  • New Leather inner legs for bike grip 
  • New multilayer knee reinforcement
  • Pre-curved performance fit 
  • Light and breathable construction

The 4.5 pants are also completely new for this year. “With a combination of Ripstop stretch material and X-Flow mesh panels it means they are by no means a typical entry level pair of pants” Leatt claims. A rear yoke and reinforced seat area along with leather inner knee panels are also included for better comfort, fit, bike feel and durability.

GPX Moto Jerseys 

Believing in if it works don’t change it Leatt has kept the 5.5 Ultraweld jersey unaltered for the last two years. The jersey keeps the amount of material in contact with the body to a minimum to achieve a better fit and ventilation. Built in flexible material it can be used with or without body armour underneath. 

The 4.5 Lite jersey has a more traditional fit while the 4.5 X-Flow is aimed to be used when the riding in hot temperatures.

GPX Moto Helmets

All the models, from the lowest priced GPX 3.5 to the carbon built GPX 6.5 feature the 360º Turbine Technology – Leatt’s unique take on rider head safety and protection. 

This system uses small turbine-shaped discs, made from an energy absorbing material, that move disperse energy in an impact and help reduce the risk of concussion up to a 30% and the rotational acceleration to the head and brain up to a 40% in a crash scenario. 

All Leatt’s helmets are available in ECE and DOT certification with a broad colour range that replicates the apparel line.

The 2.5 gloves have also adopted the Velcro closure strap and use “MicroGrip” palm material alongside the 1.5 GripR gloves. The 2.5 Windblock gloves remain unchanged for this year but with 23 colours to choose from you have options!
