    This review is from: NecksGen Rev Head and Neck Retraint Unit – Generous
    I really have the prior version of the Necksgen but my comments apply to the features shared with this version.

    The excellent news is the necksgen is much simpler to place on or take off, in or out of the car, than is the HANS Sport 2. I’m tight in my car but have no vex gearing up with the necksgen while in the drivers seat.

    Compared to the HANS this unit works surpass in cars with ordinary passenger seats. A racing shell seat has extra room where the headrest is to allow for your helmet. A street seat lacks this space. Add the tall ducktail on back of a HANS device to the thickness of a helmet and you’ll find your head pushed forwards meeting in a street seat. If you lean your seat back more to compensate you’ll find yourself rolled forward with extra force on your neck and your shoulders may be unsupported. Your body shape and car ergonomics may vary.

    Where the necksgen until cascade small is in head mobility. To turn your head hard to one side the strap has to slide through the D-ring where the strap clips to your helmet. It doesn’t really want to do this without a lot of force. When trying to look far through a tight corner the necksgen binds up, limiting how far through the turn I can see. It turns into a pretty huge annoyance.

    If you are in a car with street or stock seats then you can make a case for the necksgen over the HANS. If you have racing specific seats then I suggest the HANS is the surpass unit.

    Whichever you prefer, do get and wear one.

    With a low back, shoulder slots for 3″ belts and small front to back profile, NecksGen Rev works in seats that would force your head too far forward with a Hans device. In addition, the NeksGen provide lateral protection that the Hans lacks.

    This blows away any other neck device!

    In auto racing, the cage is normally tight in most cars, and getting in and out of the car is tough enough when nothing goes incorrect. In an accident, the Hans may save your neck, but it’s nearly impossible to get out of the car quick wearing a Hans.

    The NecksGen Rev makes the Hans look like ancient technology.

    This is so much lighter and simpler, and gets out of the way of your chest belts.
    You can disconnect from it in a second, and your helmet is free, or climb out with it on.

    It’s so small, you can get out of the cage with small or no distraction due to it being attached to your helmet.
    The same can not be said for the Hans in most cases i have seen.

    If your looking for the next level of protection, this is it!
