Interbike 2018: The Latest Gear From the Cycling World – Gear Junkie
“The patent-pending magnetic hood keeper really caught our eye.”
Interbike 2018, the annual cycling industry trade show, is in the history books. Gear Junkie were there to get you the scoop on the latest cycling gear.
“Leatt, probably best known for innovative neck braces, makes a full line of burly all-weather mountain biking apparel. The piece that truly stood out for us in the 2019 line is the redesigned Leatt DBX 5.0 Jacket.
Leatt customizes this three-layer, four-way-stretch, waterproof-breathable shell for mountain biking with and without armor. The jacket offers a ton of rider-specific features like water-resistant zippers, reinforced yet flexible shoulder and elbow protection, and a hood designed to work over a full-face helmet.
The patent-pending magnetic hood keeper really caught our eye. It not only easily keeps the hood stowed neatly on the jacket, but the included magnet can also be used to keep the hood up over the helmet,” they said.
$199.99 MSRP, available November 2018
