Details

    The Leatt GPX 6.5 Carbon V16 Helmet redefines head and neck protection. A company renowned for safety gear, Leatt has finally released its own off-road helmet. Rather than stick the Leatt name onto a design that is similar to existing ATV or motorcycle helmets, the GPX series of helmets adds innovative new protective features. But of course, would you expect anything less from Leatt?

    The GPX 6.5 helmet features a carbon matrix shell with an innovative V-Foam EPS (expanded polystyrene) liner enhances the helmet's protection while keeping it smaller than competitors. The smaller shell size allows the Leatt helmet to attain new levels of lightness – an important feature for a helmet as it both increases the rider's comfort but also decreases the rotational energy delivered to the head and brain in a crash.

    Leatt has introduced other cutting-edge features as well. For example, the 360° Turbine technology offers two important helmet protective measures. It allows the helmet to absorb more force from a low-energy impact, but it also combats rotational energy as well. In fact, one of the ways that the Leatt GPX helmet line sets itself apart from other ATV and dirt bike helmets is the reduction of rotational acceleration.

    Of course, Leatt has also taken great care to design a helmet with comfort in mind in addition to safety. That's why the GPX helmet features an impressive ventilation system with an innovative design that allows for great airflow. The helmet is also built to accommodate other great Leatt gear, including the legendary Leatt neck brace as well as hydration packs.

    There are no doubts about it. If you are looking for a helmet that features the latest safety technology in an attractive and comfortable package, the Leatt GPX 6.5 V16 helmet is for you.

Best helmet I’ve ever owned
Been drooling over this helmet for about a year, and when it came on sale at 45% off I had to buy it... it was everything I hoped for, about as light as a mountain bike helmet, and lots of cool features. Fits me perfect, will never cheap out on a helmet ever again

good features
It seems like a good helmet. Hope I never find out. But for the features, it has it seems like the best money spent on quality.
However; the new version is better for the cheek pad removal system.

Sick lid that gets the job done!
This is the first helmet I have purchased from Leatt and I must say that I am very impressed. The fit is impressive, the ventilation is fantastic, and it still keeps a sense of style while combining all the safety capabilities that a good rider searches for. I will be buying more of these in the future and recommend this brand for anyone. This helmets a dime in my book!

Helmet fits great on the head but the cheek pads are a bit tight. The weight of it is great and air flow is awesome.

Great helmet. But seriously, one crash it’s done.
This helmet is light. I find it super comfortable and it fits my goggles well. Some guys are having issues with goggle fit. Not here.

The turbine feature may cause the helmet to be somewhat crooked on your head even though it feels right. Just get in front of a mirror and jerk it straight and you’re good to go. I think the liner may have been crooked from the factoria.

Has all the bells and whistles of new helmet technologies. The cheek pads feel a bit tight but i am sure thats good considering it had a MIPS style liner.

Common sense guys, it’s a carbon helmet. You crash with it it’s compromised. Treat it accordingly.

Ridiculously long mouth piece
Way too long a mouth piece stick out too far it should be close to your mouth like a Arai, this i believe is dangerous in a fall as it can act as a wedge and nearly all your jaw line is fully exposed i dont know what they were thinking when designing this helmet, i sent mine back immedialtely and bought something else, plus it wasn't really comfortable

Best Helmet Ever!!!
I initially bought the 5.5 XL per the size chart I was a 24 in which was on the edge of Large and they only had an XL, but when I put it on it was to big. Called RMATV and they were out of the LG. I decided to go to the 6.5 and Lg this time. I can see a big difference between the 5.5 and 6.5 pads and liner in the hemet. The weight is roughly 3 lbs vs 2.8 between the 5.5 and 6.5 so it's all about the comfort and fit.

First ride: temp 85 and humidity was really high in AZ desert near phoenix. I was sweating buckets and drank 3L of water in 2.5 hours. The helmet was awesome. Fit nice and snug, I could feel the air on my head when I was moving at 20+ mph. I noticed I wasn't getting sweat running down my face like I did with my old helmet. Took the helmet off and it was damp but not soaked.

One of my friends said that has to be the most awesome helmet he's ever seen. Well have have to agree it's the most awesome helmet I've ever used and love Leatt' s products. Neck brace and cheat protector combined with the helmet feel great.

HOW much does it weigh, medium size?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2017
Will the oakley frontline goggles fit the 6.5 GPX v16 helmet?
Maverick T on Jan 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Maverick, I am not personally familiar with the Frontline model however, the size looks very similar to the 100% Racecraft goggle which I own and they fit with this helmet.
I got my boyfriend the AIRBRAKE™ PRIZM™ MX ELI TOMAC SIG SERIES GOGGLEs , would they fit inside this helmet ? Or is the face too small ?
Savannah M on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Savannah, it will depend on the size of the helmet you are looking at. I wear an XL in this helmet and have the 100% Racecraft goggle, which is a larger frame/lens, and do not have a problem with fitment.
Hi, will it fit a round oval shaped head
?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have an oval shaped head and had bought helmets in the past that didn't fit right .this 1 fits perfect light weight really good summer helmet .would recommend this helmet to anyone ....good buy....
Does the Leatt GPX 6.5 V16 Carbon helmet come with a nice helmet bag?
Christa G on Dec 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes. you will be happy with the helmet all around.
what size i have to buy?, my circumference is 585mm, i think i am intermediate oval shape,in the wide part I have 16 cm and in the long part 20 cm, thanks for your answer
rafael f on Sep 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rafael, at 585mm I would suggest a size Large.
Are the older models on close out or are some the current?
Christopher S on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Christopher, Rocky Mountain has 2017 and 2018 models listed on closeout.
Does the GPX come with an extra visor? It has been my experience that, at one point they are going to break, and when they do it is a real pain to replace them. If not, maybe consider it.
PHILIP S on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This helmet does not come with an extra visor.
Do 100% goggles fit well with this helmet ?
Mark P on Dec 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 100% Racecraft goggles are probably a tight fit but the rest of the lineup should fit pretty well.
