Italian helmet specialists, Limar, more well known in the road cycling world as Astana team sponsors, have sent their product line into the dirty world of MTB with their all new Delta enduro helmet.
Limar Delta e-MTB & Enduro Helmet
The Limar Delta looks to be a well ventilated half-lid helmet, with no fewer than 17 vents and 2 ventilation channels. It offers head protection in the form of a triple shell PC/EPS mould. For the €124.95 price tag, I might have expected integration of oblique impact protection technology, such as MIPS or the like, but LIMAR have just stuck with direct impact protection technology.
That said, the helmet looks well-shaped, covering the back of the head as well as the temple regions – more than can be said for a lot of other MTB lids, and it complies with nta 8776, the world’s first safety standard specifically for e-bike riding.
The helmet pads have received an antibacterial treatment but are removable and washable when needed. The retention system is adjustable in both the horizontal and vertical directions and is integrated with webbing to provide a good fit all around your head. The visor peak is pretty large and is adjustable to sit in three different positions. With 17 vents, there is no wonder this enduro helmet weighs in at just 310g (size medium).
Pricing & Availability
Available in just two sizes, medium and large, the Limar Delta enduro helmet fits head circumferences of 53-62 cm. It is available in 5 colorways; and will set you back €124.95 (~$140).
