Product Description :

Shell construction utilizes a highly advanced molding technology with a multi-composite combination: uni-directional carbon composite with aramid layer that gives significant radial strength around the shell, preventing compression but allowing controlled deflection for reducing transmitted impact energy, and providing critical penetration protection

This combination of layers is given even greater performance with an epoxy resin bonding that offers the best possible strength and energy management; limited outer shell deflection means the energy spreads wider and is better absorbed by the EPS liner

The Supertech M8 liner construction combines with the shell to offer highly efficient impact energy management

Formed with a multi-density EPS polymer, the energy absorbing layer gives an inner helmet profile which soaks up forces dissipated over the outer shell at the point of an impact and provides a shape offering a close and comfortable fit

Four section liner construction allows for specific densities of polymer to be prepared for different zones around the helmet lining improving energy performance, comfort and fit

A-Head fitting height and angle adjustment system

Incorporates a system to allow the helmet to be tuned exactly to the rider’s preference for the height and angle at which the helmet sits on the head allowing for ultra-specific set-up that can be adapted for the type of riding and the rider’s preference

Raise and lower helmet fit and tilt with micro-adjustable pad

Visor release system ensuring the mounting is held securely in place for riding over extreme terrain and any track conditions

Visor release system provides the right level of resistance to ensure the visor detaches from the helmet shell if it is subjected to a significant impact regardless of angle

The Supertech M8 visor release mechanism is conceived to avoid the inherent weaknesses in other types of anchoring systems

Maintaining shell integrity is vital for safety and with the possibility of multi-directional forces impacting on the visor, separation at the critical point of leading reduces potentially damaging leverage and rotational accelerations that refer injury to the rider’s neck and spine

The base of the Supertech M8 helmet has been sculpted to give a relief section, where the bottom profile is raised to clear the collarbone (clavicle)

Energy absorption pad incorporated into the area of the base pad where it sits over the rider’s collarbone

Energy absorption pad consists of a more flexible compound rubber section which allows deflection when it contacts the clavicle

Polypropylene chinbar allows for a degree of lateral deflection, further improving impact protection for the collarbones

Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS®) incorporated to reduce rotational motion energies that impact the helmet causing damaging gyration force to be transmitted to the brain

A low friction ‘slip’ layer is incorporated into the Supertech M8 helmet, between the comfort padding layer and the multi-density polymer energy absorption shell. When energy is impacted upon the helmet, causing a rotation force, the MIPS layer allows for movement of the inner absorption layer to damp and re-direct the energy before causing significant acceleration stress to the brain. This mitigates the causes of brain injuries, such as concussion

Emergency Release System (ERS)

While the helmet is still on the rider’s head, the side cheek padding can be extracted efficiently and safely to allow ease of removal by trackside support and medical staff

The Supertech M8 is also designed to allow a helmet ‘Eject’ inflation system to be fitted into the inside crown of the shell

Along with the ERS padding removal, ‘Eject’ allows for emergency removal of the helmet, without putting load on the rider’s spine

Chin-strap: Wider than certification requirement: 26 mm for comfort and produced with a woven poly yarn to give a soft ‘hand’ feel that connects securely with a double D-ring

The material selection, preparation and construction of the helmet has been rigorously analyzed for weight to strength and energy absorption properties and a strict analysis of all the components used in the Supertech M8 finishing

Heat mapping tests have resulted in specifically designed ducting which produces a positive flow into the helmet over and around the rider’s head, improving comfort while riding and reducing the on-set of heat stress in extreme conditions

Visor design profiled to direct airflow, acting as a channel to concentrate and smooth the flow into the shell

Liner formed to optimize airflow channeling around the rider’s head before being extracted through rear exhaust vents to ensure positive pressure is maintained with constant airflow while riding

Lining design includes canals which allow a tube to be incorporated on either side of the shell allowing for hydration system compatibility

Removable liner cover is washable and features a cool-max fabric interior and anti-bacterial talent yarn for long-lasting freshness and quick-dry performance between riding sessions

Features TPE coating washable surfaces to improve maintenance and increase durability

Includes soft bag
