- Shell uses composite fusion to bonds EPS foam to polycarbonate shell.
- Polycarbonate wrap extends around edge for increased protection from all angles.
- Breakaway visor.
- Includes a winter/bug liner for all-season use.

Most helmets are tested and certified for a specific sport. Some helmets are approved for multi-sports, but only after passing the safety tests for both sports (i.e., snowsports and cycling).
Cetification is established by a variety of governing bodies who set impact standards. Most helmets are certified or approved for a specific sport, except in the case of multi-sport helmets (i.e., a snowsports helmet might also be approved for cycling if it meets the cycling safety standards).
