Due to the ability of transition from soft to hard when needed and the extreme shock absorption properties, you no longer have to choose between freedom of movement and proper protection.

The Trabec Race in-mold helmet for single track and enduro, is developed to provide the highest possible degree of protection without compromising functionality or performance. The construction is borrowed from how a skeleton is built for resistance and durability. The Aramid filament reinforced EPS core is tough and the outer PC shell is optimized with no seams at the most exposed areas. An aerodynamic channel system and 16 vent holes provides good ventilation. Compared to a traditional helmet, which sits on top rather than around your head, Trabec fits more like a skateboard helmet. The Trabec Race model has extra aramid reinforcements. Sizes: XS–S, M–L & XL–XXL.
