Final up to date:
British bike helmet producer Ruroc has solely been round since 2019 however is now set to launch the fourth era of its Atlas full-face helmet.
The corporate claims its ECE 22:05 and DOT FMVSS218 authorized, carbon-fibre Atlas 4.0 helmet might be even quieter than the final mannequin.
I reviewed the Atlas 3.0 helmet in October 2021 and located it fairly comfy and filled with helpful options, however nonetheless had points with noise and the dearth of air flow management.
Firm spokesman Ben Conie says they’ve once more listened to rider suggestions in updating the helmet.
Adjustments embrace “upgrades to the inner acoustics” (no matter meaning), shell construction and air circulate.
The Atlas 3.0 is my go-to helmet in summer time for its air flow, however in winter it may be too “contemporary” as the one vent you possibly can shut is the chin vent.
Now all 4 vents within the chin, sides and prime will be managed. That may additionally cut back wind noise because the aspect vents are near the ears.
Additionally they say the “absolutely re-engineered inside construction suits seamlessly towards the decrease helmet trim, lowering turbulent air-flow inside liner gaps” to scale back noise.
The Atlas 4.0 might be launched on February 18 when extra particulars might be accessible.

Nonetheless particular graphic choices can takes the worth to $A810 for the Nebula Carbon and Liquid Carbon fashions.

I additionally hope they keep the very good boxing which contains a contoured foam pad to put your helmet on when it isn’t in your head.
