Leatt Introduces 2017 Off-Road/Motocross Range Featuring Apparel
Leatt Debuts New Line Including Apparel Specifically Engineered for Off-Road Racing
CAPE TOWN, South Africa (September 1, 2016) Leatt Corporation, known for the invention of the first-of-its kind Leatt-brace® neck protection system, since expanded their range to include helmets, hydration, gloves, and more. Leatt now announces the extension of their off-road product portfolio to include apparel for the first time.
The new line, which was first presented at a public event at Crankworx Whistler in British Columbia, follows Leatt’s recent unveiling of new motorcycle products. The full 2017 moto/off-road line includes new helmets, limb, joint and chest protection products along with four jerseys, two pants, two jackets and five glove models.
Durable and ventilated, the GPX jackets sport zip-off arms, large zip-adjusted ventilation, and an internal hydration pocket with a bladder suspension system. The jersey range consists of dirt and water repellent designs, as well as lighter, breathable jerseys.
Made of tough, ventilated material with an anti-odor mesh lining, the GPX pants offer a tailored fit with 3D molded, fully floating knee cap reinforcement. The 5.5 pants are even more advanced and equipped with a new system called the I.K.S – Internal Knee Brace System, protecting the pants as well as the bike from knee brace wear.
A highlight for 2017 is the newly-designed C-Frame Pro Carbon knee brace with three-point force distribution and super stiff, forged C-arm mono-hinged construction designed to reduce forces that cause knee injuries. It is certified as a medical device in the European Union and the US and CE tested and certified as impact protection. The new line also includes knee brace pants, knee brace socks and knee brace sleeves that reinforce the brace’s protection.
All new Leatt helmet designs incorporate ground-breaking 360° Turbine Technology. These turbines are set inside the helmet and are made of 3D molded Armourgel® which stiffens upon impact and deform to absorb both vertical and rotational impact forces. This technology reduces up to 30% of head impact at concussion level and up to 40% of rotational acceleration to the head and brain.
The well-known body protection line now includes eight new product designs, including two for youth.
