SMK helmets are designed and developed in Europe by the best, expert designers, before being produced by Studds, a company based in Delhi, India that produces almost four million helmets annually, destined for markets across the world.
The external shell is moulded in EIRT (Energy Impact Resistant Thermoplastic), a thermoplastic resin that is particularly resistant to impact. The Glide has an aerodynamic shape that ensures silence inside the helmet.
The internal shell is moulded in differentiated density EPS, for better absorption of the energy resulting from an impact.
To lift the chin piece, simply press the button on the inside of the chin piece itself. To close it, just push downwards until it locks to the strong metal fastening system. Once open, the chin piece can be locked using the red lever, positioned on the right of the shell.
The ventilation system has been designed to allow for the constant intake of fresh air through the two adjustable air vents, one positioned on the chin and another on the upper part of the shell. Hot air can exit through the rear extractor.
SMK Glide modular helmet boasts double P/J homologation (ECE), as both a full-face and flip-up helmet making it one of the safest modular helmets in this price range.
The visor mechanism is simple and functional, and does not require the use of tools to remove or fix the external visor. To unlock it, once lifted, just pull the red lever forward. This results in an initial click that allows the visor to remain slightly open, optimising the anti-fog effect even at low speed. The scratch resistant visor is suitable for use with Pinlock® Original.
SMK Glide has Extra Wide Vision that offers a much wider visual field than is standard. The practical internal sun shield is easily activated with a switch positioned on the lower left of the helmet.
The inner linings are breathable and hypoallergenic, fully removable and washable, and ensure maximum comfort even after prolonged use.
The retention system is equipped with a practical quick release buckle for micrometric adjustment. The convenient wind stop and removable nose guard complete the features of this helmet, which is also suitable for use with Bluetooth intercommunication systems
If you are looking for a modular helmet that is as good as many full face helmets, SMK Glide modular helmet is the one to buy.
