DESCRIPTION
  • Shell construction utilizes a highly advanced molding technology with a multi-composite combination: uni-directional carbon composite with an 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 that 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 an ultra-specific set-up that can be adapted for the type of riding and the rider’s preference
  • Raise and lower the helmet fit and tilt with a micro-adjustable pad
  • Visor release system ensuring the mounting is held securely in place for riding over extreme terrain and any track conditions
  • The 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 the 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 the visor, separation at the critical point of loading reduces potentially damaging leverage and rotational accelerations that refer to 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)
  • The energy absorption pad is incorporated into the area of the base pad where it sits over the rider’s collarbone
  • The energy absorption pad consists of a more flexible compound rubber section which allows deflection when it contacts the clavicle
  • Polypropylene chin bar 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 a 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 have 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 that allow a tube to be incorporated on either side of the shell allowing for hydration system compatibility
  • The 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
