Not a problem on the trail where I can hear a faster rider approach from behind .
On multilane the restriction is enough to prevent effective head checks when lane changing.

If I have to ride the slab to get where I want I'll leave the Leatt at home - sure do miss it on the trail
I wear a Leatt all the time with my GS, even on the street. Yes neck movement is limited, but I've found that I can turn enough to be safe changing lanes. I'm going to look at their street version in the near future:

This is apparently much less restrictive while still offering up good protection.
