Leatt: What is 360 Turbine Technology?
Using our vast experience and high-tech testing facilities, we created our own system in the Leatt lab to help reduce the risk of sustaining serious head and brain injuries in a crash. All Leatt helmets feature our category-defining 360° Turbine Technology.
What does it do?
Our 360° Turbine Technology not only mitigates rotational acceleration, but also low-velocity linear acceleration that has been shown, if repeated, to have cumulative effects on the frequency and severity of concussion and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). In short, this brain injury reduction technology significantly reduces the risk of sustaining serious head and brain injuries during a crash.
How does it work?
Disc-shaped turbines made of Armourgel, a non-Newtonian polymer that can absorb energy, are strategically placed all along the inside of the helmet’s EPS liner. So, when you put the helmet on, they are positioned directly against the skull.
In a crash, these turbines deform and bend, reducing rotational impact forces and absorbing energy from the impact. This technology can absorb both low-velocity linear and rotational impact forces in a crash.
It’s the smartest safety choice for any thrill-seeking rider!
