Lightweight Composite Off-Road Head and Brain Protection.
We all crash. Sometimes hard, and sometimes even harder! There is solution to minimize the risk of a head and brain injury, however, and that is to get the best helmet you can find that reduces both rotation and impact energy to your head and brain.
The GPX 5.5 Composite helmet offers world-class protection with 360 Turbine Technology. Turbines made of an energy-absorbing material, are set inside the helmet. This technology has two main advantages, namely the reduction of rotational acceleration to the head and brain and the absorption of energy upon impact at concussion level.
Leatt helmets also have a smaller outer shell volume, which benefits you by reducing the rotational acceleration to your head and brain in the case of a crash - proving that smaller shells are better. The multi-density, V-shaped impact foam is molded directly to the outer shell, making it possible for Leatt to reduce the outer shell size and achieve the highest level of impact protection at the same time. This is an unbeaten combination that makes all Leatt riders winners.
Ventilation is another feature that most of us cannot get enough of. Look no further, as Leatt helmets provide ample ventilation and, most importantly, the vents work well even at low speeds.
So, next time you crash, see to it that you are protected by the best technology out there.
Composite shell in three sizes.
360 Turbine Technology:
Reduces up to 30% of head impact at concussion level.
Reduces up to 40% of rotational acceleration to head and brain.
Reduced outer shell volume; a 10% smaller shell, transfers up to 20% less rotational forces to the neck, head and brain.
Multi-density, V-shaped impact foam molded directly to the outer shell significantly reduces G-forces transferred to the head and brain.

1. Measure your head size. To do this, pass a tape measure horizontally around your head at a height of about one inch above your eye brows. When done properly, you will have measured the largest part of your head.
2. Check your measurement with the helmet sizing chart and select the closest size. As the helmet may not always meet your head size exactly, and your head measurement may fall between two sizes, first try the smaller size.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR HELMET
1. Expand the helmet opening by pulling outwards on each chinstrap, and slide your head into the helmet. If you are unfamiliar with helmets you may be reluctant to pull the helmet down, as it may feel too tight. Even if the helmet is difficult to put on, please use the smallest helmet possible. The helmet should feel snug. If the helmet is not tight, it is too big for you. New helmets will break in and loosen slightly over time.
2. Once the helmet is on:
Check that the helmet inner lining fits snugly all around your head.
Check that the top pad presses on the top of your head.
Check that the cheek pads press up against your cheeks. When you open and close your mouth, you should drag your teeth along the inside of your cheeks.
Check to make sure that you cannot easily slide your finger into the helmet along the side of your temple.
Hold the helmet with one hand on each side. Without moving your head, try to move the helmet up and down, and side to side. You should feel the skin of your head and face being pulled as you try to move the helmet. If you can move the helmet around easily, it is too big. Try a smaller size. Please note that during this check, the chinstraps should be properly fastened.
