A little over half an hour from here in the Nantahala Gorge, one of the world's most exciting roadways claws its way over the Dragon that straddles the North Carolina and Tennessee border. With 318 curves in just 11 Miles, the Tail of the Dragon is the dream road of any rider. On bright sunny days, hundreds of bikers arrive on their steeds in hopes of taming this dangerous beast.
When riding your bike, and especially when riding the dragon, it's important to have the best safety gear, such as the hjc ac-12 carbon helmet.
The new AC-12 by HJC incorporates race proven and "real world" tested features such as the Advanced Channeling Ventilation System (ACVS), and unique CAD generated shell sculpture, creating one of the most technologically advanced helmets in its class.
The AC-12 is available in Black, Dark Yellow, Matte Grey, Red, Royal Blue, Silver and White. It features Advanced Composite Material "ACM" Shell Construction and a Flow-Thru "ACVS" Advanced Channeling Ventilation System. It's Anti-Fog System with removable / washable AquaTrans® Interior is made for the sometimes misty conditions that are frequently found here in the Great Smoky Mountains. The helmet also features a Nylon Strap-Retention Band, a 3rd Generation Two-Stage Pivot / Compression Shield Closure System, and aHJ-09 Anti-Fog Face Shield.
