Description

Show Description

An aggressive profile to suit long cross-country riding. The Veleno offers significant protection at negligible weight. The Safe-T occipital retention systems encircles your whole head, so it doesn't push only at the back and front. In the event of a crash, it allows the helmet to rotate very slightly to absorb energy and reduce the risk of injury. Super-fine increments on the adjustment wheel bring a new level of bespoke to the fit.

  • Made of a polystyrene inner moulded to a polycarbonate shell.
  • Lateral dividers position the straps correctly and keep them in place.
  • Kevlar straps are strong and breathable.
  • Removable visor is tapered for aerodynamic efficiency.
  • Retention system dial offers horizontal and vertical adjustments to tune the fit to your head.
  • Coolmax anti-allergenic interior pads manage moisture and can be washed by hand.
  • Front gel pad ensures a dry and comfortable ride.
  • Reflective rear stickers.
