The Italian Brand Airoh is a modern reference in the construction of off-road helmets. Champions such as Antonio Cairoli in Motocross, or Taddy Blazusiak in Enduro, currently rely on Airoh helmets for their safety. In fact this Brand has clocked up 61 world titles, and all this in a short time as Airoh originated in 1997, founded by Antonio Locatelli, who at the time was a distributor for other brands of helmets. Thanks to his in depth knowledge of the sector acquired as a distributor, the Bergamo Brand now creates its own products for asphalt as well as mud.
Part of the success achieved by Airoh resides in the lightweight design of their models, which make them real featherweights. This is due, in part, to the use of lightweight, but strong materials: most Airoh helmets are made of fibre, including some exclusive models in carbon fibre. As already mentioned, Airoh is the choice of many professionals and the brand, knowing this, equips its helmets with functions that are very useful in competition, such as the emergency release system or mounts for video cameras. And as off-road is not just motocross and enduro, Airoh forms part of the reduced market that make Trial helmets.
The Italian Brand also has a complete selection of road models. And we say complete, because it really is. They have full face and modular models. The range of modular helmets is wider: made of thermoplastic resin, they follow Airoh’s pattern of lightness, but incorporate comforts such as the integrated sun visor, for example. As well as the touring models, Airoh has bet on more urban modulars, a type of city helmet ideal for users of maxiscooters.
We must say that the full face helmets respond to a completely sports focus. For example, Loris Capirossi raced with an Airoh during his last years in MotoGP. Airoh still has a long road in front of it, where Antonio Locatelli will continue to innovate and improve his daring designs, which make this brand one of the most thriving manufactures of the sector.
