The peak of Piz Zupo is located on the border between Switzerland and Italy. The ZUPO from ALPINA also pushes boundaries. Hard on the outside, super soft on the inside. The children’s hardshell helmet, as the name implies, has a hard shell that provides protection in the event of impact. At the same time, the impact-absorbing EPS inside the helmet also protects the shell. This keeps the helmet protected from damage even during transport, such as on the ski shuttle. Soft ears, a comfortable and removable inside cushion and a warming neck protector provide maximum comfort. If the helmet gets too hot on warm ski days, fresh air can be supplied to it through an intelligent ventilation system. The technical look, the high-quality matt lacquer and the hardshell construction make the ZUPO a unique children’s ski helmet: stylish and safe.Features: - Stylish kids hard shell helmet with ear covers- Professional look with high-quality matt lacquering- Comfort with the smart Venting System and Neck Warmer PlusTechnology:Ceramic Shell: - All Alpina helmets manufactured using the inmold process are fitted with a robust ceramic shell.
