The Leatt STX RR is the first ever neck brace designed specifically for road racing and track day users. Helping prevent avoidable neck injuries has been Leatt’s specialty ever since Dr. Chris Leatt invented the first modern motosports neck brace in 2002. Off road riders and racers have benefited from this invention for years.
The STX RR uses Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT) to drastically reduce the injury causes forces on the neck in a crash. Helps protect from hyper extension, hyper flexion, lateral hyper extension and hyper translation type injuries. Helps stabilize the head/neck in compressive type injuries. The ultra light carbon fiber chassis is so comfortable it will hardly be noticed while riding or racing. Designed to fit on the outside of race leathers, the twin swiveling scapula wings on the back adjust to fit with aero humps and many body shapes. The front of brace folds back to allow for getting in a full tuck yet still fits correctly when riding in more upright positions. Removable rear platform height adjuster allows for a personal fit that gives the necessary protection while allowing optimum helmet range of motion. Additional height adjusters are on the shoulders to accommodate for different rider’s neck length. Straps can be worn to secure the brace, but riders will find that it is not prone to move around on the body much, even at high speed.
Chassis is ultra light 100% carbon fiber, only 700g (1.55 pounds)
Over the head fitting with emergency releases on each side
Race-adopted front construction for tucking behind the windscreen
Hammock style rubber chin pad for increased comfort and safety
Correct side clearance for race cornering
Adjusts to fit all riding suits and selections of armor
CE certified as Personal Protective Equipment 89/686/EEC
One size fits riders from approx. 140 to 225 pounds
Looks solid, hope I never need it
The Leatt brace feels really sturdy. I have zero input on how it actually performs (and hope that doesn't change!), but I do feel a lot safer with this as part of my gear, especially after reading some of the other reviews here. Instructions were pretty good. I got my wife to help me set it up, we spent 10-15 minutes doing test fits w/small adjustments in between.

What is your neck worth?
I purchased this neck brace to race on a GP track. Fit is awesome, quality and construction is outstanding. I forget I have it on it's so comfortable with leathers on. I have Alpine racing leathers and have no problems with the hump. No head movement restrictions. I think anyone who rides and especially races should pony up and invest in a neck brace. I don't ride street much but soon as I can I'm getting the STREET equivalent neck brace.

Leatt STX RR Saved me from major injury
I can say, I tested this product thoroughly. At a recent Cresson Motorcycle Ranch track day, I had a big off on the last lap of the last session of the day and hit my head pretty good on the left front of helmet in a way where this brace had maximum effect.
According to observers and EMT staff, I was unconscious for 5 minutes and for an hour, was really not all there. I was air lifted to a local trauma center with my neck and back immobilized and the EMT's fearing the worst. Because of how I landed, it is very clear to me that the Leatt did it's job perfectly. I had a lot of soreness in my neck and shoulders from the impact, but it could have and would have been much worse without the Leatt.
I know the Leatt transferred much of the helmet impact directly to my shoulders and back because I could literally feel where the Leatt sets on my shoulder and back for a week after the crash.
Not only did I survive the crash, but I was treated and released from the Trauma center in less than 4 hours. When I showed up at the track the next day, people were stunned that I was up and walking around. The track day organizers were sure that I would have sustained more injuries than I did based on the location, velocity and apparent impact of the crash.
Full gear I was wearing that day....

Exellent fitment, quality, and features
I was skeptical about the fit and comfort of this neck brace since there has not been many reviews regarding this brace. However, I do value the safety features that this neck brace offers so I took a chance anyway. I mainly ride the track so this review may not be applicable for road going users.
After initial fitment, the brace fits very well over my 1 piece leathers and you barely notice it's on. Range of motion is good and I do not feel like it hinders my movements once on the bike.
The brace seems very well thought out and well designed. Many adjustments are available for the end user to fine tune the fitment and ensure that it can suit different body types. It is easy to put on and take off as well.
Construction of materials is top notch and the brace is very light and sturdy.
Fortunately, I do not have crash data and hope that I don't anytime soon. But the theories behind the safety features are sound and many auto racing clubs mandate similar neck braces (HANS device).

David M: I wanted to protect my neck and spinal cord from injury and the product appears to be designed to do just that. It is light weight and easy to wear. I don't plan on racing but just street riding and will wear it any time I ride. You can't have enough protection and this is a great product to fend off injury to a very important area of your body.Jan 4, 2014
David B asked:Why is this a single size for a certain weight range when the other models are based on height and chest measurements? Could being under or over the weight range affect fit? What if you're in the range but you have a smaller/larger than average chest measurement? Would I be better off buying the cheaper versions with some track days planned?Sep 20, 2014
Bradley P:I am 6'4" tall and it fit me fine. It is adjustable so you should not have any difficulty with it. I hardly know that I am wearing it (I only wear it on the track). We spend $200+ on gloves and boots so it only makes sense to spend some $ to protect our necks. Good luckSep 23, 2014
Tim S:This is far more adjustable than previous Leatt braces, which I suppose is part of the reason. That said, my head barely fits through the opening, so I wish it were adjustable on that front.
I also have one of the older Leatt braces and it doesn't really work on the track. For one thing, you can't get into a full tuck. The other problem is that, with no bracing, high-speed wind catches in it and it hits against your neck. I wore mine and above about 100 down the straights it was basically choking me. Great on the street, not really for the track.Sep 23, 2014
