PRO GuIDe GPX 3.5 moto neck brace from Leatt Cape Town, South Africa based Leatt - inventors of the Leatt Brace - first announced its new Leatt GPX 3.5 neck brace at the end of last year. The company now says that the award-winning design, including the Junior version, is now available worldwide. The lightest neck brace in the Leatt range, the 3.5 is over 30% lighter than the existing 5.5 model, and features a unique combination of in-moulded EPS construction with a polyamide core, similar to that found in high-performance helmets. The 5.5 and 6.5 Leatt neck brace mo dels offer a more custom fit than the 3.5. However, the semi-rigid chassis is still adjustable to fit most riders’ body shapes. Like all previous Leatt neck brace models, the GPX 3.5 is CE certified as Personal Protective Equipment and has been lab-tested and proven to reduce neck forces, thereby said to lower the chances of a serious neck injury by up to 47%.
