2018 Leatt Line: High Tech Helmets

So much science goes into Leatt helmets, you’d expect it to come with a degree!


For starters, there’s Leatt’s category-defining 360° Turbine Technology. Molded from an energy-absorbing material that instantly hardens on impact – the discshaped implants, strategically positioned inside the helmet, dissipate rotational, direct and deflective impact energy, resulting in radically reduced head and brain injury.
It’s the wisest safety choice the no-holds barred Thrill seeker could make.

THE SPECS 5.5 and 6.5 HELMETS


360° TURBINE TECHNOLOGY – Reduces up to 30% of head impact at concussion level – Reduces up to 40% of rotational acceleration to head and brain
REDUCED OUTER SHELL VOLUME A 10% smaller shell transfers up to 20% less rotational forces to the neck, resulting in a significant decrease of rotational acceleration to the head and brain at impact, and proving that a smaller shell is a safer shell. Multi-density, V-shaped impact foam is molded directly to the outer shell. More cushioning, less surface area – a total win for the rider giving it their all.
NEW DRI-LEX® LINER Moisture wicking, breathable, anti-odor and washable inner liner


OPTIMAL NECK BRACE AND HYDRATION COMPATIBILITY For your convenience, the helmet will pair perfectly with your neck brace and hydration system
MAXIMIZED VENTILATION Effective even at very low speeds
VISOR WITH BREAKAWAY FUNCTION AND EMERGENCY CHEEK PAD REMOVAL Adds to safety of helmet and offers rotational reduction in a crash

Leatt helmets facilitate all-round ventilation – even at lower speeds. Not only are these helmets one of the most ventilated on the market, but each vent is DOT tested and approved, making it one of the safest vented helmets. DOT testing is done with a heavy metal spike, that when dropped from ten feet would completely penetrate any part of the human body. We got to see a helmet that was tested and how it was done, the only damage made by the massive steel spike was a small dent in the outer shell.

At the heart of rider protection, all Leatt helmets are put through vigorous R&D to ensure that everything scientifically possible is done to maximize head and brain protection.
360° Turbine Technology is one of the resultant safety features. Molded from an energy-absorbing material that instantly hardens on impact – the disc-shaped implants, strategically positioned inside the helmet, dissipate rotational, direct and deflective impact energy – resulting in radically reduced head and brain injury.
Go further and harder than you’ve ever gone before!

The GPX 4.5 Helmet is a more affordable price point with almost no difference in weight between the more expensive models. However you do lose two of the vents when you step down, which the graphics clearly make up for. The 4.5 does not compromise safety in anyway, you still get the same high tech protection as the 5.5 and 6.5

THE SPECS 4.5 HELMET

INJECTED POLYMER COMPOUND SHELL IN THREE SIZES
360° TURBINE TECHNOLOGY – Reduces up to 30% of head impact at concussion level – Reduces up to 40% of rotational acceleration to head and brain
REDUCED OUTER SHELL VOLUME A 10% smaller shell, transfers up to 20% less rotational forces to the neck, head and brain. Multi-density, V-shaped impact foam molded directly to the outer shell significantly reduces G-forces transferred to the head and brain


NEW DRI-LEX® LINER Moisture wicking, breathable, anti-odor and washable inner liner
OPTIMAL NECK BRACE AND HYDRATION COMPATIBILITY For your convenience, the helmet will pair perfectly with your neck brace and hydration system
MAXIMIZED VENTILATION Effective even at very low speeds
VISOR WITH BREAKAWAY FUNCTION AND EMERGENCY CHEEK PAD REMOVAL Adds to safety of helmet and offers rotational reduction in a crash
