Leatt’s new Velocity 6.5 goggles have been fully tried and tested, and I really rate them. I’m a firm believer you can’t put a price on your eyes. And I’d suggest the way in which tracks are over prepped, mixed with the power in which the bikes produce nowadays, is recipe for lots of roost. Why anyone would you put on a cheap set of goggles is beyond me, writes Dave Willet.
Leatt is a company that’s all about safety and the Velocity 6.5 goggles are tested to be genuinely bulletproof. It’s a huge bonus that they also look great and fit perfectly. Leatt has a wide range of designs and different lens spec but the main thing you need to know is there are proven and the lens is shatterproof which speaks volumes. You might assume such a lens would be overkill but the roost from a 450 is dangerous. There are different lens tint options and the lens is super easy to remove, too.
I found the frame and foam really comfortable when riding. I’ve used the goggles on some long enduro rides as well as the more obvious motocross and I haven’t experienced one issue. They offer a wide vision and the lens hasn’t logged up.
The wide strap grabs and holds on to the helmet perfectly and once you’ve set your goggles in position, you won’t have to give them a second thought. They are comfortable and work flawlessly.
