DOWNHILL HELMETS AND ENDURO HELMETS
What do ski runs and downhill races have in common? Right! In both cases, courageous athletes ride down a slope – the target and the stopwatch always on their mind. Just as no one wants to imagine the skier without a helmet, this also applies to the biker and his downhill helmet. It is often used as a starting ramp for the downhill ride of a ten-metre-high mound. The downhill helmet or enduro helmet is neatly strapped on, the biker plunges into the depths. After only a few metres a first jump – and he or she continues with full throttle – over numerous hills and passages, often with jumps of up to ten metres. And until the decisive finish, having your downhill bike helmet always gives a feeling of safety. ###
THE DOWNHILL HELMET AS A SOLID COMPONENT OF EQUIPMENT
It is not only speed that gives a downhill biker a thrill, but the audience is in awe of the spectacular jumps. In addition to functional clothing and protectors, it is, of course, the downhill helmet, which is the most full face part of the equipment. Since in the downhill race not only every second but also every gramme counts, amateurs and professionals like to use downhill helmets in which made from carbon. The downhill helmet "Dissident" by SPECIALIZED belongs as a full-face helmet with just approx. 1,000 g in weight. The "Dissident" is one of the best ventilated and most advanced downhill helmets currently available on the market. The downhill helmet fulfils the ASTM DH test standard for increased chin and impact protection, is compatible with the EJECT system, has a neck protection system and who would not like to use the compatible earphones during a downhill "jump" with favourite tune blasting.
DOWNHILL HELMET - COMFORT ON THE JUMPS
There are no downhill helmets from POC, BELL or KALI. The latter is also presented with the "Avatar II" in carbon. The downhill helmet in the Fullface version is approx. 740 g. The "Avatar II Carbon " is the Composite Fusion Plus connection technology for helmet shell and EPS foam. The washable and antibacterial interior can be optimally adapted to the respective head shape using additional pads. The downhill helmet is equipped with a camera mount including a light holder so that the ride can be precisely analysed. For those who prefer it "airy", can choose a BELL downhill helmet. The "Super 2 from BELL" in red/black inspires the opponents to respect you. The downhill helmet has a robust polycarbonate helmet shell with 23 vent openings and safety-relevant certifications. The interior fittings and the TAG Fit system also play a role in the classification.
ENDURO HELMETS: WHEN DOWNHILL BIKES AND MOUNTAINBIKES COMBINE
Even though "mountain bikes helmets" are often used as freeriding bikes, this designation is not entirely correct. For the rider with his free ride helmet on a fully sprung bike, the mountain bike does not necessarily meet up to these expectations. There are some differences. For better power transmission on the road, "hardtails" are also popular here. However, in the free ride, suspension and safety play unique roles. Regarding suspension, the spring travel (180 mm) gives information; security promises a free ride helmet such as the above mentioned Bell Super 2 R with MIPS technology. This patented technology also protects the skull in the event of an impact. Furthermore, this enduro helmet spoils with an over brow ventilation, which with an original ventilation matrix, the air circulation of the Bicycle helmet, as well as the TAG Fit System, adapts to the head via two axles and can also be adjusted in height when the enduro helmet is worn.
