Supersonic - High performance wingsuit helmet

Pressurized has just released pictures and information on their new wingsuit helmet called the Supersonic

From their website:

With the design focus on the requirments of wingsuit helmets, the Supersonic gives you the optimum aerodynamics for high performance pilots. A unique ventilation system additionally supports the aerodynamics of the helmet.

A specially designed air-duct feeds a pressure chamber integrated into the helmet. Air will be transfered via micro-drillings to the outer shell of the helmet, forcing the regular airflow to separate from the boundary layer. Basically this ventilation system provides extra performance when reaching more than 80km/h.

The 370g lightweight construction is made of carbon-fibers.
