The helmet is lined with turbines, which are 360 ̊moving discs constructed from an energy-absorbing shape and material.
This technology has two key advantages, namely the reduction of rotational acceleration to the head and brain and the absorption of energy upon impact at concussion level.
The entire outer shell is also reduced in volume, resulting in a significant decrease of rotational acceleration to the head and brain at impact, and proving that a smaller shell is a safer shell.
Next, multi-density, V-shaped impact foam is moulded directly to the outer shell. More cushioning, less surface area. A total win for the rider giving it his all.
Regardless of the speed, the Leatt 4.5 facilitates all-round ventilation. The complete ‘tech-smart’ helmet, the 4.5 is the wisest safety choice the no-holds-barred Thrill seeker could make.
