VX-PRO4 Barcia-3 Off-Road Helmet (685311182005) by PinLock®. The latest expression of the ultimate off-road helmet, the brand new VX-Pro4 evolved from the much-loved VX-Pro3 model. So it’s still the perfect choice for MX, enduro and off-road use. The basic and simple organic shell shape is based on the R75 shape concept. The absence of exaggerated edges or protrusions on the shell should not be mistaken for a lack of imagination. It’s a visual demonstration of our commitment to maintaining the integrity of the shell with real-world impact performance.

A SMOOTH INSTEAD OF RIDGED SHELL
The shell itself is consistently round and smooth, maintaining the R75 Shape concept in areas above the acknowledged test line and influencing those below the test line. Here, the rounded chin bar maintains the same compact shell length as the previous model, the VX-Pro3. The result is less protrusion, which has proven to be less likely to catch and dig in during a spill.
In order to maximize performance, we precisely assemble the shell from multiple proprietary components. Super Fiber, one of the primary materials, costs up to six times more than standard fiberglass but provides 30% higher tensile strength and increased penetration resistance. The cLc (complex Laminate construction) method demands precise and time-consuming assembly by master craftsmen from many individual pieces.
CHIN BAR VENT GRILL
Installed on the uniquely rounded chin bar, the stainless mesh grill is now mounted from the outside on the exterior vent cap and can be easily removed for cleaning or damage replacement. The vent cap is also designed to break away from the chin bar in the event of impact.
The Air-Through top-rear-duct center brace also functions as a goggle-strap locator. The diffusers can be removed or replaced quickly and easily by removing a single screw on the rear-duct center brace.
The Goggle-Strap Locator keeps the goggle strap in position even during aggressive, competitive riding. The new top-rear-duct center brace, together with the side port cowlings, also assist in keeping the strap in position on the side and back areas.
The new peak is 14mm longer and 5mm wider than the previous model for improved ability to deflect roost and flying debris. To compensate for increased lift, the air outlets on the new peak have been made larger as well.
EMERGENCY RELEASE SYSTEM
The revised Emergency Release Cheek Pad system has the release tab repositioned and is easier to access by rescue staff.
REMOVABLE NECK ROLL
The all-new removable neck roll allows easy and convenient cleaning of the helmet.
It is a fact: visors have been fogging up as long as we have been riding motorbikes. People have tried everything in all those years from soap suds to potatoes and even spit, but nothing provided a solution to have a fully fog free shield under the different conditions that a motorbike rider needs to cope with. Until Derek Arnold, an importer of motorbike helmets, had a flash of inspiration. His idea consisted of applying the double shield principle. An insert made of moisture-absorbing material was secured to the shield with pins, which ensured that an ‘air-tight chamber’ was created. In combination with the very good moisture-absorbing prosperities of the material that was used, this “Pinlock” system guaranteed that a fogged up shield was definitely something of the past. In addition to the high-quality material of the insert, the pins also ensured consumer convenience. The Pinlock pins can be adjusted and, therefore, ensure that the insert can be installed and replaced easily.
It is not difficult to imagine that Pinlock® went through an enormous growth period during the years that followed and that it brought about a true revolution in the motorbike market. Herman de Boer was also appointed as Managing Director of Pinlock Systems B.V. as well as Derek Arnold to ensure that this boom could be properly managed and to ensure that Pinlock could develop further as a company. This professionalisation was partly responsible for Pinlock Systems B.V. setting up a special division to be able to also serve the police and military markets.
Pinlock’s mission is transparent and clear: to continue to innovate with new materials and ideas. On the one hand, this will take place by setting up a line of high-quality products under its own label. On the other hand, by producing customized solutions for Pinlock’s partners who are highly valued.
