Brembo Helmets

In its 50 years of existence (celebrated this year), Brembo has secured a prestigious place for itself in the automotive braking system sector. Not only for automobiles, including Formula One race cars, but also since 1972 for motorcycles. But what is the relation between brakes and helmets. Apparently none, except that the Brembo Group is a huge company with many brands including one called Sabelt manufacturing seat belts providing an interesting technology to these 2 new Brembo B-Tech (chin covered) and B-Jet (open-chinned) helmets: the Automatic Fit Strap

The idea behind this strap is that many riders put on and take off their helmets many times a day for very short trips, often failing to fasten them correctly or even leaving them unfastened. Brembo helmets have a continuous strap that ends in a winding device. Just press a single button (on the helmet side) and the strap adhere perfectly to the chinkiest which blocks automatically in the correct position and tension, making it skin friendly.

In addition to an interesting design 100% in pure Italian style, the Brembo B-Tech helmet is currently the urban full-face helmet with the broadest visual angle because of the special extra space visor. And with a larger area of the surface cut away the claustrophobic feeling that bikers often experience with a normal full-face model is much reduced. Brembo Helmets.

    They look like Fighter pilot helmets

    WOW, just not sure if the wow is because I like or don’t like both or either! After 2nd look I’m sure I don’t like the red 3/4 style helmet the other will need more looks at it, but the strap system sounds very interesting.

    Tinted would be hot.

    I think they look sharp and comfortable. Key word is LOOK! You have to try a Helmet on and play around with it on your head, like making it real tight and pushing it down on your head. I think that if there are more Helmet Company’s making and designing a better and better Helmet. You never know, one of these Helmetless, rider just might turn around and want to protect his family from nursing a brain dead, fully dependent Ex-Rider.

    I like them very European. Very much like the momo and roof helmets in style

    One thought comes to my mind when I see the styling of the helmet…

    GO SPEED RACER GO!!!

    They are 299 and 349 Euros, respectively. That’s about $400 and $465 for Italian style. The chin strap is like your seat belt as it has a spring loaded winder. Interesting, but if they are going to charge a premium then the helmet had better have the technology to keep the scull from cracking. Look to racing for the highest tech, safest helmets (ex: Shoei, Arai).

    Looks (to me) like something a steelworker would wear when grinding

    @bigalyts- “You never know, one of these Helmetless, rider just might turn around and want to protect his family from nursing a brain dead, fully dependent Ex-Rider.”

    I’ve been riding since 1969 and have never even heard of such a case. It’s more nonsense from the insurance companies. A lot of people die in the bathtub. Perhaps you should start wearing a scuba helmet to bathe instead of putting your family at such great risk.

    To bigylist and bla bla bla
    No helmet will protect you from a broken neck when the impact to your knoggin is to a solid object above 35 MPH. Just check the DOT certification requirement .

    @ bla bla bla_ I hear tell that many People die in the Bathtub, so I take a shower. If you haven’t heard of any Quadraplegics from a head injury, because they were not wearing a Helmet, then call the Trauma Unit @ Broward General Hospital and they will educate you on the extent of Head injuries from Motorcycle accidents, due to not wearing a real Helmet, and not a Skid Lid..

    I am definetly into Wearing A quality helmet for safety and comfort, especially at 80 + mph. These Helmets do kind of make me Laugh! They look like they were designed for the High Line, Italian SCOOTER Crowd. Ie; Vespa and Piaggio, and as soon as the Kuryake gets to see these Skids their Chinese Partners will be pairing them up for their “tachinkos and Shitos” scooter.

    I hit the highway head first with my HD carbon fibre 3/4 helmet and can still talk about it. Helmet had mere scrapes and scratches. I love these helmets and the chin strap system makes a lot of sense.

    Hey guys. Do you know how many helmets fly off before you hit the ground. The autonatic strap is an excellent idea.

    I always wondered how a bike helmet compared to an NFL helmet. I have both, the bike helmet & an authentic NFL helmet & I’d take the NFL helmet.

    Just seems like much better padding & more durable.

    Brembo helmets are some of the best!

    Too much money for a scooter helmet in my opinion.

    Brett: football helmets are made for human to human contact, max speed around 18 mph. Bike helmets are supposedly made for much worse. We’ve all seen football helmets fly off during a game at those low speeds. Think I’ll stick with my full-face HJC for riding.
