    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Atlas Crank Neck Brace + Leatt Adventure Lite Chest Protector - Anyone?

    Hi there, how´re you guys doing?

    Our team, 32 Spokes MTB México » 32Spokes MTB Mex Racing Team

    has been sponsored by Atlas Brace for this 2014, but we are still in search for chest/back protectors. Our intention was to get the Leatt Body Adventure Lite Vest, now we are unsure if it will fit fine while wearing an Atlas neck brace.

    Does anyone wear the Atlas Crank with any sort of body Armor? Can you tell us your experiences?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would think it would be a good idea to find a chest/back protector from a company that is not in direct competition on neck braces with your sponsor.
    I think that is just respectful of the sponsor.

    Well the sponsor will at some point of 2014 offer an MX vest which is not precisely suitable for Downhill. Can be used but we would want more back coverage.

    We need the protectors, the health of the riders is more important than just appearing respectful, and ANY brand of chest protector would be a competitor, therefore there is an impasse. Anyway thanks for your 2cents.

    not so true as only a few companies make neck braces. Lots of companies make body armor.

    Atlas is about to roll out body armor this year, but for MX.

    In any case...
    does anyone have useful information about compatibility of the Atlas braces with other body armor brands?
