Leatt's '360° Turbine' technology it is a patented safety design. Made from an energy-absorbing material, the pads placed inside the helmet improve rider safety by reducing both the low-impact energy associated with concussion and rotational acceleration of the brain.

Our safety goals have been very high during the development of our helmets, beyond what was previously available to motorcyclists. With the '360° Turbine' technology, we have protection against the 3 main causes of head and brain injuries, and this technology is present in all our helmets – dr. Chris Leatt.
The combination of these two aspects of protection is unique in our patented system. If we take into account the shockproof foam of the helmet, we get a real 3-in-1 safety solution – dr. Chris Leatt.
How do Leatt helmets fight forces?
- Anti-rotation protection with '360° Turbine' technology
o Optimally designed turbine discs allow the helmet to move slightly on the head upon impact, reducing peak acceleration to the head and brain.
- Reduced impact protection thanks to '360° Turbine' technology
o Special energy-absorbing material in the pad absorbs the low-impact energy associated with concussion.
- High impact protection with shock absorbing foam
o Helmet impact foam liner absorbs high impact energy.
Leatt guarantees that every helmet produced includes the '360° Turbine' technology, a testament
dedication to biker safety.
Technology developed and perfected in the Leatt Lab
The Leatt Lab is a state-of-the-art, custom-built research and development facility. It is made up of a dedicated team of a doctor, biomedical engineers and product designers driven by one mission: to create the safest and most effective protective gear for bikers.
The development of 360° Turbine Technology is the result of rigorous testing and innovations that take place in the Leatt Lab. Every aspect of the technology, from the unique energy-absorbing material and its geometry to the strategic placement of the turbines, is studied and tested .
To ensure optimal performance, the helmets are subjected to a variety of impact scenarios that mimic real-world riding conditions. These comprehensive tests ensure that the '360° Turbine' technology offers excellent protection in various crash situations and provides fantastic safety for the rider. For verification purposes, third-party laboratories are also used to test the performance of Leatt products.
