THE GOLD STANDARD OF FULL FACE HELMETS
EPS shell with
integrated air channels
Brain protection should be a helmet’s primary mission. The EPS inner-shell was designed to dissipate the force of an impact by using the best balanced density of material to improve the weight/volume ratio and prevent the brain from hitting the skull in the event of an accident.
It also has an integrated network of channels which circulates air from external intake vents around the inside of the helmet.
Higher loads, higher speeds, more impacts, in a more dynamic test setup - ASTM exceeds CE, AS and CPSC standard for bicycle helmets in every way.
ASTM is also the only standard testing the safety of the chin guard. We use the most stringent standard there is, to give you peace of mind wearing our new BRAVE with D3O® in BMX or Downhill races where you need the best protection possible.
SEE STANDARDS COMPARISON
The BLUEGRASS BRAVE is the first helmet on the market using D3O® inserts which enables the helmet to withstand double the number of impacts compared to a normal composite construction, over different areas of the shell.
The inserts are made from the orange-coloured D3O® patented technology which is soft and flexible with high shock absorbing properties. In standard conditions, the material’s molecules flow freely but under impact lock together to absorb and dissipate impact energy.
V.I.D. composite construction
Our Research and Development team has designed its own IT software called Virtual Impact Data which enables us to test our helmets virtually even before building a fisical model.
AVAILABLE IN 3 SHELL SIZES
Compare that with other brands. 3 different shell sizes ensure that the exterior helmet volume is in proportion to your head size.
Chin guard with integrated Airflow_2_Chin air inflow vents.
Professional riders who helped to develop the Brave helmets insisted from the outset on how important it is to have air vents on the chin guard as good respiration is essential for high-performance.
We listened and went on to create the most ventilated chin guard on the market. Its design was also dictated by our search to find the best ratio between maximal protection and minimum bulk.
MX-style visor with two-point attachment. Allows super fine tuning of the visor position.
Attached using aluminium screws. The visor naturally seats at the point of maximum air pressure on the helmet.
The visor of the Brave is designed to provide the minimum drag. Easy to use with goggles. Gives maximum field of vision.
MOPOV video support kit
Now anyone can film themselves while riding. To help you we have designed the MOPOV kit which allows you to fit your onboard camera onto your helmet in a flash.
Removable kit fitted on the side of the helmet. Light weight. System suitable for multiple brands. Nothing remains on the helmet after use. The self-adhesive fitting on your camera fixes to the MOPOV and not to the helmet itself.
One of the many advantages of this system is that the strap can be adjusted perfectly and won’t need to be unfastened as is the case with an automatic buckle (also known as quick release buckles).
By simply sliding the strap along, you can either take off the helmet or just wear it loosely without having to undo the buckle.
EJECT BAG / goggle / neck-brace compatible
The EJECT bag can be easy inflated inside the top shell to help the removal of the helmet and
to reduce the damage to the spine.
Moulded ribs on the shell help keep the goggle strap in place.
Everything has been thought out so as to optimize the fit of the helmet goggle and helmet neck-brace.
Compatible with most of the models available.
