The Leatt GPX 5.5 Neck Brace is a new addition to the widely acclaimed Leatt-Brace line of neck braces. The GPX 5.5 Leatt neck brace has many safety features engineered into its sleek design. The neck brace is supported by collar bone cutouts that prop up the brace, and keep it away from the more fragile bones. The chassis is made out of polyamide and reinforced with fiberglass for maximum durability, so the brace doesn’t break and cause the rider further injury upon impact. This makes the neck brace, dirt bike and motorsport safe. The rear strut is designed to break away if too much stress is being applied to it, which would result in a back injury for the rider. In the case a rider does get injured, the brace can be removed using an emergency release button. All the safety features make this model the best neck brace for motocross.
The GPX 5.5 is a scaled down version of the classic 6.5 model. This allows the rider slightly more rotational movement, while still providing excellent neck support and protection. The brace is designed with a 360° striking platform for complete neck protection. The newer model is more comfortable, as it allows the head to move more naturally. The front strut is split, applying even pressure to the collar bone, which makes for a more comfortable fit. This feature makes the neck brace, dirt bike compatible. It is available in two different sizes, in conjunction with multiple sliding adjusters, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit for every rider. The rear thoracic struts can also be adjusted to fit any body shape.
The new Leatt neck brace is also very convenient. It folds open and close with the push of a single, low profile button. After folding the brace, it can be easily stored in a Leatt brace bag. The entire neck brace is less than two pounds, and can be easily carried. The foam padding can be removed, cleaned and replaced.
