Leatt releases 2019 outerwear collection

Leatt has introduced their 2019 outerwear collection.

Leatt’s new 2019 bike outerwear collection includes a new waterproof yet breathable DBX 5.0 All-Mountain jacket, jersey, and shorts gear set, a Windblock, soft-shell 4.0 jacket, a lighter 2.0 jacket, and 2.0 Windblock gloves.

The 5.0 gear set offers the highest level of coverage in the outerwear line and both the jacket and the shorts are made of HydraDri four-way stretch material.

HydraDri is a new a three-layer fabric developed exclusively by Leatt that offers maximum comfort due to its flexibility and it has 30.000mm/23.000g/m2 waterproof/breathable properties.

The DBX 5.0 jacket design includes a new patent-application-pending Magnetic Hood System.

This construction is made up of four magnets, three are sewn in the jacket (between the shoulders, at the back and on top of the hood, close to the visor panel), and one additional magnet with adhesive tape can be stuck to the helmet.

The Magnetic Hood system allows wearers to either fold the hood back and out of the way when not needed, to keep it in place while riding, or to fix the hood securely to the helmet.

The DBX 5.0 shorts have a tailored fit with a seamless seat that moves freely on the bike and the 3D-shaped knees further avoid snagging during pedalling.

The all-weather 5.0 jersey completes the gear set with Windblock arms, chest and sides yet the back is  breathable with a moisture-wicking material.

The 4.0 jacket is constructed from a soft-shell, four-way stretch material with a dirt, water, and stain resistant coating.

Offering a tailored fit, the jacket is windproof, breathable and has adjustable front and rear ventilation.

It also features Leatt’s new Magnetic Hood system and shoulder/elbow Brush Guard to keep a backpack in place.

The 2.0 jacket is the lightest in the outerwear bike line and is made of a four-way stretch 5.000mm/5.000g/m2 waterproof/breathable material with a dirt, water, and stain resistant fabric coating and X-Flow mesh inner lining.

It is also equipped with the same Leatt Magnetic Hood System.

The 2.0 Windblock Gloves upper will shield hands from colder weather, whilst the super slim MicronGrip palm will give handlebar feel, wet and dry grip, and it is touchscreen compatible.

The palm is further reinforced with silicone grip print and the upper with microinjected 3D Brush Guard, offering abrasion resistance.
