6.0 DBX Carbon Helmet

Leatt certainly wasn't addressing a budget-conscious crowd when it developed its 6.0 Carbon Helmet, but then again, it's hard to place a value on preserving your cognitive abilities. If you're in the habit of going big on the DH/freeride course or BMX circuit, we'd suggest taking a look at the design. It's one of Leatt's first forays into the helmet realm and it's also certainly one that's attracted attention from its competitors. Using a mix of new proprietary technology and a sleek, featherweight carbon construction, Leatt created a helmet that was smaller and lighter than most on the market but that preserves the ability to protect against multiple low-speed impacts and rotational forces while remaining functional and light.


The helmet's shell comes first in defending you upon impact with the ground, and Leatt addressed not only the material the shell is constructed with, but also the shape of the shell itself. In the case of the 6.0 Carbon, that interaction consists of a carbon in-mold shell fused to an impact-absorbing inner layer of EPS foam. Leatt specifically shaped the outer shell to eliminate any unnecessary material and provide a contoured fit around the head and neck, minimizing forces transferred to the neck as well as rotational forces to the head and brain in a spill.


360 Turbine refers to an assortment of buttons (bear with us) made out of a relatively new material known as Armourgel. Renowned for its ability to become rigid upon impact, Armourgel is extremely efficient at effectively blocking impact forces, specifically from low-speed impacts, which are notorious for causing concussions. With small buttons of Armourgel strategically placed between the helmet's shell and its EPS liner on the 6.0, Leatt aims to stop as much force as possible from traveling through the rest of the helmet. The small buttons also allow the outer shell to rotate slightly upon impact to protect against oblique impacts, and since most of the force of low-speed impacts is absorbed by the Armourgel, Leatt insists that it's safe to use for multiple impacts because it prevents the EPS foam liner from being compromised in a crash.


The 6.0's V-Foam liner deviates slightly from standard EPS foam in its construction. The material consists of a firmer outer layer of foam joined to the outer carbon shell in an in-molding process, which is then fused to soft inner foam peppered with impact-absorbing conical spikes. This construction process minimizes weight and bulk, providing extremely reliable protection while allowing the helmet to remain light and breathable.


Safety aside, Leatt doesn't neglect the small details that make a helmet practical for everyday use; it shaped the 6.0 to be comfortable and compatible with neck braces, and designed the visor to detach in the event of a crash, and also added low-friction cheek pads that are easy to detach in an emergency. Venting throughout the helmet is arranged to ensure airflow reaches riders even at low speeds, and the helmet comes hydration-compatible for racing. Along the inside of the helmet, your head rests against a breathable liner designed to wick moisture away from your skin and resist odors, though it's washable in case certain persistent odors prevail.
