my cables have never snapped ? had a hinge problem , phoned them directly two days later 4 replacement hinges free of charge , still have the two spare , must say there was an issue with the first lot of hinges , but found the replaced them without an issue .Buy the X brace, I have been looking at braces for a while and oom Dean is the 1st person Pro C frame. Those cables snap and the hinges brake. Mate in KZN had 3 pairs sent directly from Leatt and he ended up just selling the last set and buying the latest Asterix.
If I pay for new braces its between the Alpine stars new Fluid Pro or Leatt Xframe.
