The all new 2015 Atlas Tyke provides top tier protection in a pint size package. Creating the best kids protection meant not making any sacrifces... The complete redesign for 2015 is modeled after the sleek and sophisticated new Atlas Air adult brace, but has been reduced in size to ft your little daredevil perfectly. Features include a reduced new weight of 450g (1lb), redesigned body hugging frame shape to reduce brace movement and improve ft/range of motion, simplifed Easy Open release system, stronger and stifer long travel front suspension, back supports that appear smaller but increase surface area, lighter and tougher padding material in vibrant new colors, and a redesigned innovative tether that eliminates the need for multiple tools during adjustment.
Comfort and mobility are just as important as safety, as we feel limiting ones ability through constricting equipment can lead to potentially dangerous situations where someone may not be able to react properly to avoid the situation. As the future of our sport, we want kids to feel safer while taking risks by wearing safety equipment that doesn’t hinder their ability, so we included all of our game changing fexibility technology into the Atlas Tyke.
Light weight design, comfort, and flexibility all add up to an experience that mimics the feeling of not wearing a brace at all. This advantage helps translate all your focus and energy into what matters… Speed. Worn by some of the greatest riders on the planet such as Ryan Villopoto, you know you're safe wearing Atlas.
