Leatt STX Brace: Sportbike Neck Protection

Motorcycle Neck Protection

The Leatt Corporation has been the U.S. leader in motorsports neck protection since its release in 2006, with the exception of the street and sport market.

Due to body positioning and gear selection, the current GPX models have not been widely worn by the street and sport riding community.

Understanding the need for neck protection, for all motorcycle riders, the Leatt Corporation has developed the STX Brace, the world’s only sportbike specific neck brace.

The STX brace has a radically different design, to accommodate a speed hump or back protector, which are standard equipment for street and sport riders.

Riders will also immediately notice lower front and rear table assemblies, which provide ample range of motion, while in a full-tuck or looking through a turn. The STX Brace will be available to the retail customer April 2011; the STX is offered in three sizes, two color options, and will retail for $395-$410.

Leatt Corporation is the only neck brace company that has a testing facility to properly design and develop neck protection products. With a medical doctor, Mr. Chris Leatt, and a team of biomedical engineers on staff, you can be confident that the STX brace, and all Leatt products, are produced with rider safety in mind.

Phil Davy (Leatt Corporation General Manager) says: "Leatt has sold well over half a million motorcycle neck braces and is proud of how many potential injuries we’ve saved off road riders from. We are now very excited to be offering the street riders a specifically designed neck brace and hope to add many more riders to the list of saved by Leatt motorcyclists."

The Leatt STX Brace will be unveiled at the Indianapolis Dealer Expo at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 18, booth #2017, and on display for the remainder of the weekend.
