roof desmo helmets


  • Protective: As all the modulars helmets of the brand, the Desmo has the double certification Jet and Full-Face (E22-05). Also, all the Roof helmets, including the Desmo, are certified by UTAC, an independent French laboratory.


  • Roof Desmo Shell: Its thermoplastic composites shell and chinbar, its polycarbonate injected visor, its very reliable locking mechanism and its double density polystyrene absorbing part allow you to drive safely. 


  • Ventilation: Top Venturi air intakes with vacuum of air, combined with a ventilated shock absorbing part allow effective and diffuse ventilation of the head. The chinbar has two air intake shutters, a first one for disseminating air to the face, and a second, which, combined with an air deflector, allows to project the air directly to the visor so allows an efficient and rapid demisting


  • Sealed and Soundproof: In all weather conditions, the Desmo has a very efficient sealing thanks to the coupling of a an upper lip seal and a second seal located on the chinbar. The second seal located is associated with a residual foam which allows to increase these qualities. The chinbar's shape, and the reduction of resonances lateral boxes allow to the Desmo to own soundproofing qualities like a real full-face helmet.


  • Desmodromic: As is name suggest, the Desmo in equipped with screen mechanism based on desmodromics cams. The patent of this system was filed by the Roof Company in 2005. This mechanism allows the screen to rotate and slide below or above the chinbar. It's this movement that allows the Desmo to possess al the qualities of a  jet helmet and a full face helmet.


  • Ergonomics: Simply press two buttons simultaneously (lower and upper) to unlock the chinbar. For security added, unlocking is impossible if the top button is not pressed. Conversely, the locking takes place simply by the flap of the chinbar in full-face position until the perceptible outbreak of the mechanism. Simply security!
