Anyone run one of these? how do they shape up? My head fits like a glove into TLD/IXS trail lids, but not much else it seems.
My Trail RS is now getting on a bit and took quite a big smack the other weekend so it’s time to replace. Leatt DBX looks decent with most of the features I want for under a ton at the moment.
If anyone;’s got one, do you use goggles with them, and if so, which ones? My main beef with my IXS lid is that it pushes my 100%s down onto my nose, and having ridden with goggles a few times, I’m a bit of a convert.
Can’t offer much help but I had to return the one I ordered. The helmet is actually really comfortable but I had an issue with the straps around my ears, the part where all the straps meet below your ear has 1 fixed length strap the was in the wrong place for me. I swapped it for a POC which was better, it may not be an issue for you though, best to try. Pity because I really liked the rest of it.
Oh really? That seems like an odd design! Every lid I’ve ever tried has both bits adjustable – I can see what you mean from looking at photos. Cheers for the feedback!
I’ve tried a POC one but my head was in between sizes – M was too small and L made me look like Toad from Mario Kart.
It sits high on the head but I don’t feel i’m exposed on the rear (using a medium), the straps could interfere with your ear lobes ( I don’t face this problem) It is on the heavier side and when i use the helmet at nights with a Diablo one feels the weight (but my night rides are short <2hrs). It breathes really well and is comfortable.
I have not yet tried it with goggles but can do so and revert back.
