That awkward, clingy feeling of helmet-hair in the making, courtesy of a heavy, stuffy helmet? Pretty bad. Getting a concussion from a nasty spill because you decided not to wear one? Way worse.
Harsh knows that while discomfort is no reason not to wear a helmet, it can be both annoying and distracting. Their fix for this is the HX1.
Traditional shock-absorbing liners are made separate from the helmet itself, and glued to the inside of a plastic shell. Harsh’s ‘Overmold’ foam machining process binds the EPS foam liner directly to the injection-molded ABS outer shell. This allows the HX1 to be 50% lighter than your average helmet, and still meet ASTM/CE/CPSC safety standards.
Angled, omnidirectional vents and airy, sweat-absorbing foam padding help keep your head cool and dry. The pads are removable too, so you can throw ‘em in the washing machine and keep them fresh.
The HX1 comes in a range of sizes from XS to M, and features a riveted, fully adjustable chin strap for a firm and comfortable fit at any size. It’s available from the online store in 5 colour options.
