The ALPINA PICO is a bicycle helmet for children and young people. The Inmold construction, fly screen, many ventilation openings and the high-quality adjustment system make the helmet safe and comfortable to wear. A particularly striking feature of the ALPINA PICO is the integrated shield, which protects against direct sunlight and provides additional safety in the event of a fall. Three ventilation openings are integrated into the shield to prevent heat accumulation. A further twelve ventilation openings ensure that the head is well ventilated even on particularly hot days. Fly screens at the front prevent insects from getting inside the helmet. The Run System Ergo Flex+ ensures comfort and optimal adjustment possibilities. The light and filigree construction nestles evenly against the head, thus increasing protection. The Run System can be adjusted via a fine grid. The ALPINA PICO FLASH is light and safe at the same time thanks to the inmould construction, in which the Hi-EPS inner shell is foamed under high pressure and heat under the outer shell.
Run System Ergo Flex
With the Run System, the size of all Alpina helmets can be individually adjusted using a smooth-running rotating wheel. The Run System Ergo Flex is Alpina's lightest and most comfortable fitting system. The filigree construction nestles evenly against the head and thus increases protection. The Run System Ergo Flex can be adjusted via a fine grid - there is no more individual, smooth-running and comfortable way to adjust a helmet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
