knows the street only by hearsay
There are precisely three things downhill bikers want from their head protection: safety, safety and more safety. Don’t worry: the FULLFACE downhill helmet from Alpina fulfils all three requirements with flying colours – and looks super-fast too. What’s more, the FULLFACE complies with the EN-1077 standard for ski helmets as well as EN-1078 for cycle helmets.
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.
The removable slide-in visor protects the face both from splashing mud and from solar radiation.
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.
The front ventilation holes have a mesh lining which effectively works as an insect screen to protect the wearer’s head from insect bites when riding in hot or humid conditions.
