ITALIAN FIRM, Carberg may have been around since 1974 but their helmet range is now bang up to date as the company release the Drift Evo. Replacing the Drift, The Evo is a sporty-styled, track and road riding helmet, that’s bristling with top-spec tech.

The shell is a composite construction, with the Drift Evo Carbon being made of Carbon fibre carbon. There are two shell sizes, small – covering XS,S,M, and large – covering L,XL,XXL with ten colour options, from plain black and white, to funky matt finished, clear coated ones.

The lid features an internal drop-down sun-visor, which is removable for track riding. There is also the option to order dark visors which are compatible with tear-off strips, further adding to the lids track oriented ability.

The rear spoiler gives a sporty and aggressive look to the helmet and is claimed to enhance the aerodynamics at higher speed and reduces the turbulence. 

 

The removable inner lining and cheek pads have been redesigned to offer a closer fit than the outgoing helmet. It is also possible to change and install a different size to get a custom-correct fit. 

The DRIFT EVO features a quick release visor mechanism that allows visor adjustment to guarantee a close-fitting visor. The mechanism utilises a spring double movement, a system that Carberg claim prevents the ingress of any water or air. The lever on the left side of the visor mechanism allows you to hold the visor open 5mm to avoid fogging and when the lever is lifted, the visor is locked to avoid opening during a fall. 

DRIFT EVO is also equipped with a transparent anti-scratch visor, an adjustable Pinlock lens Max Vision to avoid fogging, and an integrated anti-scratch sunshade visor DVT (Double Visor Tech).

The lower vent on the chin guard drives air directly to the inner side of the visor to avoid misting; the vent on top channels fresh air inside the helmet through numerous air grooves, while the rear vent favours the discharge of hot and stale air. 

The DRIFT EVO is offered in new solid colors Matt Black, White and also new graphic versions INTEGRA and GAMA with composite fibre shell, as well as the SPEEDSTER version. It’s available also the CARBON version with a shell entirely in carbon fibre that weighs less than 100 gr. compared to the composite fibre version. There are 3 color combinations for the SPEEDSTER graphic version, 2 for INTEGRA and CARBON, and 1 for GAMA. All the versions are equipped with removable and washable lining including the padding on the chinstrap; double D-ring for the retention system and ready to install most of the communication systems present on the market thanks to the space dedicated to speakers and microphone.
