Leatt released their new DBX 6.0 helmet, one that sports a full carbon construction, and an aggressive ventilation system that channels air over your head even at low speeds.
The new Leatt helmet features ground breaking 360° Turbine Technology for concussion and brain rotation safety. Leatt claims the helmet offers superior head and brain protection in a shell that is smaller, and thus has less leverage on your head in the event of an impact.

The Revel features the Roughcut HLR bladder cartridge damper as well as dedicated offsets for 27.5 and 29 forks.
