Leatt unveils Twenty/Twenty Apparel and Protection line

Updated colors, fabrics, and protection technology help improve the offering from South African brand Leatt

Apparel Enduro Helmets

South African protection and apparel brand, Leatt, is launching their all-new Twenty/Twenty DBX MTB gear collection. Offering a diverse mix of head-to-knee protection and an exclusive apparel range for MTB and urban purposes. The DBX Twenty/Twenty range offers a totally new look and feel and fresh colorways for all pants, shorts, helmets and gloves. Helmets are still available in the original favorites as well as some new color combinations while retaining Leatt’s ground-breaking 360° Turbine Technology.

 DBX MTB JERSEYS

The most popular jersey from Leatt, the 4.0 Ultraweld has received some updates, including a MoistureCool wicking stretch mesh fabric with air channels, as well as welded cuffs and hem seams to ensure premium comfort and breathability. Centered around a racing stretch-fit, the jersey can be worn comfortably with or without body armor. Leatt’s most high-performance jersey the tough-wearing 5.0 All-Mountain, offers a Windblock chest, breathable mesh back and tailored fit designed for riding out the harshest of elements, while the 3.0, 2.0 and 1.0 Jerseys all have short sleeve options for warmer conditions – technical MTB jerseys with all the cool cotton-feel comfort of a casual Tee.

  

DBX MTB PANTS & SHORTS

Specifically designed for downhill, trail and BMX the ultra-light vented four-way stretch material has a dirt, water and stain-resistant fabric coating. The pre-curved kneepad fit is optimized for pedaling comfort, while adjustable waist straps and a silicone grip keep the pants securely around the waist, so they won’t slip down.

Leatt’s Twenty/Twenty DBX shorts range has everything from all-weather 5.0 shorts to performance 1.0 trail shorts. With Leatt’s  30.000/23.000 HydraDri material, the waterproof, dirt and stain resistant 5.0 All-Mountain shorts are ideal for wet and loose conditions. Four-way stretch is available across the entire range and will keep you comfortable and let you move freely on the bike. The 4.0 gravity shorts are tough and loose, perfect for pinning it down the trail and fast downhill riding. The lightweight 3.0 enduro shorts are stretchy, comfortable and ideal for everyday riding. The ultra-lightweight 1.0 shorts with chamois have a shorter fit for the more trail/XC orientated rider and are the ideal sunny weather riding shorts.

  

DBX MTB & URBAN HELMETS

The Leatt helmet range also comes in the all-new forest green colorway for Twenty/Twenty. In 2019 Leatt released its DBX 4.0 all-purpose helmet which quickly became the crowd favorite thanks to its affordable price, comfort, light weight, extreme ventilation with 22 vents and a removable mouthpiece as well as top level safety standard. The Leatt has listened to that response and have now released an all-new 1.0 MTN half shell, which sells for 69,- USD / 69,-Euro and includes 360 Turbine Technology, deep rear coverage for added protection and an adjustable visor. It looks good, feels great and will keep you safe. Leatt has also entered the urban market with a great, well-ventilated commuter helmet featuring 360 Turbine Technology and retailing for just $49 USD / 49Euro.

Leatt never compromises, which is why all models, feature the same 360º Turbine Technology. This system uses small turbine-shaped discs made from an energy-absorbing material that can move in all directions, helping to reduce the risk of concussion by up to 30% and rotational acceleration to the head and brain by up to 40%. All helmets are CE certified and tested: AS/NZS 2063:2008, EN1078, CPSC 1203.

 

 

 

Urban helmets are a new genre for Leatt.

DBX MTB GLOVES

With their unique NanoGrip palm, which offers superior handlebar feel and protection, Leatt Twenty/Twenty gloves are designed to be tough and durable. The 4.0 Lite feature full knuckle and finger Airflex protection, only now impact protection is softer and lighter, whilst still being CE tested and certified.

The 2.0 X-Flow has a new vented, four-way stretch upper hand for a better fit and breathability with a MicronGrip palm, the same as the 1.0 GripR. Leatt’s first weather-resistant softshell glove, the 2.0 Windblock is a must-have for colder, harsher weather conditions. All gloves are available in a wide selection of colors, so you’re guaranteed to find just the pair for you.
