Alpinestars releases the game-changing S-R10 Helmet, revolutionizing motorcycle helmet protection and redefining safety and performance.
The Alpinestars S-R10 Helmet, a culmination of over a decade of research, development, and rigorous testing, including inputs from MotoGP riders Jack Miller and Jorge Martin, represents the pinnacle of Alpinestar’s helmet technology. Available in six sizes (XS-XXL), the S-R10 targets the core needs of racers and riding enthusiasts by delivering unparalleled helmet safety, comfort, and performance.
The helmet’s cutting-edge aerodynamics, tested through extensive wind tunnel sessions, significantly reduce drag and ensure stable aerodynamics. This enhances performance on the track and provides comfort on long rides. Homologated to the highest standards (ECE 22.06, DOT, FIM), the S-R10’s shell blends high-density carbon, uni-directional carbon composite, aramid fiber, and fiberglass. This unique composition effectively dissipates impact energy, offering robust penetration protection and ensuring a lightweight build.
The S-R10 boasts a multi-density EPS liner with six specific densities, offering impeccable energy absorption and a snug fit. This sophisticated inner shell, available in four sizes, significantly enhances impact protection. A low-friction surface inside the EPS liner and a special coating reduces force transmission to the rider’s head in various scenarios, including rotational and oblique impacts.
The patented A-Head Fitment System allows riders to adjust the helmet’s height and angle, ensuring a perfect fit. Additionally, interchangeable cheek, crown, and top pads offer further customization.
Eleven ventilation points, including seven intakes and four exhausts, ensure optimal airflow. The sophisticated ventilation system, integrated with the shell, circulates air effectively for superior rider comfort.
The S-R10 helmet provides an expansive field of view with 220 degrees of lateral and 57 degrees of vertical vision. The shield mechanism features a quick-release system, anti-scratch and anti-fog treatment, and compatibility with Pinlock® and tear-offs.
The removable and washable lining features anti-microbial treatments, ensuring hygiene and comfort. The crown pad, cheek pads, chin curtain, and other components are designed for maximum comfort and safety.
The chin bar’s profile is designed to minimize collarbone injuries. The helmet’s weight of approximately 1,540 grams for size medium ensures a favorable performance-to-protection ratio.
The Alpinestars S-R10 Helmet is available at authorized dealers, distributors, and online and ships with a clear and dark smoke visor, tear-off set, Pinlock lens, chin curtain, and wind and breath deflectors. Priced at $999.00 for solid colors and $1199.00 for graphics, the S-R10 helmet represents Alpinestars’ commitment to advancing safety in motorcycle performance gear.
