X-TEN COLLECTIVE STAFF COMMENTS
This helmet is a two-piece construction which means its super durable but still lightweight, and it comes with a soft plush liner and adjustable BOA dial to get the right fit. It is a peaked helmet so the peak helps to block the sun when riding but it can also protect your goggles if you were to have a crash. The liner can also be swapped out for a summer liner for biking or kayaking.
SHELL: Lightweight two-piece ABS/EPS*
LINER: Super soft removable liner
FIT SYSTEM: BOA* dial fit system for the perfect fit
BUCKLE: Standard buckle
*What is EPS?
EPS is lightweight, effective across a wide range of temperatures and conditions and highly effective at reducing the amount of energy transferred to your head during an impact. EPS accomplishes that energy reduction by collapsing during the impact, converting some of the energy into heat and slowing the transmission of energy. A key advantage of EPS is the reliability of the moulded part to deal with impact energy over a wide range of conditions
*What is ABS?
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a thermoplastic that is widely used in helmets. From a performance standpoint, ABS has high impact resistance, functions well in cold weather and is, simply put, tough and durable.
**What is BOA
BOA system is a patented dial that tightens and loosens cord or stainless steel cables. This system is used in a array of sporting applications from helmets to shoes to ski/snowboard boots.
