Engineered to help prevent neck injury and minimize the risk of
collateral damage, the Bionic Neck Support (BNS) Tech Carbon is
constructed from an advanced carbon polymer for optimized frame strength
and lightweight performance. The BNS Tech Carbon functions when the
riders helmet makes contact with the frame at the moment of a crash,
thus providing a clean, solid surface which instantly channels damaging,
compressive impact energy away from the neck and on to the BNS.
Featuring a host of award-winning design innovations, such as a quick
release locking system and a rear stabilizer offering critical
protection to the spine, the BNS Tech affords a highly customizable,
secure and comfortable fit for all forms of off-road riding.
The BNS Tech is constructed from an advanced, high-performance
carbon polymer compound to offer optimized structural integrity and
frame strength. BNS Tech provides heavy impact energy diversion
capabilities in the event of a crash.
Crucial weight-savings: BNS Tech is 40% lighter than current neck brace versions. The XS/S/M weighs 735 grams.
Extreme temperature resilience: BNS Tech performs at temperatures as low as -4°F (-20°C).
Frame Construction: Evolution of BNS shaping to promote
improved contact with helmet during impact - including rear support
edge that fits closer to the body, extra width to account for different
helmet sizes and raised chest to avoid hyper-flexion injuries.
Quick-release locking: innovative auto-locking
BNS closure system for rapid and efficient fitting/removal, which offers
highly secure and convenient attachment which can also be quickly
opened in case of emergency.
Pivot Key: New ergonomically designed pivot key located at the rear on BNS allows for convenient dismantling.
Padding system: All parts in contact
with the body use a compressed EVA foam compound to distribute the
impact force over the widest area, yet remain lightweight. A main frame
member runs over the shoulders and eliminates weak points in a critical
part of the frame to ensure the most efficient load transfer. This
minimizes risk of injury and well as offering excellent levels of
The Bionic Neck Support (BNS) is an advanced protection device for
use primarily in MX and off-road riding. It functions by diverting the
impact energies that compress the neck in the event of a crash. When the
helmet is in contact with the BNS at the moment of impact the overall
load passing through the neck can be reduced, which may prevent a
fracture or muscular injuries. The BNS is designed to help prevent
catastrophic neck injury and minimize the risk of collateral damage as
the impact load is channeled away from the neck.
Strap System: BNS supplied with the X-Strap System which
allows a small, light strap worn over or under the jersey to secure the
device to the rider.
The BNS Tech incorporates a bio-organic engineering design for superb anatomical performance.
Rear Stabilizer: developed to promote PFR (progressive
force relief) and dissipate extreme energy loads by transmitting them
across the back and shoulders.
Stabilizer pads are designed to transfer impact stress loads away from spine (thoracic vertebrae).
FIT AND CUSTOMIZATION
Correct fitment is critical to ensuring the most effective
protection possible and riders should choose the equipment that is best
suited to their body.
The BNS Tech is designed to provide a highly customizable, secure and personalized fit.
SAS (size adapter system) provides adjustable and versatile BNS fitment in size ranges XS-M and L-XL.
Lycra-laminated foam padding kits: adaptable and
interchangeable EVA foam pads (6mm and 10mm) for rear, front and
shoulders allow fine-tuning adjustment of BNS to rider's specific needs.
It also aids compatibility with other body protection systems.
