The clear lines and clean design of the ALPINA MAROI combine to produce a distinctive modern shape. The helmet shell consists of two polycarbonate plates which are joined together in an invisible seal thanks to our Seamless Connection process. Edge Protect reinforces the full circumference of the helmet and smooth surface transitions further enhance the quality of the exterior. The outside also benefits from numerous air vents integrated at strategic points to ensure that the goggles are well ventilated and that plenty of cool air is supplied to the air channels. The airflow inside the helmet is now directed along the whole head. which simultaneously supplies cool air and transports heat away. One feature that’s not new but has proven its worth consistently is the fit. It is the same as that used in ALPINA’s best-selling helmet. The GRAP was the model used in the development of the ALPINA MAROI. The optimised interior with moulded structure and cushion sections guarantees optimum comfort of wear and safety as the head is enclosed all round: maximum protection and maximum fun in the backcountry.
Inmold ski helmets by Alpina are very light as well as extremely sturdy. This is achieved by a production process in which the helmet’s polycarbonate upper shell is fused with the EPS granulate under high heat and pressure. The result is an inseparable bond between the upper and lower shells across a large area.
The inner shell of every Alpina helmet consists of HI-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). These microscopic air pockets absorb the forces that act in an impact and provide the protective damping. HI-EPS allows extra-thin wall thicknesses and slim helmet shapes to be achieved. As HI-EPS absorbs neither water nor perspiration the protective effect is retained for a long time.
An extremely Impact- and scratch-resistant layer applied to the bottom edge of the helmet. It enhances safety oin the event of a side Impact and pretects the EPS against damage.
Run System Ergo Snow
Alpina ski helmets rely on the time-tested Run System Ergo Snow, a flexible head adjustment system with a central rotatable control knob. The top-end model has two large pads to the left and right of the redesigned control knob that distribute pressure. The large control knob is made of a two-component mix that grips well and can be perfectly operated even when wearing ski gloves.
Proven a hundred-thousand-fold and used in all Alpina ski helmets: Our famous strap buckle with a red push button and multi-step automatic locking mechanism. Ergomatic can be operated when wearing ski gloves – the strap can be loosened while using the ski lift and tightened again before the downhill run – and is prevented from opening on its own in a crash.
A helmet can only protect the wearer as effectively as it stays in its optimal position in case of a fall. The retention of the two under-ear straps plays a crucial part in this. Alpinas “Y-Clip” system guarantees optimal adjustment with millimeter-accuracy – easily and in a matter of seconds.
Further airstream regulation features the Airstream Control Ventilation openings of the helmet can be opened and closed by a sliding mechanism. Perfect climate around your head is guaranteed.
Freecarve or freeride bonanzas can be sweat-inducing affairs! Especially the head acts as a veritable “heat exchanger.” That’s why Alpina ski helmets equipped with Changeable Interior allow you to quickly remove the interior lining, handwash it in tepid soap water, let it dry and simply insert it again.
The Removable Earpads can be detached in fractions of a second and stowed in the pockets of a ski jacket. When enjoying the snow on a warm and sunny Easter weekend, this feature will allow you to experience an even higher degree of freedom during your ride. And when temperatures drop again, just click the earpads back on.
The Alpina Neckwarmer is pulled down low at the back of the helmet and consists of a comfortable, soft micro-fleece material. This “heat collar” also prevents the neck from being hit by air draft at high speed and Siberian temperatures. Thanks to its clever construction there are no pressure points.
