“If it were not for that there is know way I would have gotten up”

This Story starts back in March of 2020. On a quick mtb ride I crashed hard and bruised my liver. I was only wearing helmet but my torso took all impact as did my ribs and liver. After taking a few months to recover I got back on the bike and started riding again, unwilling …

Kyle H, NJ , United States

“Other than being a little sore he walked away just fine”

Thank you to all you people at Leatt Protectives. My 7 year old took a nasty crash in his 4th moto last night. I feel confident that he wouldn’t have walked away from this one without his Leatt vest. Pretty much destroyed the vest, but other than being a little sore he walked away just …

Adam Watkins, USA

“The armour obviously did it’s work as I basically walked away”

Hi there, just thought I’d send you guys a message of thanks. I had an off on the motorway last week at 117kmph. I slid for what felt like a lifetime. Anyway thanks to your 5.5 armour I came out just sore and grazed on my top half. I only got a bit of road …

“They are light, easy to adjust and to put on and take off “

At 69 I’m more brittle and prone to injury. I ride Vintage Trials all summer and have had a lot of knee issues the past two years. I needed protection and support for both knees without losing flexibility and movement. I’m super happy with my Z-frames, I don’t feel them at all while riding and …

“Thanks for inventing and developing the Leatt protective gear”

To Whom it May Concern I felt I needed to just say thank you , your protective gear really works. I have been riding enduro’s for about 10 years and slowly as I got older I felt the need to buy protective gear as my recovery times seem to be getting longer and longer. I …

Malcolm Mac Sherry, Barkley East

“Highly recommend this product! “

Too many incidents to count! When you go down hard and you stand up with no pain but know you landed hard on or near the knee you know the brace did its job! I had to replace the patella cap a couple months back due to a hard fall. Zero damage to my knee. …

Ryan Young, CA, USA

“Thank you everyone at Leatt for making this product and continuing to produce gear that keeps riders safe”

Dear Leatt, I wanted to take a moment to thank your company for your continued support of the sport I love so much. I have been wearing Leatt Products for nearly 10 years now and unfortunately had a chance to truly test one of your products this past weekend. On November 11th, 2018 I woke …

“The crash sucked, but didn’t hurt one bit!”

[After my crash] I was definitely sore for a while after Rampage. Been chilling a bit since I got back home though and just letting the body heal a bit. Chiro helped me pretty huge too. Crazy the toll that place takes on your body. The crash sucked, but didn’t hurt one bit! I was …

Thanks to my Leatt helmet, neck brace, chest protector, elbow and knee pads, I was able to jump up and finish the race virtually unscathed!! Leatt is by far the most comfortable protective gear I’ve ever used!” – Gavyn Wosey, California, …

Gavyn Wosey, California, United States

“As I hit the rock, I knew that it was going to end badly”

I misjudged the take-off on a rock at very high speed. Mid-air I came to the conclusion that I either had to push my front wheel down into a rock or fly off the track into a tree. I chose the rock. Luckily, I was wearing my DBX 3.0 Enduro Helmet. As I hit the …

“Any parent that allows their child to race without a chest protector and neck brace clearly needs to be educated”

Brennan is 14 years old and races the Hare Scramble in Ohio on a KTM 105. Last year, we did GNCC and he finished 7th. Just to let you know…he is fast. When he wrecks, it’s at a fast pace. Last Sunday, he was in control of the race until he lost control of his …

Brennan Rydarowicz, Ohio , USA

“We completely believe in the Leatt brace and if our experiences help someone else come into the family then that is great!”

The crash happened on the second race of Saturday ( Round 3 of the WORCS series ) and he was riding in the Production 250 Sport class. There were three side by side races between his first race and his second race so the track had become very rutted out from the side by sides. …

Matty Cee, United States

“The Leatt 4.5 Pro chest protector saved my back from being seriously injured”

Today I had a serious wipeout on the MX Track. I wiped out on the one jump as I landed. There was another rider not too far behind me. I was wearing my Leatt 4.5 Pro Chest Protector on, together with my Leatt neck brace. I’m sure the neck brace also assisted in me not …

Your passion and foresight in preventing crippling and life-ending neck injuries in motorcyclists and other wheeled sports participants, has led to another survivor who is not paralyzed from what should have been a life ending or permanently paralyzing motorcycle wreck.

