PRESS RELEASE: Leatt

New All Mountain Collection Features Innovative Storage Solutions

The jerseys, pants, and shorts offer integrated storage features so riders can carry everything for all day rides without needing a pack -- Using a concealed waist strap built into the jersey, and a tunnel at the back waist of the pants.

We have reinvented our All Mountain product collection with all-new jerseys, pants, and shorts that offer a thoughtful integration of cargo carrying features. This range of apparel allows riders to comfortably carry what they need for all day adventures without having to wear a bulky pack.

The ALL-MTN Jerseys are built with innovative cargo pockets and a hidden waist support belt. This acts as an integrated hip pack built directly into the jersey, while the waist belt keeps everything in place, preventing the annoying feeling of saggy jersey pockets or a shifting hip pack. A carrier loop on the chest provides safe and convenient sunglass storage. The ALL-MTN jerseys are offered at four price points with sizes ranging from XS to XXXL.

The long sleeve MTB 5.0 ALL-MTN Jersey, retailing at USD $119.00, is a high-performance all-weather option with a windblock front shell and insulating fleece lining. The long sleeve MTB 4.0 ALL-MTN Jersey is the warmer weather version of the 5.0, without the windblock front & better ventilation all around, retailing at $89.99. The 3.0 Jersey, retailing at USD $74.99, is the short sleeve version of the 4.0. jersey. All models are made with sustainable, eco-conscious fabric that offers a natural cooling function. The 5.0, 4.0 and 3.0 Jerseys offer the hidden, low profile hipbag feature, with integrated pockets on the back.

ALL-MTN Jersey Technology

For riders looking for a more budget oriented option, and not necessarily in need of the stabilizing waist belt feature, there is also the 2.0 jersey that combines a technical, performance fabric with the casual style of a t-shit (USD $54.99).

ALL-MTN Bottoms:

The ALL-MTN pants and shorts include the unique Rear Mission Pack, which is a tunnel style pocket designed for holding a convertible helmet chin bar, protective gear, or a jacket. For chin bars, two additional loops hidden in the tunnel can be used for a more secure fit without annoying movement.

Cargo carrying capacity is further maximized with four water resistant and padded pockets, plus a key loop. The durable 4-way stretch outer shell is dirt and water resistant while offering superior comfort and increased breathability. The knee and crotch sections are made of a very flexible yet robust, aramid-like “Rockstrike” material. These pants and shorts are designed and constructed to be durable in the roughest riding conditions.

The ALL-MTN 5.0 Pants retail at USD $179.00, and the 3.0 Shorts retail at USD $139.00.

ALL-MTN Pant Short Technology

Rounding out the All Mountain collection are the ALL-MTN helmets, featuring extended rear coverage for added protection, with adjustable/breakaway visors and Maxiflow Air Channels for impressive airflow. All Leatt helmets feature 360 ̊ Turbine Technology. This system reduces both rotation acceleration and concussion level impact energy to your head and brain, so you can be more confident to push your limits. The Leatt ALL-MTN helmet line extends across three sizes and four price points, ranging in retail price from USD $69.99 to USD $199.99. Leatt's convertible Enduro helmets are a perfect fit as well.

The updated Leatt All Mountain collection offers innovative storage solutions unmatched by anything else on the market. No other manufacturer has integrated so many different storage solutions into a collection of mountain bike clothing.

 I mean I've been looking for a way to carry a removable chinbar for years. I have a 3d printed spacer in my headset for it and I've built hip pack carriers for it. It's a real problem. I just haven't seen a dumber solution than this.

 @mountainsofsussex: You can, did take me three times to get used to it, but no problem.
Yes, I am a leatt emplyee, but it really does work.
Even if I just tested the chin bar attchment to get to know if/how it works. I use the tunnel at the back only for kneepads and / or a light rain jacket.
The look of the pants had to grew at me, first, but at the end the combo of a shitload of flex, but still very robust material at crotch and knee made it my favorite riding pants. the all black one also doesn't look too outdoorsy. Had only be riding Leatt DH pants in the past, also for trail riding.

 Very often (or pretty much always), the helmet has a good place where you can store these chin bars. As open as they are now, I don't think they really restrict breathing. They may only get in the way when you try to drink from a bottle or want to eat.
  • 2 0
 @Mtmw: I never rode it with a detachable chin bar, only with slim knee pads / light wind jackets in there.

I do get the argument in general with not packing hard stuff at spine, but on the Chin Bar at back of the hip: you only wear it there on long climbs, very low speed and quite unlikely to crash, because when the DH part starts, you will put the Chinguard back onto the helmet.

Short: the chin bar storage is for Climbing.
And many I guess will like me not use it for these, but pads and jackets.

 It is much more holistic, cargo carrying option could be anything. Hook and loop patches, straps, magnets, sticky sections... A pocket only one option.

 Saw the headline and thought exactly the same thing. The article does point out that they are *innovative* storage solutions though, so I was expecting more of a wizard's sleeve type thing.

 Not saying anything about the products themselves, but it seems once again women don't need clothes with pockets as there aren't (currently) any women's models available. Guess we'll continue riding with our little purses.

