X-lite X-551 GT Adventure Helmet- by Nolan
The X-551 has become the X-551 “GT” (Gran Turismo). The use of latest generation fabrics for the new Touring Performance inner comfort padding and the redesigned configuration of the cheek pads have significantly improved comfort and fit. The look of the helmet has also been meticulously thought through.
Designed for riders of adventure bikes, but also ideal for dirt roads, the X-551 GT is available in three outer shell sizes and can be used in its full configuration or without the peak or the visor.
It features a visor that is perfectly integrated with the design of the product, inner VPS (Vision Protection System) sunscreen and an efficient ventilation system.
The broad peak, designed for use on dirt roads, ensures adequate protection from the sun#s rays. Finally, the X-551 GT is equipped with a DD-ring retention system and is set up for the N-Com X-Series BX4 PLUS communication system.
This is X-lite’s on/off full-face helmet. Its compact volume (thanks to the availability of three outer shell sizes), VPS sunscreen (also available in yellow, designed for easier riding in low-visibility conditions), efficient TVS Touring Ventilation System, broad peak, Unitherm2 Touring Performance Comfort inner comfort padding with marked touring characteristics and N-Com communication system (ready for) make the X-551 GT a reference on/off full-face helmet for the most demanding of motorcycle tourists.
