Climb and Descend Lid.
The 3.0 Enduro Full-Face Helmet from Leatt is a new model engineered to help you go from full-face shred on the downhills to an open-face design while traversing to the next stage all in one helmet. Made of a polycarbonate outer shell, it's lightweight and with its 23 vents, will keep your head cool weather you're redlined on the timed bits or pedaling at slower speeds during a transfer. The chin bar can be removed quickly and easily and stowed in your hydration pack, easily modifying the helmet from a lightweight and cool uphill lid to a confidence inspiring downhill full-face one.
The helmet features Leatt's innovative 360 ̊ Turbine Technology and cushioning material. Turbines, set in the helmet impact foam, stiffen upon impact and deform to absorb both vertical and rotational impact forces. These Turbines are smart and can adjust based on impact speed, so the faster or harder the fall, the better they handle and disperse the energy of the blow. Test prove that this technology reduces up to 30% of the impacts that can lead to concussions as well as up to 40% of rotational acceleration to the head and brain.
The outer shell of the helmet and 3D in-molded impact foam allows for better energy absorption and the visor is designed to breakaway in a crash for rotational reduction. The Fidlock magnetic buckle allows a custom fit and is easy to open and close even with gloves on. Leatt offers an optional hand-free hydration kit so you can stay hydrated on your ride without having to take your hands off the bar. Ensuring that the helmet doesn't offend you or any of your riding pals, the moisture-wicking, breathable, anti-odor liner and cheek pads are washable.

- Q & A
saved my nuggin
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fits my head shape well. Well vented for a convertible enduro helmet. Sadly though I ate it and hit my head on a rock going OTB about 10 feet down off the trail on my 1st ride out. Nice dent in the foam shell so that was an expensive crash.
Comfy and Cool
Great ventilation for how bomber the helmet feels. I haven't used it with the chin bar, but I will at some point. Fits and looks like a normal helmet without the chin bar. Magnetic closure is awesome!
Great Helmet and Chin Guard
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I've had the helmet for long enough now to know it's a very nice option for a convertible helmet. I'm a long time user of the Bell Super 2R and 3R and I really like those options as well so I would recommend them strongly too. Overall I'd say the follow-
Pros of the Leatt-
Very good field of vision
Smaller overall and less storm trooper looking without chin guard
Cons of Leatt-
Fitting System does not feel as secure
Helmet by itself is not as protective as Super 3r Helmet only
The chin guard seems to sit lower than the 3r so it protects chin more but leaves face a little more venerable.
Leatt feels less protective than the 3r
Back straps are tricky when putting the helmet on with the chin guard
Larger chin guard is more difficult to fit in pack
No ear holes when chin guard is on so less able to hear surroundings
Long visor that can hamper otherwise good field of vision
No good way to put glasses on top of helmet when climbing
Visor screw broke after one fall(never had that happen on Bell Super)
If the Bell Super 3R was a little smaller overall I would pick it over the Leatt. However, it's a bigger helmet and feels a little more confining. For trail and light enduro I think the Leatt is a winner because it is so comfortable. I would not feel as secure in the Leatt on park days like I would with the Bell Super 3r but I have a downhill helmet for those days. Hope this is helpful and Happy Trails
With the chin bar in place, is this helmet compatible with the leatt neck brace?
