Strength:

Does its job.
Cool magnet locking system.
Wears comfortably.

Weakness:

Range of movement is limited when looking directly behind me. But range of movement is fine for everything else.

Aside from basic get offs, I've had one particular crash at speed that was substantial. (Bucked - nose wheelie - otb straight to chest, crumpled and ended up on my back.) Had I not been wearing my neck support, I would have had some big medical bills to deal with.

It's comfortable to wear, I have a TLD D3 and a Scorpion DOT helmet Both helmets have enough clearance so that I can look up while in my riding position and not have the neck support limit my range of movement.
My only limit is while looking backward when riding, (while coaching) I don't have full range of movement in that way, but aside from coaching, most people don't need to look directly behind them.

Sizing pieces are included to get the fit right.
Straps are included for a snug fit.
The pull in front to open the neck support is an easy system, and can be opened very quickly.

Strength:

Looks good, fits well, works with My troy lee d2, well seems to, no real restrictions

Weakness:

the stock strap is shocking, get the a strap with it, size guides arent right (check bottom line)

Seems like a good brace, not too much clearence, not enough to restrict vision, dont listen to the size guides, i was written in at a medium/large with a normal 104cm chest, i bought a medium because i could get a medium for £150 however it has got about an inch clearence at the chest plate (fits with straps)

Buy it but get the A strap!!!!!
