CAPE TOWN, South Africa (November 24th, 2017) – The inventors of the Leatt-Brace step up their game for 2018, launching a new entry-level helmet. The Leatt GPX 4.5 helmet brings Leatt’s proven safety technology to your local track at a very attractive price point.
It is equipped with 360º Turbine Technology that helps to reduce the risk of head impact at concussion level by up to 30% and rotational acceleration to your head and brain by up to 40%. Eleven turbines, made of an energy-absorbing material which hardens on impact, are strategically placed inside the helmet.
The multi-density, V-shaped impact foam moulded directly to the outer shell does not only reduce its volume by 10%, but also transfers up to 20% less rotational forces to the neck, head, and the brain.
This triple-density construction (dual density V-Foam plus 360° Turbines) dampens all kinds of harmful forces – from low impact to high speed. Certified and tested for both ECE 2205 or DOT, the weight of the ECE helmet is from 1150g, the DOT is from 1300g (2.86 lbs). Adult prices start from €259, $239.99 and £179.
