For riders who are especially concerned about safety, sometimes motorcycle helmets might not be enough. That’s why Alpinestars has developed the Bionic Neck Support for those who want to take that extra precautionary step.
The Bionic Neck Support fits around the neck and underneath the helmet. According to the company, wearing this protective accessory will greatly reduce the risk of suffering a serious or paralyzing neck injury, although the manufacturer admits that no device can fully guarantee 100 percent safety.
Unlike “neck roll” soft accessories that purport to do the same thing, the manufacturer says that their product won’t crumple or deform in a high-impact collision, greatly increasing its value.
Riders considering purchasing the Bionic Neck Support should also take a look at the Bionic Jacket. This futuristic-looking motorcycle jacket fits perfectly with the aforementioned neck support in both comfort and style. It also provides significant protection of its own, with chest and back plates designed to keep the rider safe from harm. According to the company, the back plates conform to the natural curvature of the spine, preventing overextension.
Although the armored plates may look encumbering, they’re complimented by breathable mesh and biofoam material that allows bikers to feel protected while still riding without issue.
