Pinkbike – Ridden & Rated: Leatt DBX 4.0 Helmet

Pinkbike included our Leatt DBX 4.0 Helmet in their ‘Ridden & Rated: 6 Lightweight Full-Face Helmets’  feature.

“The DBX 4.0 is Leatt’s DH-certified lightweight full face, a model that falls in between their dedicated downhill helmets and the convertible DBX 3.0 helmet. While the other helmets in this roundup use some version of a MIPS liner, the DBX 4.0 uses Leatt’s own 360-degree Turbine technology, which consists of 10 ‘turbines’ constructed from an energy absorbing material. Those turbines are strategically placed on the inside of the helmet, where the rest directly against, or close to, a rider’s head. In the event of an impact, that material is designed to help reduce the forces that reach the brain. Along with the Turbine technology, the DBX uses two different densities of foam to further help with impact absorption.”

“Like the Fox Proframe, the DBX 4.0 has a non-adjustable, breakaway visor. It was slightly in my field of view while climbing, but I didn’t notice it while descending with goggles one. Still, I do wish it could move upwards at least a few degrees. The DBX is on the roomier side of the spectrum for a medium, although that may be due to my more oval shaped dome – it seemed like the excess room was mainly near the top of my head on each side. The cheek padding is thick and comfortable, and overall the DBX has a fit and feel that’s closer to a traditional DH helmet.  There’s not quite the same level of ventilation as what the Stage and Proframe provide, but the DBX does reasonably well with heat management. The removable screen on the front of the chin bar is a nice touch, and helps increase the amount of breathability for climbing or sprinting.”
