The new Caberg Drift is built from a carbon, Kevlar and fibreglass composite (there’s also a full carbon version) and aside from a fancy construction it also comes with a few nifty features for it’s price. Like for instance, an integrated internal sun visor with DVT, that’s Double Visor Tech rather than a painful long-haul flight leg condition.
Quick release visor…
The Drift also has a quick release visor for snappy visor changes and the sprung mechanism and lever on the left side of the visor can lock the visor at half a centimetre from the window beading to reduce condensation. When the lever is lifted, the visor is locked to avoid sudden opening whilst you’re riding.
Caberg have gone overboard to prevent steamy windows, the helmet also features a transparent anti-scratch visor, an adjustable Pinlock to further avoid fogging, and an integrated anti-scratch sunshade visor – which can be operated easily with a lever. Ventilation is guaranteed by three wide air vents; the lower vent on the chin guard drives air directly to the inner side of the visor to avoid misting. The top vent channels fresh air into the helmet through numerous air grooves, and the rear vent gets rid of the hot air.
Nobody likes a smelly lid, thankfully like most decent helmets the lining on this one is entirely removable and washable (including the chin strap padding) and is made with hypoallergenic and breathable fabrics to ensure maximum freshness.
