Jag har precis fått en glad nyhet. Mitt favoritmärke Leatt släpper fyra nya skomodeller. Det är för ,mig riktigt spännande eftersom de allra flesta anser att 5 Ten är det enda som gäller. Kommer Leatt kunna utmana dem. Ja, jag tror faktiskt det. Jag hoppas att jag har möjlighet att testa dem, för de är inte bara snygga utan produktbeskrivningen är helt klart övertygande. Känner jag Leatt rätt kommer även prisbilden vara plånboksvänlig.
Nedan är Leatt´s pressrelease
CAPE TOWN, South Africa, [03/03/2020] – The trusted international brand that developed the very first protective neck brace for riders, Leatt has launched their hotly anticipated first line of Twenty/Twenty MTB shoes, including the 2.0 flat shoes, 3.0 flat shoes, 4.0 clip shoes and 5.0 clip shoes in their popular DBX mountain bike range.
Leatt shoes have been developed and tested extensively from the deserts of Moab to the glaciers of the Alps. Durable shoes that do not compromise on style, comfort and control. Your shoes are one of the key touch points when riding, so there can be no compromise.
The Clip models feature an indexed SPD channel that’s compatible with all clipless pedals. With 25mm of adjustment and specifically 15mm more towards the rear, the shoes can be optimized for gravity riding, while the forward position aids pedal efficiency. Moreover, the extended rear adjustment helps reduce strain on the Achilles.
Leatt MTB shoes can really help you improve your riding skills as they can increase bike control. The secret lies in the shank, hidden above the sole of the shoe. The shank controls the shoes flex which determines what kind of riding it is optimized for. Softer shanks (Leatt 2.0) are optimized for trail riding, mid stiffness (Leatt 3.0) for rigorous riding conditions and the stiffest shanks (Leatt 4.0 & 5.0) maximize pedal efficiency.
The Leatt Lab focused heavily on producing a highly durable rubber compound called RideGrip for the sole that resists abrasions and punctures. While the WaffleGrip pattern is designed to interlock with pedal pins for phenomenal grip and bike control. The mud channels are awesome too, as they keep dirt off your soles, so your feet don’t slide off the pedals or rocks when walking with your bike.
Feet stay dry and ventilated, even on those long rides thanks to perforated toe boxes and a 10K/10K waterproof breathable membrane. They also have an anti-bacterial, anti-odor and quick drying foot liner to keep things fresh. It can be annoying when you are flowing down a trail and your shoes laces untie for no reason. Leatt have solved this problem as well with their compression laces. Anti-stretch and water resistant, they will lock the shoe on your foot until you take them off, guaranteeing bike control and comfort all day long.

Leatt´s nya jackor
För några år sedan stod jag handfallen inför ett överraskande skyfall. Rusar in till bike shoppen vid liftarna och köper en jacka i panik. För regn ska inte hindra fantastisk cykling. Jackan jag köpte på rea var en Leatt och blev mitt första möte med deras regnprodukter. Sedan dess är det favoritjackan. Den andas och står emot riktigt kladdigt väder. Dessutom smutsavvisande.
Nu lanserar Leatt tre helt nya modeller av jackor. En regnjacka, en softshell och en vindjacka. Tyvärr har jag inte hunnit testa dessa än. Men förhoppningsvis har jag möjlighet att göra det i framtiden. Håll dig uppdaterad. Nedan är deras pressrelease och måste säga att det låter riktigt bra.
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, [DATE] Leatt has unveiled the Twenty/Twenty MTB jacket line in their DBX range. This highly advanced apparel is designed to enhance your performance – with premium features like Leatt’s HydraDri membrane, patent pending magnetic hoods, brush guards, and drip proof cuffs, these jackets have everything a rider needs to weather a storm. All jackets have a tailored fit to maximise comfort and made from 4-way stretch, so you feel free to take on whatever awaits. The range includes the DBX 5.0 waterproof jacket, DBX 4.0 softshell jacket and the DBX 2.0 windblock jacket.
MTB 5.0 WATERPROOF JACKET
The LEATT DBX 5.0 Jacket is a high-performance jacket that will give you good times in bad weather. This jacket is made from Leatt’s HydraDri fabric (30.000mm/23.000g/m2) with all-round taped stitching, so you can withstand the worst of any harsh weather. The oversized hood can fit over your helmet and has a magnetic fix system that keeps the hood securely fixed to the helmet when riding or to the jacket to prevent flapping.
Large chest zip pockets are sealed for ultimate protection from the elements, they also act as huge vents when it’s time to take a break and have a goggle wipe inside, so you never lose sight of the trail. Hidden in the arms are silky storm proof cuffs that stop water from dripping down your arm. Anti-slip patches on the shoulders help stop backpacks from sliding down in wet conditions as well. If you are a mountain rider and have tried riding in wet weather – you will appreciate everything this jacket has to offer.
MTB 4.0 SOFTSHELL JACKET
This masterful soft-shell jacket is soft and strong at the same time. Compared to the DBX 5.0 jacket, the 4.0 softshell jacket has a luxurious MoistureCool fabric (10.000mm/10.000g/m2), suited for colder and dryer days outside. The oversized hood can fit over your helmet and has a magnetic fix system that keeps the hood securely fixed to the helmet when riding or to the jacket to prevent flapping. Water-resistant, windproof and breathable, even the most extreme elements have been catered to. Best of all, the four-way stretch material ensures optimal comfort. Snags and backpack slip are a thing of the past with shoulder patches and forearm brush guards. You can even adjust the front and back ventilation to your liking – so you stay at the perfect temperature all ride long.
MTB 2.0 WINDBLOCK JACKET
Unpredictable conditions don’t deter those who wear the 2.0 windblock jacket. Made from Leatt’s lightweight, four-way stretch material, it can easily be folded up into its own chest pocket for super compact storage. Take it with you wherever you go, so nothing has to stop you from riding. Water-resistant and breathable (5.000mm/5.000g/m2), bad weather is never a game changer in Leatt apparel. No more annoying hood flap either! The Leatt magnetic system fixes the hood to your helmet or back, so it does not get in your way and always stays on your head.
