ALPINA LAVARDA: this is the name of the new ALPINA touring helmet inspired by the river Vardar. It offers you 100% safety every second. And much more. Maximum protection, the best possible comfort and optimum ventilation - these are the criteria that a high-quality touring helmet must meet.
The LAVARDA offers you all of this. Wide ventilation openings from the front to the rear guarantee ideal climate management. At the same time, fly screens in the front openings prevent insects from reaching your head. The shield is integrated into the design of the helmet and directs cooling air inside like a funnel. It also offers the best possible protection in the field of vision. Since it is removable, the range of use of the helmet becomes even wider.
The fit of the ALPINA LAVARDA is ideal for slim heads. Thanks to the soft padding the helmet fits comfortably. The Ergo Pro Run System, which is combined with the height-adjustable Custom Fit System, enables perfect adaptation to the shape of the head. The low weight also ensures optimum wearing comfort. This is achieved by Inmold production, in which the upper shell is thermally connected to the Hi-EPS. This results in a firm surface connection, which is responsible for a very stable construction.
No matter how far the distance is, no matter how hard the track is on you - on your next tour you will have one less problem. When you have the new ALPINA LAVARDA on your head.
Run System Ergo Plus
The Run System allows the size of all Alpina helmets to be individually adjusted using a smooth-running rotating wheel. The high-quality Run System Ergo+ has two large wing-shaped headrests, which ensure high wearing comfort. The difference to the Run System Ergo Pro: the headrests are not rubberized.
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 fixation of the two straps under the ear plays a decisive role. The Y-Clip system guarantees millimetre-precise adjustment - in a matter of seconds.
Proven hundreds of thousands of times and used on all Alpina helmets: the belt buckle with the red push button and multi-stage automatic snap-in mechanism. Ergomatic can be operated with one hand - you can loosen the strap uphill, tighten it downhill - and in the event of a fall it is not possible for the locking mechanism to open automatically.
Edge Protect is an additional polycarbonate sheet that refines Inmold helmets. It covers edges on the underside of the helmet. This protects the Hi-EPS and increases the longevity of the helmet. At the same time, the neck and shoulder area of the rider is protected against injuries from the helmet in the event of an impact and contact with the lower edge of the helmet.
One factor that strongly influences the wearing comfort is the ventilation of the helmet. The strategically sensible arrangement of the ventilation openings is decisive for optimum ventilation of the interior. The air is directed into the interior, directed along the head and can then flow out again at the rear. The head is therefore always pleasantly air-conditioned.
The inner shell of all Alpina helmets is made of Hi-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). The material has microscopically small air chambers which absorb the forces acting on the helmet in the event of an impact. Hi-EPS provides optimum protection and at the same time enables extra-thin wall thicknesses and narrow helmet shapes.
In the Inmold production process, the polycarbonate helmet shell is thermally bonded to the Hi-EPS inner shell of the helmet body under great heat and pressure. This creates a large-area and inseparable connection between the upper and lower shell. Advantage: The helmet is very light and at the same time extremely stable.
All Alpina helmets manufactured using the Inmold process receive a robust Ceramic Shell. A polycarbonate plate is stretched under high heat onto the shape of the later helmet and pressed under high pressure onto the Hi-EPS body and thermally connected to it. The Ceramic Shell is characterized by several qualities: It is break- and scratch-resistant, UV-stable and antistatic.
Custom Fit is an adjustment system at the back of the head that allows you to adjust the height of the Run System in several stages. This allows the optimum fit of the helmet to be adjusted for a wide range of head shapes. Pressure points are a thing of the past, the fit of the helmet is perfect and safety is increased.
