“If it weren’t for my Leatt shin guards, I probably wouldn’t have walked away unharmed that night”
I had purchased a pair of Leatt Dual Axis knee and shin guards to wear under my Kevlar riding jeans for added protection while riding my ZX-10. On June 8th, my Stepdad hit a deer head-on and completely shattered everything from his knees to his toes in both legs, leaving him unable to walk for many months.
While holding his twisted legs in the ditch for over an hour until the helicopter arrived, I witnessed how important protective gear is. On July 9th, I too hit a deer head-on going 55. Due to my brakes being loaded at the time and the solid design of the ZX-10, I ploughed through the deer, but it swung around and smashed against my right leg with unbelievable force. If it weren’t for my Leatt shin guards, I probably wouldn’t have walked away unharmed that night.
If my Stepdad would have been wearing a pair during his accident, I’m certain the amount of damage done to his legs would have been significantly reduced. I just wanted to thank everyone at Leatt for designing solid products that save people’s lives and people’s legs.
