More About NecksGen

NecksGen continues to lead in the advancement of neck protection and bring to the racing community the next generation of head and neck restraints.

The NecksGen REV model takes comfort, fitment and helmet clearance to a new level. With simplicity and ergonomics leading the design flow, the new REV design has no need for a frontal yoke. With no yoke, there is no frontal interference with the helmet and no chance of the device causing any injury to the chest or collar bone. The backbone of the product is the patent pending Tension Neutralizing Tether (TNT). This proprietary design allows for maximum range of head motion with superior frontal and side impact protection. The low profile design encapsulates the sliding TNT tether and allows for minimal rear interference with the helmet and the device.

Weighing in at just over a pound, this low profile design makes egress in and out of the car in an emergency easier. The NecksGen REV unit offers exceptional comfort due the placement of the device on the large trapezoid muscle on the rear of the shoulder with a cutout around the spinal section of the driver. A padded section over the collar bone adds to this comfort and minimizes pressure from the seat belt.

NecksGen REV is available in three sizes: large, medium and small to cover the range of drivers. NecksGen REV uses the quick release helmet attachment system proprietary on all NecksGen products. Surpassing our expectations in SFI 38.1 testing, NecksGen feels that they have achieved the ultimate goal of making the safest, smallest and most comfortable neck brace available. NecksGen is made from a carbon composite material and with pride in the USA.

Features:

  • SFI 38.1 Approved
  • 3 Sizes (Large, Medium & Youth)
  • Lightweight Carbon Composite Material
  • No yoke and low profile design for minimal interference with helmet
  • Accepts 2” or 3” seat belts (Small unit - 2" belts only)
  • Winglets keep belts in place
  • Shoulder & collarbone padding
  • Exceptional comfort
  • Quick release helmet hardware
  • Proprietary Single Tension Neutralizing Tether System
  • Full range of head motion
  • Offers front and side impact protection
  • Made in the USA
  • Made in the USA: The NecksGen REV units are designed and made in the USA, using the latest carbon fiber composite Dupont material. Not only are these materials lightweight, but they are extremely strong.

    SFI 38.1 Certification

    All NecksGen REV head and neck restraints have passed the mandated SFI 38.1 testing procedures. Due to the innovative features of the designs, the NecksGen head and neck restraints have surpassed our expectations in test results.

    1. Quick Release Helmet Hardware: Unique single hand quick eject helmet attachment system.

    2. Emergency Pull: Optional pull tag for quick disconnect.

    3. Padding: The shoulder and collarbone padding provide added comfort to the unit.

    4. Winglets: Large adult units can accept 2” or 3” seat belts. Small unit accepts 2" belts only. The wings aid in keeping your harness in place under impact. Even in multiple impact situations where the belts could loosen.

    5. Tension Neutralizing Tether: Using a proprietary single tension-neutralizing tether (TNT), the loads under impact are distributed through four different load paths. This unique system offers an equal distribution of forces under impact. This system also offers a full range of head motion and side and angular impact protection.

    6. Low Profile Design: The low profile design makes egress in and out of the car in an emergency easier

    Sizing the REV is fairly simple if you use this handy chart. Remember that fitment is based on personal preference, and sizing isn’t necessarily limited to the measurements shown. If your neck is wider than the inside diameter of the device shown, the device could still fit, and will function properly, but some comfort will be sacrificed. If you are on the edge between a medium and a large but have narrow shoulders, go with the medium.

    The NecksGen REV and Original units come with a fixed length tether that is a predetermined length to fit most drivers. Certain circumstances may require you to need a different length tether. Neck length, helmet drill locations, seating angles, shoulder muscle build, posture, and suit thickness may all play contributing factors into how much tether length/slack you will have. After installing your helmet hardware and test fitting your NecksGen in your car, have a friend help you do a slack test to ensure you are within the safe region of tether length for your situation.

