The Atlas Carbon is the Holy Grail of neck protection. The complete redesign for 2015 is impossibly light, flexible, and showcases a sleek, sexy, simplistic, and sophisticated new design that is the perfect combination of fashion and function. New features include an insanely low weight of 575g (1.2lbs.), redesigned body hugging frame shape to reduce brace movement and improve fit/range of motion, simplified Easy Open release system, stronger and stiffer long travel front suspension, back supports that appear smaller but increase surface area, all new reversible Smart Mounts with multi-angle adjustment, lighter and tougher padding material in vibrant new colors, and a redesigned innovative tether that eliminates the need for multiple tools. Carbon fibre is a naturally rigid material, but to make the Holy Grail of neck protection we won’t accept that. Flexibility is the key to absorption, dispersion, and mobility so we tested countless weave combinations and layering techniques to obtain the most amount of flex possible out of an extremely rigid material. As it turns out, we achieved a significant increase in flexibility, and a lower weight, making the Atlas Carbon the Holy Grail of neck protection.
Split-Flex Frame - Vertical flex is the Holy Grail of mobility and comfort. Our split frame helps mimic natural body movements to create the best experience possible
Easy Open - All new Easy Open system allows for quick, repeatable entry and exit with a simple push of a button, in any weather condition.
Smart Mounts - One mount, 6 positions. Reversible to adjust size, and choose from a -10, 0, or +10 back support angle in either position.
Chest Suspension - All new long travel front suspension features 30mm of travel (a 300% increase), and is slightly stiffer to help dampen a wider range of impact forces.
Height Adjustment - Choose from 2 possible height adjustments to create the best fit for your body type and helmet choice.
Spine Free - All new back supports increase contact with the body by 8% over the previous model, and avoid your spine by sitting on the surrounding muscles
Sternum Free - All new chest support design is stronger, lighter, more compatible with chest protectors, and still sits around your sternum.
Hybrid Strap - Combining the comfort of a chest strap, with the function and versatility of elastic X straps. The best of both worlds.
Feather Weight (575 grams) - New weight is 12% lower than the previous model. The most amazing thing about wearing it is that you forget you’re wearing it. *MD size/Optional pads removed
Surface Area - By sitting on 27% more of the body than the competition, comfort is maximized, and forces are distributed more efficiently over the body.
