I think that's why I did not break my neck man. Had I been a stick boy, I would have been hurt bad. then again, those lighter guys don't land as hard as us plump guys do Looking back at this it seems like I am really trying to convince you like LD pointed out. All I'm saying is it seems to me that these braces are braking collar bones like crazy. But like I said, a broken collar bone is 10 times better then a broken neck. IMO, the brace is well worth it. Hope they can somehow make it better.

The same could also be said of knee braces. Many folks who wear CTI2's have complained that they broke their tib/fib with the brace on. So you could say that the CTI2 causes tib/fib breaks, the same as the Leatt causes collarbone breaks.

It is the crash and subsequent impact that breaks things. If you hammer your shoulder with or without the Leatt, there is a probability that you will break a collarbone regardless. I don't have an opinion one way or the other.

Just because you have seen several broken collarbones on folks, who just happen to be wearing a brace, doesn't establish any causal relationship between the Leatt and said collarbone. I have seen tons of collarbone breaks in my 23 years of racing and I am seeing no more now with the invention of the neck brace. It just so happens that everyone wears one now.

If fitted properly, the Leatt doesn't sit on your collarbone at all. Mine rests across my shoulder and on my sternum and back. The same place that the Alpinestar and EVS rests.

Wonder where that kind of force would go if it didn't go to the brace.....?

If you toss it, make sure that no one else can use it.I take a chainsaw to my helmets when I throw them out.

Glad you found it now Char, better than finding it after a serious crash.
