    The 5.5’s are Leatt’s More protective line of chest protectors. The Chest Protector 5.5 Pro HD is the top of the line version of the 5.5 chest protector line. Specifically designed to meet the highest safety approvals for front, back and shoulder impact protection. But we didn’t stop there. The Pro HD has added hardshell flank protection lined with 3DF foam. This flank protection overlaps with the front and back plates creating an integrating, multilayer protection area over some of your most vulnerable parts. Three dimensional design with eight, multi-layer, articulating plates, for a great fit. It has also been designed to integrate perfectly with all Leatt neck braces although it works equally well without a neck brace. Exclusive FlipFit front and rear, movable, plates allow your neck brace to fit under the protector, for outside the jersey use, or wear the protector under your jersey and your brace can still fit over the top. BraceOn™ strap system attaches the protector to the neck brace yet provides independent movement of body, brace and chest protector. The 5.5 line of protectors are the best fitting, most protective line of hard shell protectors available today.
  • The back of protector meets the highest back impact CE approval, CE EN 1621-2, Level 2.
  • The front of protector meets the highest front impact CE approval, prEN 1621-3, Level 2.
  • The shoulder protectors are impact tested and CE certified to CE EN 1621-1.
  • Integrating, multilayer flank protection area.
  • Removable, bio-foam upper arm roost guards.

Surprised how comfortable

Comments On Jul 19, 2015:I was really surprised how comfortable this chest proctor felt. I was concerned about the rib protector feeling constricting , but I discovered the rib protector actually held the chest protector in place and it felt like I wasn't wearing a chest protector at all. No bouncing or sliding around like my other chest protects, including another Leatt model that I was using. I really forgot I was wearing it. Picking up the chest protector, it feels heavy, but really the weight is unnoticeable when wearing. Again, very surprised. The should pad connection system could use some work. I see some concerns of longevity, but the sliding connection system does allow the should pads to move into a natural position and were not an issue when riding. Heat was my other concern, but on my first ride it was around 88 degrees with very high humidity. I was really surprised how comfortable the chest protector felt. Price could be cheaper and I hope the should pad mounting holds up, but for now I'm very happy with the protector.

One tough roost protector

Comments On Jul 08, 2015:A little warm due to added protection but definitely worth the money

Awesome torso protection. Shoulder won't stay on.

Comments On Jul 05, 2015:This was exactly what I was looking for in side-rib protection. As others have stated a little warm but that doesn't really bother me even living in Arizona. I would give this 5 starts+ if it wasn't for the almost comical way the shoulders detach from the slightest of things. I've even had them pop off riding along and hitting nothing at all. There I'd be with a group riding single track and then my shoulder cup would suddenly just be flapping in the wind. "Here we go again", pull over, remove helmet to see over neck brace, and hook the plastic piece back into the slot. If I'm lucky a rider behind me will stop and clip it back in for me. I've looked up this problem on the internet and apparently Leatt is aware of the issue and have an update to fix it. I've emailed them with pictures but after 4 days I have yet to get a response so hopefully I'll hear something soon. From the latest product pictures I see, it looks like they have some straps going across now instead of the single clip on top. I hope this in an improvement. I understand mistakes can happen but I cannot see how this shoulder attachment design was ever approved for production. Common Leatt, you can do better.

tough as nails

Comments On Jun 24, 2015:I don't ever ride without wearing this no matter the weather. I'm a vet rider and can't afford to have little injuries ruin my riding day. This deflector completely covers your ribs and spine and come with excellent shoulder cups. The fit is modular and with a little bit of time can be adjusted perfectly. You are wearing body armor it reduces airflow a lot which can make it pretty hot on summer days in the desert. After getting it adjusted well I never notice I have it on when I ride. Nothing sticks out or rubs or does anything weird. Tipovers are a pleasure if you are wearing this.

Great product - EXCEPT shoulder pads

Comments On Apr 23, 2015:Love how it all works with my neck brace. Easy to custom fit with the adjustable straps etc. Easy to forget you have it on. Just an over all great product for core protection with a brace.
If RIB protection is a big part of your purchase decision, this is a great product.
REALLY bummed about the shoulder pads though. Both mine and another guy I ride with. The little rubber tabs that hold the shoulder pads on basically pull right out of the cloth slits that holds them in place. We have tried extra zip ties in behind the cloth but nothing seems to hold these on. As of now - the cloth "slits" are basically shot/stretched out beyond use.
We are going to try and permanently attach these somehow - as they are an important reason I purchased this item. (shoulders and ribs!!) Would be great if they came up with a retro-fit for this part of the protector.
IF shoulder protection is a key to your purchase - hold off on this item until they get this part fixed!

Additional Comments On Jun 10, 2015:Leatt WILL warranty this unit for the shoulder pads falling off. Just email them etc . COOL. BUT I have to spend another $40 + shipping it though. Not sure if I have to pay to get another unit sent out either? it is not very clear in the paperwork.
So pretty bummed right now with the whole gig / price / 1st version hassle. Did not expect to be a beta tester.
Had a good crash this past weekend - both shoulders hurt.. no shoulder pads...may have helped? maybe not, who knows. Thinking of tossing the whole darn thing and looking elsewhere! :-( Try one on before you buy it!!

great body protection terrible shoulder pads

Comments On Apr 24, 2015:Love this gear for the body protection and amazing integration with my leatt neck brace. Neck brace is locked in place on roost guard which makes for ultimate neck and inner shoulder protection. Not too hot for desert rides and great torso protection. Shoulder pads are a joke. Pulled out of vest while putting garmet on. Stuffed them back in place and they routinely fall out. Very poor design. If you are looking for dependable outer shoulder protection look elsewhere. Will be contacting Leatt to try and resolve shoulder pad shortcomings. 5 stars if the shoulder pads stayed on and in place.

Leatt Brace 5.5 Pro HD Roost Deflector

Comments On Jan 29, 2015:Pros: - The integration with neck brace is great along with the options of running it under and over jackets and jerseys. Quality construction. Good rib and side protection. Good comfort on the torso. Cons: - Shoulder pads need to be better attached to the body section, they come unhooked very easily. Also the tend to slide around to the backside of the upper arms. Would like to see bigger and more protective shoulder and arm pads with an easier system of attachment, removal and articulation.

Additional Comments On Mar 23, 2015:Cons: With riding in it for a few months now the design of the shoulder and arm pads is real frustrating. They come off when putting on, the pop off while riding, they slide down the arm or move to the back of the arm/shoulder.
- I have a hard time believing that they actually did any product testing before releasing.
- I have all integration point wrapped in duct tape to keep it in place.

Nice product

Comments On Feb 15, 2015:Except for the shoulder pads,this is a 5 start product. There is no adjustment for the pads and they hang down too far on my shoulders.
It runs large. I'm 6' tall and weigh 235. For the chest protector to fit correctly,I have it adjusted as small as it will go.
I'm guessing this thing would fit a guy 260+

Worth the money

Comments On Feb 06, 2015:You get what you pay for. This chest and back protector replaced my Fox airframe and does the job much better. Expensive yes but don't cheap out on safety gear. EVER. this chest protector is much cheaper than going to the hospital. My only complaint is that the plastic strap that attaches the right shoulder piece to the back of the protector slipped out once causing the shoulder piece to flap around a bit until I pulled over to put it back in. Only happened once though.
