Helmet House Redoes The Accelerator


Helmet House (Booths 3001 and 3205) has revamped one of its popular jackets. The Accelerator Series 2 is aimed at dual-sport and adventure-touring riders. A lot of things on this jacket can be removed. Because its sleeves can be taken off, the jacket easily converts from a cold-weather jacket to a warm-weather vest. A quilted liner and CE-approved armor are removable as well. Two chest pockets can be taken off to reveal large ventilation panels with mesh backing. They combine with adjustable sleeve vents and rear exit vents to keep air flowing. Finally, in another nod to the adventure-touring crowd, a removable backpack/hydration pack is incorporated into the jacket. The Accelerator Series 2 comes in all black or silver/black in sizes XS-XXXXL (4XL in black only), MDT-3XLT. It retails for $229.99.
