Leatt sets the industry standard for neck braces. The Leatt GPX 4.5 Neck Brace may be the entry level model brace, but it retains all the protective features of its higher end brother, the 5.5. Differences are in materials and fitting systems. A few key features of the GPX 4.5 are the collar bone cut out sections, snap off thoracic strut, and bio mechanical adjustability for individual fit and comfort. Make a wise choice and choose a Leatt neck brace the days you know the riding will be risky.
Leatts home of research and development is located in Cape Town, South Africa. It is here that a team of engineers and designers, as well as Dr. Leatt himself, dream-up and test new products as well as persistently improving products already in their line even further.

I got this for riding Angel Fire. Luckily I haven't tested the safety features, so I can't really comment on that other than to say it feels solid and that it should protect my neck if I manage to torpedo myself into the ground. I am right between the two sizes and went with the large/x-large and it has worked well. There is a ton of flexibility in the fit and though it tok a bit to get it set up, once I had it fitted correctly, it basically disappears while riding. I only notice it right after getting on the bike at the top of the lift, then it is gone. Without my helmet on, I often forget I am wearing it, so basically never take off throughout the day. If your worried about injuring your neck I say get one.
4 stars because it is the easiest to adjust and is heavier than some. But I've had no issues.
