    I broke my C1 C2 and C3 in 2004. As you can see in my profile photo I have a 3" titanium screw going through my odontoid bone. I should be dead or paralyzed. If I had a Leatt on I could have avoided this injury. Now I always wear my Leatt.

    Great video, but please address the known spinal injuries that were caused by the thoracic piece resting on the spine. This is on the minds of many riders. Plus, Atlas addressed the concerns by placing their rear load pieces away from the spine.

    Where is the load on the upper body in your testing Phil? What you have just shown is the same as it has always been. In your next few videos, please show us how the dummy reacts when he hits the ground free falling as it would do in a typical motorcycle crash. I look forward to seeing your results, specifically on the T-Spine and sternum. Typical crashes this year that were filmed were Tyla Rattray, and Malcolm Stewart.
