CAPE TOWN, South Africa (4th December, 2018) – The inventors of the Leatt-Brace® just unveiled a new design in their helmet range. The helmet to match every challenge, the new 4.0 bicycle helmet is featherlight, ventilated and offers DH-certified full-face protection.
This new DBX 4.0 helmet has been included in this year’s 2018 Interbike Innovation Awards, winning in the category of ‘Mountain Bike Product Innovation’ thanks to its technological features and unique detachable mouthpiece. The Interbike Innovation Awards showcase excellence in product, retail, advocacy and exhibitor booths. Products are considered based on the level of innovation, plus their overall design and construction, ride performance and/or value.
Featuring Leatt’s award-winning 360° Turbine Tech, the helmet is lined with turbines which are 360 ̊moving discs constructed from an energy-absorbing shape and material. This technology has two exclusive advantages, namely the reduction of rotational acceleration to the head and brain and the absorption of energy upon impact at concussion level.
The lightweight design is equipped with 22 vents and a detachable mouthpiece, making it superbly ventilated. The shell is made of a Polymer compound and the liner is an in-molded EPS + EPO impact foam for energy absorption.
Offering riders more confidence, more opportunity and all the protection you need to meet the Thrill head on!
