Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX, MTB

The Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX, MTB, is a structure designed to work with a Motocross style helmet to reduce the risk and severity of a catastrophic neck injury (i.e. paralyzing injury).

Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX, MTB / Features:

  • Bionic Neck Support (BNS) is a structure which is designed to work with a typical MTB full face helmet to reduce the risk and severity of a catastrophic neck injury
  • Provided that the helmet is in contact with the Bionic Neck Support at the moment of impact, the overall load passing through the neck can be reduced, minimizing the likelihood of a neck fracture
  • Also helps reduce the chance of muscular injuries associated with extremes of head movement
  • Fit is critical to ensuring the most effective protection possible and riders should choose the equipment that is best suited to their body - no neck device should roll around over the shoulders
  • Pivot Key system: a special magnesium key located at the rear allows the convenient front opening of the device while also allowing it to be dismantled in an emergency
  • Fitting System: fine adjustment of the shoulder height allows a more personalized fit, particularly for individuals who have a shorter neck
  • Rear Stabilizer Failure system: in the event of large loads being channeled onto the rear stabilizer (the part that sits on the back) there are a number of deliberate bending and fracture points designed to relieve extreme loads that may be transmitted down the back
  • All parts in contact with the body use an expanded foam compound to distribute the impact force over the widest area yet remain light in weight
  • A continuous frame member runs over the shoulders which means there are no weak points in a critical part of the frame and that there are no metal pins or screws sitting directly above the shoulders which could be dislodged into the shoulders or collarbone during an accident
  • Includes the X-Strap System which allows a small, light strap (worn over or under the jersey) to secure the device to the rider
  • Carbon model: features a composite frame to maximize frame stiffness and minimize weight
  • While this product can reduce the likelihood of a severe neck injury, it must be stated at the outset that it may not prevent injuries from occurring in all cases

Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX, MTB / Bottom Line:

The Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX, MTB functions by providing an alternative load path for the energy that compresses the neck. If the helmet is in contact with the Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX and mountain bike at the moment of impact the overall load passing through the neck can be reduced, which may prevent a fracture from occurring. The Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX and mountain bike reduces the chance of muscular injuries from extreme head movement. While it is not possible to eliminate the risk of any form of injury, the Alpinestars Carbon Bionic Neck Support Brace for BMX and mountain bike is designed to help prevent the most serious damage and minimize the risk of collateral injury as the impact load is channeled away from the neck. When compared to soft neck roll devices, the protection afforded is significantly better since soft devices deform on impact, offering no protection against the damaging compressive forces. As with any riding equipment, fit is critical to ensuring the most effective protection possible and riders should choose the equipment that is best suited to their body. No neck device should roll around over the shoulders.
