Louis Garneau Vorttice and X-Lite helmets

Louis Garneau adds the Vorttice and X-Lite to its range of helmets

Louis Garneau have launched its ‘most aerodynamic helmet yet’ – the Vorttice.

The Vorttice features dimpled technology at the front of the helmet, causing air to flow closely to the surface.

When hitting the ‘Vortex Generator’ at the top of the helmet, the air is accelerated to the end of the helmet to help eliminate air disturbances, according to the manufacturer.

Louis Garneau’s unique air intake system situated at the highest pressure point on the helmet directs air along three ‘evacuation channels’, keeping the rider cool and directing the flow of air through and out the helmet.

Meanwhile, Louis Garneau claim their second new release, the X-Lite, is the lightest helmet on the market. 

The X-Lite features patent-pending U-Bar technology – U-shaped ribs that are folded six times to create a complex exoskeleton to reinforce the helmet’s structure.
