Description of Uvex jakkyl - Helmet - red-petrol mat
Up. Lock. Down.
Enduro: above all, this stands for versatility and the ability to adapt to any trail and terrain - uphill and down. With the uvex jakkyl hde, uvex presents a correspondingly versatile helmet with convenient details for ambitious Enduro pilots. The goal of the uvex developers was the perfect balance of fit, ideal ventilation, competitive weight - and, true to the uvex motto protecting people - maximum safety.
The uvex developers have been working on the uvex jakkyl hde for over a year together with the triple Fourcross world champion and Enduro professional Michal Prokop. The helmet is formed lower than conventional bike helmets on the sides and at the back, protecting a larger area of the head.
The fastening for the goggles is integrated in the design. The helmet can be used with firmly fixed goggles - a valuable feature that bikers usually miss on classic helmets. "I like to use goggles instead of classic sunglasses for better visibility on fast downhills. When I take a break or need to go uphill for a short stretch I can just rest the goggles on top of the helmet thanks to the infinitely adjustable visor", Prokop explains.
A particularly important factor for physically demanding Enduro-tours: The elaborate ventilation system with 14 ventilation openings and interior ventilation channels of the uvex jakkyl hde ensures you keep a cool head. The core piece of the uvex jakkyl hde helmet is the sophisticated multi-inmould construction with eight individual PC shells that guarantees best possible protection that is typical for uvex. The 360 degree BOA system ensures ideal fit and individual adaptation. Using a set dial at the back, the helmet is adjusted all around the head for a perfect fit. The clear advantage for bikers: No unwanted slipping of the helmet during fast manoeuvres or jumps, a comfortable fit and added safety.
