Leatt have released two new neck braces dubbed the DBX Ride and DBX Comp, aimed at downhill and BMX riders.
The braces feature the company’s patented Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT), which is designed to spread the force of a crash away from the neck to the upper torso.
The £229.99 DBX Ride is made of glass-reinforced nylon and offers only basic adjustments. The more expensive £349.99 DBX Comp offers full individual adjustability.
A spokesman from UK distributors Hotlines said: “The DBX series of Leatt braces offers lower profile padding and weight, as well as being designed to work more effectively with lower profile, lighter weight mountain bike full-face helmets. The cheaper of the two DBX braces, the Ride model, comes in at over £100 cheaper* than the most basic GPX model.”
