If you take a closer look at the structure of the helmets, you immediately notice the concept with an inner and outer shell. The outer shell made of ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is extremely stable and at the same time particularly light. The inner shell of the helmet consists of 3 layers of polystyrene with different density structures. These ensure optimal shock absorption in the event of a fall. The fit system inside the helmet ensures a safe and comfortable hold. This adapts itself to the cuddly upholstery, especially to the back of the rider's head.
