Designed for long days, the retention system provides a locked in fit that keeps the helmet slightly suspended for a lightweight and natural feel. Unique padding offers exceptional moisture management, while the Kevlar straps won't stick to your sweaty skin. Increased coverage in the sides and rear combine with an impact dissipating skeletal shell for total protection in case of the worse.
- Homothetic Embedded Skeleton (HES) disperses pressure across the shell in case of impact.
- Dial adjustment system provides a nuanced fit.
- Safe-T Advanced retention system suspends helmet slightly from head for a lightweight feel.
- GEL O2 padding won't overheat or absorb sweat during long days.

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).
