MTB Neck Braces for the more serious racers
Neck braces are a relatively recent addition to downhill racing protective gear, but cross over from the motocross world where neck braces have been embraced for many years. Some riders feel they don't need it. Whether neck protection is right for you depends on the type of riding you're doing, where you're riding, and how you ride. A bicycle neck brace restricts any extreme movement of your neck during a crash. In other words, it prevents your head from tilting too far forward, backward, or to the side, all of which can damage the spinal cord. A spinal cord injury can, at best, keep you off the bike for six to eight weeks or, at worst, put you in a wheelchair. Why take the risk of serious injury? The neck braces you see here are the best available and they are in-stock, ready to ship. Do it and be done with it.
