The Italian Brand launches its first full-face carbon helmet: the 40.5 X-Carbon
2017 marks the introduction of Carbon into the GIVI helmet range. It is this top quality material that is present in the shell of the new 40.5 full-face helmet, which also hits the market in a Fiber version. The new helmet has top-of-the-range features and has been specifically developed for sport-touring use. A highly anticipated advance that once again evidences the Brand's capacity to adapt to the needs of the most demanding of motorcyclists.
The new 40.5, with shells produced in carbon fiber and composite fiber, becomes the crown jewel within the range of GIVI helmets. A pure and sturdy full-face helmet, with an aerodynamic and impeccable design that is not only attention-grabbing for the owners of sport and naked motorcycles, but also to those riders who favour sport-touring. The material used in its shell (carbon fiber/composite fiber), weighs 1210/1250 gm - 1310/1350 gm and the graphics are distinctive to either the X-Carbon or the X-Fiber.
The remainder of the top-of-the-range technical features are virtually the same for both the X-Carbon and the X-Fiber, from the two available shell sizes to optimize the adjustment in the range of sizes (from XS to XXL), to the high performance ventilation system, which uses an internal canalization in the internal EPS. The 40.5 also incorporates two rear extractors and the result is excellent airflow inside the helmet; something that has been mentioned as a bonus by all those riders who have tested the 40.5.
The inner liner is anti-allergenic, removable and washable and has been constructed with great attention to detail, reaching high levels of comfort thanks to the micro-perforations in its padding.
Apart from its new design and quality features, the new Italian full-face helmet includes some additional elements as standard, such as a sun visor, D-ring fastening in the X-Carbon version, chin guard vents, a removable nose guard, a wind deflector and an anti-scratch quick-release visor that can accommodate a Pinlock lens.
The daring style GIVI designers have given the 40.5 is not only demonstrated in its sporty lines, but also in the range of colours used. Modern graphics with light fluorescent touches on the X-Carbon and bold, decisive colours on the X-Fiber, with an exciting mix of bright and matt lines resulting in an attractive, attention-grabbing helmet.
The 40.5 X-Carbon, in “matt red” and “neon yellow” versions is sold at a retail price of £385.90, whilst the X-Fiber, available in a wider range of colour options; “neon yellow with black graphics”, “matt titanium and neon yellow”, “white and red” and “matt black and white”, retails at a price of £249.90. Both the X-Carbon and X-Fiber are available in sizes ranging from XS to XXL.
