Helmet technology

Fundamental to our helmet philosophy is the fact that the ultimate helmet exists in the combination of world class impact protection, low volume and low weight. 

Our rule is never to shave off weight by compromising the performance. It is achieved by innovation and engineering, brought to life with the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing methods. Our distinctive design and attitude is reflected in the products and is an essential role in each creation and concept.

All our helmets are constructed with interconnected layers of protection, enabling us to create helmets with low volume, light weight and still offering world class impact protection. Our highest performing helmets consists of four layers illustrated beneath:
 

article1img3 article1img4

Shell

Each shell consists of several areas that has variable elasticity and rigidity. The properties are tuned to work with the anatomy of the skull, protecting the week spots without adding unnecessary weight or volume.
 

Liner

The liner is the main shock absorbing structure. The main liner is made out of relative low density EPS foam which is tuned to match the properties of the shell. The EPS foam has ideal crush characteristics to effectively reduce forces in an impact.
 

Impact Shields

Sweet Protection impact shields distributes impacts from the inside over a larger surface area. Works in areas where the heads' geometry has a sharper radii, such as the forehead or rear occipital lobe.
 

MIPS

The MIPS brain protection system is a helmet-integrated, low friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.
 

Shell Technologies

The outer shell is the first layer of protection. We use shells with variable rigidity and elasticity. Optimized to give the ultimate protection with the variable geometry of the head.
 

ABS Race Shell

Our injection molded ABS Thermoplastic Shell- Race is very impact resistant through its special rubber toughened construction. The shell is molded with extreme precision to offer the best performance to weight ratio.

Variable Elasticity Advanced Hybrid Shell

The unique lightweight Advanced Hybrid shell construction is a combination of an in-mold helmet and a hard shell helmet. The hard shells reinforce the circumference of the helmet helping to transfer the load of impacts in critical areas, while the in-molded areas ensures elasticity is kept where needed.

Pre-Preg Carbon icon

Pre-Preg Carbon / Polyamide Fiber hybrid Shell

The Carbon Fiber Hybrid shell is our most ad vanced carbon fiber composite shell. Each shell is hand made in an advanced multi-direction lay-up, ensuring optimized impact and penetration performance for speed events. A high pressure molding process makes sure the shell has minimum voids.

Helmets with Pre-Preg Carbon:

Composite Drop Impact Protection (CDIP) Shell

An internal composite shell that covers the crown area of the helmet. The purpose of the Composite Drop Impact Protection (CDIP) shell is to disperse impacts from falling objects while allowing us to keep the volume of the helmet down.

Helmets with CDIP:

Thermoplastic Laminated Carbon Fiber (TLC) Shell

The Thermoplastic laminated carbonfiber shell combines the elasticity of injection-molded thermoplastic with the rigidity and strength of carbon fiber. It enables us to very effectively tune the shell for different properties in different areas for optimized performance.

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Shell

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Shell (CRP) provides an incredible strength to weight ratio, rigidity and impact performance. By carefully laminating fibers with different properties and directions, we’re able to create a superlight, optimized helmet shell. An invention from the cold war put to good use.

Our core design philosophy stronger- lighter-better guides all of our decisions. We are over achievers with extremely high expectations for our products; well above and beyond industry certifications and standardized tests.


 

Impact Shields

The impact shield is additional feature to slow down the forces of an impact. Harmonizing with the EPS liner. Impact shields distributes impacts from the inside over a larger surface area. Works where the head has a sharper geometry.

Impact Shields

Helmets with Impact Shields feature a molded shock absorbing EPS liner with Impact Shield inserts that provide unsurpassed performance for shock absorbance. This is our premium impact protection technology. It distributes impact from the inside of the helmet over larger areas in crucial zones where the head needs it (front and back).

Gate Shields

EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) with polycarbonate shells in-molded into the main EPS liner to protect the shock absorbing structure of the helmet from gate impacts. The Gate Shields are placed both in the front and the back of the helmet, as the gates tend to bend after an impact in the front, and hit the helmet in the back as well.
