Leatt - 5.5 Pro HD Chest Protector

The 5.5s are Leatt’s more protective line of chest protectors. The Chest Protector 5.5 Pro HD is the Top Of The Line version of the 5.5 chest protector line. Specifically designed to meet the highest safety approvals for front, back and shoulder impact protection. But we didn’t stop there. The Pro HD has added Hardshell flank protection lined with 3DF foam. This flank protection overlaps with the front and back plates creating an integrating, multilayer protection area over some of your most vulnerable parts.

Three dimensional design with eight, multi layer, articulating plates, for a great fit.  It has also been designed to integrate perfectly with all Leatt neck braces although it works equally well without a neck brace. Exclusive FlipFit front and rear, movable, plates allow your neck brace to fit under the protector, for outside the jersey use, or wear the protector under your jersey and your brace can still fit over the top. BraceOn™ strap system attaches the protector to the neck brace yet provides independent movement of body, brace and chest protector. The 5.5 line of protectors are the best fitting, most protective line of hard shell protectors available today.

  • The back of protector meets the highest back impact CE approval, CE EN 1621-2, Level 2
  • The front of protector meets the highest front impact CE approval, prEN 1621-3, Level 2
  • The shoulder protectors are impact tested and CE certified to CE EN 1621-1
  • Integrating, multilayer flank protection area
  • Removable, bio-foam upper arm roost guards
  • Extremely high impact testing results achieved by use of Leatt’s new 3DF foam in front and back
  • Fits over or under the jersey
  • 47 ventilation slots for maximum cooling
  • Perforated 3DF foam helps air flow
  • Hard shell outer shield made of High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE)
  • Adjustable over the shoulder straps help insure a great fit
  • Adult size fits riders from approx. 70 to 85kg (150 to 190 lbs)
  • XXL size fits riders approx. 85 to 105kg (190 to 240lbs)

Best CP I have!

  • Comfortable
  • Protection
  • Well Made

Cons

  • Tad Warm

Best Uses

  • Off-road

Comments about Leatt - 5.5 Pro HD Chest Protector:

Used for off-road trail riding. I didn't buy it for roost, I wanted some extra protection for when I hit the ground. First day I had it went down in a unseen ditch. It did it's job beautifully! I hit real hard, and I truly feel it saved me from injury. To me that moment was when it paid for itself! I do agree it is warmer then my old CP's but not enough to be bad. I didn't really notice it being heavier. I like the way the shoulder protection is on the shoulder, my old CP's prevented how far I could turn my head, but have no problem with the Leatt. I was able to customize this to fit me better, it's very comfortable, and superior protection. Buy it, you won't regret this purchase!

Big, Hot, A Bit Much

Pros

  • serious protection

Cons

  • bulky
  • Hot

Best Uses

    Comments about Leatt - 5.5 Pro HD Chest Protector:

    I race motocross, but was going to start doing some desert racing and thought I needed more protection. I bought this because it says it can fit UNDER a jersey. It can, in the same way a Chrysler 300 could fit under a jersey - if you have a big enough jersey. You might as well just wear some hockey pads, that's what it looks like under a jersey. Also they say it is "vented." Venting is a word Leatt looked up, wrote down, and forgot to actually do to this thing. It is hot. If you are remotely fast in motocross this is a NO/GO. It is going to work for slow old men in cold climates doing enduro races. It does offer serious protection, but the cost in body heat may not be worth it. Also the shoulder pad adjusters are a terrible design.

      The best chest protector for enduro

      By SerS

      from Lipetsk, Russia

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Leatt - 5.5 Pro HD Chest Protector:

      As for me, Leatt made a great product, wich is really a new standart of chest protection. 5.5 Pro Hd have a sandwich structure (plactic cover and 3D Foam inside), it provides allaround protection: front + ribs + back - and it do it perfectly in all sides, for example, ribs cover laps your body without any holes, back protector long enough, shoulder caps fits tightly to your shoulders. Of course, It have full compatibility with Leatt neck brace.
      Another side - becouse of its construction, it seems a bit bulky and may be have some problems with ventilation to use it in a hot weather (I don`t know about it really - now is winter).
