15 kilometers uphill, maximum gradient: 16 percent - the 2057 meter high Fedaia is a challenge for racing cyclists. A challenge that offers everything: steep ramps, serpentines, a fast descent, technically demanding curves, a flat plateau. The pass is predestined for all-rounders. And therefore the inspiration for the new Alpina racing bike helmet.
Alpina Fedaia: It is an all-rounder that inspires with its ventilation, aerodynamics, comfort and uncompromising protection. The Alpina Fedaia consists of a three-part shell system that gives each helmet section a maximum of stability. The resistant polycarbonate layers are processed using the Inmold process, where they are thermally bonded under high pressure to the shock-absorbing High EPS material.
The result is a lightweight helmet that offers maximum protection in every situation. The safety is additionally increased by the optimal and comfortable fit. With the Run System Classic adjustment system, which is combined with the Custom Fit height adjustment, the helmet always has the ideal position on the head. At the same time, it has a slim silhouette, which improves aerodynamics and looks. Together with equipment details such as the integrated fly net, the Ergomatic chin buckle, the Y-clip for adjusting the webbing or the optional Multi-Fit Light, the result is a helmet with an outstanding price/performance ratio.
Whether downhill, uphill or flat: the Alpina Fedaia offers advantages on every route profile and is therefore the ideal companion for the next adventure.
Run System CLASSIC
The Run System allows the size of all Alpina helmets to be individually adjusted using 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 securely and uncomplicatedly where it belongs: on the head.
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.
