Air Speed Iridescent Matt Black
WE WENT BEYOND WIND TUNNEL
Studies have proved that about 20% of the aerodynamic drag depends on the bicycle used during competitions, while the remaining 80% is due to the athlete’s position on the saddle.
The helmet is therefore the fundamental element to minimize the frontal area and to determine a better aerodynamic penetration.
And then the wind tunnel tests…
Not only with three-dimensional simulation supports, using CFD software, but also taking into account the numerous variables, especially in competitions, when the rider hardly remains on the saddle in the same position, moving the head countless times.
And here comes our Limar Airspeed: designers found the perfect combination between aerodynamic advantage (wind tunnel test) and better dynamics both on open roads and in velodromes (tests in real-life environmental conditions).
It was during one of the recent road training sessions in Calp and indoor at the Valencia velodrome, that the Astana Team riders were able to really test the helmet. They got incredibly excited of the characteristics that make AIR SPEED the ideal helmet.
Limar AIR SPEED helmet is the first model born of LIMAR AIR REVOLUTION.
Also developed in collaboration with the Astana Pro Team, it was the best at an average speed of 40 km / h, during the comparative tests carried out in the Magny-Cours wind tunnel in France.
Twelve air vents and three longitudinal ducts that channel the outflow of hot air flow and speed it, allowing a better and immediate internal cooling, to keep the head cool throughout the duration of the performance.
Its aerodynamic and compact design, with an attractive shape and tapered lines make it a helmet to be used even in everyday outings.
