The 360 Plus uses firm foam padding under the driver's chin. Other devices use rigid plastic which makes them less comfortable and potentially dangerous to the throat area in the event of a frontal impact. The foam is also much denser than the foam in a simple neck collar, which makes it more resistant to frontal hyper-flexion.
The vertical braces of the core piece, located behind the driver's helmet, help control rear hyper-flexion in the event of a collision with hay bales or other "soft" barriers. The upper vertical brace limits rearward helmet movement by transferring the energy to the lower vertical brace positioned against the driver's back.
Low side bolsters limit extreme lateral motion of the head, yet still allow the driver unrestricted head rotation to look from side to side. The bolsters also reduce compression loads on the spine in rollover situations by transferring the load from the neck to the shoulders and torso.
The 360 Plus Device is designed to break away, minimizing the potential for injury to the throat in the unlikely event that it becomes hooked on something. The device is retained by adjustable straps around the shoulders. It does not require a driver restraint harness or helmet tethers.
All foam pieces are fully adjustable laterally and front-to-back to suit each driver's specific physique. Weighs only 1.5 pounds (0.68 kg).
The 360 Plus Device is available in two sizes
Youth, which accommodates 10" to 13" neck sizes
Adult, which fits neck sizes of 13" and up.
