a BJJ class, will make your neck more tension 10X
It's similar to an airbag in a car. Those can be dangerous too, but the benefits out way the risk.

I'm not familiar with "BJJ class" but if those are the neck collars/braces the tension is constant, whereas the airbag type is potentially a very quick expansion of your vertebrae.

I'm just playing devil's advocate here, hopefully the manufactures study this possibility because I could see some lawsuits if the lawyers could prove a neck injury was due to the vest and not the accident itself.

Less thinking, more buying. I'll post my full crash review later of the Hit Air Racer Vest. Highly recommended!

Hit Air crash thread with Pics here:

My track crash thread, HitAir Vest and Hotbodies, pics! - ZX6R Forum

I always wore mine for practice and during most races. The only time I didn't wear it during a race was at a very high speed track like Road America and Daytona where every small aerodynamic disadvantage might cost a race win. Now I have a tether installed on my street bike as well.

Before buying see if they still give a racer discount. And order an extra cartridge and multiple tethers if you have multiple bikes.

Thank you to my racing sponsors Riders Discount and Alpha1 Vinylworks

LOL!

So what you are saying is when you are about to high or low side, a "BJJ" will magically appear and throttle the f*ck out of your neck?

Now: Gen-5 ZX10R
Total: 7 Years riding on street. No stunting.

A little pulling in the neck cannot hurt you...

I didn't make the first post about BJJ, I was just clearing up what BJJ was for you.

It's not a person it's a form of martial arts that involves systems that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.
