The Sporty Full-Face Helmet of Choice for Caberg’s Current Range

When Caberg pulled the sheets on their Avalon helmet in spring of last year, we were impressed at the price point – especially considering the premium features you were getting at half the cost. 

Now the Italian helmet manufacturer has given us an all-new lid to gawk at – and it’s a second Christmas for me any time a company decides to pull all the stops and give us a ‘best-of-the-best’ unit like these Italians just have.

World, meet the Drift Evo Carbon Sonic – a full-face helmet (and a tweaked sibling to the Drift Evo Carbon Pro model) that boasts top-of-the-range specs, including a perk from the company that will allow the rider to “replace the [new-gen] interior with those of the size above or below [on request], thus allowing a truly tailor-made fitting.”

Sizes for this model will range from XS-XL, with features for this year including a transparent spoiler designed to cut on noise and contribute a smooth unit for seamless aerodynamics; Bluetooth for top-of-the-line connectivity; a quick-release visor to make adjustment a cinch, complete with a double spring and locking lever to prevent condensation and encourage airflow, and Double Visor tech – coupled with anti-fogging capabilities and a series of new air vents to promote breathability for the rider.

Drift Evo Carbon Sonic will be available in two color themes – Anthracite + White, and Anthracite + Red. Both carbon and fiberglass models will have a glossy finish and carbon shell, and with the helmet coming to dealers in the Central Hemisphere from mid-March 2022 (and the pricing currently set at €399,99 for the carbon – VAT included) we’re expecting that this lid will give others in its category a run for its money.

No way to tell until we get one of our reviewers cracking (it’s been a while since the Caberg EGO helmet review back in 2017) – we’ll keep you posted when we get our hands on this beauty.
