The Atlas Tyke was specially designed for children, while it still has all the features of the “big” Carbon or Air Braces, only reduced in size and weight (450g). The Tyke takes the same neck brace technologies used by the pro’s to ensure that the future of our sport have the maximum protection possible.
All braces distribute force. This one make’s it unnoticeable. Flexibility is the key to injury prevention. It works for our bodies, and it’s the focal point of our design. Flexibility helps absorb impacts, rather than transferring them to the body with little or no reduction. It can even help mimic natural body movements. The combination makes wearing an Atlas Brace unnoticeably natural. All new stiffer front suspension features an increase in travel from 10 to 30mm. Why? It helps dampen a wider range of impacts, and helps keep your head in controlled rotation. Commonly referred to as “tuck and roll”, this motion can potentially reduce possible injury caused by your head coming to an abrupt stop during an impact.
Sternal Free – At the front, the support is not to the sternum, but the pressure is evenly distributed on both pads.
Split-Flex framework – Vertical flexibility is the ne plus ultra respect of motion and comfort. The ATLAS Split-frame allows a perfect adaptation to the movements of the body, for comfort and protection.
Surface Area – The ATLAS Brace is by 27% more to the body than any competing product. Thus, the impact energies are more evenly distributed over the body and can be absorbed better.
Feather Weight – The ATLAS TYKE is ideal to wear with its 450 g for children.
Easy Open – The new easy-open system allows a rapid opening and closing of the Braces with a simple push of a button.
Smart Mounts – the bracket allows six different positions for optimum adjustment of Braces to the body.
chest suspension – the new front chest support is significantly longer and wider and is therefore better to the body. It is somewhat stiffer to absorb a wider range of strokes.
Colored Padding – colored cushions make for a fresh look.
Hybrid Strap – Combines the convenience of a chest strap with the flexibility of elastic X-Straps. Keeps the Brace always in position.
Atlas recommends the Tyke for children with a chest circumference of 61 – 71 cm (24” – 28”). If you have any concerns regarding sizing, please give our customer service team a call on 1300 871 290, and they will be happy to assist you.
In addition to our rigorous one-of-a-kind lab testing performed in the USA, the Atlas Brace is also lab tested in Europe to meet various CE standards. The Atlas Brace conforms with the requirements of the European Directive 89/686/EEC concerning Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), along with EN 1621-2 :2003 which relates to clothing/motorcyclists’ back protectors against mechanical impact, EN 340:2003 for general requirements of protective clothing, and also me-int 074-00 which tests ergonomics, and tensile
