100% Altec Helmet | MTB Spotlight

The 100% Altec Helmet Changes the Game.

Today we shine the powerful BTO spotlight on the brand new Altec Helmet from 100 Percent. The buzz on this Altec Helmet is deafening, as MTB riders of every skill level are taking notice of the sleek design and bold color choices! What do you say we delve into what makes these new Altec Helmets the choice of so many downhillers today.

This new Altec is the advanced riders choice for a confidence-inspiring and protective all-mountain helmet! It is extremely lightweight- you will hardly notice you are wearing it! Moreover, the ventilation this helmet offers bests any helmet in its class. To be sure, this is quality MTB/BMX Gear– but would you expect anything less? 

Altec Helmet Features

Introducing Smartshock®, the newest, advanced, intelligent, fully suspended rotational system for your brain. Traditional mountain bike 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. Yet it also allows the helmet liner to move independently from the helmet’s shell. Therefore, it reduces energy transfer to the brain over a wide range of speed and impact types. Whats more, there is ample room for your MTB Goggles to give you the panoramic view of the ride that you so desperately need. Onto the features:

 
  • Smartshock® – 14 Point Smartshock® Rotational Protective System
  • Multi-Density EPS foam – injection molded with polycarbonate
  • Massive airflow – With an impressive 15 ventilation ports
  • Altec 350g / M-Shell – Expanded coverage while still lightweight
  • Sunglass Storage – Integrated MTB sunglasses storage system
  • Multi-point adjustable visor designed – For maximum vision and goggle stowage
  • Anti-Microbial liner – Washable, moisture-wicking 
  • Adjustable Ratcheting Fitment System
  • Nexus Push Release Snap-Buckle
  • Size-specific molds – XS/S, S/M, and L/XL

 

TESTED & CERTIFIED

– AS/NZS 2063:2008 
– CE EN 1078:2012+A1:2012 
– CPSC 16 CFR Part 1203 

Especially relevant is the testing and safety certifications that this helmet is racking up. In short, this is MTB Protective Gear of the highest caliber. To that end, you should wear this one with complete confidence out on the hills! Because 100% is dotting all of the I’s and crossing all of the T’s with this one as it relates to rider safety.
