The outer shell has been redesigned with a new look and better ventilation, acquiring streamlined air vents, a new easy-to-use goggle headband fixing and a peak at the front for a sporty look. New in 2016: The Grap 2.0 LE, that'll win over everyone with its elaborate material mix both on the outside and on the inside. Its comfort will set new standards.
Inmold ski helmets by Alpina are very light as well as extremely sturdy. This is achieved by a production process in which the helmet’s polycarbonate upper shell is fused with the EPS granulate under high heat and pressure. The result is an inseparable bond between the upper and lower shells across a large area.
This impact- and scratch-resistant polycarbonate shell is fitted to all Alpina helmets manufactured using the Inmold procedure. The blank work pieces are shaped at high temperature onto the form of the helmet design and the shells are then pressed onto the helmet‘s Hi-EPS body. The material combines a number of distinct advantages: it is impact and scratch-resistant, it contains UV stabilisers and is anti-static.
The inner shell of every Alpina helmet consists of HI-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). These microscopic air pockets absorb the forces that act in an impact and provide the protective damping. HI-EPS allows extra-thin wall thicknesses and slim helmet shapes to be achieved. As HI-EPS absorbs neither water nor perspiration the protective effect is retained for a long time.
An extremely Impact- and scratch-resistant layer applied to the bottom edge of the helmet. It enhances safety oin the event of a side Impact and pretects the EPS against damage.
The classic for optimal fit: Thanks to the control knob at the back of the head the helmet can be adjusted to the head in a flash and will reliably remain where it belongs.
Proven a hundred-thousand-fold and used in all Alpina ski helmets: Our famous strap buckle with a red push button and multi-step automatic locking mechanism. Ergomatic can be operated when wearing ski gloves – the strap can be loosened while using the ski lift and tightened again before the downhill run – and is prevented from opening on its own in a crash.
A helmet can only protect the wearer as effectively as it stays in its optimal position in case of a fall. The retention of the two under-ear straps plays a crucial part in this. Alpinas “Y-Clip” system guarantees optimal adjustment with millimeter-accuracy – easily and in a matter of seconds.
Further airstream regulation features the Airstream Control Ventilation openings of the helmet can be opened and closed by a sliding mechanism. Perfect climate around your head is guaranteed.
Freecarve or freeride bonanzas can be sweat-inducing affairs! Especially the head acts as a veritable “heat exchanger.” That’s why Alpina ski helmets equipped with Changeable Interior allow you to quickly remove the interior lining, handwash it in tepid soap water, let it dry and simply insert it again.
The Removable Earpads can be detached in fractions of a second and stowed in the pockets of a ski jacket. When enjoying the snow on a warm and sunny Easter weekend, this feature will allow you to experience an even higher degree of freedom during your ride. And when temperatures drop again, just click the earpads back on.
The Alpina Neckwarmer is pulled down low at the back of the helmet and consists of a comfortable, soft micro-fleece material. This “heat collar” also prevents the neck from being hit by air draft at high speed and Siberian temperatures. Thanks to its clever construction there are no pressure points.
