    Default Leatt Moto R neck restraint

    I have a Leatt Moto R neck restraint. Nice piece and works well in when seated straped in the upright position.

    $200

    Cant figure this out, I need one but how does this work. Does the helmet go outside of the rear brace? Can you show a picture of it with helmet on?

    Very interested in a Hans device of some sort. Can you turn your head?

    The Leatt Brace is a very practical and simple safety device for any type of racing and does not strap your helmet/head down to your shoulders in any way. The Leatt has no connection with the helmet and allows your head to turn full distance in all directions.

    The design is meant to allow movement but keep the helmet from being forced too far forward (towards your chin) or too far backward (away from your chin) that would in essence snap your neck and either kill you or severly injure your spinal cord.

    I used them in MX and I have used the HANS device in auto racing before the Leatt was ever available and I would never use a HANS again after experiencing the simplicity of using a Leatt Brace.

    This site link has all the info you need to understand how it operates.

    The Moto R DOES actually connect to the helmet with tethers like the hans, defender ect. It can be used with out the tethers but isn't advised. Geoff Patterson formerly with Leatt helpped me a lot with these braces when I moved into a capsule boat, however I've since moved onto the Defender neck restraint system.

    Yea I worked with Jeff in getting the LEATT promoted to many local SAC area MX groups. So where did he go now?? Is he with DefNder?

    I still like the basic Leatt design - it has prevented many of the "weighted head helmet issue" severe injuries that were very prevalent with young riders in MX.

    Hi guys.

    Be aware there are (at least) 3 types of the Leatt. One for MX riders, the one Cole is selling (at a great price btw) and one for sitting in a seat unrestrained such as in kart racing or boats!
    For those in open deck boats the kart type is really well worth having a look at. They have several adjustments for a personal fit & as stated in a previous post very simple to use.
    Your neck will thank you for it...
    Mediocrity is NOT an option...
