General Sizing Information
The Atlas Brace™ sizing is based on Chest Circumference (distance around the chest, measured high on the chest, just under the arms)
Optimal brace fitment is achieved by selecting the correct rear mount offset, and opting to use (or not use) the optional shoulder padding for height adjustment that suits your body and range-of-motion of your head/neck, as described in the Atlas Brace™ user manual.
While fitting a brace, there are 2 key steps to follow for length and height adjustment:
1 - While standing straight up, the brace should fit snug on your chest and back, and the shoulder padding should be resting on your body. If the shoulder padding does not rest flush on the body, there will be a gap between the shoulder padding and the body. This shows the brace is too tight on the chest and the larger offset rear mounts supplied in the box should be used, this will add length to the brace to create a better fit, allowing the shoulder padding to rest on the body as it should.
2 - Once the brace is properly fitted for your chest size, determine which height setting is right for your individual body type and neck length so that you will have proper range-of-motion before starting activity. Put on a helmet to determine which setting is right for you, and if you do not feel your range-of-motion is sufficient, remove the optional shoulder padding from your Atlas Brace™ by pulling down on the outer edge of the bottom shoulder pad. The padding will simply “pop” out of the top shoulder pad. Repeat for the opposite side. Make sure the brace still fits snug on the body, and the shoulder padding is resting on your shoulders.
Additional parts are also sold separately if needed. If the brace is to tight to fit on over head comfortably, you may wish to purchase the “Wide Body Kit” which is a spacer that adds width to the brace, making it a more comfortable fit for bigger individuals. Each brace comes with 2 different size offsets of rear mounts to adjust for chest size, but a total of 4 sizes are available. The smallest is -2, followed by 0, followed by +3, and the biggest offset available is +8. Each mount is stamped with sizing info for reference
