“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, just missing me.
Luckily, I was wearing my Leatt elbow guards. I broke my fall with my elbow and it was so bad that some of my skin was scraped off my elbow under the guard. My elbow was also swollen and bruised, but I could carry on with the ride. I was also wearing a 5.5 HD PRO chest protector. After the fall, my entire right rib cage felt bruised and it was sore to get up and out of bed or to even to cough.

I just wanted to say that your products are amazing. A lot of my mates say that elbow guards give them arm pump, but yours have never given me any, they never slide down and I pretty much don’t notice that they’re there. Thanks for making such amazing products.
