Leatt Corporation Announces Collaboration With BMW
Leatt Corporation (LEAT.PK - News), a Nevada,
USA Corporation headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa,
that develops, sells and distributes the Leatt-Brace(TM),
a Neck Brace system designed to help prevent potentially
devastating motor sport injuries to the cervical spine
(neck), today announced that it will be collaborating
with BMW and KTM on a cervical spine protection system
for the sports motorcyclist.
BMW Motorrad and KTM are seeking to develop an adequate
system of protection for the neck, the cervical spine,
the spinal cord and the collarbone in the event of a
serious motorcycle fall. Leatt-Brace(TM) prototypes
have undergone extensive testing at BMW's testing
facility in Munich, Germany. The Leatt Corporation
believes that a neck protection system of this kind
will benefit not only the enduro motorcyclist and
rally biker, but also the motorcyclist in everyday
traffic situations, and will represent a great step
forward in the area of passive safety. According to
BMW Motorrad, testing of the brace has produced
excellent results. Consequently, experts at BMW
Motorrad Accident Research regard the prototype
as having a huge safety potential.
"Motorcycle sport should be safer and we wish to
make a contribution in achieving this", explains
Dr. Herbert Diess, Head of BMW Motorrad, while
commenting on the decision to dedicate a substantial
degree of attention to this subject. He continues:
"The concept is extremely promising. If this system
continues to live up to our expectations, I can well
envisage us putting it into production."
"I am very pleased with the relationship that is
developing between BMW, KTM and the Leatt Corporation,
the global distributor of the Leatt- Brace(TM),"
said, Dr. Leatt, C.E.O. of the Leatt Corporation. He
added: "With all of us working together collectively,
I feel that the brace will find its way into the
market much faster and I have hope that lives will
be saved sooner, rather than later, as a direct result
of this collaboration."
There can be no assurances that the foregoing testing
will lead to any formal business relationship between
BMW/BMW Mottorrad and the Leatt Corporation or between
KTM and the Leatt Corporation, or that the developments
described herein will produce any revenues or profits
for the Leatt Corporation.

exclusive global distributor of the Leatt-Brace(TM), a
