      The Bionic Neck Support SB or "Special Blend" is Alpinestars answer for riders who want exceptional neck protection without a premium price. The SB still holds construction at a paramount with polyurethane materials strong enough to absorb life threatening impacts, even at temperatures where other materials become brittle and fail. When an impact is absorbed, the SB works by limiting the amount of deflection and compression your neck sustains and diverting that energy through the brace assembly and out along an alternate load path. It may sound complex, but by diverting that energy, impacts can be managed that would typically result in broken bones and serious injury. Alpinestars has even more features for your safety and comfort like the patented pivot key system, fitting system, multiple collar bone preservation systems, and the carbon composite frame all working to keep you safe.

    • Patented Pivot Key System located at the rear allows convenient front opening of the devise while also allowing it to be dismantled in an emergency
    • Patented Fitting System allows fine adjustment shoulder height for a personalized fit
    • Patented Rear Stabilizer Failure System features deliberate bending and facture points designed to relieve extreme loads that may be transmitted down the back during an impact
    • Collar Bone Preservation 1: All parts in contact with the body use an expanded foam compound to distribute the impact force over the widest area while remaining lightweight
    • Collar Bone Preservation 2: A continuous frame member runs over the shoulders, leaving no weak points in a critical part of the frame, and no metal pins or screws above the shoulder which could be dislodged into the shoulders or collar bone during an accident
    • Choice of Strap System: The Bionic Neck Support is supplied with the new X-Strap System which allows a smaller, lighter strap (worn over or under the jersey) to secure the device to the rider. The larger A Strap assembly (sold separately) provides a traditional chest strap for those who like to wear the protector tight to the body.
    • Carbon Composite frame to achieve the best stiffness with the lowest weight.

      XX-Small Chest Circumference...24.5" - 28"
      X-Small Chest Circumference....28.3" - 31"

    I am just over 6ft tall and weigh about 173 pounds, average build, and went with the medium. Most reviews on here concerning size are saying that medium is too loose on them, and they are the same size as me. After buying my A-star bns, I immediately bought the A-STRAP, which doesnt come with the brace. This made my previously slightly loose medium fit PERFECTLY. So if you are my size and get the medium and it is slightly loose, dont send it back for a small like everyone else here, it will not fit right! spend the 35 bucks and get the A-strap, it will make the fitment perfect as it pulls the articulating spine piece into your back as you pull the strap snug. Great product for the money, much sleeker and low profile than the Leatt, not to mention cheaper. Would definitely recommend to a friend. Hope this helps!

    It Saved My Life
    I went off a jump at Budds Creek and I fell and got hit by 2 riders and I went to the doctors and the doctors said if you were not wearing that neck brace we could be looking at a horrible injury or you could've died!

    I trust it
    I bought this and it seemed a little cheap but it is very strong. But the first time I rode with the brace I had a bad crash and im convinced that it helped.

    Excellent neck brace
    As far as the comfort goes, this brace is excellent. The first time I wore it I had never worn a neck brace. After the first lap I forgot I was wearing it. May all of us never need to test their performance.

    Neck Support
    Seems well made, looks good. No problems with fitment. After a few rides with it, you really don't know its there. Definitely want to order the other strap, the one it comes with is pretty worth less.

    Neck Support
    This neck support seems to be built well and looks very nice. However, it is a little heavy in the hand, but isn't very noticeable when you wear it. I would recommend buying the A-straps if you are looking for comfort as well as functionality. When ordering this product know that the sizes run big if you are a skinny guy/gal. When you first open the package though it was kind of disappointing because the black part that goes above the neck looks really, for lack of a better term, plasticy but a simple solution of stickers will fix that as well as give it a custom look to it. Great product that can save your life, highly recommend this item!

    It seemed to run big. I just made large on the size chart but really needed a medium. DEFINITELY buy the straps!!! The straps it comes with are no thicker then shoelaces. All plastic. cleans well. Not uncomfortable in the least.

    Not so much
    I bought this for my son because it got good reviews and was a little cheaper than the Leatt. It didn't fit and the construction was pretty cheap compared to my Leatt brace. I sent it back and ordered him a Leatt as well. In my opinion, there is no comparison. The Leatt is expensive...but you know the saying.
