Moto cross collar for adults and children
The motocross collar, also called neck brace, is becoming an increasingly used accessory even among amateurs and professional riders. Unfortunately, cross neck protectors cannot guarantee 100% injury prevention, but they can be very useful in reducing injuries due to accidents. Obviously the main function of the motocross collar is to protect and support the neck and cervical area, but there are several models that perform this function in a slightly different way. Some, in fact, limit themselves to protecting against damage due to an impact, also limiting the unnatural movements that the neck could have during an accident. More advanced types are a step forward, offering support and protection even to the chest and shoulders.
The neck support is essential to limit the movements of the cross helmet in the event of an accident, preventing hyperflexion and hyperextension of the cervical muscles. In the event that the motorcyclist suffers a blow to the head, the helmet carries the force of the impact to the cervical support, which directs it to the shoulders and chest, saving the neck from a pressure it could not handle, and this is the reason why the motocross neck brace is very important.
A bit like it happens with the other elements of your equipment, even for motocross collars it is impossible to protect you from any type of impact (given the infinite possibilities of angles and dynamics that a collision can have). It follows that, even if only to significantly lower the chances of a serious injury, wearing a cross collar can only be considered a sensible idea! Among the best on the market we find the motocross collars of companies such as Alpinestars and Leatt
