The liner is fused with the outer shell under high pressure and strong heat for a lasting connection. This makes the helmet very robust and lightweight.
The inner shell is made from High Expanded Polystyrene with numerous microscopic air chambers that absorb impact energy in case of a fall.
A break- and scratch-resistant polycarbonate outer shell that is pressed onto an HI-EPS body under high pressure and with strong heat. Antistatic.
Sharp edges are eliminated during the manufacturing process in order to protect your hands when adjusting the helmet as well as to effectively protect your neck and shoulders in case of an impact.
RUN SYSTEM ERGO MIPS:
The first adjustment system with built-in MIPS. The RUN SYSTEM ERGO FLEX MIPS allows for an individual, height-adaptable adjustment of the helmet. This combination provides additional comfort, as well as increased safety for accidents with rotational forces.
WHAT IS MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a slip-plane system within the helmet. It is designed to rotate inside the helmet and thus slow down or reduce the impact energy acting on the brain, which helps reduce head injuries caused by rotational impacts.
WHY IS MIPS IMPORTANT?
When a head rotates quickly and comes to a sudden stop, the rotational acceleration may cause the brain tissue to experience high levels of strain. This stretching of the tissue caused by these motions may result in various types of brain injury. MIPS is designed with the intent to address rotational acceleration from impact.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MIPS uses a slip-plane system that moves inside the helmet, mimicking the brain’s own protection system. This layer is designed to rotate inside the helmet with the intent to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head. Science tells us that if we can reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, we might reduce the risk and severity of brain injury.
CUSTOM FIT SYSTEM:
The angle of the fitting system may be adjusted in several steps to fit as snugly around your head as possible.
The strap closure with a red press button and a multi-step ratchet mechanism can be operated with just one hand. It won't become loose in case of a fall.
Both straps can be easily adjusted at the ears, so that you can adapt the position of the straps to your individual head shape.
The padding material reduces the formation of bacteria and odours from sweating. The removable, washable helmet pads have been dermatologically tested and showed excellent skin tolerance.
