Always reviewed well here at Off-road.cc, Leatt has updated the range of riding gear for 2021. In the range, we now find new tech, fabrics that are designed to enhance comfort, protection, and all-around on-bike performance.
First up, let's start off with the 5.0 jacket. It's the brand's heavy-duty wet weather jacket that's designed to shrug off the worst weather. For 2021 it now features a new ClimbVent connector which allows the rider to climb with the jacket open.
The 5.0 jacket gets a three-layer HydraDry 30mm/23g/㎡ waterproof/breathable membrane.
Also in the jacket line up is the 4.0, that ones more for lighter rains. It has a 10mm/10g/m² waterproof/breathable four-way stretch fabric and a two-point, fully adjustable hood that has a stiffened peak that can also fit over a full-face helmet.
Finally, there's the 2.0 jacket. It can fold up into its own chest pocket for easy storage and it features a four-way stretch 5mm/5g/m² waterproof/breathable material.
As for jerseys, Leatt has unveiled the new 5.0 jersey which is made with harsh weather in mind. On the chest, arms and sides is Leatt's tech dubbed WindBlock which is claimed to do exactly what it says on the tin.
Then there's the 4.0 Ultraweld jersey (pictured). Like its namesake, it has welded seams at the cuff and hem. There are also mesh panels for added airflow.
In the line-up is the 3.0, it's a three-quarter length sleeved top with perforated ventilation with a new cotton-feel moisture cool stretch mesh fabric. It's said to pair well with body armour. The 2.0 jersey gets the same tech but it has a short and long sleeve option.
the 1.0 jersey gets t-sleeves and is built from a quick-drying stretch mesh with a ventilated back, perfect for hot days.
Also in the range are the 4.0 pants. Leatt says that these have an improved fit with fewer seams. There's also a new, more durable shell with a better stretch and improved breathability. They're pre-curved and they have space for knee pads.
A new clothing range wouldn't be complete without new shorts. The 5.0 shorts are made for all-weather riding with a host of wet weather tricks to make things a bit more comfortable. They feature a three-layer HydraDri membrane 30mm/23g/m² waterproof/breathable shell and lightweight four-way stretch fabric. There's also a waterproof side pocket, two hip pockets, and one at the back.
The 4.0 shorts come with laser cut ventilation with a goggle pocket and a new key loop. They're pre-curved and there's a soft touch, 500D laminated seat for extra comfort.
The 3.0 and 2.0 benefit from some trickle-down, they get a four-way stretch fabric and pre-curved knees, along with the same laser-cut ventilation.
Next up, the 1.0 shorts get the same four-way stretch fabric and laser-cut ventilation.
Rounding the range off with gloves, Leatt's new gloves for 2021 get updates such as a new super-slim AirFlex Impact gel protection and FormFit finger stitching for a better fit. There's also an improved upper mesh for greater ventilation. They're also touch screen compatible.
Included in the glove range is the 2.0 SubZero which is designed specifically for icy weather while still promising a great bar feel. There's a WindBlock upper to keep windchill down and a Microngrip palm for that bar feel.
