Best known as the inventors of the Leatt-Brace, Leatt has slowly been expanding their line up to offer well thought out protective gear and accessories. For 2018 they’ve set their sights on all new apparel intended to enrich the trail riding experience with new jerseys, shorts, gloves, jackets and a new helmet.
The DBX 2.0 Helmet
The new DBX 2.0 features their 360º Turbine technology in a great looking package at an extremely accessible price point of $99. With 20 air vents and channels, it should help keep heads cool and ventilated on the trail.
New Trail riding Kit
Leatt’s jumped into the trail apparel with new jerseys including a screen printed color blocked technical tee and a quarter zip for the hot days. As you’d expect, they can be worn with or without body armor and the collar is designed to pair well with their neck brace. The half-zip DBX 1.0 jersey has traditional rear jersey pockets but adds an anti-sag suspender system (loose fitting jerseys and loaded rear pockets often don’t quite work so well) that is designed to help keep the jersey sitting properly when loaded with trail essentials.
The apparel line also refreshes last years styles with new color options for a total of over 65 pieces that should match any riding setup. I’m especially fond of all the sky blue (aka Bermstyle blue) options in this line up…
DBX 6.0 Knee Guard
After the excellent experiences with the Airflex Pro Knee guard (the best pedaling all around trail knee pad I’ve worn to date) I’m possibly anticipating the 3DF 6.0 Knee guard the most. Leatt’s hybrid of a hard/soft shell knee pad offers soft pad comfort with the added protection of a hardshell. If it wears anything like the Airflex, Leatt could have another hit on their hands.
