Leatt certainly wasn't addressing a budget conscious crowd when it developed its 6. 0 Carbon Helmet, but then again, it's hard to place a value on preserving your cognitive abilities. If you're in the habit of going big on the DHfreeride course or BMX circuit, we'd suggest taking a look at the design. It's one of Leatt's first forays into the helmet realm and it's also certainly one that's attracted attention from its competitors. Using a mix of new proprietary technology and a sleek, featherweight carbon construction, Leatt created a helmet that was smaller and lighter than most on the market but that preserves the ability to protect against multiple low speed impacts and rotational forces while remaining functional and light. The helmet's shell comes first in defending you upon impact with the ground, and Leatt addressed not only the material the shell is constructed with but also the shape of the shell itself. In the case of the 6. 0 Carbon, that interaction consists of a carbon in mold shell fused to an impact absorbing inner layer of EPS foam. Leatt specifically shaped the outer shell to eliminate any unnecessary material and provide a contoured fit around the head and neck, minimizing forces transferred to the neck as well as rotational forces to the head and brain in a spill. Further addressing growing concerns over concussion prevention and the benefits of multiple impact protection, Leatt's 360 Turbine Technology takes care of both, and though it took us a few moments of skepticism to understand, we believe the offbeat technology is deserving of its merits. 360 Turbine refers to an assortment of buttons bear with us made out of a relatively new material known as Armourgel. Renowned for its ability to become rigid upon impact, Armourgel is extremely efficient at effectively blocking impact forces, specifically from low speed impacts, which are notorious for causing concussions. With small buttons of Armourgel strategically placed between the helmet's s...
