The Alpinestars Bionic Neck Support is designed to work with a helmet to reduce the risk and severity of a catastrophic neck injury. It functions by providing an alternative load path for the energy that compresses the neck. It also helps to reduce the chance of muscular injuries associated with extremes of head movement. Key features include a pivot key system that allows the convenient front opening of the device while also allowing it to be dismantled in an emergency; a fine adjustment fitting system, a rear stabilizer failure system, and a carbon composite frame. Features: - Rear Stabilizer Failure System - In the event of large loads being channeled onto the rear stabilizer (the part that sits on the back) there are several deliberate bending and fracture points designed to relieve extreme loads that may be transmitted down the back. These include: deflection of foam tail, grooves to allow deflection of support structure tip and fracture area of support structure tip. Fracture of supporting members (also fracture if subjected to side loads that could cause the head to rotate). -Collar Bone Preservation 1 - All parts in contact with the body use an expanded foam compound to distribute the impact force over the widest area, yet remain 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 frame and that there are no metal pins or screws sitting directly above the shoulders which could be dislodged into the shoulders or collarbone during an accident. -Choice of Strap Systems - The BNS is supplied with the X-Strap System which allows a small, light strap (worn over or under the jersey) to secure the device to the rider. The larger A-Strap assembly (av
