Lightweight Composite Off-Road Head and Brain Protection for Junior Riders
Junior riders and kids crash. Sometimes hard, and sometimes very hard! Now there is finally a solution that minimizes the risk of a head and brain injury – and that is to get the best junior/kids 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 3D molded energy absorbing material, are set inside the helmet. This technology has two main advantages, namely reducing rotational acceleration to the head and brain and the absorption of energy upon impact at concussion level.
It also has a smaller outer shell volume, which assists in reducing rotational acceleration of the head and brain, proving that a smaller helmet shell is better. Our multi-density, V-shaped impact foam is molded directly to the outer shell, enabling us to reduce the outer shell size and still achieve the highest level of impact protection. This unbeatable combination makes all Leatt riders winners.
The helmet also provides ample ventilation, another feature most of us cannot get enough of and, most importantly, these vents work even at very low speeds.
So ensure that your junior rider is properly protected for the next crash – whether big or small.
