Leatt’s AirFit Lite shoulder-protection tee can be worn underneath a chest protector to provide impact reduction to the shoulders and the collarbone. This lightweight, armored tee weighs just 0.71 pounds, and it is made from soft, flexible and ventilated 3DF AirFit impact foam that conforms to the body.
Leatt made its 3DF 6.0 Impact pants from compression MoistureCool and AirMesh fabrics that wick away moisture. Impact-absorbing padding along with ventilating mesh panels are strategically placed for comfort. Silicone printing on the leg cuffs keep the pants from bunching up in boots, and the 3DF hip-impact protection meets EN1621-1 Level 1 safety standards.
The lightweight (1.59 pounds) 2.5 chest protector provides hard-shell protection from roost and impacts. The ventilated chest protector has a mesh base layer and it can be worn either over or underneath a jersey. The 3D design and adjustable waist straps provide a snug fit, and it is compatible with Leatt neck braces.
Leatt’s GPX 4.5 V19.2 helmet is lined with turbines, which are 360 °moving discs constructed from energy-absorbing shapes and materials that dissipate rotational, direct and deflective impact energy from the head and brain. The ECE- and DOT-certified helmet has a shell made from highest-rated polymer compound that also works to dissipate impact energy.
The GPX 3.5 V19.3 helmet has a smaller price tag than the GPX 4.5, but it still incorporates Leatt’s 360° turbines for brain-rotation and concussion-reduction technology. Like the 4.5 helmet, the helmet is neck-brace compatibility and includes emergency-removal cheekpads and a breakaway peak for additional head-rotational reduction from a crash.
