We have tested for you the top of the range from Locatelli, theAiroh Helmet Aviator 2.3
Used for a full day off-road, theAiroh Aviator 2.3 proved to be a really hard-to-match helmet for safety, weight, features and comfort.
Airoh produces helmets motorcycle, motocross, road and full-face and modular helmets for many years now and the huge investments in research and development have allowed Locatelli SpA to achieve very high levels of safety and quality.
In addition to the decidedly beautiful and unconventional look, with this gold that shoots on black, the helmet, even if never worn before, once worn on the head immediately gives a tangible feeling of safety and comfort.
The weight of only 1040 grams (we tried the size M) is obtained thanks to the fibers of Carbon and Kevlar and the use of the best materials on the market for components and interiors. Developed around the heads of Airoh's pilots, like that of the legendary Antonio Cairoli, the Aviator 2.3 incorporates technology AMSS which allows to support the twisting movements of the head inside the helmet in the event of a collision, and to avoid further trauma to the riders.
The interiors, with magnetic attachment and release (very comfortable and super quick to remove and put back) are cool and ventilated, both thanks to the ventilation channels and to the microphores that allow the skin to breathe.
In addition to the quick release cheek pads in the event of an accident, under the chin there are the loops for the hydration system tube and a set of accessories truly unique: helmet bag, peak extension, spare screw kit, GoPro mount, cover and closing caps of the ventilation system for use in winter or in the rain.
What we liked: lightness, safety, materials, graphics.
What we didn't like: slightly rigid closure strap (but only at the beginning, then let go)
Conclusion: a top-of-the-range helmet that borders on perfection, has an adequate price for the characteristics and certainly not the cheapest, the Novak version costs 659 Euros price list, but as always I want to remind everyone that your head, especially in sports such as cross and off-road, is always worth infinitely more.
