Air Pro Helmet
Limar is always on the forefront of bicycle helmet construction, continuing to push its developments to increase safety while finding new ways to cheat the wind, open up vents, and drop some grams. Its newest lid, the Air Pro Helmet, is designed in Italy with feedback from the Astana Pro Cycling Team and honed with time spent in the wind tunnel in Magny Cours.
Limar claims that the Air Pro is 20% more efficient when compared to its own Ultralight+. This equates to one second saved over every 10km. It's able to achieve this by slimming down the helmet by building an extremely lightweight and strong framework dubbed Carbon Coretech.
Using the unique properties of carbon and coupling it with EPS foam, Limar was able to create a core that met stringent safety requirements with a minimum thickness. Essentially, two structural carbon "wings" span the helmet, providing the strength and opening the doors to tweak aerodynamics and ventilation. The pyramidal surface of the longitudinal ribs reduces the impact pressure as its better able to cut through the wind while the reduced thickness allows for easy air intake and improved circulation inside the shell. Furthermore, the helmet's extended tail decreases air resistance by allowing for a gradual detachment that prevents turbulence.
Final helmet details include its AirFit-System with vertical and horizontal adjustment and webbing connection and its antibacterial and washable inner pads.
