    New benchmark for neck protection.

    Leatt knows how to prevent catastrophic neck injuries, and the DBX 5.5 is one of the best ways to keep your spine intact when you have a wreck. The DBX series is the benchmark in comfortable, effective neck protection, and the DBX 5.5 offers more adjustability than the rest of the series.

    The main focus of the DBX brace is to reduce over-extension injuries by limiting the range of motion in your neck. It uses a fiberglass-reinforced polyamide chassis to block any further motion after your helmet has bottomed out. The DBX 5.5 does this without inhibiting the range of motion you need to look down the trail and sight your landings, otherwise it’d be worthless.

    Your ability to fine-tune the DBX 5.5 starts with the adjustable opening that allows for a large range of body types. The shoulder pads let you raise or lower the brace according to your neck length. Its adjustable aft wing is vital for riders who ride with a flattened back versus a more upright posture. The rear thoracic brace is featured on all DBX braces, but the 5.5 uses a brand new split brace that’s adjustable to one of four angle settings. This increases comfort and it’s designed to snap off before it places excess pressure on the spine. When it snaps, the brace dissipates the majority of force to keep your spine intact—similar in function to EPS foam helmet protection.

    Lowered side wings on the DBX 5.5 enhance lateral freedom, which is important for smaller riders or those with shorter necks. Working with the variable height shoulder pads, you can tailor the fit to nearly any body shape.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The leatt DBX 5.5 has saved my life numerous times. Its the one piece of equipment I cant justify riding without. I do recommend trying a few on because sizing is a little tricky and there are a few parts that you can change out to adjust the size to better fit you. After looking at the sizing chart and trying a few on I ended up going a little smaller then what the chart showed

    Simply the best!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been a fan of Leatt braces for years and have worn the DBX for as long as I can remember. The old design was excellent but I always had issues with the fit not being perfect. That has all changed with this one. The lower profile makes helmet clearance a non issue and the adjustments are much improved. My kid wouldn't wear the old style but he wont take this one off. He doesn't even know it is on him.

    So do they work? I have had two friends crash head first while wearing Leatts and they both walked away with nothing more than a scratched helmet. So I would say yeah they work. Bottom line is buy one of these. There is no reason not to.
