We talk and blog about Leatt quite a bit at SportsProtective. It is a brand we fully support and believe in. Their technology and advancements speak for themselves and their wide use amongst riders is another testament to the level of commitment Leatt has to riders, and in return, the loyalty riders have to Leatt.
One thing potential riders should hear more of is testimonials about products. It can have an impact on whether or not they feel compelled to purchase. Leatt products, including their Leatt DBX neck braces, receive great testimonials and feedback from riders. Some interesting ones are below.
“On a downhill mountain bike run at Kalmunda Farrell Grove, I had a bad landing after a jump that sent me face first into a tree. My head whipped back, and my full-face helmet thankfully stopped upon contact with my Leatt DBX 5 .5. I did the same thing in July 2014 and punctured my spinal cord, so this time I know that it prevented me from breaking my neck. Awesome product, everyone should wear one” – Geoff McFadden of Australia
"I was lucky enough to be wearing one of your leatt neck braces during my fall – and I honestly believe that I’d be in a different situation if I weren't wearing it. I was at my local scadson freeride park, building my confidence to jump again after years of being away from it. I started on some of the smaller jumps and trails, and it came back just like riding a bike (pun intended).
My speed was good, but my positioning was too far forward, and I got bucked forward, which made me catch my front wheel on the down ramp, chucking me over the bars, I landed flat on the left of the jump. Got some deep scratches on my new full-face helmet on the chin bar and I’m pretty sore, but luckily I was wearing a Leatt neck brace which literally saved my life!
I believe the only damage to the neck brace was that I broke one of the plastic clips.
Can’t thank you guys enough for the great design and comfort of the neck brace, I recommend that everyone wears one.
Great job, thanks very much!" - Scott Bathard of the UK
"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 weren't for my Leatt DBX neck brace I would have broken my neck for sure and have had to be airlifted out. The thoracic pack part on the back had snapped clean in half, proving the severity of the crash. Without Leatt, I don’t know if I would ever have been able to ride again." - Ben Azoulay of New Jersey
