If there is a Leatt road/track version it's brand spankin' new and this is the first I've heard of it. Do a search on the CLSB site. There have been a few discussions among the dirt guys here about the Leatt and various other brands that are available. I still have not gotten one but I did try an Alpinestar version that belonged to Brad who runs the Club 57 MX school once. I liked it and when I do buy I think I'll go with an Alpinestars version.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

Yes they had them on display at Barber this year and also let people try them on and use them for one trackday session. Pretty cool but very pricy. Leatt make them.

I'm sure Grasshopper wore one at one of the track days, I thought he gave a review somewhere on here too.

Use the search feature

Do any WSB or MotoGP riders wear these?

I can't recall seeing any of them using it.
