LEATT IS PROUD TO PARTNER WITH ENDURO LEGEND AND ICONIC ADVENTURE RIDER, CHRIS BIRCH
“I have been using Leatt protective products for many years but I am happy the time has come to partner with the team head-to-toe. I look forward to my time in the Leatt family, being involved in exciting projects and working closely with the product developers of the future products.” – Chris Birch.
Chris Birch has had a life-long love for motocyles. His passion has led him to win 8 NZL national enduro championships, he is a 3-time winner of the Roof of Africa, and he has stood on the podium at Red Bull Romaniacs several times - including the top box in 2010. As many riders are currently in the Arabian desert, it’s fitting to mention that Chris is New Zealand’s most successful Dakar Rally competitor. Today, Chris runs a very successful riding school, Say No To Slow. Aside from online masterclasses, he hosts clinics all over the world helping riders refine their skills and feel confident about riding.
Leatt released news about their brand new adventure range during EICMA 2023. While Leatt is known for its offroad products, all Leatt adventure apparel is Class AA rated, making them suitable for riders who prefer tarmac to dirt. The South African brand assures, however, that the product is still adventure-seeking at heart, designed to meet the demands of the most adventurous gravel seeking rider.
Straight away I feel at home in the Leatt adventure gear. It is strong, safe and comfortable. Living in New Zealand, we need gear that can adapt - and this multi-functional gear inspires confidence to go ride when you don’t quite know what is out there or what might happen. – Chris Birch
