Global protective gear and apparel company, Leatt has launched a new Heritage Video Series, to tell the story behind how Leatt started and how they got to be where they are today, as a head-to-toe brand.

Episode 2: Neck Braces

We witness a moving and inspirational story of how and why Leatt came to be in In Episode 1. However, the problem solving continues in episode 2 as it explores how the neck brace model has evolved and advanced over the years.

“So, I’ve got no qualms with taking a product off the market or just terminating its design and iterative process – if we believe that, that product is not safe and you wouldn’t put it on your child.” – Dr Chris Leatt

The Leatt neck brace is a product, designed to reduce the risk of severe neck injuries. This episode of the Heritage Video Series illustrates the challenges of introducing a product into the market with no international safety standards and no prior testing or design data. Starting from scratch, Dr Chris Leatt and the biomedical engineers at Leatt managed to create a piece of personal safety equipment which has now been proven to reduce the risk of the severe neck injuries by up to 89%* (*EMS Action sports Study). Furthermore, this episode once and for all busts the reoccurring myth that neck braces are responsible for collarbone fractures. Find out why, straight from Dr Chris Leatt.

Coming March 15th 2021, Episode 3 will focus on Leatt’s Body Protection Range. The Heritage Video Series has 4 Episodes, so make sure you subscribe to Official Leatt YouTube channel to follow the story.
