Traditional bicycle helmets are designed to provide direct, straight on impact absorption. But in real life, most cyclists experience oblique, angular impacts that produce both rotational acceleration and deceleration forces on our brain.
The Smartshock® suspended rotational system improves protection by immediately compressing and absorbing direct impacts but also allows the helmet liner to move independently from the helmet's shell, thus reducing energy transfer to the brain over a wide range of speed and impact types.
Introducing Smartshock®, the newest, advanced, intelligent, fully suspended rotational system for your brain.
The Smartshock® Rotational System suspension:
1. Improves protection by immediately compressing and absorbing direct impacts
2. Allows the helmet liner to move independently from the helmet's shell
Both features help reduce energy transfer to the brain over a wide range of speed and impact types.
Smartshock® Elastomers allow the helmet liner tomove independently from the helmet's shell.
100% helmets like the TRAJECTA have been designed from inception with Smartshock ®, incorporating the newest, most advanced, intelligent, fully suspended rotational system for your brain.
Why is it more effective than traditional helmet designs?
During a glancing oblique impact, the Smartshock® system immediately begins defusing rotational energy at the outer shell of the helmet; rather than traditional helmet designs which only begin to absorb forces after they’ve passed through layers of helmet foam.
