Leatt - DBX 5.0 Composite V12 Helmet
Dr. Leatt filed his first neck-brace related patent in 2003 and went on to found the Leatt Corporation in 2007. In less than a decade, Leatt has become one of the leaders in the body armor and protective gear industry. Since the introduction of the acclaimed Leatt-Brace, Leatt has expanded and diversified their product catalog. Leatt manufactures some of the most innovative and thoughtful protective gear, inspired by the top medical professionals and biomedical engineers in the industry. The Leatt Corporation continues to release new products that further establish themselves as the industry leader in quality, safety and performance. The new line of mountain bike helmets are a great addition to the Leatt line of products, and are some of the best mountain bike helmets in the world.
The Leatt DBX 5.0 Composite V12 Helmet has many features that riders will find appealing. The outer shell of the helmet is 10% smaller. The reduced shell is not only better for performance, it adds more protection than a larger shell would. By reducing the size of the shell, the rotation forces can be reduced by as much as 20% to the neck, head, and brain. The inner lining is made of 3D in-molded V-foam that makes for a more comfortable fit. The lining is made of moisture wicking material to prevent sweat build up. The lining is made out of an Anti-odor material that can be removed and washed. The Leatt DBX 5.0 Composite V12 Helmet is also a very cool helmet. This helmet is one of the most ventilated mountain bike or BMX helmets on the market. The helmet is constructed with as many ventilation panels as possible, without compromising the overall protection. The vents are optimized for downhill racing and BMX, but are also effective at low speeds. This is a very cool helmet, in every sense of the word. The Leatt 5.0 composite is fully compatible with a Leatt neck brace, but can be worn with or without the brace. All of these great features and more make the Leatt 5.0 Composite is one of the best mountain bike helmets available.
What separates Leatt DBX helmets from other helmet brands is the groundbreaking 360° Turbine technology. In between the hard outer shell and the soft inner lining of the helmet are a series of protective turbines. These turbines are crafted out of 3D molded Armourgel®, a material that hardens upon impact and deforms to absorb impact. The turbines become more effective as the strength of the impact increases. The helmet reduces up to 30% of impact forces at concussion level. The turbines help protect the rider from blunt trauma, but also rotational force. By deforming to the direction of impact, the turbines protect against rotational acceleration that lead to neck injuries. Rotational acceleration is reduced by as much as 40%. The Leatt DBX 5.0 composite V12 Helmet is one of the most protective and best mountain bike helmets on the market.
