There is currently no other neck protection system available for motorcyclists that can effectively help prevent all neck, head, and upper spine injuries. The design rationale behind the Fly Racing Zenith is to bring the head to a controlled stop. This is achieved by providing a padded rigid structure that acts as an alternative load path for neck forces. Helmet impacts otherwise transmitted from the helmet to skull and then to the neck are re-directed from the helmet to the brace to other body structures in a safe way.
The design of the Zenith Brace prevents the helmet / head from projecting over the brace and therefore prevents a fulcrum action, which has been documented in literature pertaining to the use of collar devices. The Fly Racing Zenith Brace works with most types of body armor and chest protectors. It is also suitable for use by Superbike riders. Over long distances, the Zenith Brace will also offer some relief from neck fatigue. Only leathers with a hump require minor modification. The replacement strap kit will accommodate different riding positions.
The Fly Racing Zenith Brace is compatible with all motorcycle helmet types and FLY Racing's design allows riders an adequate range of movement. The Zenith brace is designed for use on all motorcycles and ATVs for competition use, recreational riding and daily commuting.
