AEROBLADE5 HURRICANE Helmet – Features
Supreme Lightness that Decreases the Load on the Rider
Kabuto adopted the FEM or Finite Element Method for the AEROBLADE5 HURRICANE. It’s a structural analysis technology for improving the strength on each part of the helmet.
It boasts of a safety level that easily passed the JIS standards. Plus, its lightweight form helps decrease the load on the rider’s neck.
Fresh Air Control
Kabuto ensures that their helmets provide adequate ventilation. With that, they included a newly-designed big air inlet for the OGK Kabuto AEROBLADE5 HURRICANE. It connects to the air route within the shell then suppresses fogging inside the shield to provide easier breathing.
Kabuto originally developed the Wake Stabilizer with patent 4311691 with the CFD. The CFD or 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics is placed on the helmet to reduce air resistance from its different areas. Aside from decreasing air resistance, it reduces stress on riders during long tours and more.
