Leatt Club II Brace Troy Lee Designs
Leatt Brace Troy Lee Designs GPX Club White. The Leatt Brace is an injection produced glass reinforced nylon or carbon fiber and Kevlar neck brace system designed by medical professionals and Athlete enthusiasts to help prevent:
- Hyperflexion: extreme forward head movement
- Hyperextension: extreme rearward head movement
- Lateral Hyperflexion: extreme sideways head movement
- Axial loading: compression of the spinal column due to the effect of force on the helmet
- Posterior hypertranslation: rearward movement of the head/helmet on the neck.
There is currently no other neck protection system available for riders that can effectively help prevent all of the above potential injuries. The design rationale behind the Leatt-Brace 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.
The design of the Leatt-Brace prevents 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-Brace GPX works with most types of body armor and chest protectors. It is also suitable for use by Superbike riders. Over long distances, the Leatt-Brace will also offer some relief from neck fatigue. Only leathers with a hump require minor modification.
The X-Strap (for upright riding position) and GP-Strap (for Superbike leathers with a hump), included with the GPX, are designed for the extreme rider who may experience "float" at high speeds (Superbike) or in a big air and flat-out whoop situations (Mountain biking). Note: Not all riders will find the X-Strap and the GP-Strap necessary.
The Leatt-Brace GPX is compatible with all motorcycle helmet and mountain biking helmet types and our design allows riders an adequate range of movement.
