High performance Raid is a racing helmet developed together with theSwedish Alpine Ski Team. The helmet is designed to pass the new FIS standard and meet the high security demands of the worlds best downhill skiers. Raid is an uncompromising helmet that operates with different materials in a unique way to provide maximum security for the rider. The Shell material is made out of ABS for high impact resistance. The helmet also features advanced EPS core material to distribute and absorb the energy in a comfortable way.
Besides all security matters, Bliz Raid helmet has many details and features like; Quick Release Ear Pads, removable and changeable Neck Pad and an extra padding kit for perfect optimization.
The helmet is considered a Class A helmet and meets the standard EN 1077.
AIRFLOW VENTILATION SYSTEM Bliz Airflow Ventilation System was developed using low and high speed fluid dynamics studies to deliver the ideal airflow rates both within and around the helmet at every speed. The result is a helmet with air channels that delivers pleasant and effective ventilation that further enhances safety.
EPP CORE MATERIAL Bliz Raid has been equipped with a unique EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) core to provide better protection in a crash. EPP is a stronger material than the more common complete EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) core since it is not as easily permanently compressed in a crash. The Raids EPP core gives you a better and more long-term protection.
EPS REINFORCEMENT The Bliz Raid helmet enhances the safety of its EPP core with focused EPS side inlays. EPS (Expanded Polystyrene), has great shock-absorbing properties and is a common and proven material in helmets. The majority of helmet impacts in crashes occur from the side, which means that the helmet sides become more vulnerable to shocks. Raid EPP core has been reinforced and enhanced with the EPS side inlays to enhance its protective capabilities.
REMOVABLE NECKPAD Raid has a removable neck pad in two interchangeable sizes on the back of the helmet for extra support, protection and custom fit.
EMERGENCY QUICK RELEASE SYSTEM Bliz Raid puts safety first. The helmet has therefore been fitted with Emergency Quick Release System. A reliable, fast and easy way to detach the ear pads from the helmet to reduce pressure on the skier's head and neck, if an accident should occur.
ABS SHELL Raid 's ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) shell delivers high impact resistance and cold weather tolerance.
