The Avio is a balance of aerodynamics, ventilation, weight, and comfort while maintaining the strict testing requirements involved with certification. Numerous design iterations were necessary to balance these attributes into a single helmet. The opti-dock system is designed with flexible rubber fins that securely store frames without temples contacting your head or obstructing airflow. Through CFD testing, we were able to refine the geometry to minimize drag and reduce wake to create a fast aerodynamic shape. Large front vents aligned with small rear exhaust ports create a low-pressure zone at the rear of the helmet. This low pressure pulls air through the helmet keeping the riders head cool. We’re able to design the front vents as large as possible due to the in-molded bridge angled to rider position. The result is the most lightweight, aerodynamic, ventilated helmet Bollé has ever designed.
