BMW AirFlow 2 motorcycle helmet

The BMW Motorrad AirFlow 2 helmet is a completely new development in which the latest safety concepts and simulation methods have been used. One of the key concerns was optimum ventilation. This is another modern, urban design in which high-quality aluminium components and the inner visor create an unmistakable look. The AirFlow 2 helmet is already prepared for the BMW Motorrad communication system. The control unit was developed specially for this helmet; it can be retrofitted as an option without compromising on the helmet’s performance.

The outer shell of the AirFlow 2 helmet is available in three sizes and consists of plastic with high-tensile glass fibre reinforcements (composite). Inside, a four-piece main shell foamed from EPS in a variety of densities (multidensity shell) and two cheek pads ensure maximum safety. The liner is removable and washable. The three-dimensionally curved visor has antiscratch coating on both sides and can be changed quickly and easily.

Integrated neck straps reduce twisting on the AirFlow 2 helmet. This feature is only use in a small number of helmets throughout the world and ensures that the AirFlow 2 helmet can provide the best possible protection in the event of an accident. The chin strap is fitted with a ratchet lock that combines the benefits of double D locks (variability) with those of conventional push-in locks (quick and easy to use). With its highly efficient air circulation, developed in numerous computer simulations, wind tunnel trials and rider tests, the AirFlow2 helmet really lives up to its name. The placement of the aeration and ventilation opening was chosen to ensure a major difference in pressure. This increases circulation significantly. Because air passes into the inner shell through numerous channels, the head is kept at a cool, even temperature.

The AirFlow 2 helmet is available in the following trendsetting colours: Night Black, Light Grey Metallic, Titanium Silver Metallic, Magnesium Metallic Matt and Cosmic Blue Metallic Matt.
