RUDY PROJECT STERLING HELMET

In 1985, Rudy Project was founded in Treviso Italy and manufactures many of the top sports eye wear, goggles and helmets in the athletic industry. The quality of the materials used and innovative designs keep their products on the cutting edge of performance and comfort. The In Mold architecture merges two materials together (Styrofoam and polycarbonate cap) to form a seamless rigid skeleton structure.  This high pressure combination reduces weight and improves the resistance to impact. The scientific position of the 18 external vents force a cooling airflow effect on the head, which reduces temperature and moisture.  The position of the helmet is fitted thru the RSR 7 disc retention system. This Retention system offers vertical and horizontal adjustment to micro metric dial in the perfect fit for the rider. The padding of the helmet is in itself the “plushest softest” feel I have ever experienced and has 2 sets of interchangeable pads that are included in the purchase. The stop bug padding is non-allergenic, anti-perspiration and has a protective net to keep the bugs away for you.
