Alpina Carapax JR. Kids Helmet - indigo matt

Alpina Carapax JR. Kids Helmet - indigo matt

Just like its big brother: the Carapax JR. is inspired by the model for adults and thus promises optimum off-road protection for all junior mountain bikers. The low weight, maximum head coverage and a long list of features give it an optimum price/performance ratio. The low weight is due to the inmold production, in which the upper shell is thermally bonded to the Hi-EPS. This results in a firm surface connection, which is responsible for a very stable construction. The lower edge of the helmet is protected by the additional polycarbonate shell Edge Protect. In addition, the rear and the temple area are pulled further down for maximum safety on rough trails. This creates even greater head coverage. Large ventilation openings ensure optimum ventilation, fly screens keep insects away from the head and the shield guarantees additional protection in the field of vision. With the Run System Classic, which is combined with the height-adjustable Custom Fit, the bike helmet can be adjusted to fit the head. The Carapax JR. can be optionally retrofitted with the Multi-Fit Light rear light for improved visibility.

Features of the Alpina Carapax JR. children's helmet:

  • Low weight thanks to inmold production, in which the upper shell is thermally bonded to the Hi-EPS
  • The rear and the temple area are lowered for optimum protection off-road
  • The lower edge of the helmet is protected by the additional polycarbonate shell Edge Protect
  • Optimum visibility thanks to the optional Multi-Fit Light
  • Grilles in the front ventilation openings keep insects away from the head



One factor that has a major influence on wearing comfort is the ventilation of the helmet. The strategically sensible arrangement of the ventilation openings is crucial for optimum ventilation of the interior. The air is directed into the interior, where it is guided along the head and can flow out again at the rear. The head is therefore always pleasantly air-conditioned.


All Alpina helmets manufactured using the inmold process have a robust Ceramic Shell. In this process, a polycarbonate plate is stretched under high heat to the shape of the future helmet and pressed onto the Hi-EPS body under high pressure and thermally bonded to it. The Ceramic Shell is characterized by several qualities: It is break- and scratch-resistant, UV-stable and antistatic.


Costum Fit is an adjustment system at the back of the head that can be used to adjust the height of the Run System in several stages. This allows the optimum fit of the helmet to be adjusted for a wide variety of head shapes. Pressure points are a thing of the past, the helmet fits perfectly and safety is increased.


Edge Protect is an additional polycarbonate plate that enhances Inmold helmets. It covers the edges on the underside of the helmet. This protects the Hi-EPS and increases the durability of the helmet.


Proven hundreds of thousands of times over and used on all Alpina helmets: the belt buckle with the red push button and multi-stage automatic latching mechanism. Ergomatic can be operated with one hand - uphill you can loosen the strap, downhill you can tighten it - and in the event of a fall it is not possible for the locking mechanism to open by itself.


The inner shell of all Alpina helmets is made of Hi-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrol). The material has microscopically small air chambers that absorb the forces acting on the helmet in the event of an impact. Hi-EPS ensures optimum protection and at the same time enables extra-thin wall thicknesses and narrow helmet shapes.


In the Inmold production process, the polycarbonate upper shell of the helmet is thermally bonded to the Hi-EPS inner shell of the helmet body under high heat and pressure. This creates a large and inseparable bond between the upper and lower shells. Advantage: The helmet is very light and extremely stable at the same time.


The Run System allows the size of all Alpina helmets to be individually adjusted using a smooth-running dial. The Run System Classic scores with its price/performance ratio. It is a simple and robust adjustment wheel that holds the helmet securely and easily where it belongs: on the head.


A helmet can only provide the best possible protection if it remains in the optimum position in the event of an impact. The adjustment and fixation of the two straps under the ear plays a decisive role in this. The Y-clip system guarantees millimeter-precise adjustment - in a matter of seconds.
