WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that
stand out with the Leatt Fusion Youth Vest 2.0.
(1) Safety. The Fusion Vest 2.0 uses Leatt 3DF AirFit
foam technology to create a comfortable upper-body
protector. Leatt’s side-entry, Velcro design means there
is no gap in the front protective plate, further helping
protect the rider’s vulnerable chest area. The ingenious
design also engineers in a fracture point on the rear thoracic strut that is designed to snap off in an emergency.
The specially designed collarbone cutout section reduces
contact potential with one of the most fragile bones in
your body—the collarbone. The cutout allows for free
movement of the arms without the collarbone coming in
contact with the brace.
( 2) Neck-brace compatible. No need to worry, the
Leatt neck brace is built into the vest! This two-in-one
design provides quick entry and exit.
( 3) Sizing. The Fusion 2.0 vest is available in small/
medium and large/extra large. With the Velcro side
entry, it give lots of room for customizing the perfect fit
for any size junior rider. Kids who are 3 foot 5 to 4 foot
1 should wear a small/medium. Those between 4 foot 1
and 4 foot 11 should opt for the large/extra large.
( 4) Protection. The vest and neck brace are CE
certified. Although parents want their little racers
wearing the most protection possible, our mini test riders
opted to take the shoulder cups off for improved comfort
and a less bulky look.
( 5) Options. Leatt’s number one concern is safety, but
they also have fashion sense. The Fusion Vest 2.0 comes
in white, black, red, orange and green.
WHAT’S THE SQUAWK? We would like to see the
option for a back number plate for racing.
Leatt has raised the bar with the Fusion
Youth Vest 2.0. With the Fusion 2.0, a small
rider gets a full coverage vest and neck brace
in a single package.
