Wrap Your Skull in Carbon Fiber

[Via Cool Hunting]

“For extreme sports enthusiasts in search of the utmost protection year-round, Bern recently developed a carbon fiber version of their stylish Macon, Baker and Watts styles. Taking advantage of the high-tech material, the extremely lightweight carbon shell withstands powerful punches.

The matte carbon models are available either as an EPS-certified helmet (the standard protection level for action sports) or as a Hard Hat—an ultra-ventilated helmet that uses resilient Brock foam technology to survive multiple impacts. Bern offers appropriate sizes for men and women, and their simple snap-in upgrade system easily transitions helmets from summer to winter sports.

The new shells sell from Bern’s online shop or outdoor sports stores worldwide for about $215.”

    “The matte carbon models are available either as an EPS-certified helmet (the standard protection level for action sports) or as a Hard Hat—an ultra-ventilated helmet that uses resilient Brock foam technology to survive multiple impacts.”

    “Hard hat” means that literally, no rated protection. The Brock foam has no certification of level of protection. the foam will survive multiple impacts, the carbon fiber will as well, but the wearer is going to have a very hurt brain.

    ultra ventilated, carbon fiber, no protection, hat, that looks like a helmet.
