Transworld Motocross, an industry publication, noted that the Leatt-Brace design, created by Leatt founder and Chairman, Dr. Chris Leatt, was responsible for popularizing the concept of a neck brace in sports like motocross and that after its launch “the neck brace craze swept through the sport like wildfire…” Dr. Leatt remains the lead consultant for Leatt Lab, the Company’s research and development arm.
“Our neck brace put us on the global sports map and gave us our reputation for technological excellence,” said Leatt CEO Sean Macdonald. “We are obviously very proud of Chris’ vision and engineering expertise, and of our legacy and continued involvement in motocross racing. We would like to thank Transworld Motocross for recognizing Leatt as a pioneer for producing a product and technology that truly was a ‘game changer.’ Our team today is bringing the same kind of energy and innovation invested in the neck brace to a multitude of products for a wide variety of sports, including our latest innovations in lightweight, ventilated helmet designs.”
