Sean Macdonald, CEO said, “We promised that the Fusion Vest 2.0 Junior would be available for sale for the upcoming holiday season, and we are excited to announce that they are now in stores across the United States, which is our largest market. “Every parent with a child who participates in extreme sports, including high velocity downhill sports of any kind, has a deep-seated fear that their child might sustain life-altering injuries in a bad spill. When parents buy the Leatt Fusion Vest 2.0 Junior this gift-giving season, they will be giving their children the gift of increased safety, and their children will feel proud to be wearing the same gear as their riding heroes wear.”

The Leatt Fusion Vest 2.0 Junior was designed not only for youth BMX, mountain bike, ATV and motorcycle riders, but also for high velocity downhill sports such as skiing, snowboarding and skateboarding, when used in conjunction with proper head and face protection. It combines the CE certified Leatt-Brace® neck brace, with chest, back and shoulder protection.
Dr. Chris Leatt, Leatt Chairman and head of Research and Development said, “Young motorcycle, bike and ATV riders as well as downhill riders are very susceptible to chest, back and neck injuries. We believe that the Leatt Fusion Vest 2.0 Junior will finally provide them with a single, upper body and neck protection device that will help decrease serious injuries from impacts.”
The vest will be available in several colors, in two highly adjustable sizes, fitting children from approximately 3½ to 5 feet tall, and will retail for $249.
