Airoh Twist – a thermoplastic offroad helmet with adjustable peak
Italian helmet manufacturer, Airoh, has just announced the launch of their Twist offroad helmet. It’s designed to be a light weight thermoplastic helmet at a low price point – a tad over $100 at launch. It should have all the usual features you’d expect of a motocross helmet – including removable and washable lining and double-d ring chin strap. Nice extra features are the adjustable peak, a wider than average aperture designed to fit a wide range of goggles, and a removable dust filter to help keep ventilation to an optimum during off road riding.
It’s currently available in a range of ten color schemes and designs.
While the Twist does look funky and is genuinely light at just under 2.65lbs/1.2Kg, Airoh’s that have been SHARP tested to date have scored an average of just over 3/5 stars, so we’re not sure if the Twist is going to fair any better (though granted it’s been quite a while since any Airoh was last tested).
- 2.65lbs/1.2Kg (light weight)
- Thermoplastic shelled
- Adjustable peak
- Removable and washable liner/filter
- Sizes XS – XXL
- Expect to pay around $200ish
Here’s Airoh’s release video for the Twist.
