Those attending the Sea Otter Classic this year will get a first look at the latest designs from Limar Helmets. 

The company is releasing three bike helmets, which will be on display at the 2023 Sea Otter Classic in Monterrey, Calif. this week. If you’re attending this year’s event, you can find Limar at booth B97. 

If not, you’ll just have to read about them here. With each helmet aimed at different kinds of riding (enduro, trails and racing), there’s likely something here you can use. 

The Tonale MIPS.

The Tonale MIPS is ideal for the enduro rider, Limar said, with an “Air-Node MIPS design” and extended coverage. Weighing 310 grams for the medium size (claimed), the Tonale’s adjustment system fully wraps around the occipital area and offers five levels of height movement.

It’s got large vents throughout, including two on the front, five on the rear, and eight on the top. With a compact design and a large visor, it’s meant to keep riders cool and safe during “long days out on the trail,” Limar said.

The Tonale is also available in large (which weighs a claimed 360 grams) and comes in five colorways: Matte Black, Matte Dove Gray, Matte Deep Green, Matte Amaranth, and Matte Dark Blue.

It will set you back $180 MSRP.

This is the “trail rider’s dream helmet,” Limar said of the Pora MIPS. (So if you dream about helmets, this is evidently made just for you.)

With the Pora’s 22 air vents, you can probably expect a cool noggin with this one. The helmet’s large visor aims for protection from “branches, debris, and when the sun is low on the horizon,” Limar said. It also comes with a height adjustment system.

Weighing in at a claimed 260 grams (medium size) or 285 grams (large size), the Pora comes in four colorways: Matte Black Titanium, Matte Sand Green, Matte Dark Red, and Matte Blue Purple.

The MSRP clocks in at $135.

Racers need to save every watt possible, and the Air Atlas MIPS saves 1.4 watts compared to Limar’s Air Speed model, the company said.

It’s also quite comfy, Limar said, including not only the Air Fit Evo adjustment system of the above helmets, but also a magnetic chin buckle and integrated pad system. Weighing a claimed 220 grams in the small size, the Air Atlas wants to keep up with the fastest riders. (That’s 235 grams and 260 grams for the medium and large sizes, respectively.)

With 17 vents and 6 inner-air flow channels, riders can also count on keeping their cranium well-ventilated. Colorways include Iridescent Matte Black, Iridescent White, Matte Gray, Matte Amaranth, Matte Black Titanium, Matte Blue, Above the Clouds, and Pink Blue.

The Air Atlas costs $320 MSRP.

Why say lidar all through the text when the helmets say limar?
