MountainBIKE 05/13 Grade: excellent
MountainBIKE magazine summed it up pretty well: „Super-adjustable,
excellent ventilation and very comfortable due to its minimal weight — a real high-end helmet.“ The Alpina Pheox L.E. mountain bike helmet
is the perfect partner for race or tour.
The high-end helmet offers a sporty exterior, exquisite matte styling with a shield, 20 air flow vents and numerous time-tested solutions. It is fitted with the Ergo Pro Run System for optimum adjustment. The biggest difference between the twin Pheos L.E.: ALPINA TWINSHELL, a high-end ALPINA technology, replaces the "Carbon Stays" used in Pheos L.E. ALPINA TWIN-SHELL is a second ceramic structure underneath the upper shell which provides additional reinforcement for the helmet. This makes Alpina Pheox L.E. the dream partner for all trail surfers, Alps crossers and all-mountain bikers.
Note: Please measure the head circumference to get the right helmet size.

Alpina helmets have inner shells made of Hi-EPS (highly expanded polystyrene). This material consists of many microscopically small air chambers which effectively absorb the forces caused by an impact. Hi-EPS provides optimum protection with the benefit of allowing extra-thin walls.
Is applied to the lower edges of the helmet by the IN-MOLD method. This is a crucial safety feature in the case of a sideways crash and is effective protection against damage to the HI-EPS in daily use.
The Inmold production process involves the polycarbonate outer shell of the helmet being heated to a high temperature and „baked“ onto the EPS helmet body at high pressure. This produces a permanent bond across the entire surface of the inner and outer shells, producing a helmet with the advantage of being very light yet extremely stable.
A second polycarbonate shell with a lattice structure extending across the entire helmet between the outer shell and the EPS body, providing additional rigidity. This second shell is permanently bonded to the outer shell and the EPS material of the helmet body using the Inmold process, and allows the best possible distribution of pressure in the event of a crash.
The removable slide-in visor protects the face both from splashing mud and from solar radiation.
RUN SYSTEM ERGO PRO:
The top-of-the-range model of ALPINA’s new adjustment systems for the rear of the head features two large “head rests” to the left and right of a newly-designed adjustment wheel. These two wing-shaped pads and the adjustment wheel are made of twin-component mix of plastic and rubber. Since 2014, Run System Ergo Pro has been available in colours to match the helmet.
Tried and tested countless times, this is the buckle used in all Alpina cycle helmets. It features a red push button and multi-step automatic adjustment. It can be used one-handed, so for example you can loosen the strap when riding uphill and tighten it again for the descent, and it cannot come open in the event of a crash.
A helmet can only provide proper protection if it stays securely in place in the event of an impact. The fastening that joins the two straps under the ear is critical to this. Alpina’s Y-Clip system guarantees a perfect fit down to the last millimetre, all in a matter of seconds.
