ROUX Helmets has debuted a new helmet line, designed in collaboration with Pininfarina of America, at this year's Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show. The two revolutionary, cutting-edge, racing helmet designs push both aesthetic and technological boundaries, bringing functionality and visual intrigue to meet the evolving needs of today's race-car driver.
"Pininfarina has a long and successful history in the automotive design sector, which is why the partnership with Roux came naturally to us," commented Paolo Trevisan, Head of Design for Pininfarina. "The resulting helmet line exemplifies how both companies are committed to designing revolutionary products and working to transform the industry."
Intended for open cockpit cars-from Formula Four to Formula One-this helmet design is strategically crafted for aerodynamic efficiency and safety, which demand the highest standards. Complete with removable aerodynamic spoilers, this model simultaneously prioritizes technological innovation and aesthetics.
Built for closed-cockpit racing, the GT helmet design offers an alternative solution optimized for the car's extreme heat conditions. This helmet is highly functional in design, increasing airflow and lowering temperature via a built-in air-port and a COOL-X integrated water-cooling system. In addition, a larger eyeport allows a broader field of view. Other notable features include an integrated water drink tube with quick disconnect and complete radio gear with noise-canceling microphone & speaker pods.
