Day to day skilled Engineers go through various enhanced tests to meet the needs of our valued customers. In order to meet the highest quality standards, all of the products are executed with stringent test measures. In order to achieve the highest level of performance, various stages of aerodynamic tests are performed in our own HJC wind tunnel test lab in parallel with live testing situations.
Comport and fitting is an integral part of HJC’s helmets, and HJC helmets are designed and engineered around the actual human laser scanned profiles for precision fitting. Beyond the measures, HJC helmets are tested through extremity of International Test Standards for safety and protection. Above the expectations, HJC in-house test labs are facilitated with advanced test equipment to achieve optimal level of aerodynamics, safety and performance.
Coming from MotoGP race-helmet design experience, HJC designers and engineers become experts in aerodynamics and wind ventilated helmets. In order to balance the shapes and forms to be in harmony with the speed and resistance, one must possess years of understanding and knowledge about the characteristics of airflow. With the years of heritage in making of helmets, the HJC engineered products make the standing differences in aerodynamics amongst the standards.
HJC Wind Tunnel Test Lab
HJC helmets are constantly tested in both laboratory as well as in “real” life for highest quality standards. HJC is only one of very few helmet companies who are facilitated with its own state of the art wind tunnel testing laboratory to test the aerodynamics, ventilation, noise, and more. Across from technical adaptation of motorcycle race technology to high-end road cycle helmets, HJC wind tunnel test lab measures the constant force within the riding condition.
Advanced Ventilation System
In order to achieve the maximum ventilation results, technical adaptation of Bernoulli's principle is adapted to aerodynamic enhanced models. In motion, the speed of surface flow rate in general increases towards the rear progression. Through the pressure differences, cool air from the frontal intake is exhausted through the rear vent with internal heat dissipation, which gives rider optimum ventilated riding results.
1. Fluid energy preservation principle states that amount energy of fluid’s location energy, motion energy, and pressure energy are constant.
2. If the fluid motion increases the pressure will decrease, therefore if the sectional area where fluid passes gets smaller, the fluid motion speed will increase and the pressure will decrease.
Advanced Exhaust Ventilation Performance
HJC helmets are designed and engineered through wind tunnel test verification analysis. From all perspective, when in riding, test results foreshows that Furion exhaust ventilation outperforms all our other competitors.
Optimum Drag Force
HJC helmets are designed and engineered to have optimal drag force through wind tunnel testing. In comparison to our competitor’s models, HJC Furion measures the lowest drag force in drag force testing. The results of drag force testing have demonstrated that with HJC Furion you can save 7% more energy than the competitor’s models.
Advanced Air Channel System
Air channel is an optimal air passage that are shaped and designed within the inner surface of the helmet for maximum internal airflow. Depending on the riders speed, certain amount of air will travel inside the helmet by the frontal intake vent and through the inner air passage and out to exhaust vent. Optimal circulation of the air through the air channel helps to cool the head while in heated riding condition.
Internal Reinforcement Structure
Embedded within the EPS is the engineered skeletal frame that is designed to bind the structure of the helmet together while at possible impact. Skeletal frame is not only to holds the helmet together while impact but also works as added impact support reinforcement making the helmet more rigid.
In-Mold Construction is method of binding the EPS together with the outer polycarbonate shell to have more conformed strength in structure. By binding the shell and EPS together helps protection with compact reinforcement and gives clean finish appeal to the product.
All helmets are integrated with special Polygiene Silver Salt (Silver Chloride) particles. Polygiene is an antimicrobial property, and this natural ingredient has the sufficient ability to eliminate bacteria and fungi growth. Polygiene prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi at the source, permanently. Prolonged odor control is possible as the natural elements which are technically integrated into the fabric and will not wash out. Through the healthcare sector, Polygiene has applied its expertise and testing to ensure that there is no effect on the natural bacterial flora of the skin.
HJC Road Cycle Helmets are designed and engineered through precision measures to have lightest weight construction as possible. Thickness and density, placement and shapes, materials bits and parts all plays a part in having lightest weight construction. While keeping the esthetic design of the helmet Engineers constantly search to have the lightest helmet construction as possible. Every day is breaking the limits and finding advancement towards product safety, comfort, and lightweight with astonishing inspiring designs for the riders.
3D Laser Scan Precision Engineering
Actual profiles of selective people are 3D scanned and analyzed to acquire the best precision engineering foundation to head sizes and shapes. Helmets designed based from 3D scanned data helps to reach close comfort proximity for the riders. With 3 shell composition, HJC designers and engineers develop the utmost comfortable helmet to fit wide range riders of ethnic groups and genders.
