My daughter is living proof they work
As I finally approached Chelsy I had a huge sigh of relief because she was sitting up and holding her arm. Wow! Went thru my mind. The Leatt neck brace just saved my daughter’s life.
My daughter Chelsy and I went for a day of practice at Wheeler Mx Park in Wheeler WI. We did a couple warm up turns on the corner track and then proceeded onto the jump track. We made a slow turn to check the track out because this track is all powdered sand. There is a section with three sets of doubles, she hit the first two and everything looked good until the third set when she came off the lip of the face of the jump. I knew right there it was not going to be pretty. Once she was in the air the bike went sideways and all I heard was a panic rev.
Chelsy tried to straighten the bike out but as she landed with the back tire first the bike was already at a 45% angle. The front dug in and it threw her like a rag doll end over end in midair and then I lost sight of her. What a scary thought for a parent, not knowing what to expect when I got to her. It seemed like an hour passed as I was running to her. As I finally approached Chelsy I had a huge sigh of relief because she was sitting up and holding her arm. I took her helmet and neck brace off. That’s when I noticed that the back thoracic support was missing from the neck brace. Wow! Went thru my mind. The Leatt neck brace just saved my daughter’s life. I believe that anyone that is prone to a neck injury in a sport that they participate in there should be no questions asked and should wear a Leatt neck brace. My daughter is living proof they work.
Chelsy wears all the Leatt protective gear including a neck brace, chest protector, elbow guards and knee guards. The outcome of her crash was a fractured wrist. My daughter and I can’t say thank you enough.
