The full 2017 moto/off-road line includes new helmets, limb, joint and chest protection products along with four jerseys, two pants, two jackets and five glove models.

The ventilated GPX jackets have zip-off arms, large zip-adjusted ventilation, and an internal hydration pocket with a bladder-suspension system. The jersey range consists of dirt- and water-repellent designs, as well as lighter, breathable jerseys.

The new line also includes knee-brace pants, knee-brace socks and knee-brace sleeves that reinforce the brace’s protection.

Made of tough, ventilated material with an anti-odor mesh lining, the GPX pants offer a tailored fit with 3D molded, fully floating knee-cap reinforcement. The 5.5 pants are even more advanced and equipped with a new system called the I.K.S – Internal Knee Brace System, protecting the pants as well as the bike from knee-brace wear.

A highlight for 2017 is the newly-designed C-Frame Pro Carbon knee brace with three-point force distribution and super stiff, forged C-arm mono-hinged construction designed to reduce forces that cause knee injuries. It is certified as a medical device in the European Union and the U.S., and CE-tested and -certified as impact protection.

All new Leatt helmet designs incorporate new 360° Turbine Technology. These turbines are set inside the helmet and are made of 3D molded Armourgel® which stiffens upon impact and deform to absorb both vertical- and rotational-impact forces. This technology reduces up to 30-percent of head impact at concussion level and up to 40-percent of rotational acceleration to the head and brain.

The soft body-protection range offers a soft and flexible fit, yet instantly transforms into a harder energy-absorbing protector.  The hard-shell torso protectors are designed with comfort in mind and the anatomical design ensures a great fit.  Eight new pieces for 2017 including two youth sizes.

Leatt now has five models of gloves, including a new version with very thin protection.  All using a unique NanoGrip palm layer (thin, breathable, robust and ultra grippy, even when soaking wet, where a silicone grip is no longer needed).

Here is an intro video of the Leatt 2017 Collection:

Leatt invited Cycle News to Whistler, Canada, to try out its 2017 line of motorcycle off-road gear, but when we got there, they had something else in mind for us – something a lot quieter than a motorcycle but just as much fun…