Steven Toutant, Ohio, USA

“I reckon the side protection from the HD PRO 5.5 could have even saved a broken rib or two.”

I did the Powasol Dragonsback Xtreme event recently and there was a steep, long downhill. I was pulling the front brakes as hard as I could (without locking the wheel), and I hit quite a big rock and went flying off the bike. I slammed into the rocky ground, and the bike came crashing down, …

“If you think you’re invincible and incapable of getting seriously injured, you’re wrong.”

If you think you’re invincible and incapable of getting seriously injured, you’re wrong. You will fall, that’s how you get better and learn, it’s the fact of riding. The questions no one can answer is when, how hard, and how extensive the injuries will be. It’s been three weeks since I was practicing for a …

Madison Marie Tippetts, Wyoming, USA

“I cannot thank you guys at Leatt enough”

I cannot thank you guys at Leatt enough for the neck braces you make. On Saturday, July 8th, 2017 I was racing my TRX450ER ATV at a local cross country series called AWRCS when I hit a kicker in 4th-5th gear at an estimated 50-55 M.P.H. when I began to roll. I rolled over six …

“The Leatt Brace saved me from a broken neck.”

The Leatt Brace saved me from a broken neck in 2010! I was racing Ponca City the week before Loretta’s and went over the bars in a small rhythm section. I went over so fast that my knees trapped by arms behind the bars and I couldn’t put my arms out to break my fall. …

“The Leatt C-frame knee brace has undoubtedly changed the way I am able to enjoy Kite Surfing!”

I injured my knee for the first time roughly ten years ago, which resulted in an complete ACL reconstruction. Then, three years ago I did further damage to the same knee while I was playing action cricket. This resulted in an operation, as my meniscus had to be stitched. During this operation, the doctor noticed …

“Without Leatt, I don’t know if I would ever have been able to ride again.”

I crashed hard during a jump run at a bike park, went OTB and onto my head. When the EMTs arrived and got me loaded onto the vehicle, they said if it wasn’t for my Leatt DBX neck brace I would have broken my neck for sure and have had to be airlifted out. The …

Over the drop and head first into a rock

Having had a back crash without a neck brace and slightly slipping my C1 and C2 before I always ride my downhill bike with a Leatt so it’s nice to be told by a doctor that it worked!

Andrew L, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Marvin Musquin talks about his crash before the Toronto Supercross

During the crash, my head went all the way back but my Leatt stopped it before it went too far back.

Marvin Musquin, Toronto, Canada

I used to say ‘I don’t need a Leatt brace; I don’t ride fast enough.’

…“magically” a giant rock, about knuckle high, appears out of the right side of the trail and at full sprint, I smash my fist right into it. It immediately kicks my bars 90 degrees to the right, full stop.

Heather Baroody, B.C., Canada

I remember thinking to myself, as I stared at the ground, “This is not going to be good.”

The sled and I tumbled for a bit and after the snow settled, I was able to get back up, close up my sled, and continue the race.

Craig R.

I hit the ground with great force and was knocked out immediately.

Tyler Wiggins, Utah, USA

I am writing you as many riders do, thanking you for a great product

I threw the bike away from myself and closed my eyes.

I very clearly remember thinking I was in big trouble and suddenly felt myself slam headfirst into the hard dirt, followed by my left hand shoulder and side.

Joneen Houghton, Perth, Western Australia

The front tire was still wedged in a rut and I started to go over the handlebars.

Some of the spectators and the medics said that I would’ve been in worse condition if I hadn’t had my Leatt neck brace on.
