                  Leatt GPX 5.5 Neck Brace

                  Leatt believes that the 5.5 Neck Brace is 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 Leatt neck braces work is Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT), and for the ALPT to work optimall, 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. 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 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 molded 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 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. 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.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of adjustability I got the Leatt 5.5 as it has tons of adjustability and I can adjust it on the fly to work with armour and a jersey or armour and various jackets. Awesome protection from one of the leaders in the neck brace industry.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected A friend of mine from South Africa recommended this neck protector to me & after some research of my own I decide to purchase it from Fortnine. The ordering product was seamless and delivery only a few days after. It was easy to adjust to my body and I use it every time that I ride now. It’s so comfortable that I don’t even know it’s there. It adds an extra level of protection and security that I’m very pleased about. There are lighter, more expensive products available, but I can’t see why I’d spend more for everyday use.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. Although it is recommended to wear it against your body, I wear my neck brace on top of my first gear kilimanjaro jacket. (Leatt says you can do this on there website) It fits nice, I dont even notice I'm wearing it untill I take my jacket off, and with the quick release it's easy to remove. I got to test out the neck brace while on my last ride. I was on a steep decline going about 30kph, I didnt notice the deep rut in the thick prairie grass. My front tire hit the side of the rut and with the wet prairie grass I basically slammed hard onto my right shoulder. The neck brace kept my head from hitting the ground and my neck from getting whip lash, also with the 3d0 armour in my jacket I walked away with no more than a bruised ego and a sore shoulder. Not that this was a horrific crash, but I went to work the next day.

                  Questions

                   I am looking at getting this neckbrace my chest is 37 inches just wanted to check small medium is my size correct 

                  Asked by: Luke KDX
                  Yes, with a chest measurement of 37 inches, the S/M of the Leatt 5.5 neck brace should be a good fit.

                  Will it fit over a fox titan armor jacket ?

                  Asked by: Thierrix
                  We had a fox titan first and I would say no not very well we had to tuck the back of the neck brace inside We now all have the Leatt 5.5 Pro chest protector and it is the way to go Fit is perfect