 I found it quite interesting that their website has sections for (among others) Protection, Apparel and Women. I didn't dare to look what they sell in the 'Women' section, but the Apparel section sells apparel and the Protection section sells protection....

 @ak-77: I'm pretty sure in the past Leatt's had a "secret" women's line.

I'm a man, and pretty much always either a medium or a large in MTB clothes, depending on the manufacturer's sizing, and how much "bulking up in the off season" I've been doing.

I've had a couple Leatt Jerseys and shorts in the past, and was somewhere in between those two sizes.

Last year I ordered a Leatt Jersey and pants in a Large, and they fit like a skinsuit. I exchanged them both for XL, and they were still in the "a bit too sexy" size range.

I went back and checked the product page, and didn't see anything unusual. Then later on at a few group rides I ran into a few women wearing the same jeresy. I went back to the product page, and didn't see anything specifying that they were for women. But the sizing made much more sense as women's sizing.

To be clear, I've got no issue wearing "women's" gear as a man. I just want to be able to order the right size.

 @ak-77: Yeah Leatt seems to be one of those brands that mainly offer products, with a small side of "women's products". Based on their website they currently offer 19 different types of clothing (jerseys, pants, shorts, jackets) for women, while for men there are 64 different options. And I do get the whole catering to the larger audience thing, but I'd still like to see mainly the same options offered for everyone regardless of gender. And definitely not this innovating for one gender and maybe some time in the future bringing the same stuff available for others too. (While these cargo miracles for men are labelled as All Mtn 4.0, the latest women's range is one iteration behind at 3.0.)
  • 3 1
 @atourgates: IMO, having separate lines labeled along sex distinction isn't really optimal from a fit perspective. I can understand the fashion argument for it. But when it comes to men's and women's body sizes and proportions, the differences within sexes are at least as large as the average difference between the sexes. I worked at an outdoor store selling hiking boots when I was a student. I've had to do a lot of effort convincing men with short narrow feet or women with long wide feet to buy the best fitting footwear, just because of the sex-specific labeling.
  • 3 0
 @ak-77: I partially agree, but not necessarily 100%. It would absolutely be great to have all kinds of clothes designed and labelled by body shape, proportions, height and such, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. At the same time pretty much all the current "unisex" stuff consists of clothes following the traditionally male designs and shapes.

Having followed and discussed shopping for fitting clothes more with women, I'd say that a) the absolute majority does find the best fitting clothes from the women's lines and b) the ones with maybe less curvy bodies have no issues shopping around in the men's section. I would guess that less (cis) men have the need for clothes designed for that more or less hourglass shape, but indeed like you pointed out, many of the ones that would find better fitting clothes from the women's line don't want to buy those. I'm not going to go to the whole societal aspect here on PB, but I'm not sure if getting rid of the gendered labels is the only solution to this.

Being a tall woman myself - shaped like a stereotypical woman, but the size of an average man - this has definitely always been an issue for myself. I'm often too tall and wide for the women's stuff (for example Leatt has nothing to offer to me - although I'm partially assuming as they give no hip measurements for their clothing), but my proportions also don't work with the men's clothes. Even shoes can be difficult, I have often get mine from the men's line, but often I'd also want to have the women's model in a larger size but it doesn't exist. But yeah, from all the gear especially sports shoes could and should easily be rid of the gendered labelling, instead offering the different models (and colours) in a wider size range.

 I saw all the pockets and thought my wife would love these especially for trail work days. Disappointed indeed.
  • 15 0
 Is there any kind of protection or padding between the jersey pockets and the rider? Part of the reason I choose a hip pack is for that bit of padding so I don't have a multitool pressed right up against my lower back ready to stab me in a crash.

 Put the tool on the bike. No, no, the multi tool he's carrying.

 Leatt makes great products, I love the stuff I have of theirs but a chinbar holder looks like a trip to the E.R. “Doc. I swear, I fell on it and that’s how it ended up in my keester”
  • 2 1
 So I have been riding with a convertible helmet for years now, shut up... I like them... anyway. I have always struggled with where to put the chin bar when not using it but after a while found it straps nicely to my USWE Airborne 3. the main draw back is on wet days mud gets flung up there occasionally but not too bad. putting the chin bar lower down on the back of the pants (also sideways which seems very awkward) it will get caked in mud.
  • 2 0
 With a hip pack, it's easy to stash the chin piece (loosen belt, put chin piece through it, position just off center on the back). For short tides without the hip.pack, a gear tie (looks like a bog twist toe) keeps it strapped to the bars.
  • 5 1
 I also used to like them. Had a Bell Super DH. After a couple years of riding the chinbar attachment broke and I got a Specialized Gambit instead. It's such a light and well ventilated helmet. Don't see a point of the removable chinbars anymore. My local riding involves climbing 800 vertical meters for 1h30min on mountain roads followed by 20min long DH runs. I usually don't take this helmet off during the climb. It's just so comfy and light.

 @tomsgr: good to hear about the Gambit. Got one on a steal for park days with my youngins. I have yet to ride with it, might try it on some of trail rides.
