This helmet has a 3D-shaped center pad for optimum wearing comfort, ear pads for more comfort and noise reduction. In addition, there are different air inlets and outlets for optimal ventilation of fresh air in the helmet, to avoid overheating and fatigue due to bad air.

This also ensures that the used air is optimally drained from the helmet and a permanent fresh air supply is always guaranteed.
In addition, a spoiler is installed to improve the aerodynamics, which in combination with the optimized helmet shape guarantee a good performance.

This system guarantees a shock-absorbing shell with the best stiffness.
Underneath the outer shell is a modular styroporker system consisting of different styrofoam core elements which have different degrees of damping.

The closure is a double-D closure which is easy to operate and can withstand a lot.
