The K-3 SV Pinlock is the result of the experience gained during the design process of the Pista GP and the Corsa. A very complete and versatile sport-touring helmet designed for those users looking for comfort and high performance, but also for those who seek design and a good value for money.
The outer shell is made of thermoplastic resin HIR-TH (High Resistant Thermoplastic). The helmet is sold in two outer shell sizes for a better fit to each size. For its part, the inner shell, or EPS, is available in four sizes and four densities to achieve maximum efficiency in the absorption of impacts.
The helmet has the approval ECE 22.05 and its weight moves around 1,400 grams depending on the size.
The IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) ventilation system consists of five large air intakes with on/off type closures and two rear extractors.
The air circulation system has been analyzed with the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) system, which studies in a computerized way by wind tunnel the behavior of the air flows inside the helmet. The result is a helmet that optimizes air currents for optimal internal ventilation, without the appearance of noise and turbulence.
Note that the mechanism for opening the air inlet of the chinrest is located in the area of the chin inside the helmet.
The screen of the K-3 SV Pinlock is transparent with anti-scratch and anti-fog treatment and is designed to offer a wide field of vision, both vertical and lateral. In addition, it incorporates standard anti-fog film Pinlock, a remarkable detail with respect to the model K-3 SV.
Thanks to the X-tra Quick Release system, we can disassemble and replace the screen without tools in a few seconds.
Another important aspect of the screen is that it has the mechanism PVS (Perimetral Visor Seal), which consists of a total sealing and protection against air currents and noise, something that is appreciated when we make long trips.
The screen is opened by the drive on the chin guard, just above the ventilation openings. This opening mechanism allows a great air circulation when we drive on the road or through the city on hot days.
As for the integrated solar viewer, it also has anti-scratch treatment and is easily removable without tools. The viewfinder opening and closure mechanism is on the left side of the screen.
Dry-Comfort interior padding with completely removable and washable hygienic treatment are the protagonists inside the helmet. With the helmet on, the feeling of comfort is maximum in all areas of the head.
Closure and details
As for the details, in addition to the removable chin guard and cover that make the helmet an even more complete product, the K-3 SV Pinlock accepts the SHARE integrated communication system, although it must be purchased separately.
The closure, on the other hand, is of micrometric type, being easily manipulated.
With the K-3 SV Pinlock we have a very complete helmet with good performance and all at a very competitive price. A helmet to put on by city or road. We can also find it in a host of different graphics and combine it with the different screens that are available.
Comment also that for those who like the K-3 SV and its benefits but want a security plus, there is also the fiber shell version, the K-5 S.
