Push yourself to the max on every slope, whatever the conditions.


Armoring® System

Armoring® System:
Safety takes on a brand-new shape

An exclusive ABS multi-impact ring guarantees shock absorption in the areas that are most sensitive and susceptible to impact in the event of a fall. Its elasticated construction dissipates the energy of the shock over the whole area, always returning to its original shape. The Nucleo design follows the shape of the Armoring®. In other words, the helmet is specifically designed around the protective element.

Channeled ventilation

Channeled ventilation for all weather conditions

Air vents are positioned on the front of the helmet where there is greatest pressure, channeling air inside the helmet through special ducts and in turn drawing excess humidity and heat out of the helmet. This active ventilation system prevents snow or water from coming into contact with the skier's head, even during the harshest of weather conditions. The setup you need to push yourself to the next level in all situations.
