Limar S.r.L. (Italy) - Limar AIR PRO helmet boasts an extremely innovating production process in which the use of carbon fiber, due to its high mechanical resistance and lightweight, it becomes the heart of the helmet.
Main feature is the CARBONCORETECH:
The 3K carbon coupled inside with EPS gives top resistance core. Two structural wings merge with the side ribs of the shell, creating a highly performing cage.
So far used as a finish, the 3K carbon is now co-moulded with EPS in 5 layers, not as a simple film (only one or two layers maximum). It is the same process used for building bike frames. In this way it takes an exceptional mechanical resistance, allowing the use of the thinnest thickness. The carbon now becomes the soul of the helmet, acting with the expanded polystyrene to create a highly performing cage in terms of safety and allowing to optimize ventilation on the head of the riders, and the aerodynamics of the air flows around the helmet.
The pyramidal surface of the longitudinal ribs reduces the impact pressure since it cuts the air and allows a smooth sliding. The very thin carbon wings allow easy inflow and improved air circulation. The extended tail prevent turbulence: the mathematical simulation CFD datas integrated with Wind Tunnel tests demonstrate an increase in aerodynamic efficiency of 20% compared to the LIMAR Ultralight+ model, proved also by the several tests achieved in velodromes/wind tunnels (tests in real-life environmental conditions with Astana Team riders).
Mips is a Brain Protection System made by a low friction layer that allows a sliding movement of 10-15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact.
Limar chose a new exclusive Mips solution, much lighter and more ventilated than the common one. This is achieved through the integration of the Mips Brain Protection System and the LIMAR comfort padding, the result is enhanced comfort, fit and great air flow inside the helmet.
