Atlas - 2014 Ryan Villopoto Signature Original Neck Brace
The Atlas Brace™ was born and fueled from the racers perspective. Designed by a racer and refined over a 3 year period by a team of engineers and bio-mechanical experts, then tested by some of the top professional riders in the world. The end result delivers innovative features, comfort, simplicity and adjustability. Simply put, the Atlas Brace has it all.
Simply lower the Atlas Brace™ on/off over your head like a helmet.
Simplistic flexible design:
The Atlas Brace™ is the first non-rigid brace on the market. By creating a simplified design, and allowing the frame to flex upward and downward in the rear, the Atlas brace™ maximizes comfort, minimizes bulk.
3 Axis adjustability:
The Atlas Brace™ is the only brace to offer 3-axis adjustability. Rear mount offsets for length (chest size), and optional shoulder padding for height (neck length) are both adjustable right out of the box. A wide body kit to adjust the width of the brace is sold separately and is designed for users that want a wider stance for the brace on their shoulders, or for those who want an easier fit when putting the brace on over head.
Open Frame Design:
High strength Polycarbonate construction is impact resistant, shatter resistant, produces a vibrant finish, and easily accepts custom graphics. The split frame allows the rear of the Atlas Brace™ to flex upward & downward so the brace moves when you do. Custom polycarbonate construction provides the strength needed to protect, while the split frame limits overall rigidity, adding comfort & mobility.
ERS (Emergency Release System):
The ERS provides safe, one of a kind removal of the brace after a severe crash, Performed in 3 simple steps.
- Remove pin through the front axle nut
- Remove front axle nut by spinning counter-clockwise
- Pull the brace apart horizontally in 2 parts, and remove.
Each brace size is determined by a users chest circumference, measured just above the nipples. Each size is adjustable, and the below guide can be used to determine the right size for any individual.
Small - 33” - 36” (84cm - 92cm)
Medium - 37” - 41” (94cm - 104cm)
Large - 42”+ (106cm+)
Each brace comes assembled in the smallest configuration of the respected size, and comes with one extra set of rear mounts to adjust for chest size. Changing these rear mounts will make each brace fit a bigger chest. The brace can also be adjusted for height by taking out the optional shoulder padding that comes attached on each brace.By removing this optional shoulder padding, the height of the brace will be lowered, and the brace will fit slightly tighter on the chest. Finding the proper fit will provide the ultimate comfort and safety for every individual. While standing strait up, the brace should fit snug on the users chest and back. If the user wishes to adjust the width of the brace, this is possible by purchasing the “Wide Body Kit” which is sold separately.
Please note that this sizing is just a guideline. Every individual is shaped differently, and may not be the exact size as outlined in this guide.
