The audio and technology capabilities of the Explore1 are certainly something to shout about. But that doesn’t mean we’ve compromised on safety. To us, protecting your head is paramount.
We’ve partnered with some of the world’s leading experts, building a number of innovative safety features into our helmets as standard. The Explore1 is designed to meet a host of global safety standards including ASTM, EN1077 and EN1078. To some that’s just a load of letters and numbers, to me and you it means one thing – we put safety first.
Major brain injuries are often caused by a strong rotation of the head on impact. That’s why every helmet we make incorporates MIPS technology. Developed by scientists and brain surgeons, the technology reduces rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head.
We’ve also teamed up with global avalanche recovery specialists RECCO to put an avalanche reflector chip into all of our helmets, meaning if you did need it, rescue teams can quickly locate you.
No more freezing your fingers to fasten and unfasten your helmet. The Explore1 includes a dual-function FIDLOCK magnetic strap – designed with a high locking force for maximum protection which you can also open easily with a single gloved hand.
