Leatt - GPX 5.5 Composite Solid 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 body armor and protective motorsports gear. Since the release of the widely acclaimed Leatt-Brace, Leatt has steadily increased the number of products and product lines. Leatt body armor is some of the most innovative and thoughtful protective gear on the market. Their neck braces, chest protectors and knee braces redefine safety and performance. Leatt uses their groundbreaking engineering team to develop the best dirt bike helmets on the market. The unique design of this new line of Leatt dirt bike helmets helps to differentiate Leatt from other well established dirt bike helmet brands.
The Leatt 6.5 Carbon V16 Helmet is one of the best dirt bike helmets in the world. The helmet has been engineered, using patented technology, to be one of the safest helmets on the market. The helmet shell is comprised of a strong carbon fiber weave. Constructing a helmet with a carbon fiber shell allows the size of the helmet shell to be reduced, due to the increased durability and more aerodynamic. This tradeoff provides even more protection and less bulk for the rider. The Leatt 6.5 Carbon Helmet has the maximum amount of ventilation, while still maintaining its structural integrity. The ventilation works even at low speeds.
The 5.5 Composite V15 is not an entirely new Leatt dirt bike helmet. The 5.5 Composite originally came in a grey scale color pallet. Leatt has introduced seven new colors that help make the line stand out. They have also added the Leatt logo across the helmet which creates a new aesthetic for the 5.5 Composite. This helmet is not made with the carbon fiber material which makes it much lighter than the 6.5 carbon line. It also does not sport as much ventilation. The dual liner system is easily removable with its snap out design, so it can be washed.
Both Leatt dirt bike helmet lines use a 360° degree Turbine technology. This technology helps to reduce concussions and other injuries from hard impacts to the head. These helmets utilize Armourgel turbines, placed in multiple points along the helmet, to mitigate impacts across the exterior of the helmet. Armourgel is a material that hardens upon impact. The harder the impact, the harder the gel becomes. These turbines absorb the impact which reduces impact stress, but also helps decelerate the riders head rotation speed to avoid brain damage. Both models are engineered for maximum compatibility with the neck brace, making these helmets the best dirt bike helmets to wear with a neck brace.
