Though they do produce other equipment, Leatt is best known for their safety gear – in particular, their series of Leatt Neck Braces. Joining this already stellar assortment of safety equipment is the Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector, which is manufactured to the same standards and level of quality as all their previous designs. Created specifically for youth competitors and riders of smaller sizes, The Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector offers all the protection you need, a price tag you can afford, and a comfortable-fitting design.
First and foremost, the Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector is designed for maximum compatibility with all of Leatt’s neck braces. This lets you achieve an optimal level of protection – and comfort – with just a minimal investment. The back plate on the Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector is fully articulated for added comfort and increased range of motion, and it even meets CE Safety Approval EN 1621-2 Level 2. Moreover, a layer of highly advanced, SAS-TEC material – meant specifically to aide in impact absorption – is infused into the back protective plate for added durability. The front plate of the Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector is fully certified to CE Safety Approval EN 14021.
As far as the design aesthetics of the Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector, it’s apparent that the unit was designed with maximum comfort in mind. A generous neck cut takes its inspiration from the popular v-neck design of many motocross jerseys, and an oversized, thick layer of padding underneath the front and rear protective plates aides in impact absorption and overall comfort. Extended beyond the coverage offered by the plates, the interior lining even offers an extended area of roost deflection – albeit a minimal amount.
Leatt’s Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector is available in two different junior sizes. Their S/M size is meant to fit riders from 134 to 146 centimeters tall, while their L/XL size is meant to fit riders from 147 to 159 centimeters tall. You can use this gauge to determine what size is right for you. Also, keep in mind that the Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector was specifically designed to offer a close fit, which gives you the option of wearing it either underneath or over your riding jersey – whichever is more comfortable for you and your riding style.
The Leatt Body Vest Adventure Lite Junior Chest Protector has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $129. It is available in one of two basic designs of black or white, but a third variant, the Cage design, sports a fully detailed ribcage design on the front and a complete spine and backbones on the back – which is perfect for those youth riders who really want to make an everlasting impression on their competitors.
