Leatt - C-Frame Pro Carbon Knee Brace (Right)
Dr. Leatt filed his first neck-brace related patent in 2003 and went on to found the Leatt Corporation in 2007. In less than a decade, Leatt has become one of the leaders in the body armor and protective gear industry. Leatt manufactures some of the most innovative and thoughtful protective gear, inspired by the top medical professionals and biomechanical engineers in the industry. Since the introduction of the acclaimed Leatt-Brace, Leatt has expanded and diversified their product catalog. The Leatt Corporation continues to release new products that further establish themselves as the industry leader in quality, safety and performance. The GPX line of motorsports gear, body armor and apparel is the newest line of products from Leatt. Included in this release is the brand new Leatt Knee Brace C-Frame Pro Carbon. This is one of the most sophisticated motocross knee braces on the market.
The Leatt knee brace provides flexion support for the knee to help stave off injuries. The defining feature of the Pro Carbon is the hyperextension limiting C-Frame chassis. It is designed to prevent the rider from hyperextending the knee that could result in tearing the ACL, MCL, or the meniscus. The knee protection does this by preventing the knee from extending past a certain point, chosen by the rider. The brace can be tuned to 10°, 15°, 20° and 25° of limitation depending on the riders’ preference. The knee protection is also is engineered with a hyper flexion stopper to further reduce the likelihood of a meniscus injury. The brace is built to be comfortable to wear and its low profile inner allows the rider to feel in control of the bike. The Leatt Knee Brace C-Frame Pro Carbon is CE tested and certified as impact protection. It is also certified as a medical device.
Not only does the knee brace provide flexion protection, it also provides knee protection against impacts. The Leatt knee brace is a knee guard and knee brace all in one. The hard shell of the C-Frame Pro Carbon is designed by biomechanical engineers to provide the best knee protection, while still allowing a natural range of motion in the knee. The C-Frame is more protective than other braces in its class because of its unique cage design. It is made out of a strong carbon fiber frame. The knee brace is engineered with a three-point force distribution (the knee, femur and tibia) to mitigate the force of impacts across a larger area. Unlike most motocross knee braces, the Pro Carbon is engineered with built in fracture points. When excessive pressure is applied to the shin plate or the thigh plate, the brace is designed to break so the brace does not cause further injury to the rider. This brace is truly a marvel in the world of knee protection. Note: motocross knee braces cannot protect against all types of injuries.
