German adventure motorcycle accessories company Touratech has announced a new adventure helmet which can quickly convert into a road helmet without the need for any tools.
The Touratech Aventuro Rambler is available in Australia now for $1090 in seven sizes from XS to 3XL.
Like its previous helmets, I suspect this is made for the company by fellow countryman Schuberth helmets who make high-quality models that score well on independent safety tests such as the British SHARP helmet safety scheme ratings.
The most interesting and cleverst feature of the ECE 2205 and DOT approved Touratech Aventuro Rambler is its ability to be used on-road and off-road.
It can be transformed from a hybrid adventure helmet with peak and visor into an airy cross helmet with peak and goggles or a streamlined road helmet with little effort, all without the aid of any tools.
The Rambler also has the vital safety feature of red emergency pull tabs that release the cheek pads in the event of a crash so the rider doesn’t sustain neck injury when removing the helmet.
Aussie riders should find it comfortable in the summer heat thanks to the adjustable four-vent system and replaceable and washable COOLMAX inner padding.
You can wear it with the visor attached or with goggles which are not included. However, there is an integrated goggle strap guide to keep them in place.
The helmet comes in three outer shell sizes and it’s not super-light.
It weighs 1600g for the XS-S in on-road setting and 1750g in off-road mode.
The middle outer shell (sizes M-L) weighs 1625g on-road and 1775 off-road, while the large outer shell (XL-3XL) is 1650g and a whopping 1800g.
