Neck Roll Chest Protector attachment question

I bought my son a dirtbike and got a Thor Sentinel chest protector on ebay, it came with a neck roll and with a shoe string type thing but it's not very clear how it attaches to the sentinel.. can someone help or show me a picture or a link to instructions on connecting this horseshoe shaped foam ring with loops at the bottom to the chest protector with a string?

Thanks in advance.

I dont think it would need to be attached to anything.

It's my understanding that you attach them to something.. I tried upside down on the helmet and that kind of works but I don't think it's right...

Hopefully a mod will move this to the dirt / atv section and someone in the know will pipe in.

I have never seen anyone attach them to anything but I have seen people put on foam around the edges of a chest protector. Im searching the net to see what I can find.

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ce-Collar.aspx
THOR RACE COLLAR


Padded neck collars offer exceptional support and help reduce neck fatigue
Internal pad is removable for easy cleaning
String included for attachment to most chest protectors

Still cant find out how.

Ok, moved to dirt to see if anyone here has any idea how to attach it to the protector. I called Thor, and it's actually a Quadrant Chest Protector but they said it could be attached to the helmet or the quadrant with zip ties or not at all.. very nilly and it all seemed optional. Maybe you only attach it so it doesnt come loose and get lost. They said it was designed to be used just loosely around the neck.

I pretty sure that is exactly correct. Most just wear loose. The main reason to tie off is uncase it comes undone it does not go flying across the track.

This.



But, if you want real/serious protection, get him a Leatt or A-Stars neck brace.

Yes, I know.. waiting to see if he is into it before I invest much more money.. I'm already pretty deep in the bike and gear and he hasn't even ridden on a MX track yet.

Which brings another question, why don't more road racer's use Leatt devices? I track ride with evidently little or no neck protection. I do wear a back protector, leathers, gloves, boots, arai, etc..

I wear the same brace as pictured above when riding the motard.

my leatt doesn't work well with the road racing body positioning. Also, it doesn't work well with my leathers and my back protector. others mileage may vary.

i have seen people drill their chest protectors to attach the neck roll. also, i have seen them free floating and zip tied.

how old is your boy? you didn't get a dirtbike for yourself? you are missing out on the fun.

Saw a leatt on cl for 100, could offer less. I have a leatt but can get it to fit with my road gear.
