The Klim F4 Geard Helmet is an upgrade from the original ‘Klim F4’. Since the release of the original, Klim has been accumulating racer, customer, and dealer feedback as to how they could improve upon their already popular design. The result is the Klim F4 Geard; a combination of some of the most liked features of the F4 and several improved attributes that make the F4 Geard even more comfortable and better fitting than the original. One major difference is the improved ventilation.
Klim has incorporated deeper air channels in the EPS as well as increasing the size of the intake and exhaust ports. As a part of their all new Ram Air Induction Technology, Klim has given the F4 Geard an astounding 41 air intakes. These air intakes harvest air as it flows over the helmet, and also help to increase the structural integrity of the helmet. The plenum chamber is a pressure chamber network in the EPS that contributes to maximizing the amount of airflow in the helmet. As part of the new design, Klim has made the channels of the plenum chamber deeper; this allows an overall greater bandwidth of air to pass through the EPS to the rider’s head.
Another note-worthy enhancement for the Klim F4 Geard is the improved comfort liner. The comfort liner now has air perforations which contribute to overall air circulation. The comfort liner is also moisture wicking and works in conjunction with the WINDSTOPPER liner. The windstopper liner can be easily snapped onto the comfort liner in colder weather, and will allow moisture to be moved away from the head while still preventing air from coming in direct contact with the head. The windstopper is small and easy to store when not in use.
The shell of the Klim F4 Geard has been made with a zonal fiber select construction that consists of Aerospace fiberglass, Carbon Fiber, and Kevlar. This construction makes for a tough, durable shell, and an overall safer helmet. Some other new features for the F4 Geard include: removable cheek pads, a spare visor and visor bolt, breath deflector, and a non-intrusive eye port that broadens the rider’s field of vision. The F4 Geard comes with a deluxe, nylon carrying bag, and replacement parts are available. The F4 Geard helmet exceeds SNELL M2010 and US DOT standards.
