Features: -Both the Carbon Bionic Neck Support (BNS) and the bionic neck support are designed to work with any helmet to reduce the risk and severity of catastrophic neck injury (i.e a paralying injury) -While no product can guarantee protection from all motorcycle injuries, due to the varied dynamics of accidents, the BNS is designed to substantially reduce the likelihood of a serious neck injury, although it must be stated that the BNS, as with other such systems , may not prevent injury from occuring in all cases -Function while providing an alternate load path for the energy that compresses the neck -If the helmet is in cintact with BNS at the moment of impact, the overall load passing through the neck can be reduced ehich may prevent fracture from occuring -Also helps reduce the chance of muscular injuries associated with extremes of head movement -While it is not possible to eliminate the risk of any form of injury, the BNS is designed to help prevent the most serious damage and minimize the risk of collateral injury as the impact load is channeled away from the neck -When compared to soft neck roll devices, the protection provided is significantly better because being soft, these devices simply deform, offering no protection against damaging compressive forces -Fit is critical to ensure the most effective protection possible ; riders should choose the equipment size best suited for their body; the BNS or BIO SB should not roll around over the shoulders -Pivot key system: A special magnesium key located at the rear allows the convienient front opening of the device and allows for quick dismantling in an emergency -Fitting system A fine adjstment of shoulder height allows a more personal fit, particulary for individuals with shorter than normal neck -Rear stabilizer failure system in the event if large loads being channeled onto the rear stabilizer (the part that sits on the back) There are a number of deliberate bending and fracture points desinged to relieve extreme loads that may be tranferred down the back -These include: deflection of the foam tail (grooves to allow deflection of support structure tip), fracture area of support structure tip, fracture of supporting members(also fracture if subject to side loads that could cause s large rotation to the head -Collar bone preservation: all parts in contact with the body use an expanded foam compound to distribute the impact over the widest possible area, yet still being light in weight -Collar bone preservation 2 : A continuous frame member runs over the shoulders- this means there are no weak points in a critical part of the BNS foam and that there are no metal pins or screws sitting directly above the shoulders that could come dislodged into the shoulders or collar bone during an accident -Supplied with the X-Strap system which allows a small, light strap (worn over the jersey) to secure the device to the rider -Carbon BNS includes carry bag, Bio SB does not include carry bag -A Special blend of reinforced polyurethane main frame construction for a high strngth yet forgiving design that transfers high impact loads efficiently -Weighs approx 970 grams
