Ride with the confidence in knowing that the R1Air meets the same level of protection that our world class WSBK and MotoGP pilots demand. This is thanks to the combination of our multilayered, resin-infused TCT Ultra composite shell and multi-layered, multi-density impact absorbing EPS liner that work in tandem to dissipate and absorb impacts.
Complimenting quiet aerodynamics, the R1 Air also features a combined chin curtain and wrap around neck roll design that not only seals out the wind turbulence created by the bulging individual cheek pads, the resulting streamlined bottom edge eliminates it altogether.
Anchoring the Pinlock® MaxVision® shield is the Elliptec® II ratchet mechanism. Called Elliptec® because of its elliptical rotation, the double-axis movement pulls the shield firmly into and against the injection molded eye port gasket and locks securely into place with its center locking mechanism. This ensures that all elements stay on the outside and simultaneously aids in noise reduction.