    Slack Test: Get buckled in your car as if you are ready to race and look straight ahead to the horizon. Have a helper lightly pull any slack from the tether all to one side. Pinch the tether to form a loop and measure the total length of the excess tether. This number should be between 2.0 and 4.0 inches of total slack. This is the ideal range. If it is not in this range, contact NecksGen for an appropriate length tether for your situation. Tethers are available in one inch increments.

The low profile design encapsulates the sliding TNT tether and allows for minimal rear interference with the helmet and the device.

    NecksGen is available in the following configurations:

  • NecksGen REV: The NecksGen REV head and neck restraint is the smallest device on the market today. NecksGen REV is available in three sizes: large, medium and small to cover a full range of drivers. NecksGen REV uses the same quick release helmet attachment system that has been used on previous NecksGen models. The NecksGen REV surpassed the company’s expectations in SFI 38.1 testing, Many racers feel that is the NecksGen REV is the safest, smallest and most comfortable neck brace on the market today it is another great alternative to the Hans Device. The NecksGen REV is made from a carbon composite material and is extremely popular in all forms of racing, especially with youth racers who prefer the smaller size device. The NecksGen REV offers outstanding front and side impact protection. The NecksGen REV is an excellent choice for racers in most forms of motorsports.

    Some racers report that it may be somewhat difficult to locate their shoulder harnesses on the NecksGen REV due to its small form factor.
  • HANS Device

    The HANS Device is synonymous with head and neck restraint technology. HANS Performance Products was recently purchased by Simpson Performance Products a leader in motorsports safety equipment. The HANS Device is the most widely used and recognized head and neck restraint in motorsports, and is the product that all other products on the market are measured against. HANS Devices are used in NASCAR, NHRA, IHRA, USAC, Formula 1, WOO and most other racing series.

    The HANS Device is currently available in several configurations including:

  • HANS Device Sport III: The New HANS III represents the third generation of injection molded HANS devices and features a contemporary approach to reducing weight. Using an all new design and polymer, the device features a hollow collar that substantially minimizes weight. Engineered reinforcements ensure an exceptionally strong structure that provides the same level of safety as every HANS device. The reduced mass guarantees the lightest and most comfortable injection molded HANS ever.

  • HANS Device Sport II: The HANS Device Sport II models feature a lower rounded back than the original HANS Device design. The HANS Device Sport II design provides for less chance of the back getting caught on the roll cage or in window openings when entering or exiting the race car. The HANS Device Sport II is only available in a 20 Degree Layback configuration which is suitable for the majority of racing applications including most Stock Cars, Modifieds, Drag, Legends, Bandalero and most road race cars including Porsche, BMW, Corvette, Honda, Viper, Spec Miata and other similar race cars. It is also popular with Sprint Car, Midget, Mini/Micro Sprint cars even though they have a significantly more upright seating position, typically about 10 Degrees. However, the HANS Device Sport II is not compatible with cars that have extreme layback seats such as formula type cars, Indy Cars, etc. The HANS Device Sport II is available with post anchor or quick click helmet anchors and can be ordered with SFI or FIA Certifications (or both). The HANS Device Sport II is available in adult and child sizes, and is a very good choice for most types of racing.

    The HANS Device Sport II, while being extremely effective and popular, has some inherent design characteristics that cause some concern with some drivers. In particular, the HANS Device signature design can create pressure on the collarbone area and subsequent discomfort for some racers. Optional gel pads are available which can greatly reduce this issue in most cases. In addition, while providing outstanding front impact protection, the HANS Device Sport II design does not provide any side impact protection unlike some other products on the market. Some drivers report issues with shoulder harnesses sliding off the HANS Device. Many drivers opt for specially designed restraint systems that utilize a 2” shoulder harness and or a sternum strap to reduce the possibility of the harness sliding off the device.
  • HANS Device Pro Adjustable: The HANS Adjustable enables all drivers to a comfortable fit no matter what type of car or racing seat they use. It is adjustable in five-degree increments which allows the Hans Adjustable device to improve the fit and comfort for all racers. The HANS Adjustable can be used in different types of cars. If a racer competes in a sprint car with an upright seat and also a stock car with a reclined seat the device easily adjusts to the seat layback from 10 to 40 degrees. The HANS Adjustable Device has a low profile rounded back similar to HANS Device Sport II to improve entry and exit of the race car. The HANS Device Adjustable is available with post anchor or quick click helmet anchors. The HANS Adjustable is an excellent choice for the driver who competes in several different types of motorsports and needs maximum flexibility in his head and neck restraint design.

