Bicycle Helmets & Riding Gear

Feb, 09, 2024


AERO-R2 is an aero road helmet with "aerodynamic performance" cultivated in the world of track competitions and "comfort" that allows you to concentrate on racing even in the toughest road races.

It is a practical helmet that demonstrates high aerodynamics with its shell structure, which was derived through repeated data analysis and wind tunnel testing, also with the rectifying effect of the "Air Tunnel Structure (PAT.P)" that utilizes airflow inside the helmet.

The newly released "AERO-R2 Mips" is the model equipped with a system called Mips (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) on AERO-R2.
The Mips system consists of a low-friction layer attached to the inside of the helmet. In the event of a crash, the low-friction layer is designed to move slightly within the helmet, helping to redirect the force away from the head. This is intended to reduce the risk of brain injury.

The graphic is based on the design used by Aleix Espargaró, a Kabuto supported rider and Mips ambassador who competes in MotoGP™, the world's premier motorcycle road race.
While competing in MotoGP™, Aleix also enjoys cycling and trains with some of the world's best cyclists.

The graphic design features a black base with dazzle camouflage all over the helmet and Aleix's favorite color, pink, as an accent. The top of the helmet also features Aleix's personal number, "41," in a bold layout.
