Hi all,

Please this is not a neck brace question of pros and cons... there s enough on here already.

Long story short, I have been asked to race on Sunday as part of a team. I have never raced before. To make matters worse, I m rookie. I have been riding for a bout a year on a crf250r.
Tomorrow, I m on vintage and been given a 1989rm250.
I m pumped. It s all about having fun and giving it a go no?

My wife, said that she is not happy for me to race without a neck brace, so I am off to buy one.

My question, is that I already have Alpinestars A10 armour. Apart from the obvious alpine start BNS can someone recommend another brand that will Epcot and work well with the A10 armour just in case I can not get hold of a bns neck brace..

Thanks in advance.

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

Thanks for the reply.

I live in Australia mate so a bit far and I needed it for tomorrow.

Ended up getting a Leatt 4.5.
Actually fits quite well Stanmore and Sandy Creek Rdsit’s the a10. I simply put it under the a10. I will get eventually a leatt 4.5 body armour as no comparaison between the two body protector, the leatt neck definitely works best with a leatt body, but the a10 will do for another couple of months.

I am really pumped about racing tomorrow. First race ever, let alone on a vintage bike....

I've had both and the A-10 is, in my opinion, much better than the Leatt 4.5 - especially when it comes to ventilation. I'd stick with the A-10. The A-10 is what I currently use.

I would be interested if the offer is still on the table. I have a S/M AStar that I've grown out of.
