Leatt DBX 5.0 V12 Composite Helmet

Regular price $259.99

The composite bicycle helmets are made specifically to suit downhill and BMX riders’ needs, keeping both safety and comfort in mind. Making use of 360 ̊ Turbine Technology integrated with cushioning material, they offer premium protection.  

The 5.0 helmet is lined with ten turbines made of an energy absorbing material that hardens upon impact, which means that it works better the faster or harder you fall. This ground-breaking technology reduces the head impact at concussion level by up to 30% and the rotational acceleration to the head and brain by up to 40%.

It is further equipped with 3D in-molded V-foam and a 10% smaller shell size, transferring up to 20% less rotational forces to the neck, head and brain. When you are out there where you feel most alive, you want your helmet to be comfortable and that is why we have also made our helmets extremely lightweight and ventilated – even at very low speeds. For your convenience, it will pair perfectly with your neck brace, and has a Fidlock magnetic buckle for custom fitting with the turn of a dial.
