Product Description

From the biomedical engineers and medical staff of the Leatt® research labs comes a 100% new neck brace. We believe that the 5.5 neck brace is truly the most technologically advanced neck brace in the world. The CE certified 5.5 neck 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 whilst Leatt®’s commitment to safety ensures that key safety features pioneered by Leatt® are built into each brace. The core of what makes our neck braces work is Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT®) and for the ALPT to work optimally neck braces must fit correctly. 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. We believe that no other neck brace can be adjusted to fit riders as well as a Leatt®. The front and rear sliding SureFit adjusters can be set for your personal body shape, without tools, in less than 30 seconds. The brace can also be readjusted as necessary for growing kids or when worn with different apparel. To further optimize fit, the new and improved CoreFlex rear thoracic strut has an exclusive feature that allows it to be adjusted to 4 setting angles. This is done with a simple elastomeric bumper that can be set at 0, 5, 10 or 15 degrees in seconds. The 5.5 has lowered side areas, below the ear, that increases comfort and wearability, especially on kids, smaller statured riders and riders with shorter necks. A simple pop off shoulder pad that can raise or lower your brace to suit your neck length or helmet rim profiles. Both the front and the back feature has the new split design that promotes broader dissipation of energy transmitted to the body and have new moulded padding for greater comfort. The semi-rigid chassis is flexible and adjustable enough to fit most riders’ body shape while the structure 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 to help contribute to a riders’ safety. The new and improved CoreFlex rear thoracic strut is more comfortable than ever and still has the engineered fracture point at the top that allows it to break away in certain severe impacts. If broken this strut can be purchased as a replacement part and easily changed out. The strut is lined with the same soft padding as on all the surfaces that ride against your body and this protective padding is on the brace edges facing inwards towards the soft tissues of the neck. The injected foam padding is more durable and easier to clean than ever before and designed to accommodate custom sticker kits.

Protective Guide

What is protective equipment?

Protective equipment includes knee pads, elbow pads, shin guard, wrist guards and back protection – any semi-rigid guards you might wear for risky riding.

Who needs protective equipment?

Protective equipment is often favoured by off-road riders, such as mountain bikers tackling riskier activities such as downhilling. Also, stunt riders such as BMXers or jump bike riders might also need them.

What are the choices?

You can choose padding for your arms, legs and back. Some protective gear is made from more flexible material that only hardens on impact – clever stuff.

What should I buy with it?

Don’t forget your head – a full face helmet offers you the best protection for more adventurous cycling activities.

Anything else?

Think about how your padding will fit with the rest of your cycling clothing. Does it go under or over your clothes and will it be compatible with the rest of your cycling wardrobe?
