Alpinestars_Bionic_Neck_Support_SB.jpgWant to add the protection offered by the $680 Alpinestars Bionic Neck Support or similar devices, but been put off by the high price? The Alpinestars Bionic Neck Support SB ditches the pricey carbon construction for a cheaper, heavier plastic design that helps bring the price down to just $290. Like the more expensive alternative, the SB works by controlling the amount of flex and compression your neck experiences during an impact. Like a helmet, it breaks so your bones don’t, which makes the lower price look doubly good.

    There should be a real effort to get the price of this protection down below $100. They should be mandatory for Motocross racing.

      once they get popular they will.oh and more comfortable and less of an eye sore they will be good for the street

    I’m seriously considering something like this for my motard adventures on and off the street. ATGATT!

    maybe someone will figure out how to integrate something like this(although in a slim down version) in a jacket..the neck area is one of most prone to serious accidents and unless you wear a neck brace is totally unprotected.suits with a lot of padding and the new gen of gloves that protect the wrist are all fine but a broken wrist is one thing..spending the rest of your(hopefully short) life paralised from the neck down is a faith worse than death

    Check out the 661 Droid. It’s a chest protector/neck brace combo, very sick. But I think I will be going with the A-stars one!
