2015 KTM GPX 5.5 Neck Brace S/M
When needed, the KTM Neck Brace can safely arrest dangerous movements of the head in both race and road use. The forces arising are transferred effectively from the neck to the upper body. The neck brace offers scientifically and technologically advanced protection against: Hyperflexion (extreme forward movement of the head), Hyperextension (extreme backward movement and overstretching of the neck), Lateral hyperflexion (extreme movement of the head to the side), Axial loading (compression of the spinal column due to a corresponding load on the helmet), Posterial hypertranslation (rearwards shunting of the head into the neck), Uncontrolled movements of the head/helmet in the event of a crash. Energy-absorbing material on the outer surface and body contact surface. CoreFlex in the thoracic spinal area with predefined breaking point for heavy impact situations. Variable size adjustment. Simple handling with quick-release fasteners. Unique height adjustment system on the back for different helmet spacing or sitting positions. Including revamped, optional strap. Detachable clip-on pads for simple cleaning and maintenance.
