Six 2018 Leatt Apparel and Protection Products We'd Happily Use on the Trail

Stepping into Leatt's impressive Interbike booth or packed Crankworx pop-up store, you realize just how many new products they've recently created...

Over at Leatt, it's pretty much all new for 2018. The brand seems to be on a tear in recent years, building off their widely-recognized neck braces and onto new frontiers with loads of fresh apparel, protection, and accessories that are thoughtfully designed for today's riders.
