Smith Optics Helmet Aerocore Construction
Smith's objective and design philosophy behind Aerocore construction is to increase airflow, improve temperature regulation resulting in fog-free vision and improved impact resistance. The objective was achieved through the combination of materials such as EPS and Koroyd, a revolutionary new material that absorbs more energy upon impact when compared to international standards, while increasing airflow. Aerocore construction through the use of Koroyd and EPS allows for more vents to be placed throughout the helmet without sacrificing protection and comfort.
FOUR PRIMARY BENEFITS
- Improved airflow and ventilation
- Increased impact resistance
- Reduce helmet volume and weight
- Fog-free vision
|ENGINEERED ABSORPTION||ENGINEERED PROTECTION||FULL BREATHABILITY|
|The combination of Koroyd's precise and unique thermal welding process leads to a structure with both extremely efficient and consistent enegry aborption properties. Upon impact, the cores crush in a completely controlled manner, decelerating the energy from the impact and reducing the final trauma levels.||Thousands of co-polymer extruded tubes, thermally welded to create an unparalleled consistent and fully engineered core. Each Koroyd section is engineered to precise durometer, size, and thickness specifications to provide the greatest impact resistance and aesthetically consistent presentation.||Koroyd is an energy absorber which is fully breathable and doesn't compromise impact performance. Koroyd's open cell construction allows air in, while expelling hot air from the rider's head. The completely open cell construction integrates with internal channels to create the full Aerocore construction to provide ventilated protection.|
