    Thermostat Control

    Allows you to custom tune airflow instantly with a simple, low profile slider on the outside of the helmet. No other system is faster or easier to adjust.

    EPS Liner

    Expanded polystyrene (EPS) coats the inside of the helmet shell to absorb energy by compressing in the event of impact, reducing the risk of head injury.


    The multi-directional impact protection system. A low-friction membrane absorbs rotational energy from oblique impact, reducing violent forces on the brain and associated injury.

    Other Helmet Technology

    Super Cool Vents

    Passive ventilation channels are integrated in to the structure of the helmet to maintain airflow when on the move and prevent overheating during exertion.

    Stack Vent

    Ventilation channels in the brim of the helmet which allow for fog-causing air to be efficiently exhausted from vents in the top of your goggles.

    In Form Fit System

    Makes it easy to dial in a custom fit in seconds, even with gloves on. An ergo-friendly dial at the base of the helmet provides up to 6cm of adjustment and enhanced stability.

    Vertical Tuning

    The Vertical Tuning fitting system accommodates different goggles and head shapes by giving a degree of vertical adjustability for a custom fit free of gaper gap.
