The Leatt® AdventureTM is an injection molded, glass reinforced nylon, neck brace system, designed by medical professionals and motorcycle enthusiasts to help prevent the following extreme movements:
There is currently no other neck protection system available for motorcyclists that can effectively help prevent all of the above potential injuries. The design rationale behind the Leatt-Brace(R) is to bring the head to a controlled stop. This is achieved by providing a padded rigid structure that acts as an alternate load path for neck forces. Helmet impacts otherwise transmitted from the helmet to skull and then to the neck are re-directed from the helmet to the brace to other body structures in a safe way.
- head, foward - HyperFlexion
- head, rearward - HyperExtension
- head, sideways - Lateral HyperFlexion
- spinal column compression - Axial loading, due to the effect of force on the helmet
- head/helmet, rearward on the neck - Posterior HyperTranslation
The design of the Leatt Adventureprevents the helmet/head from projecting over the brace and therefore prevents a fulcrum action, which has been documented in literature pertaining to the use of collar devices. The Leatt AdventureTM works with most types of body armor and chest protectors. Over long distances, the Leatt® ADVentureTM will also offer some relief from neck fatigue. The Chest-Strap (for upright riding position) included with the Leatt® AdventureTM is designed for the rider who may experience big air and flat-out whoop situations (motocross). Note: Not all riders will find the Chest-Strap necessary.
The Leatt® AdventureTM is compatible with all motorcycle helmet types and our design allows riders an adequate range of movement. The Leatt® ADVentureTM is designed for use on all motorcycles and ATVs for competition use, recreational riding and daily commuting. Leatt-brace® has been tested by BMW Munich, KTM Works Riders, the SABS (South African Bureau of Standards). It is also endorsed by MSA (Motorsport South Africa).
