    neck brace q's

    what is the big difference between a mx neck brace or a dh one? I do alot of dirtbiking and was woundering if i could just get a mx one for dh and have it do just as good or better than a dh one. is this ok? or is it kinda like the whole mx helmet thing compared to a dh helmet?

    I see guys using both. I think the dbx allows more movement up and down. Either way you go, you'll be fine.

    For awhile, they didn't have a bike-specific Leatt brace. I bought a MX one at that time, and it works fine for biking. I have the original version of this one. Mx | LeattŪ - Engineered for Performance. Protective Sports Gear

    Perhaps a motorcycle shop near you carries them?

    If your looking to save money ( protection usually isn't the place to do it but) I bought a EVS neck brace ment for mx I've worn the leatts and didn't like them that much heavy and restricting. But the one I bought EVS r4 was only $100 and I love it rode it twice nice and hard rides and crashed once and felt it work but that's the only time I felt it. Very tough looking and dosnt restrict movement at all. Only problem is theeres only adult and kid sizing. I bought adult I'm 14 but the and the thing fits me fine. Just another option if you don't go with leatt or A*.
