Alpinestars Bionic Neck Support - Details
PATENTED FITTING SYSTEM: Fine adjustment of the shoulder height allows a more personalized fit particularly for individuals who have a shorter than normal neck.
PATENTED REAR STABILIZER FAILURE SYSTEM: In the event of large loads being channeled onto the rear stabilizer (the part that sits on the back). There are a number of deliberate bending and fracture points designed to relieve extreme loads that may be transmitted down the back. These include:
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 yet remain light in weight.
- Deflection of foam tail
- Grooves to allow deflection of support structure tip
- Fracture area of support structure tip
- Fracture of supporting members (also fracture if subject to side loads that could cause a large rotation to the head)
COLLAR BONE PRESERVATION 2: A continuous frame member runs over the shoulders; this means there are no weak points in a critical part of the frame, and that there are no metal pins or screws sitting directly above the shoulders which could be dislodged into the shoulders or collarbone during an accident.
CHOICE OF STRAP SYSTEMS: The Bionic Neck Support is supplied with the new XStrap 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 (available in future as a separate accessory) provides a traditional chest strap for those who like to wear the protector tight to the body.
CARBON COMPOSITE FRAME: Achieves the best stiffness with the lowest weight.
MOUNTING POINTS FOR ACCESSORIES: Assist the integration of the Bionic Neck Support with your own Alpinestars accessories.
