The new HJC FS-15 Air helmet...
The new HJC FS-15 Air helmet in "Snarl" graphic.
New for 2010 is the Air version of the FS-15. Its built-in Air Pump system
allows the rider to adjust the fit of the cheekpads for enhanced comfort. An
example of HJC's world-leading R&D, the FS-15 was designed from the ground
up with the help of HJC's state-of-the-art wind tunnel and CAD/CAM
equipment. Our precise 3-D modeling provides the basis for exceptional fit,
lighter weight and clean aerodynamics. It also allows us to incorporate our
Advanced Channeling Ventilation system in the earliest generations of the
new helmet design process.
The final test of any HJC helmet design is under “real-world” conditions. In
the case of the FS-15, Ben Spies began wearing an early version of the FS-15
in AMA competition in 2008 and gave our engineers development feedback
throughout the 2008 AMA season. Ben continued to wear the FS-15 in his
successful run for the World Superbike championship in 2009.

HJC utilizes industry-leading CAD 3D modeling programs to design helmets
that are lightweight, aerodynamic and extremely comfortable. HJC R&D
specialists utilize a state-of-the-art continuous single return atmospheric
wind tunnel to fine-tune the aerodynamics of every helmet they make. Designs
are constantly being evaluated to reduce noise and turbulence while
enhancing airflow through the vents and improving overall comfort. Every HJC
helmet model is subjected to some of the toughest, most intensive scientific
impact testing in the industry. Our helmets are tested in a wide variety of
impacts, under extreme temperature conditions from -4º to +122º F, to ensure
optimum performance in any riding scenario.
HJC is the #1 helmet company in the world and is distributed in the US
market by Sullivans, Helmet House and Castle Sales. HJC¹s US marketing,
service and design center is located in Cerritos, CA.
