OUR THOUGHTS:

At the top of the neck brace offerings by market-leading Leatt, is the GPX 6.5 Carbon neck brace. At first glance, it may appear to bulkier than other options, but it still only weighs about 600 grams.

 

The GPX 6.5 Carbon brace is quite rigid, due to its high-quality carbon construction. This may take a little while for some riders to get used to, but remember, top motocross and off-road riders were consulted when designing this brace. They’re frequently pushing the limits, and they require the strength of the brace construction. In a crash, the impact energy is transferred through the brace and onto the rider’s body, away from the neck and top of the spine. Considering how much impact can be generated during a motocross or off-road fall, you need a strong neck brace and the Leatt 6.5 GPX Carbon delivers. In a worst-case situation, the emergency medical mechanism allows medics to release the brace if needed.

 

The relatively large pads used in the GPX 6.5 help create considerable neck support. The brace does an excellent job of dispersing energy and the injected padding used in the brace will last through a lot of use due to the fact they’re actually molded in. Cut outs in both the front and back halves have been strategically placed to aid with airflow and to reduce overall weight. The neck support can be secured to the rider with a motion-limiting chest strap if preferred. Two sizes of the neck brace are available, small/medium and large/extra large. Further adjustability allows for rider specific fitting.
