30 The Primo C is an advanced fiberglass helmet with integrated interal shock absorbers (Conehead Technology) and optimum comfort features. What is conehead? Conehead is the developmental codename for a revolutionary new way to mold EPS foam for helmets. Examine the cutaway illustration of a conehead liner and you can see two different colors of foam in the cross-section. These are much more than just two colors. They are also two different densities of foam as well as two different foams with their own characteristics of recovery from impact and inter-foam bond strength. Also note that one of the two foams is molded as a series of cones. The second foam is over-molded on and around the small cones to fill out the shape of the helmet liner. These cones act similarly to the cone-shaped traffic impact barriers found on highways. Highway barriers are meant to reduce the severity of vehicle impacts with vertical freeway structures and large towers supporting roadway signage. Each cone offers increasing resistance and energy absorbtion as the impact hazard collapses the energy management material. In the case of a helmet, that energy management is the job of the EPS liner. Conehead’s secondary benefit comes from the two different foams, molded in two different densities. This molding arrangement allows us to place very low density foam on the inside of the liner, against the users head. Recent research has demonstrated that the level of impact that can result in concussion may be much lower than previously estimated. This low density foam reacts to much lower impacts and thereby offers increased protection from routine bumping that goes on in the course of sport. Conehead is a licensed technology. It is being used in helmets that successfully passed DOT, ECE, and Snell M2015 standards. • Shell made from advanced composite fiberglass. • Multi-element internal shock-absorber with differentiated density. • Communication ready. • Air flow directed by integrated ducts. • Rear air extractors Venturi-effect. • Comfort padding hydrostatic, anti-bacterial treated interior, removable and washable. • Chin strap mechanism quick release. • External high safety anti-scratch visor. • Quick release visor fastening system. • Net weight : 1600 g +/- 50 g • Meets or exceeds D.O.T. and SNELL M2015 standards Matte Black Glossy Black (SOLID) (SOLID) (SOLID) (ULTIMA) (ULTIMA) (ULTIMA) Glossy Black Matte Black Red Blue Dark Silver XS Z88-30301 Z88-30311 88-32792 88-32802 88-32812 S Z88-30302 Z88-30312 88-32793 88-32803 88-32813 M Z88-30303 Z88-30313 88-32794 88-32804 88-32814 L Z88-30304 Z88-30314 88-32795 88-32805 88-32815 XL Z88-30305 Z88-30315 88-32796 88-32806 88-32816 $169.99 $169.99 $189.99 $189.99 $189.99 Red Blue Dark Silver (ULTIMA) Top Back PRIMO C FULL FACE HELMET
