Leatt 6.0 Carbon Helmet

Leatt certainly wasn't addressing a budget-conscious crowd when it developed its 6. 0 Carbon Helmet, but then again, it's hard to place a value on a helmet that more than excels at its intended function. If you're in the habit of going big on the DH/freeride course or BMX circuit, we'd suggest taking a look at the design. It's one of Leatt's first forays into the helmet realm and it's also certainly one that's attracted attention from its competitors. Using a mix of new proprietary technology and a sleek, featherweight carbon construction, Leatt created a helmet that was smaller and lighter than most on the market but that preserves the ability to absorb multiple low-speed impacts and rotational forces while remaining functional and light. The helmet's shell comes first in any impact with the ground, and Leatt addressed not only the material the shell is constructed with but also the shape of the shell itself. In the case of the 6. 0 Carbon, that interaction consists of a carbon in-mold shell fused to an impact-absorbing inner layer of EPS foam. Leatt specifically shaped the outer shell to eliminate any unnecessary material and provide a contoured fit around the head and neck, minimizing rotational forces. Further addressing growing concerns over impact absorption and the benefits of multiple-impact protection, Leatt's 360 Turbine Technology takes care of both, and though it took us a few moments of skepticism to understand, we believe the offbeat technology is deserving of its merits. 360 Turbine refers to an assortment of buttons--bear with us--made out of a relatively new material known as Armourgel. Renowned for its ability to become rigid upon impact, Armourgel is extremely efficient at effectively blocking impact forces--specifically from low-speed impacts. With small buttons of Armourgel strategically placed between the helmet's shell and its EPS liner, Leatt's 6. 0 aims to stop as much force as possible from traveling through the rest of the helmet.

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
