Remember the days when parents would press ugly helmets on your head before you mounted your brand new bike? Well, those times may be long gone, but we can’t get rid of mum’s echoing warning to keep that skull safe and sound. If you recognise that safety comes first but fashion takes a very close second, then this protective headgear is going to be right up your street (or slope). While it looks just like a hat with a strap system, it conceals a clever hard shell that safeguards you from nasty knocks and bumps.
helt-pro reduces the risk of head injuries and is classified as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Category 1. Does not comply with standards for protective headgear like helmets and is not a substitute for a helmet. It does not give the same level of protection. The expected protection is equivalent to approx. 50 to 70% in regards to the EN1077 and EN1078 EU Standards. Interchangeable covers. Can be used for cycling, skiing, snowboarding etc. Available in head circumference size S (56-57 cm), M (58-59 cm) or L (60-61 cm). How to gauge size: measure your head circumference with a measuring tape. Loosely lay the tape 1 cm over the eyebrows and the ears. Your measurement should be between or below the two values of your chosen dimension above.
