KAV PolyCarbon Composite™
No single material could create the 10x helmet we demanded and you deserved. So we developed a proprietary polymer blend which provides strength and superior energy absorption engineered for helmets. The material trinity results in the holy grail of 3D bike helmet materials.
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.
Cold Temperature Performance
For the hardiest amongst us, we've designed our helmets to work in temperatures as low as -30C. Foam stiffens at lower temperatures sending more impact force to your head. Our PolyCarbon Composite™ stays compliant and performs as well when you can see your breath as when you're sweating up that climb.
Speaking of which, our PolyCarbon Composite™ stays cool because unlike foam, it's not an insulator that traps heat.
