Leatt Corporation Announces Location of Its Production Plant in Cape Town, South Africa

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 24, 2005 -- Leatt Corporation (OTC: LEAT), a Nevada Corporation that develops, sells and distributes the Leatt-Brace™, a Prophylactic Neck Brace system designed to prevent potentially devastating motor sport injuries to the cervical spine (neck), today announced the location of its production plant in Cape Town, South Africa.

Leatt Brace Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd., a subsidiary of Leatt Brace Holdings (Pty) Ltd., has set up production facilities at a 10,764 square foot factory near the Killarney Race Track in Cape Town, South Africa. This production facility has been fitted with equipment which will facilitate the mass manufacture of Leatt-Braces™ as well as provide a location at which to conduct ongoing product testing via a Research and Development company, which will form part of the Leatt Brace Holdings (Pty) Ltd. Group. The R&D company uses a recently purchased computer accident simulation package that can accurately predict neck and brain forces, with and without a brace, and then assist with the final development of a particular brace structure. This cutting-edge technology will assist the Leatt Corporation in seeking to produce state-of-the-art products.

About The Leatt Corporation: The Leatt Corporation is the exclusive global distributor of the Leatt-Brace™, a Prophylactic Neck Brace designed to prevent potentially devastating motor sport injuries to the cervical spine (neck). The manufacture and development of the core products currently take place at the Leatt Corporation's offices in Cape Town, South Africa, which are situated at the headquarters of the Leatt Brace Holdings (Pty) Ltd.

The Leatt-Brace™ is designed to prevent or lessen the severity of spine/neck injuries. The impetus for the project came from Dr. Chris Leatt's medical knowledge, his history as a motorcycle racer and the many neck injuries he has witnessed. The product not only has motor sport applications, but the Company believes that it can be used by anyone wearing a crash helmet as a form of protection. The inventor of the brace, Dr. Chris Leatt, is the President of The Leatt Corporation and is responsible for executing the Company's global strategy.
