The success from SpeedMob's Airoh helmets in the North American market this year has given the company a confidence boost to increase attention on more sales in the U.S. and Canada, Motorcycle.com reported.
Many off-road riders are not really familiar with the helmets from Airoh, but the company certainly looks to change that. As of right now, Europe is the biggest market for the brand of helmets, but the recent success in North America drove the company to release its 2015 line of Airoh Aviator 2.1 off-road helmets, the source reported.
More Colors And Graphics

The company will release four roll-over designs into the marketplace with new graphics and colors. Additionally, the company will offer a new "222" Antonio Cairoli replica helmet, a new Van Horebeek replica design and the Valor design that will have two different color schemes, the source reported.
"The first feature pro riders comment on is the exceptionally low weight of this helmet, as many riders equate 'heft to safety," the Airoh press release stated. "The proprietary multi-strand Carbon KevlarÂ® weave and engineered EPS liner ensures this helmet both maintains integrity and disperses energy from all angles with engineered points designed to fracture and absorb impact in worse case scenarios, much like modern cars have designed crumple zones to protect their passengers."
The helmet only weights just over 2 pounds, which will create a more comfortable ride compared to other heavier full-face designs. According to Championship Helmets, the Airoh Aviator 2.1 is now one of the lightest pieces of motorcycle equipment available for purchase.
Multiple Removable Pieces

The helmet comes in three different shell sizes: extra-small, small-to-medium and large-to-extra-large, the source reported. The shell is made from carbon and Kevlar composite and has a removable and washable lining. In the event of an emergency, the piece of equipment has a quick release system to remove cheek pads while decreasing any further damage to the rider's neck once it's removed.
The helmet also includes removable nose protection and an adjustable peak with two different lengths on the helmet. Also, riders can remove the dirt sponge located on the chin guard for cleaning or comfort.
The company has not released a price tag on the new helmets just yet, but they will likely be in the $430 range like its previous 2014 models, Auto Evolution reported.

The airflow of the Airoh Aviator 2.1 helmet allows riders to wear the helmet for long periods of time on the track or while taking on dirt trails, the company stated.
"Because the Aviator comes as a very complete package, all helmets come with top vent 'rain' covers, an extended peak visor, a GoPro mount and even a lanyard with helmet tool included in every box," Airoh stated.
The company's main focuses rest on rider comfort and safety in all conditions. The new helmet may be new to Canadian and American off-road riders, but the company has existed for 17 years and has 55 world titles to account for in the industry.
