South Africa’s Leatt initially made its name in the neck brace arena, but has since expanded into helmets, knee and elbow pads, and some great looking apparel. For 2018, that trend continues with the introduction of an entirely new Trail line of products. Leading the way is the new 2.0 Helmet that’s available in four fun colorways and will sell for just $99.99 — and you still get the cutting edge 360 Turbine safety technology.

On the apparel front is the new Trail 1.0 Jacket that’s water resistant and light weight. And when not in use it folds up small for easy storage. Leatt also has two new Trail 1.0 jerseys, one T-shirt style, the other with a half zip front that makes it easier to open up when things heat up. The zipped jersey also has three rear pockets and an anti-sag design that helps keep your valuables from bouncing around on the trail. Both new jersey’s come in four colorways.

To compliment these tops is the Trail 1.0 short that has three strategically placed pockets, a slim fit, and a removable chamois for maximum comfort on the trail. Leatt’s also rolled out the new Core hydration hip pack that’s fully adjustable, well ventilated, and includes a 2-liter bladder and handy tool/food storage pocket.

Finally, on the safety front are the new DBX 3.5 Neck Brace and DBX 6.0 Knee Guards. The award-winning neck brace comes in both adult and junior sizes, while the knee pads feature a combination of all best traits from Leatt’s past knee protectors. These soft shell pads come in three colorways, include padding on the sides and front, and have silicone grip material at the top to prevent unwanted sliding.

Leatt 6.0 Kneepad

This unique knee pad combines a classic soft protection construction with two hard shell sliders. One classic main hard shell at the kneecap/ upper shin, and an additional hard shell along the top of the kneecap.

It is said to improve sliding characteristics on rough terrain massively, so the impact forces are reduced and the knee guard does not slip during crashes. The 6.0 knee guards are still pedaling-friendly, offering proper ventilation because of the new thoroughly perforated main fabric at the front and very breathable mesh at the back.

There is one Velcro strap at the thigh with a silicone grip lining on the interior, as well as an anti-slip band located at the top of the calf, guaranteeing a solid fit.

Available in three colorways, from all-black to black/blue (fuel) to black/white, for $89.99.
