Our Junior range has been engineered and fitted specifically to keep our future champions safe. What makes the Leatt-Brace® so unique is its function of directing the crash forces from your helmet to your body and bypassing your neck, which is called Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT®).
The semi-rigid chassis is adjustable enough to fit most riders’ body shape while the structure remains very rigid to help transmit energy during an impact, which is key for reducing neck forces. All Leatt neck braces are also CE tested and certified as Personal Protective Equipment to give you peace of mind.
Leatt makes a tonne of great gear, and as they do this, they also keep the young shredders in mind. In fact, in the case of the new DBX 5.5 Junior Neck Brace, they give them some very special consideration.
They claim the DBX 5.5 to be the most technologically advanced neck brace in the world and the first to be specifically designed for junior riders. For a brace to work, it needs to fit properly.
Leatts 5 way adjustability dials in fit for proper function and comfort.
Other key features are collar bone cuts to keep the brace away from fragile bones, airflow ribs, and an easy emergency release for injured riders.
Leatts home of research and development is located in Cape Town, South Africa. It is here that a team of engineers and designers, as well as Dr Leatt himself, dream-up and test new products as well as persistently improving products already in their line even further.
