ANATOMY OF A MOTORCYCLE HELMET
ABS COMPOSITE SHELL
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is an advanced
high impact polymer. It is fast becoming the preferred
material for helmets because it better withstands
environmental conditions. ABS is less rigid than fiberglass
giving it better shock absorption. It is also a more
versatile material that can be injection molded into more
DUAL DENSITY EPS LINER
The soft but firm layer of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
just beneath the fabric inner liner. This layer absorbs most
of the energy in a crash and also provides channels to
direct airflow inside the helmet.
Equipped with rapid-release buckles that can quickly
and easily be fastened and unfastened with one hand.
Spyder’s new design eliminates the need to re-adjust the
strap every time the helmet is worn. Selected models are
equipped with Double D retention strap for safer design
required in most professional racing.
REMOVABLE AND WASHABLE LINING
Stay comfortably cool as Spyder’s ultra-absorbent,
quick-dry inner liners wicks moisture away from your
head and into the interior of the helmet, where the
ventilation system blows it dry. These washable /
replaceable liners can be removed easily, and dries faster
than other polyester lines.
Full functional intake and exhaust ventilation ports are
strategically positioned to maintain a comfortable
temperature inside the helmet by dissipating heat and
moisture from the inner liner. Vent hoods allow the ports
to be open or shut when needed.
POLYCARBONATE SCRATCH RESISTANT VISOR
Polycarbonate lenses are thinner and lighter than
traditional plastic helmet lenses. They also offer 100 percent
ultraviolet (UV) protection and are up to 10 times
more impact-resistant than regular plastic lenses.
Polycarbonate was developed for aerospace
applications, and is also currently used for the helmet
lenses of astronauts and for space shuttle windshields.
