This summer season at Crankworx Whistler, Leatt introduced their upcoming 2024 Gravity 6.0 full-face helmet and Velocity 4.0 X-Circulation goggles to a choose group of MTB media. They kindly offered samples for evaluation, so since then I’ve been using with each items. The helmet and goggles have now formally launched, so listed here are the important thing particulars and my impressions of how they really feel on the paths.

The 2024 Gravity 6.0 full-face helmet makes use of a brand new form of carbon development referred to as M-Forge. This materials flexes greater than conventional carbon to assist take up impression vitality, whereas retaining it tremendous gentle. I discovered the Gravity 6.0 to supply nice air flow, snug inside padding, and a really affordable weight.

Leatt’s new Velocity 4.0 X-Circulation goggles introduce a brand new stage of air flow with their closely cut-out frames. They proved to be snug and saved mud and water off my eyes (aside from one particular incident). In addition they saved wind to a tolerable stage, and are a lot cooler in your face than different goggles.

The 2024 Gravity 6.0 helmet boasts a brand new form of carbon for many of its shell, referred to as M-Forge. The M-Forge carbon is extra versatile than conventional carbon fiber, so it helps scale back rebound to decelerate impression forces.  The chin bar is comprised of composite, and beneath the shell is an EPS + EPO impression foam liner.

The Gravity 6.0 has 22 vents, and a reasonably cut-out chin bar with a detachable mud/bug guard.


Safety is a high concern for Leatt, in order that they’ve outfitted the Gravity 6.0 with their 360 Turbine Expertise. Leatt says these pads scale back peak mind acceleration by as much as 30% at impression speeds that may trigger concussions. Since they’ll shift in all instructions, the pads additionally scale back rotational acceleration of the mind by as much as 40%.

To additional mitigate impression forces in a crash, Leatt gave the Gravity 6.0 a breakaway visor. In addition they designed this helmet to work properly with neck braces.

The Gravity 6.0’s Dri-Lex inside padding is breathable and moisture-wicking. It additionally has anti-odor properties and is washable. Leatt caught with a standard double D-ring chin buckle for this lid.

Leatt makes two shell sizes for the Gravity 6.0, however with totally different units of inside padding, they’ll supply S/M/L/XL sizes. The scale vary covers heads from 55-62 cm.

As for weight, Leatt estimates 700-800g relying on dimension, however that appears a bit optimistic. My scale reveals the medium Gravity 6.0 at 873g. The Gravity 6.0 helmet sells for $380. There are three colour choices: White Stealth, or Gold (as examined).

Experience Impressions:

Since Crankworx Whistler I’ve been using the Gravity 6.0 helmet within the Whistler Bike Park and on my native trails. The very first thing I’m completely happy to report is that it matches my head fairly comfortably. I’ve a barely shallow and slender head, and the Gravity 6.0 sits proper the place it ought to be on me. The inside form traces up properly with my cranium, and I by no means skilled any discomfort from this lid.

As this helmet is designed for DH greater than something, Leatt gave it substantial inside padding. The padding is snug, and the sizeable cheek pads hold the helmet cosy with out squeezing my cheeks.

I’ve measured my head at 56cm, however I’m carrying Leatt’s dimension medium helmet which is listed as 57-58cm. I bought small and medium padding units with the helmet, however the medium pads have been tight sufficient for me. In any case my check rides, the padding hasn’t packed out to any noticeable diploma.

Air flow:

My first experience with the Gravity 6.0 helmet was a three-hour summer season session within the Whistler Bike Park. The climate was heat on the base and pleasantly cool up high with a great breeze blowing.

The Gravity 6.0’s air flow is superb. The massive brow vents are nice; the complete high of my head and face have been getting loads of airflow. My head by no means felt scorching on this lid, even whereas using the gondola or hanging across the mountain’s base (and I left it on simply to search out out!).  On my native path rides, I additionally observed good air flow round my ears from the aspect vents. Leatt additionally formed the helmet’s shell so there are not any vents that get blocked by your goggle strap.

Now the Gravity 6.0’s air flow is excellent, however I’ve a hunch it might be improved upon. The inside padding partially or nearly utterly blocks a number of of the vents, and a few areas have vent holes however they’re small. I ponder how a lot airflow might be improved by trimming the inside pads to maintain all of the vents unobstructed.

Whereas that is actually a well-vented downhill helmet, it’s ethereal and light-weight sufficient that it may be worn for enduro/path rides. I did a little bit of pedaling in it and located it nearly as trail-friendly as some absolutely enduro-focused full-faces.

I’m pleased with this helmet’s weight; it’s not a heavy lid at 873g. Leatt stated they felt some superlight full faces aren’t as confidence-inspiring as one which feels a bit extra stable, in order that they saved the 6.0 on the sunshine aspect however used each gram they might to make sure good safety.

One factor I wasn’t wild about is how the Gravity 6.0’s chin bar is a bit excessive. Fortunately it’s not visually problematic, it simply leaves rather less field-of-view than most different full-faces I’ve worn. I used to be nonetheless in a position to pedal up climbs with out it blocking my view of the path under.


