Airoh History

Airoh – Locatelli S.p.A.


The motorcycle safety helmet manufacturer Locatelli S.p.A. was founded in 1986 in the lively heart of Bergamo’s Valleys. The company began life as a contractor for various established brands. 1997 was to mark a major turning point for the company. Thanks to an impressive level of expertise, which included superior technical skills, a know-how that was second to none and the experience brought by years of hard, passionate work, Antonio Locatelli, the founder of the company that started from humble beginnings, was able to launch the company onto the global market with a personal range of products. From that moment on, the company has signed its own collections with the Airoh trademark, a brand that in just a few years has grown to be one of the leading names in the commodities sector, both in Italy as well as abroad. Research, development, technology and innovation are the cornerstones of the Airoh formula that, in little more than 15 years, has allowed our products to become one of the leading motorcycle sport helmet manufacturers on the national and international market. Today, our products are worn by people from more than fifty-five countries spanning the European and American continents. Our helmets are designed and built down to the smallest detail, and they are instantly recognisable by their unique and superior features: in particular their guaranteed high level of safety, quality and comfort-fit, and their eye-catching appearance. Riders and technicians work shoulder to shoulder, and data collected from race tracks from around the world is interpreted, developed and processed to produce the best helmet possible. Thanks to the technology and experience of champions, Airoh is constantly breaking new ground to satisfy motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere. The racing department, as well as being invaluable in the manufacture of cutting-edge products, is also not surprisingly the pride of the company. Airoh riders have many world titles in their personal trophy cabinets that make us proud of this winning combination. Locatelli S.p.A. is horizontally expanding its own product range by offering more than just motorcycle accessories. The new street and mountain bike helmets mark an important step in the company's history, which has always set itself apart by looking for new incentives and challenges with a great sense of initiative and productivity. Airoh, one brand, one passion!

Attention Mr Antonio Locatelli,Dear Sir my name is Graham McFerran I have been riding and racing motorcycles for nearly 40 years and during that time purchased many helmets including well known brands such as Bell,Shoei Arai,AGV, Nolan to name a few.While attending the 2017 Australian Moto GP I saw a display of a fairly un know brand in Australia Airoh Helmets.I liked the design and features so I took a gamble and in January this year I ordered a ST701 online from Evo Motion in Italy , a decision I now regret! Allow me to explain why. When the helmet arrived I tried it on and the medium fit was very comfortable but to my shock when I went to fasten the helmet the strap very short making it difficult to safely secure! I contacted Airoh Helmets re the problem a Miss Angela Locatelli replied and suggested I return the ST701 to the factory to have a longer strap fitted. I sent the helmet back via Australia Post on the 5 March. According to shipping records it arrived at Millan Customs on the 14 March. Millan Customs contacted Airoh Helmets on the 15 March asking for information to ascertain if duty was payable.That was 13 days ago and they are now threatening to return the helmet to Australia and charge me return freight if your company does not intervene! I have sent numerous emails to the "Customer Care" section over the last week requesting them for assistance in getting the helmet out of customs and repaired but they have failed to do so! So far I've spent over $500 on a helmet I cannot use + a further $96 on freight and regret ever having taken that gamble in buying it! Please can you intervene on my behalf ? Yours sincerely, Graham

To whom it may concern, I could not wait for the launch of the Airoh commander helmet, I have ridden, raced and fallen in Shark helmets and I can contest to their quality product. So, I decided to wait for the launch of the Airoh commander in white, only to be told that the black helmet would only be brought into Australia. So, in one of the hottest countries in the southern hemisphere Airoh decides to import a Matt black helmet, why?....maybe your importer should get on a motorcycle ride it through the the outback wearing a black helmet in 45 degrees heat, I bet he would order white helmets after that excursion.

Hi, I owned a Matt Black Airoh Commander helmet for a month now and I must say I like it very much. The design, the looks, give a thumbs up. Kudos.
