In today’s racing gear review, Winding Road Racing product expert Shawn Stout talks about why we like the new Necksgen Rev 2 Lite head and neck restraint system:

To recap the benefits of this SFI-rated head neck restraint:

Super light: The new Necksgen Rev 2 Lite is constructed out of composite material, making it weigh in at only 1.2 pounds.

Low-profile design: Similar to previous versions of the Necksgen, the Rev 2 maintains its low-profile design, allowing it to fit with all seat configurations.

Adjustable straps: The straps are now adjustable on the Rev 2, so the tethers can be adjusted to your preferred fit.

Higher belt-guides: In case of an accident, the higher belt guides help keep everything in place, reducing the chance of your harness rolling over your shoulders.

Additional comfort: The new and improved shoulder pad design increases the comfort level from previous versions.

Unique helmet latching system: The Necksgen Rev 2 has one of the easiest helmet latching systems available: just one pull is needed to release and one push into the latch (similar to a seatbelt) to attach to your helmet.

Recertification: The Rev 2 Lite now comes with free recertification. When the certification on your Rev 2 is expiring, racers can mail in their Necksgen and it will be recertified and mailed back to you.

The Necksgen Rev 2 head and neck restraint can be found online at or at any of our three retail locations (Austin, Southern California, or Bowling Green, KY).
