Leatt Body Protector 5.5 Gives Maximum Protection

The Leatt Body Protector 5.5 is the ultimate all in one upper body armor. When coupled with a Leatt DBX neck brace and full-face helmet, there isn't anything else on the market that can add the level of protection offered by the Body Protector 5.5. When put through Leatt's rigorous impact testing, it scored an incredible 25, otherwise known as a perfect score. 

What we found most surprising about the 5.5, is even with how beefy it looks, it doesn't feel very encumbering. It gives you all the freedom and range of movement necessary to perform at a high level. It's also very easy to integrate with your Leatt DBX neck brace, which we find critical. 

The Body Protector 5.5 has hard shell plating along the chest, ribs, back, flank, shoulders and even arms but combines the hard shell with soft impact foam for incredible comfort. 

With a piece of gear as all encompassing as the Leatt 5.5 Body Protector, you'd expect to get rather hot under all that protection. Leatt has done a great job combating that worry with MoistureCool and AirMesh wicking fabrics and also 53 venting slots for excess airflow. 

About Leatt

Sometimes it takes a tragedy to create change. Such was the case in South Africa in 2001 when Dr. Chris Leatt, a medical doctor and motorcycle rider, went to a racetrack with his son who himself had just begun to ride. There, Dr. Leatt witnessed the death of another rider, Alan Selby, from suspected neck injuries. Dr. Leatt was so shaken by the incident that he made it his mission to develop a device that would go a substantial way toward preventing this type of fatal injury in the future. After three years of research, development, and testing, Dr. Leatt introduced his first Leatt-Brace. However, it would be another two years before the Leatt-Brace would make it to market on a large scale. Today, Leatt-Brace is a worldwide leader in neck protection for extreme sports. Dr. Leatt likes to say the Leatt Brace is "a helmet for your neck." Designers and engineers in the Leatt laboratory in South Africa have expanded their reach to high-technology protective armor that meets varying needs of downhill mountain bikers, BMX bikers, and skiers and snowboarders.
