We have launched a new Heritage Video Series, to tell the story behind how we got started and how we got to be where we are today, as a head-to-toe brand.
Previous episodes 1 & 2 , Origins and Neck Brace told the story of how South African doctor Chris Leatt and his 4 year old son, witnessed a tragic motorcycle accident. This event brought to light the apparent lack of neck protection for motorcycle riders. Dr Chris Leatt, keen to see his son ride motorcycles without the fear of serious, life threatening injuries, set out on a mission to invent the neck brace.
The road to invention was one of problem solving, testing and setting new industry standards for rider safety.
“The DNA of Leatt is really one of innovation, where we look at what is required within the industry and try and try and produce an answer to a problem. Rather than just take a product and just reinvent it to add to our product mix.” – Dr Chris Leatt
Released today, episode 3 will focus on how our body protection range also began as a problem solving exercise and has evolved over time, continuously innovating and producing the most protective yet comfortable products.
