Ever since head and neck restraints became accepted shortly after Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s death, one group was left out of the equation, youngsters. There simply was no restraint designed for children racers. Until now. Using the proven technology in the standard adult unit, the NecksGen Youth is a narrower unit to accommodate the smaller torso of youth racers. The biggest difference is the shoulder platform and wing size - the youth unit accepts a 2 inch seat belt making the unit lighter and much narrower.
The Youth model is targeted towards drivers 7-16 years old and designed for drivers competing in Quarter Midgets, Bandolero, Legends, Trophy Karts and more. Weighing in at just 1.8 pounds and made from a carbon fiber composite material the NecksGen Youth is the lightest, smallest, most flexible and most comfortable youth head and neck restraint available!
The Youth unit is adjustable to fit a wide range of seat angles from 10 to 40 degrees. The low rear section makes getting in and out of a racecar in close confines easier.
The NecksGen restraint features unique belt wings to keep loose belts from falling off under accident conditions, this combined with belt channels keep the restraint system centered under the seat belts at all times.
The NecksGen’s adjustable tension-neutralizing helmet tether allows the impact load to be distributed evenly through four load paths for maximum head and neck protection. This has allowed the NecksGen to achieve superior results in SFI Certification testing. Its ergonomically flexible design helps achieve previously unsurpassed comfort while its body-forming belts and pads ensure there are no hard contact points to pressure the collarbone.
Priced at $599, the unit comes standard with Quick-release helmet hardware and in a carrying case ready to go racing!
