Leatt is a brand that originates from the city of Cape Town, South Africa. It was founded in 2011 by Dr. Christopher Leatt. The brand became popular for its revolutionary solution of protecting the neck during a crash with the Leatt-Brace® neck protector. The Leatt-Brace is a neck protector designed to help reduce neck injuries in sports where full face helmets are used, such as downhill mountain biking and all motorsports. The brand's offerings have since expanded dramatically, and today you'll find products like knee and elbow pads (3DF Hybrid, Airflex, Contour), chest protectors (3DF Airfit, Airflex), helmets (AllMtn, Trail, Gravity, DBX Enduro), shoes, apparel, and much more.
