Leatt went back to the drawing board for 2014, refining and tweaking their classic DBX neck brace design to provide more adjustability and a better fit. The new DBX 5.5 neck brace offers increased freedom of motion thanks to an even lower profile in addition to 5-way adjustability that takes just seconds to do. The brace's chassis is made with fiberglass reinforced polyamide. One feature we really dig is that the rear thoracic strut folds in for easier, more compact storage.

Leatt says the CE certified brace balances the needs of comfort, effectiveness and safety by allowing greater freedom of movement and adjustment to more closely meet the needs of top level racers. The adjustability built into all Leatt neck braces is not just for comfort, but to ensure a correct fit that assists in optimizing effectiveness of your neck brace. They also claim that no other neck brace can be adjusted to fit riders as well as this one.

The 5.5 has lowered side areas that increases comfort and range of motion for pro racers, kids, smaller statured riders and riders with shorter necks. Both the front and the back have the new split design that promotes broader dissipation of energy. The semi-rigid chassis is flexible yet remains rigid enough to help transmit energy during an impact while multiple engineered fracture points and crumple zones will bend or break away at pre-determined stress levels. A collarbone cutout helps keep your helmet and brace away from your most fragile bones.

The DBX 5.5 is CE certified as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE 89/686/EEC), and each 5.5 brace comes with a clear chest strap. It weighs in at 800 grams and is offered in two adult sizes and a junior option. Colors include black, black/green, white, and red/black for adults at $369 (top). For the groms, white/red or white/green are available for $299 (bottom).

The braces are available now. Check out www.leatt.com for more details.
