Uhmm.... that's probably a question best asked in the off-road or racing sections, as this tends to be more street-oriented.

However... any folks care to chime in about the proper things to look for with a neck brace?

I think that the proper thing is not called a "neck brace" at all.
Wish I could remember what it IS called.  cry

When one rides a street iron they need to make a shoulder check to see if their intent to get over to the left lane is not partially blocked by a cage.

In the dirt I do not know for I put 42 yrs of dirt comp practicing & believe me for every event to come up one needs to practice a LOT.  Often my practicing was all on my own & never with other comp riders.  So any prangs in practicing were due to the many concussions I had in those days.

So a neck brace aimed mainly at drivers of racing cars I think things are different for a few have died, in past years due to the fluid in the brain section being chased off to some other area & the brain was against the scull.

You might suggest to your 11 year old son to wait a few more years before taking up racing a bike in competition.  Mind you they will also need the same when using a skate-board to a bicycle.

I do not think my parents worried for in '46 is when I took up riding a m/c & by 42 I was into many forms of m/c competition.  I know they worried, but it was part of life for by 48 I was also climbing mountains to also into speed-skating & Amateur Wrestling plus the start of Judo.



Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Doubt if the original poster will be reading this...but... for anyone that does...Alpine Stars is the brand, and dirt riders have no excuse for not using the Neck Brace...Street riders should use it...but...more product development needs to be offering it built into street gear.
