Added a comment about product review Tested: Atlas Crank Carbon Neck Brace 9/10/2014 9:39 PM

We+ve been testing these since the 2013 model, and although we liked them in general, we have serious concerns about both the emergency release systems in the normal "Crank" and Carbon version. They are hard to manipulate, and cant think of an injured rider being handled by emergency personnel "trying" to get the brace out without moving the injured person, just not possible. Aside from that and (the ERS systems) we find the company to be uncommunicative and unprofessional towards customer support.

But the brace itself has potential. Though mostly for the communication part we are switching our team to another brand next season.

Very interesting- thanks for that end of season wrap up. Now lets play- whose riding for Intense/Palmer?!

I thought your continuous bets on Bryceland were risky because I expected his results to be inconsistent. Oh how wrong I was.

Brosnan was one I had total faith in at the beginning of the year and he totally delivered. Glad you guys showed the same faith.

If Greg three peats, that would be massive. And the boxer goes home with no one.

Admittedly we did get a excited about what we were doing and made the announcement about 7iDP a little prematurely. However, we knew that we didn't want to introduce the product to the consumer market until we felt t was 100%...more

The Freestone has been reviewed recently here in Vital.

Seriously, what the.... is wrong with companies just babbling about their intensive helmet research and desing when all they do is pick color scheme from chinese providers.... #FailSevenProtection

That FF looks like the cheap 661, and the half-shell also looks curiously familiar.

I would doubt that the back protector can actually protect as much as a hardshell, say the Leatt Adventure Lite, in the event of a highs speed crash in a Downhill track. But still, nothing is way worse than some protection, I can see it in the Enduro world, but not as full DH.

Better Smart than Sorry.
