​Known worldwide for its line of neck braces, Leatt is now branching out into several other areas of protection and apparel. The new 6.0 helmet is a carbon in-mould shell that weighs in at 1063-grams in size XL. It features several unique innovations, such as the armor gel "Turbine" discs that provide initial shock-absorption and reduction of the rotational forces that might be transmitted by the helmet to the head during non-linear impacts, or hydration system compatibility to allow you to drink during long race stages for example.

Naturally, Leatt's helmet has been designed to play nice with neck braces.

The 6.0 helmet features pull tabs for ease of removal after a crash, as well as a breakaway visor. It retails for $499 USD, and if that is a bit steep, there is also the composite 5.0 version that weighs in at a 100-grams more and costs $100 less.

Leatt are bring a brand-new hydration pack to the market, the DBX Enduro WP. Available in 2 sizes, 5L or 1L cargo coupled with 2 liters hydration capacity, it is aimed at racers or riders looking to haul a minimum amount of gear around.

The DBX features a protective backplate and an innovative helmet-carrying solution that adapts to any style of full-face helmet you might want to carry around.

The DBX is weather proofed and is delivered with a 2 liter hydration bladder. It is available now, and retails for $139 USD in the 5 liter version, and $99.99 USD in the 1 liter version.

Leatt's Airflex Pro knee pads evolve for 2016. They now offer more side protection and a new mesh added for comfort. They go on sale in October for $79 USD.

The 3DF 5.0 uses a soft foam that hardens in 2 stages on impact. It will be available as of October as well, and will retail for $75 USD.
