Alpinestars Youth Neck Support Collar

Alpinestars Youth Neck Support Collar has been designed and developed for the   youth or smaller framed rider/karter.

The Youth Neck Support functions when the helmet and support frame provide an alternative load path for the excessive energy that compresses the neck.

If the helmet is in contact with the neck support at the moment of impact the overall load passing through the neck can be reduced, which may prevent a fracture from occurring and reduce the chance of muscular injuries from extreme head movement.

The frame has been constructed from an ultra-lightweight EVA foam on the support’s underside for comfort and positioning and this helps distribute the impact force across the widest possible area.

The injected polymer compound that has been extensively impact tested at performance on a range of off-road surface and varying temperatures.

A rear stabilizer system helps keeps support in position and is also designed to channel extreme energy loads away from the spine by transmitting it across the shoulder thus helping to avoid serious spinal injury.

This new neck collar from Alpinestars has been designed and developed for a fit that is specific to a youths’ anatomy.

Alpinestars Youth Neck Support Collar Features:

• Anatomical profile promotes positive helmet contact in event of a crash whilst still allowing rider freedom of movement.
• A new closure system for convenient engagement of support and to facilitate quick removal in case of emergency.

NB: Although it is not possible to eliminate the risk of any form of injury, the support has been proven to help reduce the most serious damage and minimize the risk of collateral injury as the impact load is channelled away from the neck.
