MTB Lab Best of 2017: Leatt DBX 3.0 AM Helmet
“The DBX 3.0 All-Mountain is a comfortable helmet with excellent coverage over the ears and down the neck.
The 18 ventilation holes provide lots of air movement, even during slow speeds, so I never felt my head overheating.”
The MTB Lab compiled a list of what they consider to be the best MTB products of the past year and included the Leatt DBX 3.0 All-Mountain Helmet.
This new helmet is designed to carry you safely across any terrain, and our 360º Turbine helmet technology provides premium protection. Turbines made of an energy-absorbing material is flexible in its natural state, but hardens upon impact to absorb forces. This technology helps with brain and rotation safety and reduces the head impact at concussion level by up to 30% and the rotational acceleration to the head and brain by up to 40%.
“The DBX 3.0 All-Mountain is a comfortable helmet with excellent coverage over the ears and down the neck. The 18 ventilation holes provide lots of air movement, even during slow speeds, so I never felt my head overheating. The interior was deeply padded adding to the comfort level, and the Fidlock magnetic closure system for the chin strap worked like a charm as did the rear adjustment fitting wheel that was easy to use on the fly. The innovative 360º Turbine Technology is an incredible trick system, and I am glad it’s there for my safety and protection whenever I happen to crash,” MTB commented.
The DBX 3.0 All Mountain Helmet comes in Small (51-55cm), Medium (55-59cm) and Large (59-63cm) sizes, Green, Black, Blue, Orange and Grey and retails for $169.99.
