Best new protective gear from Interbike 2016 - Leatt DBX 3.0 Helmet:
Leatt DBX 3.0 Helmet
Leatt’s new DBX range of helmets feature a dozen safety-enhancing turbines, which are made of 3D molded Armourgel and then set inside the helmet. The idea is that these rubber-like discs stiffen upon impact and deform to absorb both vertical and rotational impact forces (think MIPS). Leatt claims this technology reduces up to 30% of head impact at concussion level as well as up to 40% of rotational acceleration to the head and brain.
Both the full face DBX 5.0 and 6.0 models, and the 3.0 removable chinbar helmet are fitted with 3D in-molded V-foam, a multi-density foam that deforms and compresses to better absorb impact, and to reduce forces transferred to the head and brain. The resulting reduced outer shell size allows for a claimed 20% less rotational forces. There are four color options with sizes S, M, L. Price is $240 with availability set for March 2017.

The Leatt DBX 3.0 chinbar is removable with just two clicks, and it conforms to the ASTM1952 DH safety standard.
