Premier Helmets Releases Dragon Titanium Model

Rich sport bike riders have a new expensive helmet to spend their money on. The 2009 Collection of Race Series section got a new entry with the arrival of the Dragon Titanium helmet.

Weighing about 1,100 grams and based on Titanium technology, the helmet features two shell sizes, TVA Titanium-Vechtram-Aramidic construction and epoxy resin. As for the ventilation, the Italian manufacturer used a Dynamic system with 2 air flows and 4 extractors.

The interior is removable and washable, with a perspirant neck roll and sanitized to avoid allergies. The innards are also lined with Shalimar, a hydrophilic treated special microfiber fabric to absorb moisture, as related by

The visor was not neglected as it uses a QRS Quick-Release-System and was treated to prevent inner clouding. The helmet has a double ring chin strap and is available in 5 sizes, from XS to XL. Prices for this helmet were not announced yet, but rumors say it might be somewhere around 600 euros ($830).

Born in 1956 in Westminster, California, the Premier brand and its production department have been moved in Italy in 1987. The company produces helmets for racing and city, off road and enduro.

Any Premier helmet features various materials, such as carbon, dyneema, titanium, vechtram, epoxidic resins for the moulding of the external shell; Lexan OQ from General Electric for the moulding of visors and other components; anallergic and technical fabrics for the internal parts. The painting cycle put together automatic steps (as the application of the base colour on the shell) and hand made procedures (like the decals application).

From the SuperSport riders that wear a Premier helmet, we can mention Pitt Andrew (Team Hannspree ten kate Honda), Pirro Michele (Team Yamaha Lorenzini By Leoni), Roccoli Massimo (Team Intermoto Czech) and Nannelli Gianluca (Team Parkingo Triumph Be1).
