Leatt has added new features to the Ride 4, our lowest priced bicycle neck brace. The chassis is still made from fiberglass reinforced polyamide resin but now features a completely new rear thoracic strut. This strut, called CoreFlex, allows the rear, downward, “fingers” to flex independently of each other with co-molded, soft, rubber set between them and extending below them. Like all Leatt neck braces the Ride 4 was invented by motorcycle racer and trauma surgeon, Doctor Chris Leatt, and built around Leatt Corporation’s patented Alternative Load Path Technology, this brace is CE certified as personal protection. Leatt neck braces are used and trusted by more bicycle, ATV, motorcycle and snowmobile riders and racers than any other neck brace. The world’s most popular neck braces just got better!

The neck brace sizing chart suggests the brace has two settings: S/M-L/XL Where the biggest setting is S/M and the smallest setting is L/XL.- this appears to be conflicting. What are these settings referring to? Does this mean the brace is adjustable to meet both sizes? The sizing chart text doesn't appear to be very self explanatory

The sizes are as listed and shown on the sizing guide - S/M is adjustable through the Small and Medium sizes, while L/XL is adjustable through Large and X-Large. As the size chart shows, you can effectively use the S/M for any size up to a chest circumference of 94cm (37"), a larger chest size than this will need the L/XL version.