    While providing outstanding flexibility for the racer with its adjustable layback, the HANS Adjustable shares many of the signature HANS Device design characteristics that cause some concern with some drivers including the pressure on the collarbone, lack of side impact protection, potential issues with shoulder harnesses sliding off like the HANS Sport II Device.
  • HANS Device Pro Ultra: The HANS Device Pro Ultra features lightweight construction of the Carbon Fiber Pro series combined with the shape of the HANS Device Sport II. The HANS Device Pro Ultra is extremely lightweight and allows for easy entry and exit from the race car, even smaller tighter vehicles. The hollow core 100% carbon fiber construction features a hollow core for increased weight reduction without sacrificing strength. The sliding tethers offer exceptional head movement for great viisibility. The HANS Device Pro Ultra is available with post anchor or quick click helmet anchors and can be ordered with SFI or FIA Certifications (or both). This device is also available in an even lighter weight version called the HANS Device Pro Ultra Lite that weighs in at 100+ Grams less. The HANS Device Pro Ultra is an outstanding choice for the professional racer, especially in classes where every gram of weight is critical.

    While providing the lightest possible solution in the HANS Device lineup, the HANS Device Pro Ultra also shares many of the trademark HANS Device design characteristics that cause some concern with some drivers including the pressure on the collarbone, lack of side impact protection, potential issues with shoulder harnesses sliding off like the HANS Sport II Device.
  • Simpson Hybrid Series:

    The original design concepts of the Simpson Hybrid Series were originally designed and engineered by Trevor Ashline of Safety Solutions. Simpson Performance Products purchased Safety Solutions several years ago and today markets these products under the Simpson brand. SFI testing has shown superior protection in side and multiple impacts. Simpson's Hybrid Series is a great hans device alternative and was designed for easily exiting the car without the danger of being entangled in other gear. Simpson Head and Neck restraints offer the lowest profile of any comparable device. Plus, they provide you with maximum comfort and maneuverability.

    The Simpson Hybrid Series is currently available in several configurations including:

  • Simpson Hybrid Sport: The Simpson Hybrid Sport Head and Neck Restraint is latest evolution of the Simpson Hybrid Series and replaces the Simpson Hybrid Pro Rage. The Simpson Hybrid Sport weighs in at 20% less than the Hybrid Pro Rage and features DuPont carbon/polymer construction. The Simpson Hybrid Sport design is more sleek and modern and has more defined “wings” for improved shoulder harness retention. It features a sliding tether multi-tether system that enhances side to side range of movement and improves field of vision. The Simpson Hybrid Sport comes with standard Quick Release Tethers and D-Ring Kit. Optional Dual End tethers and M6 Anchors or Post Clip Tethers & Post Anchors are also available. The Hybrid Sport is available with SFI 38.1 or FIA certification (or both). The Simpson Hybrid Sport is an excellent choice for all racers in all forms of motorsport.

