Scorpion EXO-R2000 Masbou

Alexis Masbou, who recently finished third in the Moto3 German Grand Prix, is one of the latest and greatest to have a helmet customized in his honor. Scorpion fashioned their EXO-R200 with splendid colors and a unique phoenix graphic giving an overall aggressive helmet for the French rider. See what Scorpion has to say about the EXO-R2000 Masbou.

“Designed and developed with Moto3 star Alexis Masbou, the EXO-R2000 is Scorpionís flagship performance race helmet. Built with exclusive TCT® composite shell construction, the lightweight EXO-R2000 was developed by Scorpion engineers with input from MotoGP™ riders and tested on the track as well as in the lab. Scorpionís exclusive Ellip-Tec™ ratchet technology ensures a tight seal around the shield while the advanced aero-tuned ventilation system produces generous airflow and circulation throughout the helmet. The aerodynamically designed tear-drop shell shape minimizes buffeting at high speeds and the AirFit® cheekpad system ensures a custom snug fit. The EXO-R2000 comes equipped with Emergency Release cheek pads, a standard EverClear® shield PLUS a bonus Dark Smoke EverClear® shield. Pinlock® MaxVision®-ready flat shields with tearoff posts are available as an accessory for the track. Scorpionís DNA is infused into every facet of the EXO-R2000 and the result is a new benchmark for quality and value in a premium helmet.”

Adventure is in the Air

We’re here to tell you about the latest and greatest that Klim has to offer. Taking a note from the Adventure Rally Jacket, Klim has gone to the next level to bring the new and improved Adventure Rally Air Jacket. Now more adaptable, breathable and indestructible than before; the Adventure Rally Air Jacket is designed for all weather conditions in any season. Most notably, it is built to withstand the heat making it more than suitable for hot riding conditions all over the world. Let’s take a look at the construction that gives way to its functionality.

  • heavy duty Kevlar mesh with Superfabric overlays gives ultra ventilation and ultra tear and abrasion resistance
  • adjustable internal harness disburses weight evenly and reduces overall heat
  • shoulder, elbow and back padding is bomb proof and absorbs impact energy
  • D30 Xergo shoulder and elbow pads offer protection across extreme temperature whilst remaining flexible and breathable
  • D30 Viper Pro back pad is the ultimate D30 back protector with breathable and flexible Airwave Technology
  • ample cargo space includes a hydration compartment with a 3L bladder, a side hip compartment with easy access while riding and a lower back compartment.

 

 

With all the spectacular features that the Adventure Rally Air Jacket boasts, there’s one more that is worth mentioning. While this jacket is optimal in very hot weather conditions, it is adaptable to colder temperatures or evening riding simply by throwing on the Klim Gore-Tex Over-Shell Jacket. Despite the name, the Over-Shell Jacket is small, compact and portable enough for daily storage. The Gore-Tex construction is a three layer fabric that creates a water and wind-proof barrier backed by a GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY waterproof and breathable layer. There is also various reflective panels for increased night time visibility.

Klim continues to set the bar with both the Adventure Rally Air and the Gore-Tex Over-Shell Jackets. The Adventure Rally Air alone is a superb jacket, but with the Gore-Tex Over-Shell it is a truly superior jacket for all riders in all conditions.

Icon Airmada Chantilly

Icon does it again with the Airmada Chantilly helmet! The new graphic helmet features an impressive blend of chantilly lace, plaid and Día de Muertos-esque skulls in either Black Rubatone or Gloss White. The intricate artwork has many worldly influences, one of them being from Chantilly, France. As the name implies, chantilly lace originated from Chantilly in the 17th century; hailed for its fine ground pattern and sophisticated detail.

Icon also takes a page from Mexico’s Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday in adding skulls to the mix.

With a helmet this elegant yet tough, it’s no wonder that it’s in high demand to both male and female riders.

Turtley Awesome Rossi

Before Marc Marquez, there was Valentino Rossi. Dubbed the “The Doctor,” Rossi is a professional motorcycle racer known for his multiple MotoGP World Championships. An Italian native, Rossi’s love for racing started a young age with kart racing and continued to grow as he did.

In honor of Rossi’s legacy, AVG has dedicated the Corsa Turtle Rossi Replica Helmet. The helmet is a colorful attraction featuring a turtle with big bright blue eyes. Rossi considers the animal to be very significant as he’s said the turtle was a mascot from his youth. It all started when his mother got him a stuffed turtle toy that he would then attach to his helmet while racing. Despite their size and speeds, turtles have come out on top though the popular saying “slow and steady wins the race.” Much like our nine time Grand Prix World Champ – Valentino Rossi.
