Motocrossgear.com tested and evaluated the Leatt Chest Protector Adventure Pro on the basis of looks, comfort and safety before concluding it deserves "a solid 10 out of 10."
"Comfort is not something that is usually taken into account by manufacturers, but Leatt went out of their way to make sure that riders will be comfortable and actually put these protectors to use. When it comes to materials, Leatt has always been well-known for quality and the Adventure Pro is no exception. If you want a chest protector that is comfortable enough to really wear and will protect you, Leatt Adventure Pro Chest Protector is just that," concluded Motocrossgear.com in the evaluation currently posted on the website. The site also noted that "Leatt has really broken the mold with the brand new Adventure Pro in ways that are going to change the market forever."
"We make a serious effort to design and incorporate the best and most advanced technology into our products, so this test score by Motocrossgear.com is a great confirmation of the value of our efforts," said Sean Macdonald, CEO of Leatt Corporation. "We make comfort an important part of our design because many riders won't wear a chest protector because they aren't comfortable. As for safety, that is the leading feature of all our products and we use the highest rated materials on the market. We are very pleased to be recognized by Motocrossgear.com for the outstanding work of our entire team."
