I have used Atlas products for a few years now and I am a firm believer that their equipment saved me from some serious injuries.
The sport of Motocross is no doubt one of the most dangerous sports in the world.
The speeds, the obstacles, physical dynamics, etc., all play a critical role in what makes this sport one of the most dangerous and the most EXCITING.
Along with it, sometimes come injuries. It is inevitable that at some point you are going to crash while riding, no matter what your skill level is. The better protected you are, the less likely you are to sustain a serious injury. At least in theory.
Still, injuries happen. The best thing you can do is protect yourself using the most technologically advanced equipment.
We Get Faster, We Wear Less.
I'm not quite sure why this is, but it seems like when people start out in the sport of motocross, they are wearing so much gear, they look like an armadillo mascot for some college in Texas.
Ironically as we become better, faster riders, we tend to start shedding the gear and wear less and less, trading safety for comfort.
This seems to be kind of a backwards mentality, but it is the norm in this sport.
The thing is, you don't have to trade safety for comfort at all. You just have to chose the right equipment.
Why Atlas Brace?
There are other companies out there that produce neck braces, but I found that Atlas lead the pack in a few areas.
Comfort & Design: The Atlas brace is very comfortable and lightweight. The rear of the brace has two pads that sit on either side of the spine and they will move independently from each other.
The front of the brace has the same type of technology, with two different pads that sit on your chest (Pec muscles) and disperse energy in the event of impact.
The brace sits on top of the trapezius muscles and arches over the collarbone.
Technology: Atlas Brace is on the forefront of neck brace technology and they continue to test and make improvements on their products.
The overall design of the Atlas Brace keeps pressure off your sternum, spine, and collarbones and puts impact energy on larger muscles of the body.
