The Leatt DBX 6.5 MTB Neck Brace is Ultra Lightweight

Protecting yourself shouldn't feel like a constant weight on your shoulders. Luckily the top of the line Leatt DBX 6.5 Carbon Neck Brace is so lightweight, you may forget it is on. Its carbon chassis is made to give the best protection possible, without the heavy or obtuse feeling that is often a burden with other neck braces. Leatt has taken all the features and innovation of the 5.5 neck brace and turned it into the 6.5, for the rider who wants an even lighter option. While the features are similar, we prefer the 6.5 over the 5.5 and 4.5 because of how great it feels when it is on. Neck braces can often feel awkward or uncomfortable, but the 6.5 completes your kit without any added discomfort. The CE certified 6.5 neck brace balances the needs of comfort, efficiency, and protection by allowing greater freedom of movement while having increased adjustability, assuring a great fit. 

Alternative Load Path Technology - What separates Leatt from their competitors? Simply put, it's Leatt's patented Alternative Load Path Technology. Used on all Leatt neck braces, Alternative Load Path Technology spares your neck and back from absorbing all the energy of a blow. Instead, the neck brace intercepts the impact from the skull by dispersing the force, thus sparing you from a more serious, potentially season-ending neck injury. Working in conjunction with a full face helmet, the neck brace guards against extreme backward-bending of the head (hyper-extension); extreme forward bending of the head (hyperflexion); and over-bending of the head to either side (lateral hyperflexion). Additionally, the neck brace is protective when the chin bar takes the brunt of a face plant and pushes the neck backward (posterior hypertranslation). In certain scenarios, the neck brace can prevent axial loading.

Fit and Adjustability - The Leatt 6.5 has increased ease of use compared to the lesser priced 4.5 model. It allows for faster, toolless adjustability to ensure the right fit. While the 4.5 uses an Allen wrench to add and remove different sized spacers, the 6.5 has a much faster and efficient sliding front and rear SureFit adjusters. The adjustment latch snaps into place and can be resized in seconds. The FlexCore thoracic strut has 0,5,10 and 15-degree adjustable rubber spacers to allow for a more precise fit to the rider's back. We love how easy the 6.5 is to adjust and fit. The 6.5 is fully adjustable in under 30 seconds, and with its lightweight frame, it is the best option in neck braces. 

About Leatt

Sometimes it takes a tragedy to create a change. Such was the case in South Africa in 2001 when Dr. Chris Leatt, a medical doctor and motorcycle rider, went to a racetrack with his son who himself had just begun to ride. There, Dr. Leatt witnessed the death of another rider, Alan Selby, from suspected neck injuries. Dr. Leatt was so shaken by the incident that he made it his mission to develop a device that would go a substantial way toward preventing this type of fatal injury in the future. After three years of research, development, and testing, Dr. Leatt introduced his first Leatt-Brace. However, it would be another two years before the Leatt-Brace would make it to market on a large scale. Today, Leatt-Brace is a worldwide leader in neck protection for extreme sports. Dr. Leatt likes to say the Leatt Brace is "a helmet for your neck". Designers and engineers in the Leatt laboratory in South Africa have expanded their reach to high-technology protective armor that meet varying needs of downhill mountain bikers, bmx bikers, and skiers and snowboarders.
