Leatt: DBX Enduro 2017 Helmet unveiled by Factory Jackson

Leatt: DBX Enduro 2017 Helmet unveiled by Factory Jackson: 

Enduro is still the buzz word in mountain biking, and 2017 products are dropping thick and fast. Last week we saw the Giro Switchblade – and now we see the awesome new Leatt DBX Enduro helmet launched.

The Leatt DBX Enduro is an open face enduro/trail helmet with a bolt on jaw guard, and it uses 360 technology that offers protection against rotational injuries.

Like most Leatt products – safety is paramount and the DBX Enduro is built for maximum protection in the types of crash you are likely to have.

Alongside the DBX 3.0 all-mountain open face helmet is the convertible DBX Enduro helmet.Both helmets feature the same technology – but the Enduro offering has a bolt on jaw guard for racing and riding in more demanding terrain. It’s very simple to remove and can be stowed in your riding pack with ease – it definitely offers that extra protection you need for Enduro racing, but makes sense for a lot of modern mountain bike riding that doesn’t require a heavier, bulkier full face helmet.

Here are the main highlights:

  1. Two models – All Mountain and Enduro
  2. 18 vents
  3. Two click seperation of jaw guard via buckle
  4. Magnetic Fidlock buckle
  5. Breakaway visor
  6. Goggle compatible – visor moves up out the way
  7. Hydration system ready
  8. Outer shell in 3 sizes
  9. 360 Turbine Technology – helps prevent rotational injury using a similar concept to the MIPS system, but uses 3D moulded Armourgel which stiffens on impact to protect against vertical impact.
  10. Up to 30% less impact for the head
  11. Up to 40% less rotational acceleration to the head and brain
  12. Chin bar certified to pass ASTM1952 standard
  13. Helmet certifies and passes EN1078, CPSC 1203
  14. Weight – 700grams(+/-50g) with chin bar, 375g (+/-50g) with.
  15. Prices TBC
