The IBEX bike helmet by HJC is fancy, smart and stylish. With this aero helmet you will stand out from the crowd. It features 16 vents using the Venturi effect for active ventilation. The helmet’s aerodynamic design is the result of numerous wind tunnel tests. The lightweight uses an X-STATIC liner and offers a built-in goggle mount for all those seeking additional performance on the road.

Thanks to their experience in the field of motorcycles, the HJC designers and developers are true experts when it comes to perfect, aerodynamic helmets. It takes many years of experience and extensive knowledge about air flow behaviour to achieve a balance between a helmet’s shape and minimum wind resistance. Thanks to the experience in the product of helmets, HJC products constantly set new standards in aerodynamics.
IN-MOLD means fusing an EPS liner with a tough polycarbonate outer shell. This makes for a clean finish and a stronger structure, which results in increased safety and stiffness.
The skeletal frame of the helmet is embedded within the EPS core to bind the structure of the helmet together while at possible impact. Yet, it not only holds the helmet together in a crash, but also provides great support.
In order to achieve maximum ventilation, all aerodynamically optimised models are based on the Bernoulli principle. In motion, the rate of surface flow in general increases towards the rear progression. Through pressure differences, cool air from the frontal intake is exhausted through the rear vent for internal heat dissipation, giving the cyclist optimum ventilation while riding.ation while riding.
ADVANCED AIR CHANNEL SYSTEM:
Air channels are built-in ventilation channels inside the helmet. Depending on the rider’s speed, a certain amount of cold air will travel inside the helmet by the frontal intake vent and through the inner air passage and out to exhaust vent. Optimal air circulation helps to keep the head cool while riding.
X-STATIC is produced by permanently fusing 99.9% of metallic silver with fabric. Just silver, no nanotechnology or a complex, chemical formula. The permanent performance of X-STATIC keeps apparel smelling fresh for longer, even after multiple wear cycles between washings.
