The Metolius Safe Tech Helmet
Beyond Hope, Sep 2010
Living up to the “Safer by Design” philosophy, Metolius have produced the Safe Tech helmet for maximum protection.
Traditionally, helmets have only offered protection from falling objects, despite the fact that 80% of head injuries are sustained by falling. The Safe Tech helmet has been designed to address this issue, by offering extended protection at the sides, back and front of the head.
The full EPS liner maintains thickness around the side of the head, and is then fully covered by a hard ABS shell. The soft cradle design avoids sharp edges against the head, and simple to set buckle design avoids using a bulky thumbwheel adjuster.
Coming Soon - available in the UK in December 2010.
