Leatt’s New DBX 2.0 Trail Helmet Tested by NSMB
“Leatt’s focus for the new helmet was to provide the best safety elements they could but at a great value price point.”
“During Sea Otter 2017, Leatt released their all-mountain helmet the DBX 3.0 – a helmet that includes plenty of coverage and safety technology for the hard-charging trail riders and enduro racers out there. This year the brand has taken the same focus on safety and introduced their new trail helmet – the DBX 2.0.”
The DBX 2.0 Helmet was recently awarded the Design & Innovation Award 2018.
It features our 360° Turbine Technology. Turbines 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. The new Dri-Lex® liner is washable, moisture wicking, anti-odor and breathable. The 20 vents and the MaxiFlow air channels in the helmet help to keep you cool and ventilated during a ride, whilst the breakaway visor provides additional protection to reduce rotational acceleration in a crash.
“Leatt’s focus for the new helmet was to provide the best safety elements they could but at a great value price point. The helmet is targeted at the trail riding audience and as a result, the 2.0 has a little less coverage than their 3.0 and as expected in a lower cost helmet, Leatt has gone without some of the bells and whistles too. That said, the 2.0 is anything but bland and still features a lot of the features we would normally find in a trail helmet, but packs in the value with the safety technology of their high-end helmets for 99.99 USD,” they said.
