Kabuto; head gear worn by ancient Japanese warriors. Since 1982, Kabuto Helmets have continued the legacy, using cutting-edge technology to protect motorcyclists. In 1992 the RS-1R was the world’s first helmet with upper ventilation. 2006 saw Kabuto’s first victory on the world stage, at the Suzuka 8 Hour, with FCC-Honda. And, in 2008, the FF-5 was the first helmet to use wake-stabiliser technology. Today, partnered with Tokyo University Kabuto use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to push the outer edge of what’s possible, with wind tunnel testing to prove high-speed aerodynamics and stability.
Take a closer look at Kabuto Helmets, and find out what makes them so special.
Advanced, lightweight composite shell technology. Patented wake-stabiliser aerodynamic system. Ventilation that cools. MOFF odour-elimination fabric interior. Quick visor switch. This is Kabuto.
Lightweight and beautifully finished, the aerodynamic Aeroblade-5 features full ventilation, removable inner liner and PinLock? ready visor. Available in sizes XS-XXL.
The Avand II is perfect for the ride to work – or the long-distance tour. It features a removable interior, and wake stabiliser system to reduce buffeting. Available in sizes XS-XL.
The world’s first aerodynamic flip-up full-face helmet, with Pinlock? 100% Max Vision visor, inner sun-shade and comfortable, high-tech interior. Available in sizes XS-XL.
Riding in any conditions is always a test – of you and your motorcycle. So you demand only the best. Which is why Kabuto created the Aeroblade-5.
When things get hot, really hot, the Aeroblade-5’s full ventilation keeps air flowing, and you cool.
The slim frontal area smoothly feeds airflow around the shell to the wake-stabiliser, and also inducts cooling air through the integrated ventilation.
Extensive wind tunnel testing has produced wake-stabiliser technology; picking up airflow at the rear, it decreases lift and drag and improves high-speed stability.
The Aeroblade-5 has a wide visor port, designed for excellent forward, upper and peripheral vision, and features a Pinlock? ready visor.
You ride a sharp-looking Honda motorcycle. So why not wear an equally stylish helmet?
A match engineered to perfection.
