Strap and dividers
Do you also always suffer from straps on your helmet that get wriggled? With our strap dividers you don’t have to worry about this anymore. On our helmets you’ll find two types of dividers; our locking system dividers and our sliding system dividers. Both are adjustable and make sure the straps won't irritate you anymore. We provide our helmets with standard or lightweight straps, for the real speed devils that care about every gram. Some of our models have added reflection elements on the straps to give you some extra visibility.
All our helmets are provided with in-house designed retention systems. We designed them to fit perfectly to the helmets and to your head. These systems can easily be adjusted in circumference, exactly the way you want it to be. Some of them can even be adjusted in height to make the perfect fit for everybody. They can be adjusted with only one hand so that you can easily adjust them while riding your bike.
All our helmets have a tailor-made padding design to create maximum comfort. Our padding is slightly thicker than general paddings to provide you with optimal comfort. The padding needs to give you the feeling that you might even forget you're wearing it. We try to achieve this with every new helmet we design. Most of our padding types are washable and some are even designed to optimise the airflow over the head.
Airflow Cooling System (ACS)
When a helmet is designed with an Airflow Cooling System (ACS). This means a unique design determines the shape of the foam and padding within the helmet. The air will be guided over the head through the air channels which guarantees an optimal ventilation to keep your head cool.
The HaloGuard is a thin nylon cage construction that is placed high (on the outer side) within the foam of the helmet. The shape of the Haloguard gave the designers the opportunity to create seventeen huge air vents in the front. While they could close the top of the helmet to make it compact and aerodynamic. All without losing any performance in ventilation and safety. Through the large frontal air vents the air flows easily in the helmet, where it is pressed through a constriction, which causes a venturi effect. A higher velocity of the air will give the rider a better ventilation and a cooler head. Even at low speed.
Within some of our helmets we use our special Venturi channeling. The air flows into the helmet through the large frontal air vents. It is pressed through a constriction made in the shape of the inside of the helmet. This speeds up the airflow and causes the Venturi effect. At the back of the helmet the warm air from the head is pushed out. A higher velocity of the air will give the rider a better ventilation and thus a cooler head.
Every bicycle helmet contains a foam layer that will absorb and manage the energy of a crash and keeps your head protected. A few of our helmets also have a hard shell made of ABS or polycarbonate plastic. This ABS layer is glued on the helmet and is strong and reliable. It will spread out the impact of a crash and allows the foam to absorb the impact even better.
In-mold helmets are made differently and give you somewhat more protection. In the production of these helmets, small beads of plastic (polystyrene) are melted into a mold with the help of steam. Then, the foam is placed on the melted beads with pressure to make it into one single piece. This production process makes sure the bond is extremely strong and sealed. You can easily test this yourself by putting a little bit of pressure on the outside of the helmet with you thumb; you won't feel any space between the shell and the foam. This production process makes sure that your helmet gives you better protection against impact of a crash. The number one reason we put so much effort in our helmets.
In a helmet with the MIPS system the shell and the liner are separated by a Low Friction Layer. This low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relatively to the head when the impact on the head comes in from an angle. It is designed to add protection in helmets against the rotational motion. Most helmets will protect you very well against linear impact, but with MIPS they will also protect you against rotational energy (angular velocity) and rotational forces (from angular acceleration.
