Connor Fearon and Mitch Delfs were sporting a rather unique neck brace at World Champs. According to Dainese, the 'Hybrid Neck Brace' uses soft cushions under the carbon fiber frame to help absorb any impacts while the rigid frame distributes and transfers the load, hence the "Hybrid" name (a combo of rigid + soft technology). Unlike most popular braces, there are no elements that sit on the spine or sternum. It sits over areas protected by big muscles. It also appears as though it'd be compatible with most types of armor as it the wide wings at the back likely won't interfere with a back protector. From the sounds of things, the brace is still very much in the development stage. More when we get it!
