I am new to the MX word and my son loves the sport, but we were slow in getting him PPE (personal protective equipment), my wife insisted on a neck brace if my son wanted to continue the sport. Load and behold we bought this one and would'nt you know it, he had his worse spill this year... BUT Thank goodness he had his gear to protect him. Two flips and and slam later, only marks on the neckbrace and being sore resulted from the incident. Thank you motosport for offering this product so inexpensively than other companies.
