2015 Leatt GPX 5.5 V5 Helmet in White Black Red - Leatt GPX Motocross Helmets

Leatt’s much-anticipated 5.5 GPX Motocross Helmet is landing in 2015, offering groundbreaking head and brain protection!.  There have been a lot of advancements in protective gear technology as of late and whether you believe in neck braces or not, you have to admit Leatt is pushing safety in motocross forward more than any company ever has (that we can remember anyway). Every year they do improve their neck braces, but that’s not all.

They have been rolling out CE impact certified chest protectors, knee pads and elbow pads over the past couple years. Then there is the recently released, completely unique C-Frame knee brace.

All of this and I haven’t even mentioned their new GPX 5.5 helmet (available early 2015) that features composite fusion 3 and 360° turbine technology. It is light, the shell is smaller than the average helmet and it is designed to help to reduce impact at the concussion level, rotational acceleration and g-forces transferred to the head and brain.  You cannot deny that Leatt is committed to rethinking and improving products that have been the same for years.
