Technically advanced helmet in a stylish and comfortable design. The outer shell of the Samshield Alcantara Helmet is made of polycarbonate, which is a material used, among other things, for high-end motorcycle helmets. It is covered with genuine Alcantara. The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density providing a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact. The air flow is designed to channel fresh air into the channels to cool the rider. Equipped with a front air inlet, the Alcantara helmet provides exceptional ventilation. Fresh air is channeled from the front entrance to the back extractors around comfort foam which prevents from sweating. This concept generates a strong internal airflow avoiding the need for visible and unsightly air inlets: the equestrian elegance is retained without banishing technicality and comfort.
The internal comfort foam ensures a constant thickness over the years of use and the semi-rigid jugular cancel all risks of tipping the helmet in case of a violent movement. This internal comfort foam is removable thanks to a much stronger clip system than the scratch/Velcro system. It can therefore be washed at will in order to constantly be able to wear a clean and fragrant helmet. A thorough anthropomorphic study led to design an inner-shell form generating an unmatched comfort. 3 shell sizes are available (S, M, L). Each shell can accommodate 5 to 6 inner foams of different sizes in order to obtain a perfect adjustment to the rider's head. There are some sizes that overlap the shells as well. The size grid is available from 52 to 64. With this system, it is also possible to follow the growth of a young rider.
This Helmet is made with the dressage chin strap which allows women to wear their hair in a bun without being constrained by the harness of the helmet. This chin strap is shorter by 2.5 cm in order to allow more room for the hair bun.
