Akuma Motorcycle Helmets by Helmet Industry

Akuma is a relatively small and new company comparing to the rest that have been in the game for decades. Where Akuma lacks in experience, they compromise by offering one of the most technological equipped helmets out there. Their trademark feature, the patented IPS (Integrated Power System) system comes in almost every helmet that they offer.

The IPS is basically a configuration of the way Akuma was able to put a charging system in the helmet in such a way where it does not compromise safety. With the charging system in place where safety is not affected, Akuma was then able to put a LED light on the front and rear of the helmet to provide lighting for the rider at night. This bright LED lighting can for example help the rider read a map while on the side of the road at night without removing the helmet and getting an external flashlight. In addition to the bright white LED at the front of the helmet, at the rear,located in the each exhaust ventilation of the helmet is two infrared LED. This Infrared lighting is a bonus because it enhances the visibility of the rider by allowing car drivers on the road from behind the rider to see the rider much better.

In addition to their IPS integrated helmet, Akuma also offer some of the lightest carbon fiber helmets. The Phantom II MFR from Akuma weights only three pound, yet it meets and exceed DOT and ECE safety standard. Some of the more expensive fully carbon fiber helmet can weigh up to four pounds. One pound difference might not seem a lot but once the long hour of riding is factor in, one pound can be one too many because the neck muscle supporting the helmet will be worn out.

Even though Akuma offer helmets that are lightweight such as the Phantom II MFR fully carbon fiber and technologically advance helmet like the V-1 Ghostrider and V-2 Stealth that have integrated lighting system. However, those are only the tip of the ice berg for Akuma, what makes Akuma helmet truly astonishing, truly unique that makes them truly stand out from the rest of the group is the SOLFX Photochromatic visor. The SOLFX Photchromatic visor is the first visor by a helmet company ever to incorporate this new composite material. As a result, the SOLFX Photochromatic visor is patented by Akuma. The SOLFX Photochromatic material used by Akuma is nothing new and has been use in other application most notably in the transition glasses that many have seen but not really paid much attention to. The transition glasses turn dark once UV light touches the lens. This is usefully during bright days as too much UV light can damage the eye. Akuma takes the transition glasses that normal people wear and incorporate that feature on the visor of a helmet, as a result of that, the SOLFX Photochromatic visor sprung to live. This visor like the transition glasses transit to a darker shade as UV light hit the visor during a bright day. This will help the visibility of the rider, letting him or her see further down the road and making critical decision when needed without hampering the judgment of the rider due to the sun hitting the eye. This visor is truly one of a kind and is what make Akuma one of the best.
