Premier Helmets Dragon Evo Titanium, which has been updated for 2013 with the addition of a Pinlock ready visor and inserts, plus a free dark tinted race visor, shares the technological innovations found in one of the most acclaimed supercars, the Pagani Huayara.

The Huayra has won a host of international awards since its launch including the Top Gear Magazine Hypercar of the Year 2012, CAR magazine's Performance Car of the Year and EVO Car of the Year 2012.

The external shell of the helmet is made from Titanium-Vectran-Carbon (TVC), an exclusive fabric that can be used only by Premier in worldwide exclusive right for the manufacture of motorcycle helmets.

TVC is exactly the same material that the chassis of the Pagani Huayra is made from. Pagani describe the material as 100% carbotanium.

Carbotanium, or Titanium-Vectran-Carbon is a new material, which is significantly stronger than carbon fibre and delivers the ultimate in lightness and strength. The material also increases the stiffness dramatically.

TVC provides exceptional shock absorption capabilities - in tests the Dragon Evo Titanium showed it had 35% better shock absorption than other classic carbon or tri-composite helmet shells.

Moulded with the "bag moulding" system, the shell weighs in at just 1,100 grammes making it one of the lightest helmets available on the market at the moment.

It is the result of year's of development in conjunction with professional riders such as two-times Supersport World Champion Andrew Pitt and three-times Superbike World Champion Troy Bayliss.

The Premier Dragon Evo Titanium is available for trade customers from DPC Distribution and can also be purchased at
