In BMX you can't be safe enough. You never know when you need your protection so the best thing is to wear it all the time because that chain will snap at some point, or the wind will pick up or that scooter kit will run in front of you coming out of nowhere. Leatt's got a new helmet, and not just a normal helmet. This one is ground breaking, and here is why:
360° Turbine Technology
-30% - 50% reduction of impact at concussion level.
It's not long now before the BMX Kids in Australia will gather for the Lil Pros BMX tour. One of them is Jake Kowal who, like the others, can't wait for this upcoming weekend of BMX madness.
