Leatt’s uniqueness is something that initially attracted me to the brand yet I’ve been really impressed with the quality and design innovation of their products. With roots stemming from neck braces, Leatt’s commitment to protective gear is looking even more impressive for 2018. The 2018 Leatt line has some really exciting new additions for the trail oriented rider. Heading up the new products is a new trail helmet with impact/concussion reducing turbine technology (similar to MIPS), DBX 1.0 slim fitting lightweight kit and 6.0 knee guard.
Here’s a little product video to wet the whistle.

I’ve really been liking my Leatt DBX 3.0 and reviewed it earlier this year: http://crankjoy.com/review-leatt-dbx-3-0-mountian-helmet/
The helmet is packed with technology and features that easily put it the top of my favorites, especially at $169. The new DBX 2.0 helmet shares some of those features in a very competitively priced package that in my opinion looks like it should cost much more. Here are the complete details from Leatt:
DBX 2.0 HELMET DETAILS:
The DBX 2.0 brings Leatt’s DH-proven safety technology to your home trail at a very attractive price point of $99 USD.
It is equipped with 360º Turbine Technology that helps reduce the risk of head impact at concussion level (by up to 30%) and rotational acceleration to your head and brain (by up to 40%). Ten turbines are set inside the helmet that hardens on impact. Combined with the classic EPS in-molded shell, this dual-density construction dampens all kinds of impact – from low to high speed.
The helmet is well-ventilated with 20 vents, lightweight and is equipped with Quattro Force Control for easy custom-fitting with the turn of a dial, as well as with a breakaway visor.”
The experience gained in helmet construction is transferred to a new entry-level neck brace that is lighter than any other model before. The new 6.0 knee pad shows a unique hard cap construction, combined with the advantages of their 3DF soft impact foam.
DBX 1.0 APPAREL LINE:
These slim/tailored fit jersey and shorts are made of very light, robust and breathable fabrics, making it the perfect combo for climbing and descending all day long.
