This is X-lite’s exclusive high-carbon
content version of the new flip-up
helmet. It maintains and enriches
the much-appreciated technical
characteristics of its predecessor, the
X-1003 ULTRA CARBON.
Its reduced weight and compact
volume (thanks to the carbon-rich
construction and the availability
of three outer shell sizes), double
P/J homologation, VPS sunscreen,
efficient TVS Touring Ventilation
System, exclusive Dual Action chin
guard opening mechanism, Microlock2
double-lever retention system
with micrometric adjustment, and
Carbon Fitting Racing Experience
inner comfort padding (with an
innovative net construction) make
the X-1004 ULTRA CARBON the most
exclusive flip-up helmet for the most
demanding of motorbike tourists.
The helmet can be used either with the chin guard open (J configuration) or closed (P configuration), as the protective chin guard has passed the homologation tests required by UN/ECE regulations for full-face helmets.
PINLOCK® FOG-RESISTANT INNER VISOR Supplied and with silicone-sealed profile (FSB – Full Silicone Border).
Thanks to the exclusive patented adjusting system adopted by the Nolangroup, the stretch of the Pinlock® inner visor can be adjusted, operating from the outside of the visor and making removal of the inner visor unnecessary.
Device allowing the visor lock (to prevent accidental visor opening at high speeds) or visor demisting at low speeds or stops (by a minimum visor opening).
VPS SUNSCREEN WITH
UV 400 PROTECTIONPositioned on the inside of the helmet, it is moulded out of LEXANTM* and is S/R (Scratch Resistant) and F/R (Fog Resistant) treated, with UV protection up to 400 nanometres. It is easy to remove when it is not needed, or for normal maintenance and cleaning operations.
TVS (TOURING VENTILATION SYSTEM)
The system is made up of:
- an upper air intakethis provides both direct ventilation to the front of the helmet (even at low speeds and independent to the position of the VPS) and diffused ventilation to the upper-head area, in combination with the innovative net featuring the liner;
- a chin guard air intakethis allows ventilation at mouth level and directs air straight to the visor, limiting fogging;
- a rear extractorintegrated into a rear spoiler, it allows for the expulsion of hot, stale air.
DUAL ACTION (patented)
Exclusive (patented) DUAL ACTION chin guard opening system. Positioned in the centre of the chin guard, it allows for easy, one-handed opening. The dual action opening mechanism reduces the risk of accidental opening: the chin guard can be opened only operating the first release lever (or safety lock) and then activating the second lever.
Compared to its predecessor (the X-1003 model), the X-1004 has improved wearability in the chin area: the chin guard has been slightly elongated, to offer increased ease of wear and, consequently, the highest possible levels of static and dynamic comfort. At the same time, the design of the product has been preserved, remaining compact even with the chin guard open.
Double lever retention system with micrometric adjustment. This system consists of a thermoplastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever. The toothed lever releases the micrometric strip, thus the chin strap can only be open with a very broad rotation of the opening lever. This device minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening of the retention system.
“CARBON FITTING RACING EXPERIENCE” INNER COMFORT PADDINGIt is made with active carbon filaments
LINER WITH INNOVATIVE NET CONSTRUCTION
this assists the movement of air around the upper part of the head, which thus stays cool and dry.
SINGLE-BLOCK CHEEK PADSThese ensure even pressure on the face which is constant over time.
INTEGRATED CHIN STRAPS
Removable and washable, they are integrated in the cheek pats, favouring the helmet’s fit, as well as its wearability.
Exclusive system designed for the comfort of eyeglass wearers. In a quick and easy way, it allows to obtain a space in the cheek pads for the glasses temples. It is reversible, so the cheek pads can be returned to the initial configuration.
Removable and washable, it is characterised by a high-performance water-resistant zip. It can be removed for increased ride comfort in warmer periods of the year and/or for short trips.
