DBX 4.0 Helmet
The DBX 4.0 Helmet was recognized by the DIA committee for its comfort, fit and protection, and as 'the perfect helmet for anyone who wants more safety without sacrificing too much comfort.' The helmet is extremely light weight, well ventilated, with 22 big ventilation ports, and pleasant to wear. The comfortable padding all-around the helmet was a perfect fit for testers and is also effective in preventing the helmet from shifting around. The company's 360⁰ turbine system and dual density foam construction absorbs hard knocks, is compliant with ASTM standards and is certified for use as a downhill helmet. The detachable mesh insert of the chin guard allows the helmet to be adapted to weather conditions and discipline. The Leatt DBX 4.0 balances the requirements of both a trail and a downhill helmet.
