• 18 large vents, 4 OVERBROW VENTILATION ports, 8 vents inside the chin bar
• Removable chin bar
• FLOAT FIT system for easy adjustments
• Adjustable GOGGLEGUIDE visor with goggle mount
• Integrated action camera mount with breaking point
• Removable XT-2 padding inside
• MIPS system reduces rotational forces
Weight: approx. 640 g (size M)
FUSION IN-MOLD POLYCARBONATE SHELL:
The EPS foam is injected directly into the thin micro shell while it is still in the mould, instead of shaping it separately and sticking it on.
The ventilation system pulls cool air in through the front of the helmet. Special air channels then usher the cool air over the head while letting warm air escape. Deep intake ports on the brow draw in cool air.
The helmet adjustment system combines comfort and safety with an especially lightweight design. FLOAT FIT optimises the fit of the helmet – thanks to various width and vertical adjustment options. The arms wrap around the back of the head to further reduce weight and ensure easy handling. Therefore, the helmet fits your head perfectly. Simple, lightweight and comfortable.
The adjustable visor system firmly holds your goggles in place. It folds up easily to offer enough space to attach the goggles to the helmet.
The X-STATIC XT2 pads come with interwoven silver threads. They are fast drying and antibacterial to reduce odours. In addition, the X-STATIC pads keep the rider cold when it’s hot and a warm when it’s cold thanks to their thermal characteristics.
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 to 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 can 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, imitating 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.
