Leatt 2020 Off-Road Protection & Apparel

Leatt 2020 Off-Road Protection & Apparel

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, September 12th, 2019 Leatt have unveiled their all-new 2020 off-road gear collection. The inventors of the Leatt-Brace® and producers of specialised, advanced protective gear, now offer head-to-toe protection including a complete apparel range for all off-road disciplines. The twenty/twenty apparel range has a completely new look and feel incorporating the latest fresh colourways for pants, jerseys and gloves, this includes the proud South African statement colourway, the Zebra! Helmets also combine the same colours whilst incorporating Leatt’s 360° Turbine Technology.



For the second year, the construction of the Leatt 5.5 Ultraweld jersey remains the same. Why? Because Leatt believes it’s the best in the business. Keeping the minimum amount of material in contact with the body is key for comfort and ventilation, that’s why a 3D 4-way stretch material with welded overlock stitching is used. The material is so flexible you can use it with or without a body protector underneath. The 4.5 Lite jersey is more of a traditional fit and the 4.5 X-Flow is for the very hottest of conditions.



The 5.5 Ultraweld pants are completely new from the ankle up for twenty/twenty. Leatt have listened to their riders and believe they have built the best pants to meet rider needs. New lightweight and breathable Ripstop stretch material makes up over 95% of the construction for the best comfort and feel. Now added is a Full Grain Leather inner knee panel to work alongside the proven I.K.S (Inner Knee Brace System) to give the best bike grip and improved wear resistance in those critical areas. A completely new rear yolk gripper system means you won’t be caught with your pants down!

The 4.5 pants also get a complete makeover for twenty/twenty – a combination of Ripstop stretch material and X-Flow mesh panels means these are by no means a typical entry-level pair of pants, by some standards these are top-level! A new rear yoke and reinforced seat area, along with Leather inner knee panels improve comfort, fit, bike feel and longevity.



The Leatt helmet range replicates the apparel line colourways for twenty/twenty but will also work well with other clothing brands should you choose. All models, from the cost-effective 3.5 to the innovative 5.5, feature the same 360º Turbine Technology. This system uses small turbine-shaped discs made from an energy-absorbing material that can move in all directions, helping to reduce the risk of concussion by up to 30% and rotational acceleration to the head and brain by up to 40%. All helmets are ECE certified. Material construction for the 3.5 and 4.5 models is an injected Polymer while the 5.5 is a composite material.



The Leatt gloves get upgrades on all models for twenty/twenty, from the entry-level 1.5 to the supercool 2.5. Constantly developing new materials, not just for soft goods but for impact materials too, the 2.5 now gets a Velcro closure strap, for those that want that tight grip around the wrist and is made of MicronGrip palm material along with the 1.5 GripR.



Being a global brand, Leatt understands the need for products that suit all markets. That’s why for twenty/twenty they have introduced 2 small but important consumer products that suit very different climates. The Rain Jacket is made from a lightweight, waterproof translucent material with large vent holes under the arms for those wet races and rides. When you need something lightweight and non-restrictive to wear for cold morning practice sessions the Enduro Race Vest could be just what you are looking for. The Race Vest is a soft-shell waterproof stretch material with 4 pockets and a specially tailored neck to ensure the collar doesn’t irritate.



Junior riders want to emulate their heroes, so that’s why Leatt uses the same cool designs as the adult collection. With pants, jerseys and gloves starting at size YXXS, there is sure to be a size to fit every junior or mini-pilot. Super lightweight yet durable stretch materials are used in the pants and jerseys. The 3.5 gloves have CE Certified impact protection in the knuckle area for those flying rocks, posts or branches – some peace of mind for the parents. The helmet range consists of the 3.5 and 4.5, both made from a polymer compound material and use the same 360º Turbine Technology as in the adults. This system uses small turbine-shaped discs made from an energy-absorbing material that can move in all directions, helping to reduce the risk of impact at concussion level by up to 30%, and rotational acceleration to the head and brain by up to 40%. Both helmets are ECE certified.


Leatt® develops personal protective equipment and ancillary products for all forms of sports, especially action sports. The Leatt-Brace® is an award-winning neck brace system considered the gold standard for neck protection for anyone wearing a crash helmet as a form of protection. It was designed for participants in action sports or riding motorcycles, bicycles, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles and other vehicles.
