Stephanie Slatter walks us through some of the new safety technologies integrated into Leatt’s new helmets, gloves, and hydration packs.

While Leatt has been teasing their much vaunted new full face helmet for some time, they had some pre-production samples at Interbike that looked tantalizingly close to being consumer ready.

The helmet boasts a number of interesting new safety technologies such as Armor Gel. This material is pliable when soft but hardens immediately upon impact. It’s strategically placed throughout the helmet in circular pucks to help with lower speed impacts, as well as rotational forces.

The EPS foam inside the helmet uses a combination of multi-density foams to accommodate a wider range of impacts speeds. These technologies allow Leatt to build a smaller helmet, which transfers less rotational forces to the head.

Other features include huge vents for cooling and removable cheekpads. Weight is 1280g and retail is $499.

The other interesting product on display was the new DBX Enduro Light WP Hydration System. This hydration pack has a built-in integrated CE 1 certified back protector, a reflective liner inside to keep liquids cool, and a harness system with GoPro mounts and a clear smartphone pocket. Additional accessories for the bag include a hands free helmet hose and carbon filter kit.
