Ive had the original T2 for years and recently upgraded to this. The best feature is the lowering handle. So much easier to use than the old version. This is the best rack out there. Bought the extention as well and it works great.
This rack is primarily used on my wifes vehicle and the biggest complaint she has about the original T2 was how hard it was to raise and lower. The new handle grip system is the primary reason we upgraded.
If you have ever had a problem with sweat getting into your eyes on those hot summer days then you need to look at these. The vents are huge and after running these I have found that I dont have that problem any more. The fit is perfect for a variety of helmet and face sizes and shapes. Give em a try.
I have ridden Shimano XT brakes for as long as I can remember and after trying out these on a demo I have switched over. The stopping power is great. Run with the centerline rotors and you wont be disapointed.
I have been a fan of Leatt braces for years and have worn the DBX for as long as I can remember. The old design was excellent but I always had issues with the fit not being perfect. That has all changed with this one. The lower profile makes helmet clearance a non issue and the adjustments are much improved. My kid wouldn't wear the old style but he wont take this one off. He doesn't even know it is on him. So do they work? I have had two friends crash head first while wearing Leatts and they both walked away with nothing more than a scratched helmet. So I would say yeah they work. Bottom line is buy one of these. There is no reason not to.
