“RiderDown is as committed to rider safety and education as we are to helping injured riders up,” says RiderDown President Bruce Vermeulen. “As such, we are very excited to announce that we have been selected to be an authorized dealer of the Leatt-Brace, starting immediately. This brace has set a new safety standard for the sport of Motocross and off road riding, and RiderDown feels it is the perfect complement to our mission.”
“As a non-profit organization our arrangement with the Leatt Corporation is unique and this has become an important tool in our fundraising efforts” says Vermeulen. “Spinal cord injuries can be devastating on many fronts with long term consequences and far reaching implications. It is our goal to work towards reducing their occurrence in our sport as well as providing assistance to riders and their families when they do happen.”
“We are extremely pleased that the Leatt-Brace™ MOTO GPX is in production,” said Dr. Chris Leatt, President and C.E.O of the Leatt Corporation. He further added, “The next step is to get our other models of this brace into production and in so doing offer all motor sports competitors, what we believe to be, a superior form of neck protection.”
Since its introduction into the United States in 2006, the Moto GPX has changed the way motorcycle riders look at protection. After David Bailey's “Stand for Something” video, safety became the number one thing on the motorcycle communities minds. Never before has this industry seen such an acceptance of a product like the Leatt-Brace Moto GPX. Dr. Chris Leatt, and his team, created a product that has already saved the lives of many, many riders.
