KAV PolyCarbon Composite™
Rather than use the industry-standard EPS foam, our team has developed a proprietary KAV PolyCarbon Composite™. Constructed from polycarbonate with a propriety polymer blend which provides strength, superior energy absorption and naturally wicks heat 8x better than EPS foam even in the most extreme conditions.
To achieve the highest energy absorption to weight ratio we turned to a proprietary polymer blend as our base material. Our polycarbonate is resistant to chemicals, UV stable and durable. We couple that with our Hex Honeycomb Structure™ creating a helmet that's 95% air, but 100% protection.
3D printing enables us to create a crumple zone that can compress almost 3x more than traditional helmets. This structure allows the helmet to shear when needed or compress when needed based on the impact eliminating the need for both MIPS or an extra layer.
Open Cell Ventilation: Cooling Channel System
The KAV PolyCarbon Composite™ material naturally wicks heat 8x better + cools 2x faster than EPS foam and our Hex Honeycomb Structure™ provides an open cell interior facilitating passive ventilation and temperature regulation.
