I purchased this mouth guard because originally I had purchased the Shock Doctor Gel Max however I found it difficult to breath using the upper guard and I think I shouldn't have boiled it twice, thinking I could get a better fit with a second fitting. The Gel Max seemed to be a bit hard and tight on my upper teeth and the discomfort made me avoid wearing it.
So I decided to try the Gravity 2 STC which fits on your lower teeth and I've gotta say it works way better. So far I've used it like half a dozen times in a row and am becoming used to wearing it all the time. I bought the one with the leash attached to it so I could let it hang when I am spent (as I use it for both MX and BMX).
I gave it four stars only because I wish there was an easy way to detach the guard from it's leash (not featured in this model) for cleaning, storage, etc.
The Gravity 2 STC seems to be less bulky and allows my lower jaw to hang open while I ride when I need extra oxygen. It makes talking a bit awkward but that's to be expected.
Overall I think this guard may be a little less protective than the upper teeth guard designs but it is a win/win for those needing some protection without obstructing your breathing.
I like this guard a lot but I think boiling and fitting it once, right the first time helped in my case.
This has to be the WORST piece of junk I have ever purchased, the fit is HORRIBLE, tried to fit it 5 times.... what a waste... package says the size is ADULT 11+, There is NO WAY it fits in my teeth for protection, way too small, for 18.00 bucks I would have been better off buying a tub of Bazooka Bubble gum, at least that would have made for a better fit.
