Alpinestars Youth Neck Karting Support
The Alpinestars Youth Neck Karting Support is designed specifically for young drivers and supports the helmet to help prevent neck compression injuries during an accident. The injected polymer frame has been extensively impact tested to help create an alternative load path for impact energy. If the helmet is in contact with the neck support at the moment of impact the overall load passing through the neck can be reduced, which may prevent a fracture from occurring and reduce the chance of muscular injuries from extreme head movement. Although it is not possible to eliminate the risk of any form of injury, the support has been proven to help reduce and minimize the risk of collateral injury as the impact load is channeled away from the neck. The two piece support is easy to take on and off with an easy to use closure system. An additional strap system helps further secure the device and can be worn under or over the kart suit.
