The patented ERGO3 is a new and unique technology that allows the shell of the helmet to adapt to the size of the wearer‘s head. The QuattroVarioflex mirror technology of the visor eliminates reflections, distracting glare and infra-red radiation. It highlights contours and automatically adapts its tint to the lighting conditions. The visor has a draught-excluding foam lining at the bottom and plenty of room behind to allow glasses to be worn comfortably inside the helmet. The visor offers an impressive 180° field of vision.
Hard shell helmets have an impact-resistant ABS or polycarbonate outer shell on top of the EPS inner shell. This combination makes the helmets extremely tough and ensures perfect insulation against the cold.
The inner shell of every Alpina helmet consists of HI-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). These microscopic air pockets absorb the forces that act in an impact and provide the protective damping. HI-EPS allows extra-thin wall thicknesses and slim helmet shapes to be achieved. As HI-EPS absorbs neither water nor perspiration the protective effect is retained for a long time.
ERGO³ allows the helmet to be adjusted so that it fits the head accurately. This involves altering the volume of the helmet, not its circumference. A ratchet locking system allows one shell of the helmet to be finely adjusted to fit around the head. This results in greatly improved comfort and an enhanced feeling of safety.
Proven a hundred-thousand-fold and used in all Alpina ski helmets: Our famous strap buckle with a red push button and multi-step automatic locking mechanism. Ergomatic can be operated when wearing ski gloves – the strap can be loosened while using the ski lift and tightened again before the downhill run – and is prevented from opening on its own in a crash.
Further airstream regulation features the Airstream Control Ventilation openings of the helmet can be opened and closed by a sliding mechanism. Perfect climate around your head is guaranteed.
The Alpina Neckwarmer is pulled down low at the back of the helmet and consists of a comfortable, soft micro-fleece material. This “heat collar” also prevents the neck from being hit by air draft at high speed and Siberian temperatures. Thanks to its clever construction there are no pressure points.
Helmets with an Integrated visor. The generous amount of space behint the visor makes these helmets perfect for people who wear glasses.
