Qwart Helmets has just unveiled its new carbon fibre modular motorcycle helmet; The Phoenix. And it looks mean, doesn’t it?
If you’ve not heard of Qwart Helmets before, they’re a European company based in the South of France – who has just joined forces with Dot4Distrubution, to offer their latest lid in to British punters.
There are two versions of the Qwart Phoenix – the ‘Slick’ and the ‘Std’. All that’s different is that the ‘Slick’ comes without a visor, and is perfect for riders who prefer using goggles or sunglasses, while the ‘Std’ comes with a built in flip-up polycarbonate visor.
But, the most significant design feature of the Qwart Phoenix is its modular nature – which allows you to swap out (almost) every element of the helmet and replace it with aftermarket parts in different colours and designs – which allows riders to match their helmets to their bikes (and their gear) using little more than an Allen key and a new batch of plastics. Cool right?
The Qwart Phoenix is constructed using a grade eight carbon fibre shell, with a double density EPS impact-absorbing liner – and a carbon fibre trellis chinbar for protection. The EPS liner contains a series of hidden channels for airflow that are linked to external ports, while the chin bar also has twin vents on either side, to keep fresh air flowing, and to stop the visor misting up.
And best of all, it meets current European standards for helmet safety. For more information on the Qwart Phoenix, and to check out the full range of colours and designs, click HERE.
