Limar no sooner unveiled its latest Air Speed helmet a few weeks ago, the Italian brand introduced its newest aero lid today called the Air Pro.
The Air Pro made its debut along the steep slopes of Mount Etna under the auspices of Team Astana during today’s stage of the Giro d’Italia.
The Air Pro represents Limar’s most well-ventilated helmet to date, featuring as many as twenty vents, along with eight inner channels, which are designed to funnel maximum airflow to the rider while still keeping things aero.
Compared to the Air Speed and other Limar models, the Air Pro features a series of longitudinal ribs that make up a pyramid-like shape in order to allow air to pass more efficiently through the helmet, while the longer tail is designed to reduce turbulence by providing smoother roll-off of air at the back of the helmet.
Additionally, the Air Pro also incorporates what Limar calls “transversal wings”, which are carbon trusses that run between each longitudinal rib.
Limar says, these additional pieces not only serve to further improve the Air Pro’s aerodynamic properties, but also contribute to the structural integrity of the helmet’s EPS foam core.
The Air Pro also benefits from Limar’s lightweight Air Fit retention system, which allows for precise horizontal and vertical adjustment, along with a small rotary dial to fine tune fit.
According to Limar, the Air Pro weighs in at a respectable 270g (size medium), and it will be available in two size (medium and large), along with an array of different color choices.
Pricing for the US market is yet to be announced.
