Leatt Corporation Announces Completion of Design Specifications for Revised Neck Brace Models


Leatt Corporation (Pink Sheets – LEAT), a Nevada Corporation headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa, that develops, sells and distributes the Leatt-Brace™, a Prophylactic Neck Brace System designed to prevent potentially devastating motor sport injuries to the cervical spine (neck), today announced the completion of the design specifications for the revised MOTO GPX and MOTO R models.

Las Vegas, NV, August 29, 2005 --(PR.com)-- Leatt Corporation (Pink Sheets – LEAT), a Nevada Corporation headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa, that develops, sells and distributes the Leatt-Brace™, a Prophylactic Neck Brace System designed to prevent potentially devastating motor sport injuries to the cervical spine (neck), today announced the completion of the design specifications for the revised MOTO GPX and MOTO R models.

Mark Hopkins, C.E.O. of Leatt Brace Manufacture (Pty) Ltd., the South African manufacturing company for the Leatt Corporation, said “We view the completion of the product design specifications as a major milestone for the company. This is the culmination of many months of research and field trials, where the product has been put through its paces in a ‘real-world’ environment.”

Prototypes of the Leatt-Brace™ have been manufactured and tested. Testing took place at the Eurotype Test Center located at the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS, http://www.dti.gov.za/thedti/sabs.htm) and the brace has been developed in consultation with Motorsport South Africa (MSA, http://www.motorsport.co.za), the governing body of South African motor sport, and National Champion competitors. Production of the retail version of the Leatt-Brace™ will begin on or before November 30th, 2005.

“We have taken all the data from these trials,” added Mark, “and have developed what we believe will become a viable, marketable Prophylactic Neck Brace system.”

The end result is the Leatt-Brace™, 'the helmet for your neck', consisting of the following two models:
• MOTO R (Designed for use in a Car/Kart)
• MOTO GPX (Designed for use while riding an Upright Bike – e.g. Motocross or an Inclined Bike – e.g. Superbike)

These models are available in the following versions Club (fiberglass), Sport (carbon fiber and fiberglass) and Professional (carbon fiber with titanium inserts). All have a Kevlar inner lining.

The Company has received pre-order requests, including pre-order requests from major racing teams.
