Last major piece of safety gear acquired for TT / HC. I was planning on begging / borrowing a HANS from a friend, but this one came up for sale locally for utter peanuts. It’s an older model, but I took it to Downing Atlanta (ie: the people who created the HANS) to have it re-certified and get sliding tethers installed. So… new-to-me HANS device for <$200 all told (including initial purchase). Friggin. Score.
