Final Year Project

JTD AERO LONGTAIL

This project addresses the lack of technology used in motorcycle helmets which remains unobtrusive allowing the rider to retain a pure riding experience. The helmet also uses traditional methods to reduce the turbulence at high speeds.

The Helmet features a hollow tail at the rear of the helmet which bridges the gap between the back of the helmet and the rider’s spine protector where on a traditional helmet turbulence forms. Additionally the side skirts at the bottom of the helmet direct the air round the helmet to ensure the air separates from the boundary layer at the optimal position to not create turbulence.
