Composition of your Premium riding helmet
The outer shell
The outer shell of your Antarès riding helmet is made of ABS. Its purpose is to disperse the energy from an impact over the helmet’s surface. When your helmet strikes an object, the shell distributes the shock wave by spreading it out.
The helmet liner
The liner is made from EPS (expanded polystyrene). It absorbs the energy by compressing on impact. As a result, the liner becomes far denser and cannot absorb the force a second time as it is ‘single-impact‘. To observe the consequences of a shock on the helmet liner.
Its 4 front vents and 2 rear extractors provide good air circulation. Thermal regulation is therefore improved.
The retention system
This ensures your helmet fits securely on your head and stops any rotation. The harness has 3 or 4 points. These points correspond to the number of fastenings on your helmet. Accordingly, all Antarès riding helmets have 3-point harnesses. The Y-shaped fastening system has more widely spaced points to reduce any helmet rotation. What’s more, our helmets have nylon straps and POM buckles (a plastic compound).
A little extra: Antares chinstraps are made of leather from the offcuts of our custom saddles. Aesthetic and responsible!
In contact with the rider's head, the high quality foams allow a perfect fit of your riding helmet and an optimal comfort. Whether your head shape is round or oval, they will complement your body shape. Removable, these internal pads can be regularly removed and cleaned to maintain cleanliness. Made in Italy, they are breathable, OEKO-TEX® certified and hand washable in warm water.
The European standard EN1384-2017 requires the visor to bend when a load is applied to it. This is to prevent it from breaking and injuring the rider. The visor of Antares helmets is therefore deliberately flexible. In case of deformation, it can be manipulated manually to restore its original shape.