    The Simpson Hybrid Sport provides outstanding frontal and side impact protection. Simpson offers an optional “SAS” Seat Anchoring System that the company encourages for use with Sprint Cars and other classes where it offers even more stability in flips and barrel roll accidents. Some drivers are a bit skeptical of the “strap-on” design of the Simpson Hybrid Sport device, while others prefer it since they literally can put it on once and leave it on all day. It is very popular with young racers who commonly have comfort issues with the typical “horseshoe” shaped devices. The Simpson Hybrid Pro has also become extremely popular open wheel, off road and drag racers alike. Due the low profile design, the Simpson Hybrid Sport it provides easy entry and exit in all types of race cars and works equally well in all seat layback configurations.
  • Simpson Hybrid Pro Slide: The Simpson Hybrid Pro Slide is constructed of 100% Carbon Fiber providing the lightest product in the Hybrid lineup. It shares all of the aforementioned features and benefits of the Simpson Hybrid Sport at a significantly higher retail price. The Simpson Hybrid Pro Slide is an excellent choice for professional racers in all forms of motorsport where a lightweight head and neck restraint solution is critical.
  • Simpson Hybrid Pro: The Simpson Hybrid and Hybrid Pro Device carry the SFI 38.1 Certification and are the only Hybrid Series devices approved for use in NASCAR competition. The Hybrid Pro head and neck restraint shares all of the main features and benefits of the other Hybrid products, but currently is marketed exclusively to NASCAR competitors.
  • Simpson Hybrid X: The Simpson Hybrid X package is designed for drag racing's extreme speeds and includes the Hybrid Pro Slide Head and Neck Restraint, specially fitted with the Double Chin Strap "W" style and sem-rigid Neck Collar constructed of SFI 45.2 approved padding. The package provides extreme protection featuring six tethers connecting to four points on the helmet.
  • Simpson R3 Device The Simpson R3 is the only SFI 38. 1 certified device that is totally independent of the seat belts. Engineered to disappear, the R3 is one of the most comfortable devices on the market! Combined with a simple installation of a u-shaped seat pad, the R3 disappears into the seat back, making the R3 undetectable to the wearer.

  • The R3 out performs yoke style devices in all impacts. The low top allows for easier exit. Can be used with all seatbelts (including 3 point) and is the only SFI restraint that can be used without Seatbelts! The Simpson R3 Head and Neck Restraint is available in a youth size that is extremely popular in quarter midget kart racing.

  • Due to its unique design and back support, the Simpson R3 has not gained much popularity in circle track racing, but has found a home in many drag racing cockpits. It lacks the comfort of the more minimal design of the Simpson Hybrid Series but remains a great solution in certain segments of motorsports.
  • Leatt

    Leatt pioneered many leading neck brace designs that are preferred in the for the motocross and ATV powersports, karting, BMX, snowmobile and other forms of racing. Backed by scientific research and the collaboration with highly esteemed players in the safety field, all Leatt products benefit from the continuous efforts by Dr. Leatt and his team of designers and biomedical engineers at the Leatt Lab in Cape Town, South Africa, home of Leatt’s research & development.

  • Leatt MRX:The Leatt MRX head and neck restraint system addresses the comfort issue that is a concern especially with drivers of off road trucks, buggies, UTVs and off road rally drivers in particular, had comfort issues that, for some, could be almost unbearable. The Leatt MRX design incorporates a a flexible chassis, thick fire retardant Nomex padding, and collarbone cut outs to molds itself better to more body shapes. The flexibility of the device also results in optimal head control, bringing the head and tether angle to an ideal orientation for maximum energy uptake that also results in decreased neck forces during the entire crash sequence. The Leatt MRX is SFI 38.1 tested and certified for optimum protection at over 70G. It is lightweight weighing in at about 900g.

    The Leatt MRX features a single collar angle design that allows perfect fit and function with all seat angles. It fits all types of 2” and 3” harnesses. The tether hardware is easy to attach and remove from the helmet, but some racers complain that there is not currently a quick release anchor / tether available for the unit.
  • Impact

  • Impact Accel: The Impact Accel Head and Neck Restraint is scheduled for release in fall 2014. Similar in design to the Impact NecksGen, the Impact Accel is designed with angular impact protection, comfort, and affordability in mind.
