Kabuto will release "FLEX-AIR", the lightweight model which outstanding feeling and cooling performance.
Based on the concept that "lightweight is the ultimate sphere", a sphere-based exterior design was designed in pursuit of "lightweight".
The shape has been stripped down to the bare minimum, and the shell has been hollowed out in order to realise the development concept of lightweight, even if only slightly. Furthermore, a weight reduction of 8.8g has been achieved by reviewing the component structure of the conventional top model gram by gram.
In addition to weight reduction, the "floating structure" and "KBF-2 adjuster", which have been proven in previous models, have been adopted for comfort performance.
In the floating structure*, the newly equipped Y-shaped top pad "Air Flow Pad" reduces the contact area between the helmet and head, improving ventilation performance and contributing to weight reduction.
The riding position and air hole angle have also been optimised to provide efficient airflow to cool the head.
*Air routes are secured by floating the helmet from the head, furthermore the helmet is less likely to come into direct contact with the head, reducing discomfort during prolonged wear.
The KBF-2 adjuster, featuring fine adjustment and uniform tightening for a good feeling, fits securely to different head shapes, and the large-diameter dial of the Boa® Fit System allows instant adjustment and easy operation.
The sharpened 'lightness' and further evolved 'comfort performance' demonstrate high performance from the toughest race scenes to every riding.
