Leatt®Testimonial

I am still here because of your outstanding product.

The major injuries included: broken Back at the L-1 vertebrae, broken Ribs, a torn Spleen and a bulging Aorta. A stent implant saved my heart, and no spine damage occurred so I have full feeling and motion. I suffered no spine damage!!! I suffered no neck injury!!!I have been riding motorcycles since I was a teenager. I am now 52 years old. I am not a racer, but ride for adventure and fun with the family.

I have always worn safety gear when riding, but not a neck brace. This past June I bought a new KTM 500 EXC and due to that machines high performance, I decided to purchase all the safety gear available. So right after getting the KTM I bought a Leatt GPX 5.5 neck brace.

Last month, March 4, 2015, I was riding with friends and family at the Ocotillo Wells State Vehicle Recreation Area, here in Southern California. I was riding my KTM 500 and we were traversing trails that crisscrossed steep slopes. I came up on a hills peak and the trail curved in such a way that I would have to slow down and lose momentum to stay on the trail. I decided to go off the trail and take a look at the backside of the hill as it didn’t look to difficult. Even though the hill dropped off sharply, I thought I could handle it. Well, I soon realized that I had made a grave mistake. I was now clearing a 20 foot drop off. I realized that this was not going to come out good.

My wife witnessed it as I was able to land the motorcycle on both wheels. “A perfect landing.” she later said. But gravity is still gravity and momentum from a 20 drop was too much for this old man. After the initial landing and the bike’s suspension bottomed out, it rebounded and pitched me over the handlebars. I then hit the ground head first and collapsed.

After a helicopter ride to a local hospital where they checked me over, I was then flown by second helicopter to a medical center in LA.

The major injuries included: broken Back at the L-1 vertebrae, broken Ribs, a torn Spleen and a bulging Aorta.

A stent implant saved my heart, and no spine damage occurred so I have full feeling and motion. I suffered no spine damage!!! I suffered no neck injury!!!

Doctors concluded that I would be dead or severely paralyzed, had I not been wearing a neck brace.

I want to thank Leatt for providing an outstanding product. I am still here because of your outstanding product.

Respectfully,

Eric Larson
