After creating the lightest helmet in the world, we have never stopped our development to push the envelope of safety and performance to its limits.
In collaboration with the Astana Pro Cycling Team we explored the aerodynamic limitations at the wind tunnel in Magny Cours to take our research and development even further.
Since the hardest goals to achieve are always the most rewarding.
Our story step by step…
