    Default Leatt Moto recall

    Dear Leatt Customer,

    Attached service bulletin. To date, 2 Leatt MRX Automotive head and neck restraint systems have cracked worldwide. Extensive testing has revealed a material defect with those MRX devices that have been sold to date. In order to ensure this Issue does not re-occur, Leatt is recalling all Leatt MRX Automotive head and neck restraint systems as per the attached service bulletin. We are working urgently on upgraded replacement devices. Please contact Steph Slattery (steph@leatt.com or 661-287-9688) at Leatt USA to return all MRX braces you have purchased for refund, credit, or replacement.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but safety and quality remain our priorities.

    Thanks -Todd

    Good thing they sued the crap out of the makers of the Defnder/Necksgen so they could bring their own competing design to market.

    I think you means HANS?

    According to Jayski HANS alleges Innovative Safety makers of the defNder device have infringed on HANS patents for head and neck restraint devices.

    “We and our licensees have invested significantly in the invention, innovation and continued development of proprietary head and neck restraint technologies,” said Mark Stiles, Chief Executive Officer of HANS Performance Products. “When others make use of our patented technology, we will always take aggressive action to protect our investment, including the enforcement of our legal rights.”

    This deal was nasty...

    I bought one a month ago. I was immediately concerned when I unboxed it. The thing feels flimsy, like I could break it with my hands. It's comfy, but not confidence inspiring.
