Best possible protection for the smallest heads: that's what the Ximo from Alpina offers. The children's helmet has a variety of detailed solutions, all geared to one goal - maximum safety with maximum comfort. The Run System Classic Slide, which can be adjusted three-dimensionally to the head, ensures a perfect fit and guarantees a high level of comfort and protection. The low weight is due to the Inmold manufacturing process, in which the upper shell is thermally bonded to the Hi-EPS. This results in a firm surface connection, which is responsible for a very stable construction. In addition, the edges are finished with the Edge Protect polycarbonate shell.
The outer shell has exclusive Disney and Star Wars designs - just like the removable, washable and inner padding. The vents are strategically placed to keep the sun's rays away from your head, while providing excellent ventilation. The rear of the bike helmet is designed flat to increase comfort in the child seat or trailer. High visibility at dusk or night is ensured by the retrofit Multi-Fit Light.
Run System Classic Slide
With the Run System, the size of all Alpina helmets can be individually adjusted with a smooth-running rotating wheel. The Run System Classic scores with its price/performance ratio. It is a simple and robust adjustment wheel that holds the helmet safely and easily where it belongs: on the head.
Proven hundreds of thousands of times and used in all Alpina helmets: the belt buckle with the red push button and multi-stage automatic lock. Ergomatic can be operated with one hand - uphill you can loosen the strap, downhill you can tighten it - and in the event of a fall, the buckle mechanism cannot open by itself.
A helmet can only provide the best possible protection if it remains in the optimum position in the event of a collision. The adjustment and fixing of the two straps under the ear plays a decisive role in this. The Y-clip system guarantees a millimetre-precise adjustment - in seconds.
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 purposefully directed into the interior, where it is guided along the head and can flow out again at the rear. The head is thus always pleasantly air-conditioned.
All helmets from Alpina, which are manufactured using the Inmold process, are equipped with a robust ceramic shell. A polycarbonate plate is stretched under high heat onto the shape of the future helmet and pressed with high pressure onto the Hi-EPS body and thermally bonded to it. The Ceramic Shell is characterized by several qualities: It is break and scratch resistant, UV-stable and antistatic.
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 that act on the helmet during an impact. Hi-EPS provides optimum protection and at the same time allows extra-thin wall thicknesses and narrow helmet shapes.
In the Inmold production process, the helmet upper shell made of polycarbonate is thermally bonded to the Hi-EPS inner shell of the helmet body under great heat and strong 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.
Edge Protect is an additional polycarbonate plate that enhances inmold helmets. It covers edges on the underside of the helmet. This protects the Hi-EPS and increases the durability of the helmet.
