Gloves

Leatt’s new glove line starts with the 3.0 X-Flow with knuckle protection. Other features include anatomic 3D molded self-locating impact protection; genuine Clarino palm; vented X-flow mesh upper; pre-curved snug fit in a one piece seamless palm; durable silicone grip on index and middle finger; thumb visor/sweat wiper; stretch fit comfort cuff; multi-ply Nylon thread stitching; and CE certification for impact protection.

The 4.0 Lite has the same features as the 3.0, but the palm material is Nano grip material and the upper has vented 3D mesh material.

Finally, for colder weather, the 4.0 also comes in a Windblock version with the same features as the 4.0 Lite, plus wind-proofing and water resistance.

Helmet

The top helmet is the 6.0 Carbon and 5.0 Composite. Primary features include a patented 360-degree turbine technology, which is claimed to reduce rotational acceleration to the head and brain, decreases head impact at concussion level, and improves multi-impact protection. The reduced outer shell volume decreases the torque and rotational energy to the head and brain. The helmets offer neck brace compatibility, ventilation and are hydration hose ready.

Airflex Pro Knee Protector

When the Airflex knee protector first launched, it was embraced by riders attracted to its light weight. But some felt it was too minimalist, so Leatt answered with the Airflex Pro, which is a bit beefier, but still reasonably light. The new pads add extra top and side padding

Hydration Protection Packs

Leatt launched three new hydration packs, all of them offering a built in back protection. The base 3.0 Cargo model has 10 liters of cargo capacity and a 3-liter bladder. There’s also a level 2 back protector built in. Other features include a Leatt CleanTech bladder; outer helmet/accessory pocket; chest harness; chest pockets; digital camera mount; heat resistant encapsulated bladder pocket; removable waterproof cell phone pouch; neck brace integration; back ventilation; articulating rib panels; sealed tool compartment; water bottle holders; left and right hydration tube channels; and bottom jacket storage straps.

The 2.0 Enduro Lite WP hydration pack has 5 liters of cargo space and 2-liter hydration capacity. Features include waterproof welded shell with water resistant zippers; ergonomic profile; level 1 back protector; helmet and neck brace carrier system; four-way way hydration routing; fully adjustable harness; waterproof touch screen pocket; digital camera mount; neck brace integration; and a quick release hydration bite valve.

Finally, the 2.0 Mountain Lite pack has a slim design with a single liter of cargo pace and a 2-liter hydration capacity, making it, according to Leatt, the smallest and lightest pack with CE protection available. Features include a lightweight but durable construction; compact sizing; level 1 protection; helmet and neck brace carrier system; four-way hydration routing; fully adjustable harness; digital camera mount; neck brace integration; and quick release hydration bite valve.
