Leatt announced the new Leatt DBX 3.5 Neck Brace end of last year. Now all models, including the Junior version, are available worldwide.
The lightest neck brace in the Leatt range, the 3.5 is over 30 per cent lighter than the existing 5.5 models and features a combination of in-moulded EPS construction with a polyamide core, similar to materials found in high-performance bicycle helmets.
The 5.5 and 6.5 Leatt neck brace models offer a more custom fit than the 3.5. The semi-rigid chassis is still adjustable to fit most riders’ body shapes. Like all previous Leatt neck brace models, the DBX 3.5 is CE certified as Personal Protective Equipment. It has been lab-tested and proven to reduce neck forces, thereby lowering chances of a serious neck injury by up to 47 per cent, according to Leatt.
The 3.5 Neck Brace is not only the lightest in the range it's also the most cost-effective at an entry-level price point of RRP £242 for the adult models and £199 for the youth models.
