The two pictures above right are of an earlier BMW branded version for comparison. Leatt are continuously developing and improving this product
The emergency release system is easy to use as is the one opening and locking mechanism on the brace which makes putting it on and taking it off a breeze. Leatt have also ensured that the brace can now be adjusted without tools and the rubber bearings allow fine-tuning and angle adjustment of the brace for a good fit. The rubber bearings come in a number of degree stops ranging from 0-15 degrees in increments of 5 degrees. The brace comes in two sizes S/M and L/XL
I found my range of helmet mobility to be very good with the lower profile of the 6.5 but not so much so that I felt a compromise on safety by not having the helmet strike the rim stops at an appropriate angle which is an essential safety feature. Overall I’m impressed with the product’s feel, functionality and weight. Score? WM
We give this product five stars!
