of the glove has Leatt’s air-gel impact
protection built into it that is CE tested
and certified as Personal Protective
Equipment. There are Microinjected
3D brush guards on the knuckles and
pinky fingers of the gloves in case
you don’t like to run handguards on
your ATV. And last, the closure system
involves a soft-touch cuff-restraint
system. The fit is tight and sizing starts

pricing starts at $44.99.
GPX 5. 5 V10 HELMET
When Leatt first came out with
this helmet, we tested it in our May
2016 issue. We were impressed with
it back then and still are now. The
safety features are awesome, like the
360 turbines that absorb energy on
hard impacts. The shell of the helmet
is smaller than most and lighter than
most other similar helmets, which may
reduce injury as well. There are four
large vents on the top of the helmet,
along with multiple more on the front
of it to keep you cool during hard riding
and hot weather. This composite DOT-and ECE-approved helmet starts at
$449.99 and can be purchased in sizes
from extra small to double extra large.

lineup of protective gear. ❏
floating kneecap pads on the front of
the knee sections on the pant.
Leatt laser-cuts vents into their
pant to provide airflow to areas that
generate the most heat while riding,
and there are knee vents on each leg.
The seat of the pant is made of 1200D
heavy-duty material, with NanoGrip
inner-leg panels to help you grip your
quad while sitting.
Most of us tend to get sweaty and
smelly after riding a lot, and fortu-
nately Leatt designed an anti-odor
MoistureCool mesh lining into the pant.
And last, there are micro-adjust side
waist straps and a 360-degree silicone
grip strip designed into the GPX 5. 5
pant that provides a snug and secure
fit. Sizing starts at extra small and goes
up to double extra large for a starting
price of $179.99
GPX 3. 5 LITE GLOVE
These gloves are something special.
They are super thin to help you feel
the controls and grip the bars better.
The palms of the glove have nano fiber
technology that is 7. 5 times thinner
than hair. They stretch and flex very
well and provide great grip in dry
conditions and form to your hands in
wet conditions. The material at the top
of the hand also stretches, and the
ventilation breathes well. The knuckle
are perforated brush guards over the
elbows that resist snagging on branch-
es and brush. The collar of the 5. 5 is
designed to work with or without a
neck brace, and it stretches to allow
part of the brace to go inside the jersey.
The fit of the GPX 5. 5 is slim and
long, yet it stretches very easily. It
barely feels like you are even wearing
a jersey, and that is a plus in warm
weather. There is a silicone strip on the
tail of the jersey to help keep it tucked
into the pant. Sizing starts at small and
goes up to double extra large with a
retail price of $69.99.
GPX 5. 5 I.K.S PANT
The impressive technology that Leatt
utilizes continues in the GPX 5. 5 pant.
It has a very comfortable and slim fit,
yet it’s designed to fit knee pads and
braces inside of it. According to Leatt,
75-percent of the I.K.S (Internal Knee
Brace System) pant is made of ultra-light Ripstop stretch material, and it
feels that way to us. The inner knees
of the I.K.S have layers of super-thin
fiber that can rub against each other
without wearing down easily, which
lessens the transfer or knee-brace friction on your ATV. We have destroyed
many gas-tank graphic kits with knee
braces, and this pant lessens that
effect. There are also 3D-molded, fully
Left: The gloves fit comfortably, vent very well and have protection over the knuckles. The palms are thin, so you can feel your
grips. Right: The GPX 5. 5 V10 helmet is extremely protective. The venting system is excellent and it is lightweight.
