Helping to ensure that body armour becomes as every day to MTB lovers as seatbelts are to drivers, the Knee Guard 3DF 5.0 from Leatt is simply the finest leg protection that money can be. Their construction features absorptive foam that draws in energy in the event of a crash, and it’s all made with greater durability thanks to the aramid outer layer, which is fully resistant to abrasions. Pre-curved to give you the best possible fit, the 3DF 5.0 is also made from breathable fabric to help prevent you from overheating. The 5.5 edition of the Leatt Body Protector has been refined following years of experience at the brand’s lab in South Africa. Here Dr. Leatt and his team of engineers and designers conceptualise and test new products and constantly strive to improve existing products even further. The facility features state-of-the-art testing and prototyping equipment that enables the team to take a product from conceptualization, through testing, all the way to pre-production prototypes, and it shows. Finally, an elastic Velcro strap helps to maintain a solid fit against your body, and features easy pull suede finger tabs. Leatt really have done it again, and it’s time you found out just how safe you can feel as you’re shredding things up. It also works perfectly with any Leatt brace on the market.
