Riders looking for additional head impact protection are about to have another great option to select from with the release of the new Leatt DBX 3.0 Enduro helmet. Made with a polycarbonate outer shell, it’s light weight and equipped with a removable chin bar as well as 18 vents to keep the temperature down under exertion.
Like the rest of the helmet collection, the DBX 3.0 Enduro v2 utilizes Leatt’s 360º Turbine Technolody and Armourgel cushioning material to reduce rotational acceleration to the brain in addition to impacts.
For riders like me though, the best feature is the fit. If you have issues fitting helmets with oval shaped molds like the Super, the Leatt accommodates a wider variety of head shapes. (for example, in the sport bike world, I’m an Arai as opposed to Shoei head)
Leatt launched their new DBX 3.0 all mountain helmet at the Sea Otter Classic last week at a fun, low key event that had bike media types pedaling boardwalk style cruisers from pub to pub donned with the new all mountain trail riding lid, and taking home their samples to spend time with. It’s a great looking helmet, and is positioned to be a great looking alternative to what has been one of the popular helmets in the category, the Bell Super. The low profile outer shell should look a lot better on smaller heads as well. I’m really digging mine and will reporting more on it soon.
The Leatt DBX 3.0 Enduro V2 helmet lists for $240, and should be available this fall. Check it out at Leatt.com
