Bike Mag Reviews Leatt DBX 3.0 Enduro Helmet
“This convertible helmet doesn’t feel like one. That’s a good thing.”
Bike Mag recently took a closer look at our Leatt DBX 3.0 Enduro Helmet, our bicycle helmet that has a removable chin bar to take you from uphill to downhill riding.
The DBX 3.0 Enduro helmet offers world-class protection with our well-known 360 ̊ Turbine Technology. Turbines made of 3D molded energy absorbing material are set inside the helmet. This technology has two main advantages, namely the reduction of rotational acceleration to the head and brain and the absorption of energy upon impact at concussion level.
“To be clear, the DBX 3.0 Enduro is not ASTM-certified for DH racing. But it has the look and, more importantly, the feel of a more traditional DH helmet. Most notably, the chin bar sits at a comfortable distance away from your face. It doesn’t have the claustrophobic effect that some light-duty dual-duty helmets have. And it looks from the outside like it’s ready to commit,” Bike Mag commented.
Another main feature is its ventilation. “The generously-vented DBX rides much cooler than the Bell Super that’s been my go-to for years. And the straps feature a welcomed innovation. The straps on the Specialized Ambush helmet won us over because they’re thin, low profile, and leave ample room for your ears. But they’re not adjustable. Leatt offers the same comfort and simplicity, but still offers some adjustability if you want to tune where the split happens.”
“So maybe it’s a good thing that there’s no convention to adhere to in enduro helmet design. The DBX 3.0 Enduro wasn’t concerned with fitting a mold. It’s a helmet. It’s got its own mold,” Bike Mag concluded.
