Do leatt braces go bad after certain amount of time?

Recommended Posts

I've always wondered this and never really got an answer. Helmets should be replaced every 5 years weather they've been crashed in or not. Do leatt braces have a similar life span or can they be used as long as there is no damage? I would guess the carbon fiber one would but just a regular club brace? Thanks

Like all safety gear they should be inspected cracks, flaws and what not before every ride.  Just riding around in the gear bag will do a lot more damage than one would think.

Not that I'm aware of, after wrecks check for cracks maybe. The only part I could possibly see wearing is the carbon fiber part that holds the back on, but I'd doubt it.

I would check both of the side hinges on the brace. I've found multiple stress fractures there
