Leatt Velocity Gravity 6.0 helmet, 4.0 X-Flow goggles, SF rider This summer at Crankworx Whistler, Leatt presented their upcoming 2024 Gravity 6.0 full-face helmet and Velocity 4.0 X-Flow goggles to a select group of MTB media. They kindly provided samples for review, so since then I’ve been riding with both pieces. The helmet and goggles have now officially launched, so here are the key details and my impressions of how they feel on the trails.

They proved to be comfortable and kept mud and water off my eyes (except for one specific incident). They also kept wind to a tolerable level, and are much cooler on your face than other goggles.

The chin bar is made from composite, and beneath the shell is an EPS + EPO impact foam liner.
