Don't go 

with the flow

For more control over your comfort, the innovative G5-01 helmet duct system lets you direct the airflow to either your face (1), your visor (2), or a combination of both.

You can even adjust the amount of air coming from the top outlet (3) vs. the two side outlets (4), or choose a blend of both.

All airflow adjustments can be made while you’re wearing the helmet, maintaining your eye, face and respiratory protection.

Here’s a video showing airflow adjustment in the Speedglas G5-01:
