Samshield XC helmet
CE EN1384 (European)
BS EN1384:2012 (United Kingdom)
SEI/ASTM F1163 (United States)
The XC helmet was designed to meet active and passive safety requirements for extreme disciplines which are cross-country and racing.
The outer shell of the XC is made of pure carbon fiber, a composite material providing an unbeatable strength / weight ratio.
The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density providing a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact.
The internal comfort foam (liner), “shape memory”-kind, ensuring a constant thickness over the years of use and the semi-rigid jugular cancel all risks of tipping the helmet in case of a violent movement.
This internal comfort foam is removable thanks to a much stronger clip system than the scratch/Velcro system.
It can therefore be washed (max. 30°C) at will in order to constantly be able to wear a clean and fragrant helmet.
PERFECT SIZE ADJUSTMENT FOR UNMATCHED COMFORT
A thorough anthropomorphic study led to design an inner-shell form generating an unmatched comfort fitting.
2 shell sizes are available (M and L).
Each shell can accommodate 5 to 6 inner foams (liner) of different sizes in order to obtain a perfect adjustment to the rider’s head.
The size grid is available from 53 to 61.
With this system, it is also possible to follow the growth of a young rider.
INCREDIBLE INTERNAL AIRFLOW
Equipped with two front air inlets, the XC helmet provides exceptional ventilation. Fresh air is channeled from both the front entrance under the blazon as well as the channel obtained by the unique concept of no contact on the rider’s forehead*.
Fresh air expels the hot air to the back extractors around comfort foam (liner), making impossible sweating!
This concept generates a strong internal airflow avoiding the need for visible and unsightly air inlets.
2 inner foams (liner) are available:
• Liner “Closed” (closed at the level of the forehead): brings additional stability
• *Liner “Open” (open at the level of the forehead): ensures optimal airflow
Delivered with a removable and washable inside comfort liner (clip system fixation) + a transport backpack.
Available in black or blue.
