Touratech Aventuro Traveller: New Lightweight Flip-Up ADV Helmet

 A new lightweight modular ADV helmet with more airflow and a quiet design.

Published on 11.20.2019

Touratech is launching an all-new modular adventure helmet, the Aventuro Traveller, which replaces the outgoing Aventuro Mod in their lineup. The new Aventuro Traveller features a flip-up design with huge airflow, yet Touratech says it is designed to remain quiet on the highway. It offers the communication convenience that only a modular helmet can provide, while still being lightweight for all-day comfort.

A helmet’s job is to keep you protected. A side effect of this protection is often excessive heat for the rider. The Aventuro Traveller solves this problem with a peak design that directs airflow into the oversized vent on the forehead, which distributes air through the liner keeping the rider’s head cool. In fact, Touratech claims the flow is so great that the helmet liner comes with a ‘low-flow’ flap that can be closed to reduce airflow for riding in cooler weather. Further airflow cools the rider’s face by entering through the large chin vent. The glove-friendly vents are easy to open and close while riding.

Touratech Aventuro Traveller carbon fiber version

The Aventuro Traveller is lighter than its predecessor, the Aventuro Mod, and most other modular helmets on the market. The carbon version is a half-pound lighter than the previous model and the multi-fiber version is a third-of-a-pound lighter. The benefit is reduced neck strain and improved rider comfort for long days in the saddle.

“We expect this helmet to hit the sweet spot for many travelers and adventure riders because it has the flip-up feature we love for interacting with people at the gas station or communicating with our riding buddies, but it’s lightweight and has lots of airflow like a good off-road helmet should. It’s the best of both worlds.” — Paul Guillien, CEO, Touratech-USA

An innovative double seal on the shield and chin bar closure keeps rain and dust out while reducing sound levels for a comfortable ride. A large opening provides better peripheral vision and accommodates goggles & glasses. It also features an integrated sun visor that quickly flips down with a glove friendly control to reduce glare while riding.

The shield is easy to open with either hand using grip tabs located on both sides and it stays open in 4 positions with strong detents and comes with a Pinlock© insert to prevent fogging. The ‘no-grab’ peak design cuts through the wind minimizing neck strain and includes an optional extension with two length settings.

A gravity-defying chin bar stays in the up position without surprise closings like other modular helmets. A quick-ratchet buckle with stainless steel mechanism provides quick closure of the chinstrap and reliable performance for years.

The helmet, manufactured by Nexx, is set up to accommodate most communication systems including SENA, Scala Rider and more. Cavities for speakers and microphone and easy routing paths for wires make communication installation a snap.

Price & Styles

The Aventuro Traveller is available in 3 graphics styles for the carbon fiber version which retails for $749, and 2 solid colors for the Multi-fiber version which retails for $649. Sizes range from XS to 3XL. They are available for pre-order now and will be in the USA in early 2020. The Aventuro Traveller will be on display at Touratech’s booth during the Long Beach IMS show November 22nd to the 24th. For more information go to touratech-usa.com
