Expensive for what it is. No directions or example pictures. Took a few minutes to figure out how to mount the straps correctly .
The old style has 3 mounting points and this strap has 4 tethers. It will work with the older style if you run both rear straps to the middle. It's not ideal but it works.
Perfect for Alpinestars neck brace. Would ride up and make it difficult to lookdown. (Not good while in jumps!) Now my brace is kept tight to my chest and head movement is no problem.
I use this setup & It sits over/under my Thor chest protector although the 2 work well together it can move around & get uncomfortable when using the 2 straps it comes with so the harness is my solution but I'ma smaller guy so idk how well a bigger person can do using the same equipment.. I think it wld wrk as well or possibly better but dnt go by my assumption ask around or find someone with this setup and try it 1st
I don't like the Bionic brace anyway but if you have one then you need this strap setup it works very well it's just kind of a pain to take on and off
This lasted about 3 races, then the button came off the strap, works well when the equipment does not fail.....
This strap should have been provided with the brace, but I'm glad it is offered in general. It really secures the brace and is comfortable. It doesn't come with instructions so look at the first pages of the book supplied with the brace.
the a-strap system was a good buy. Pricey, has alot of adjustment and holds the neck support in place. First ride i forgot i even had it on. i think its way better than the xstrap. seems like the strap will be durable the snap on buttons may wear out though. I wear a front and back roost guard to help protect the straps, which i wear over my jersey. i think the astrap is 100% better than the xstrap
I was one of those customers that when I bought my brace was a little dissapointed that it did not come with the A-strap. After using the X-strap and then purchasing the A-strap, it did not hold the brace how I thought it should have and was less comfortable than the X-strap. I can see why lots of people use it, however I did not like it.
