Leatt DBX 3.0 all mountain helmet details

New lid uses Armourgel technology to dissipate impact

Helmets Sea Otter Classic
Energy dissipating technology with great design and ventilation

The Leatt DBX 3.0 has energy dissipating technology and is well ventilated.

Leatt has been on a roll lately, as they have moved beyond their core strength of neck braces. They’ve expanded into other types of protection and clothing, while maintaining their focus on materials, design, and measurable test results. Press play to learn more.

The DBX 3.0 helmet uses a combination of 360 Turbine Technology and Armourgel cushioning material that gives you comfortable, proven protection. An energy absorbing material that is flexible in its natural state, Armourgel hardens upon impact, so the faster or harder you fall, the better it works. Turbines made of this Armourgel are set inside the helmet. This technology improves safety by reducing the head impact at concussion level by up to 30%, and the rotational acceleration to the head and brain by up to 40%.

Because Amourgel is soft in its natural state and it is mounted on a floating platform, it is comfortable on the head contact points. Price is reasonable, too, at $169. Weight is 375 grams.
