I was beyond stoked when this package arrived on my doorstep last week and a brand new Alpinestars Carbon BNS system was in the box! This is an invaluable piece of equipment that I wear every day I go snowmobiling and DH Biking. You can’t put a price on the health of your C-Spine and surrounding soft-tissue. Since I started wearing this brace a year ago, I no longer suffer whiplash or “huck-neck” while doing drops. I feel naked without it, and it still offers amazing protection while not compromising range of motion or vision. It is incredibly comfortable to wear as well which was why I initially chose this brace over other competitors. If it’s not comfortable you are less likely to use it ever day you go out riding, or you might be sacrificing performance riding. This is definitely not the case.
Here are two POV Videos of me doing sizeable drops with and without the neck brace. The evidence does not lie, and the benefits of the Alpinestars BNS system are quite obvious. The drop I wasn’t wearing the brace I suffered a soft tissue whiplash injury in my neck and spent the next two weeks in pain, extremely stiff and barely able to move my neck.
