The carbon fibre shell and the EPS internal components were optimised using FEM techniques (Finite Elements Analysis) to obtain an extremely high performance helmet in terms of size, light weight and protection. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1310 g (refers to XS size in the ECE 2205 version).
The entire ventilation system was designed using computational fluid dynamic modelling and wind tunnel tests. This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider's head. Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Pista GP boasts first class performance in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor aperture is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor.
The fit of the Pista GP was developed using “Human Engineering” whereby the design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer's head. The inside of the helmet starts with a concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped to match the contours of the rider's head and any surfaces in contact with the head are stitch-free. The Lycra® and Shalimar® sanitized internal components are fully adjustable due to the fact that the position and depth of the crown pad can be modified as can the thickness of the cheek pads. The combination of these solutions, which are covered by three separate patents, make the Pista GP fit the different cranial shapes as never before.

Breathable, micro-perforated Lycra® crown pad with concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped in a single piece moulded around the contours of the rider’s head thanks to Rabbit System
3D Shalimar® cheek pads with multi-density foam. Inner liners covered by three patents. Possibility to customize cheek pads fit with the removable foam inserts.
Ventilation system designed and optimised in a wind tunnel, comprising 4 front vents (3 at the front and one on the chin guard) and 2 rear extractors
IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) ventilation with large air ducts hollowed into the shell and vents which direct air to the rider’s head
Air intakes with protective metal frames and mesh are in the “always open” position. Racing plugs are available for bad weather
Large rear spoiler optimised in a wind tunnel to maximise aerodynamic performance and ventilation, even at high speed. Spoiler designed to detach from the helmet in the event of an accident to increase passive safety

Extreme Standards Features
Field of vision
The aerodynamics are optimised by means of specific virtual simulation software.
The aerodynamics was tested in a wind tunnel.
The form and materials used were designed and optimised using specific FEM software designed to simulate structural behavior on impact.
The visor is in optical class 1, meaning the very best optical quality.
The visor is 3.3 mm thick thus providing excellent protection in the event of an accident.
The visor is fitted with a patented swivel mechanism which provides a perfect seal with the shell of the helmet.
The visor comes with a patented dual purpose locking system which reduces the risk of accidental opening in the event of an accident.
A separate kit includes a racing version visor with additional screws which further reduce the risk of accidental opening in the event of an accident.
The internal components can be customised to match the shape of the rider’s head.
The internal shape of the helmet was specifically designed to decrease the risk damage to the collar bones in the event of a fall.
The shape of the helmet was designed to blend aerodynamically with the race hump on the rider's racing suit.
The visor is fitted with a patented micro-opening system.
