This weight reduction was achieved by using Curv® material instead of the classic ABS shell. Curv® is the latest generation of an extremely high-performance thermoplastic material. It has similar properties to fiber-reinforced composites such as carbon: good stiffness, high tensile strength, and exceptionally high impact resistance - all at a very low weight.
Curv® is an outstanding material that combines the versatility of a 100% thermoplastic with the high performance of a fiber-reinforced composite. Parts manufactured with Curv® exhibit high stiffness, high tensile strength and excellent impact resistance. At the same time, they are extremely lightweight and can be thermoplastically molded. We are taking advantage of these outstanding properties in our new helmet shell, where minimum weight and maximum protection are key.
