The peak of Piz Zupò 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:- Durable outer shell thanks to the 3 shell construction- Easy-to-operate belt buckle with a twist-proof, multi-step automatic buckle- Hardshell guarantees a robust and impact-resistant outer shell- Optimal shock absorption due to small air chambers- Adjustable straps by earsSpecifications:- Weight: 508 Gram- Area of application: allmountain, piste, skiing, snowboardTechnologies:Ceramic Shell:- All Alpina helmets manufactured using the inmold process are fitted with a robust ceramic shell. A polycarbonate plate is stretched under intense heat onto the shape of the helmet in the making and pressed onto the Hi-EPS body under high pressure and thermally bonded to it. The Ceramic shell is characterized by several qualities: It is impact- and scratch-resistant, UV-stable and antistatic.Ergomatic:- Proven a hundred thousand times over and used on all Alpina helmets: the strap buckle with the red push button and multi-step automatic locking mechanism. Ergomatic can be operated with one hand - you can loosen the strap on the way up the mountain and tighten it for downhill - and in a fall the locking mechanism cannot open automatically.Hard shell:- Hardshell helmets consist of a Hi-EPS core and an impact-resistant outer shell made of ABS or polycarbonate. This combination ensures maximum safety.Hi-EPS:- The inner shell of all Alpina helmets is made of Hi-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). The material has microscopically small air chambers that absorb the forces acting on the helmet in the event of an impact. Hi-EPS provides optimum protection and at the same time allows for extra-thin helmet wall as well as narrow helmet shapes.Run System Ergo Snow:- The Run System enables all Alpina helmets to adjust to a custom size by using an easy-to-move dial. Alpina relies on the tried-and-tested Run System Classic for its ski helmets, a flexible head adjustment system with a central dial. A twist mechanism allows the headband to be adjusted more loosely or more tightly. The large dial is equipped with a non-slip two-component mix and can be operated perfectly with ski gloves.Venting System:- Air vents ensure optimum air conditioning, air circulation and effectively prevent heat accumulation inside the helmet.Y-Clip:- A helmet can only provide the best possible protection if it remains in the optimum position in the event of an impact. The adjustment and fixing of the two straps under the ear plays a decisive role. The Y-clip system ensures a millimetre-accurate adjustment - in a matter of seconds.
