Aftermarket giant Touratech unveils all-new Aventuro Carbon 2 helmet with design modifications making it more aerodynamic, better vented and more glove-friendly
Adventure fans rejoice, as Touratech unveils a new high-tech lid called Aventuro Carbon 2. The second iteration of their helmet introduces multiple design upgrades meant to improve air flow, both on the outside and inside of the shell, better materials and a new shell size.
The Aventuro Carbon 2 is now available in sizes XS through 3XL, the latter being the new size Touratech decided to bring to the market. The airflow was improved by a claimed 40% for unparalleled cooling during slow offroad rides.
This new lid now comes with 6 adjustable intakes and 4 exhausts, with rerouted channels in the EPS liner and Coolmax comfort liner. All the mobile vent covers are easier to operate with gloved fingers, making adjustments on the fly a (proper) breeze.
Aventuro Carbon 2 is equipped with a synthetic leather neck roll and chin curtain, and Touratech says that this material will have a longer life, plus added comfort. The face shield is removable, and a clip was added in the back of the helmet, helping riders who prefer goggles to have them secured in place. The visor is adjustable, just like it was in the first version of the helmet, but it was redesigned for less drag.
The shell and interior foam liner were redesigned to accommodate intercom speakers, while dedicated wire channels and an exterior space to clamp a Bluetooth unit are standard. Also, dedicated action camera mount surfaces are now present on the top and on both sides of the lightweight, ultra-strong carbon fiber shell.
Touratech also paid attention to emergency situations and equipped the Aventuro Carbon 2 with removable cheek pads that help first responders take the helmet off more easily if needed. The double-D ring strap retention system makes fine adjustments a child’s play, too.
Aventuro Carbon 2 is DOT and ECE 22.05 certified and is supplied with a Pinlock fog insert, in three color schemes: Core stands for sober carbon looks, Companero introduces neon yellow accents, while the Sport version is an ageless combination of white, blue and red Africa Twin or BMW riders will most likely love.
Having the latest Touratech lid is a $599-649 affair, with the dollar sign probably replaced by the € on the European side of the pond.
