely meet the needs of top level racers. Leatt®’s commitment to safety ensures that key safety features pioneered by Leatt® are built into each brace.
The core of what makes our neck braces work is the function of directing the crash forces from your helmet to the body and bypassing the neck - Alternative Load Path Technology - ALPT®. For the ALPT® to work at its best, optimal neck braces to body fit is key. The adjustability built into all Leatt® neck braces is not just for comfort, but to ensure a correct fit that assists in optimizing ALPT effectiveness. We believe that no other neck brace can be adjusted to fit riders as well as a Leatt®. The front and rear sliding SureFit adjusters can be set for your personal body shape, without tools, in less than 30 seconds. To further optimize the fit, the comfortable CoreFlex rear thoracic strut has an exclusive feature that allows it to be adjusted in 4 angles.
The semi-rigid chassis is adjustable enough to fit most riders’ body shape while the structure remains very rigid to help transmit energy during an impact. Remember that a rigid construction is key for reducing neck forces. A brace that’s soft or gives way would drastically reduce the function or even increase neck force over time. Multiple engineered fracture points and crumple zones will bend or break away at pre-determined stress levels to help contribute to a riders’ safety.
