Engineered for Performance
The Leatt-Brace is a neck brace designed to help reduce neck injuries in helmeted sports, including Supercross, Motocross, Enduro, Road Racing, ATV, Street Riding and Snowmobiling.
In 2001, Dr. Chris Leatt began designing neck brace prototypes. As a motorcycle rider, physician, and father of a young son, Dr. Leatt was struck by the near total lack of neck protection equipment in the sport. He began to look for ways way to help reduce the injurious forces that can be exerted on the neck during motorcycle accidents. At the time, Dr. Leatt was a neurosurgery trainee at an academic hospital. He had access to university expertise in medicine, surgery and bioengineering as well as to fellow motorcycle enthusiasts. In his spare time over the next four years, Dr. Leatt researched relevant medical literature, consulted with experts, and tested prototype braces. Dr. Leatt worked for five years to develop the Leatt-Brace. The first Leatt-Brace appeared on the market in 2006.
The Leatt-Brace uses what the inventor calls Alternative Load Path Technology to help absorb and disperse injury-producing forces. The brace is intended for use by participants in those wheeled or motor sports in which full-face helmets are commonly worn and the vehicle is not equipped with torso restraints (seat belts or shoulder harnesses).
Unlike foam collars, the Leatt-Brace is a semi-rigid platform. It is designed to help disperse energy away from the neck in the event of a crash. In the case of head impact, the helmet comes into contact with the top of the brace. The brace is designed to disperse the potential injury-producing load into the lower part of the brace, with the remaining energy traveling into the upper body in a controlled manner.
