Purposely designed by Athletes for Athletes
CAPE TOWN, South Africa, (August 17, 2020) – Leatt Corporation (OTCQB: LEAT), a leading developer and marketer of protective equipment and ancillary products for many forms of sports, especially extreme high-velocity sports, today announced the launch of the Aaron Chase 3.0 Flat Shoe, a signature, high performance model shoe created with Chase, a rider, course designer and legend in the world of mountain biking.
The Aaron Chase model is the newest design in the Leatt shoe line first introduced in March and created by the Leatt Lab to provide ultimate protection and better bike control, freeing riders to improve their skills. Dr. Chris Leatt, the founder and Chairman of Leatt, discussed the design and engineering of the shoe on a recent episode of the Downtime Podcast, an industry program.
“I wanted a shoe that was perfect for riding, digging and everything in between,” Chase said. “When Leatt came to me with their new shoe range it was pretty clear for me that the 3.0 was going to be the base for my signature shoe because it ticks all the boxes.”
Among the features in the signature Aaron Chase Flat Shoe is the specialized sole manufactured from Leatt’s unique RideGrip rubber compound for ultimate bike control in all weather conditions. Other features include ankle padding, ventilation, a waffle grip pattern in the sole, and compression laces.
“We set out on a mission to design the ultimate mountain biking shoe, especially for flat pedal and clipless riders, and consumers love the look and feel of these Aaron Chase shoes,” said Sean Macdonald, Leatt Chief Executive Officer. “The response in just the opening two weeks of the launch has been fantastic and we are seeing strong demand for all of our uniquely designed shoes. This positive industry response is a validation of the hard work spent by our entire team for more than a decade in creating a full ‘head-to-toe’ MTB brand.”
Aaron Chase is an MTB pioneer of the all-terrain slopestyle movement that reclaims the creative spirit of mountain biking. He is also an editor, director and filmmaker, and an innovator of the way people ride, and the way riding courses and bikes are built. Chase has won the Red Bull Bike Battle and Red Bull District Ride.
