Leatt – Knee & Shin Guard Dual Axis
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 are the brand new Leatt Knee and Shin Guards Dual Axis. These are some of the most protective dirt bike knee guards currently available.
The Leatt Knee and Shin Guards offer top of the line protection from falls and impacts. That is because of the double layer design. The outer layer is made out of a hard protective shell, while the inner layer is constructed out of 3DF AirFit impact foam. This high tech foam is soft and flexible when unstressed, affording more flexibility than a hard shell would. The foam hardens quickly upon impact. Not only does the foam provide excellent shin and knee protection, it keeps the rider comfortable. 3DF AirFit foam is a perforated and moisture wicking material. The foam draws moisture away from the skin where it can evaporate, which has a cooling effect. The hard outer shell of the knee and shin guards is engineered with multiple ventilation panels that facilitate better evaporation. These dirt bike knee guards make the rider more comfortable, while providing unbeatable protection.
The Leatt Knee and Shin Guards have many other features that make them a great option. The Dual Axis guards are CE certified as impact knee protection. They has been given an in-house protection rating of twenty-five points, making it one of the highest scores in the entire product line. The dual axis guards are engineered using a 3D design. Because of this, the knee and shin guards are not interchangeable between knees. The dirt bike knee guards are specifically crafted to fit the corresponding leg. The guards have dual axes on the knees which afford a rider the needed knee mobility while on or off the bike. The shin guards are very low profile. In fact, they are low profile enough to be tucked comfortably inside of the riders’ boots. Lugging heavy body armor to and from the track can be cumbersome. Despite providing so shin and knee protection, the combined weight for the pair is less than two pounds!

Comments about Leatt - Dual Axis Knee & Shin Guard:
I really like the dual axis hinges. Comfortable for all day wear yet very protective. Obviously it's not a ligament brace, but has done great on some really hard impacts.
