Alpinestars_bionic_neck_support_leathers.jpgIt looks like neck braces like the Alpinestars Bionic Neck Support work with leathers. This picture, taken at an Italian supermoto race clearly demonstrates the device’s compatibility with leathers, at least in an upright riding position and using a motocross helmet. Always looking for ways to make riding safer, we’re intrigued by the possibility the new generation of neck braces offers to road riders and would like to see more products geared towards neck protection both off- and on-road. Braces like this work by restricting head movement and absorbing energy in a crash, the Dainese D-Air airbag will offer a similar, if not greater, level of protection, but looks much more complicated and prone to failure.
