Gear Scout: Touratech’s New Aventuro Mod Helmet

At this year’s AIMExpo, Touratech introduced their latest helmet, the Aventuro Mod. We have been using their original Aventuro for some time and couldn’t be more excited to see this new addition released. Building on the success of the existing helmet, the new Mod (for modular) retains all the great features, ventilation, and aggressive looks but adds the comfort and convenience of a flip-up chin bar.

Not leaving anything to chance, Touratech partnered with one of the best modular helmet manufacturers out there to work on the design, Schuberth. With the combined knowledge of both teams a beautiful blend of adventure motorcycle, touring, and off-road, technologies were combined with a touch of German flare.

The Aventuro Mod features an adjustable peak visor with three positions of coverage. For riders new to the dirt, this allows you to adjust to the optimum position to block the sun and help protect from branches or rocks flying off another riders tire. When the chin bar is flipped up the peak rotates out of the way for a fully open face. This makes stopping for water, taking photos, and many other tasks a easier by eliminating the need to remove your helmet entirely. When you’re ready to flip it back down, the peak returns automatically to its previously set position.

Class 1 optics are utilized with an anti-fog shield that can be popped open to 1”,2.5”, and 4” to boost or reduce airflow as needed. For those early mornings and late afternoons when you have to ride with the sun in your eyes, a flip down visor is included to help you stay one step ahead of any obstacle you encounter.

The Mod will be released with an included goggle strap holder for days of heavy dirt and will be setup to accept an integrated communication system. Seven high-vis color schemes will be available and the pre-orders are now open for an estimated Spring 2016 delivery.

The addition of a quiet and comfortable touring helmet blended with the ventilation and styling of a dual-sport lid is something the adventure motorcycle world has certainly needed. It gives you daily ride comfort and practicality with a dirt-focused look and adventure pedigree. We can’t wait to see one of these helmets for ourselves and look forward to their release.
