First Look: Leatt 2022 Moto Collection – new 4.5 Enduro and under $100 3.5 Ride kits
Leatt has launched their new 2022 Moto Gear Collection that includes updates to their 5.5 and 4.5 jersey and pants as well as two completely new riding kits, the 4.5 Enduro gear seat and the cost friendly 3.5 Ride Kit.
Having a strong line-up of enduro riders – Jonny Walker, Ryan Sipes, Sandra Gómez, to name a few – using their kits and passing their inputs to the brand seems to have come handy for Leatt as they have launched a brand new off-road focused kit, the 4.5 Enduro riding gear.
The 4.5 Enduro jersey and pants feature multiple solutions to make them suitable and durable for trail use. The shirt uses abrasion and snag resistant mesh panels in the chest and arm areas to avoid the branches ripping it in your first ride.
For the pants, the south African brand has gone big with storage and ventilation solutions with one pocket each side of the thighs and a rear yoke storage pocket to help you have your valuables or riding gels at hands reach. The zipper vents on the legs will add extra airflow when the temperature rises.
The ripstop stretch panels used in the seat, thigh and knee areas ensure a long life for the pants without restricting freedom of movement Leatt claims. Additionally, all the panels feature a multi-row reinforcer stitching, YKK zippers and anti odor mesh lining to make them last longer and keep you cool while riding.
3.5 Ride kit – a gear set under the 100 price tag
For 2022 Leatt has presented a more affordable riding kit, jersey and pants, for both adults and kids that are looking to enjoy the solutions found in the higher spec gear but without making a hole in their wallets.
The jersey has a classic fit with 3D stretch mesh to improve the ventilation and comfort allowing the rider to wear it with protection under or over it. The pants feature breathable knit stretch panels for improved airflow with padded construction around the knee area to make them last longer. All these for just under $100/£90/€100.