I’m not an enormous fan of the Gravity 6.0’s visor, because it’s not a lot assist in retaining the solar off your eyes. The breakaway visor is non-adjustable and is mounted in a fairly excessive place. Someday I used to be using alongside flat floor going through the solar, and the visor wasn’t shading my face in any respect. Wanting on the helmet, it’s apparent the visor is designed to direct airflow into the vents (which it does properly). I nonetheless assume a peak adjustment can be very best so the visor can block the solar higher.

Goggle compatibility was nice with the Gravity 6.0. Leatt’s Velocity 4.0 X-Circulation goggles match completely with the helmet and each different pair of goggles I’ve match into the face opening simply. Whereas gearing up, it’s straightforward to really feel the ridge within the helmet and line up your goggle strap correctly.

For tremendous sloppy days, Leatt offers a clip-on visor extender, which is translucent to permit gentle by way of. Since I used to be attempting to get the X-Circulation goggles splattered at any time when attainable, I by no means rode with the extender.

General I feel the Gravity 6.0 is a pleasant trying lid, however the branding is a bit extreme. The phrase Leatt reveals up 27 occasions on this helmet! It’s simply my opinion, however I feel the graphics would look nicer in the event that they eliminated a few of the Leatt logos.

Velocity 4.0 X-Circulation Goggles:

Air flow is the secret with Leatt’s new Velocity 4.0 X-Circulation goggles. These goggles have been designed round a chopped-away body, which leaves the underside utterly open and has no foam within the high vents. They’re meant to encourage DH or enduro riders who would usually put on sun shades to benefit from the safety of a goggle with out the standard added heat or condensation. 

Leatt saved the froth minimal to maintain these goggles cool, however there may be foam on the high and sides for consolation and to maintain sweat from working into your eyes. The Iriz lens fashions get a triple-layer, dual-density foam with an anti-sweat fleece backing. The clear lens fashions get dual-density foam. Since there’s no have to seal the X-Flows in opposition to your face, they are often worn a bit looser than typical goggles.

In addition they have silicone gripper strips to maintain them safe in your helmet.

The Velocity 4.0 X-Circulation goggles match my face properly, and I discovered them snug. You would possibly marvel if they’d create any stress factors on the backside of the edges, however after my first few hours carrying them I didn’t discover this to be an issue. If something, there is a little more stress in your nostril than common, however the foam padding was adequate to maintain my nostril completely happy.

Relying on how the goggles match along with your helmet, this may be barely higher or worse; With a Bell Sanction full-face, I felt much less stress on the nostril than I did with Leatt’s Gravity 6.0 helmet or my ABUS AirDrop. At worst, it was nonetheless solely a minor distinction versus regular goggles and I by no means got here dwelling with a sore nostril.

With the massive vents on these goggles, you’re most likely pondering water, mud, or mud would possibly get contained in the lens whilst you’re using. I solely had one concern with water getting in from the highest vents, however in any other case, I by no means managed to get any spray or splatter in my eyes.

On one run within the very dry Whistler Bike Park, I chased just a few riders by way of a severe cloud of mud and none of it bought to my eyes. By way of fall and early winter, I went for just a few rides in moist circumstances, in each gentle rain and moist snow. The open bottoms of the goggles didn’t enable something to stand up behind the lens, even with my open-faced Oakley DRT5 helmet offering no safety from under.

As soon as I had a difficulty with the highest vents permitting water in – On my snowy experience the timber have been dripping on my DRT5 helmet as I climbed, and after I put the goggles on for my descent, water dripped from my moist helmet onto the within of the X-Circulation’s lens. Just a little foam within the high vents would possible have prevented this.

I by no means had any points with an excessive amount of wind flowing by way of the goggles. On a near-freezing experience, I may really feel the chilly air flowing round my eyes nearly sufficient to make them water – however not fairly. On that experience, it occurred to me these goggles are corresponding to a pair of larger-lensed sun shades when it comes to wind safety. You’ll really feel air flowing throughout your face with the X-Flows, however they saved the direct wind off my eyes properly sufficient.


The upside of the Velocity 4.0 X-Circulation’s beneficiant airflow is they’re far cooler in your face than most goggles. On scorching days not sealing off half my face felt nice, and my face remained a lot cooler than regular goggles would enable. I may solely think about anybody preferring full-framed goggles for sub-zero rides the place you wish to keep heat wherever attainable.

One factor these goggles do amazingly properly is resist condensation. From sweaty summer season days to snowy rides, I by no means bought any fog on the X-Circulation’s lenses. Even after carrying them for brief climbs and whereas pedaling dwelling from the paths, I couldn’t produce one little bit of condensation. The Velocity 4.0 X-Flows simply beat some other pair of goggles I’ve ridden on this regard. You’d must experience in a sauna to fog these items up!

My closing touch upon the X-Circulation goggles is about one profit you may not have foreseen. They supply wonderful decrease visibility, as you possibly can truly see by way of the open backside sections! This was a pleasant bonus when trying all the way down to verify your bike, or your cellphone, or having fun with a mid-ride snack.
