Leatt launches its first all-mountain helmet

Published April 26, 2017

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (BRAIN) — Leatt has launched its first helmet that is designed for trail and all-mountain riders. The brand's previous helmets have all been designed for gravity events. 

The new DBX 3.0 AM helmet incorporates Leatt's 360° Turbine Technology from the company's full-face downhill helmet. The technology includes ten turbines that are placed inside the helmet between the EPS and the rider's head. The turbines are made of 3D molded Armourgel that stiffens upon impact to provide protection. The company said the turbines absorb both low speed and rotational impact forces during a fall.

The company said the technology reduces head impact up to 30 percent at concussion level, and up to 40 percent of rotational acceleration to the head and brain.

Each helmet has 18 vents, a magnetic Fidlock buckle, and an adjustable breakaway visor.

Five different colorways are available. It retails for $169.99.
