: Evs vs leatt neck brace
: Goatie September 30, 2013, 10:26:31 PM
Having used neither I am after input from anyone out there about the pros and cons of the evs vs leatt neck braces.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

My opinion, forget the EVS altogether. Rubbish. I wore a leatt for 2 years, hated how much it restricted movement but continued to wear it. Stopped riding for a while. Started riding again and didn't wear it. Realized how much more movement I had without it and it was like a breath of fresh air. Sold it on eBay a week later. My experience.

I use a Mike Day Leatt brace without any restriction in normal movememt.

I would recommend getting the DBX model as its designed for things like BMX with a fraction lower base.

Also do yourself a favour & get the adjustable version with front & back panels that can be raised or lowered to increase or decrease head movement.

That way you can tune it to exactly suit you.
