Helmet with integrated premium visor: Altona M Trekking Helmet by Alpina
The new commuter helmet from ALPINA gets you closer to your goals. Thanks to a number of new technologies, the ALTONA sets new standards when it comes to safety, ventilation, comfort and integration. The high-performance material Koroyd ensures maximum protection. The stable and extremely lightweight honeycomb structure consists of a multitude of small tubes that are thermally connected to each other. In the event of an impact, they flatten and absorb energy.
Due to the stable design, Koroyd also allows for much larger openings in the helmet surface, which guarantee excellent ventilation. Ventilation ducts guide the air inside the helmet along your head. With the ALTONA, the ventilation management can also be actively regulated by a sliding upper shell. Whether in the cool morning or in hot rush hour traffic, the ventilation is always optimal.
However, the ALTONA is much more than just a helmet. It is a helmet and glasses in one - thanks to the integrated break-proof visor. The light silver-coloured reflective surface reflects infra-red rays, ensuring 100% UV protection at all times. An additional positive: there’s also enough room behind the visor for optical glasses.
The Run System Ergo Flex ensures the perfect fit and the best-possible safety. The delicate design hugs the head evenly. A helmet cannot be adjusted more individually, more easily and more comfortably. The long list of equipment from the ALTONA is completed by loops on the straps that can be used to affix headphones as well as by the plug-in light on the back of the helmet. Two modes, steady and flashing, can be activated at the push of a button, even while riding.

A helmet can only provide proper protection if it stays securely in place in the event of an impact. The fastening that joins the two straps under the ear is critical to this. Alpina‘s Y-Clip system guarantees a perfect fit down to the last millimetre, all in a matter of seconds.
Tried and tested countless times, this is the buckle used in all Alpina cycle helmets. It features a red push button and multi-step automatic adjustment. It can be used one-handed, so for example you can loosen the strap when riding uphill and tighten it again for the descent, and it will not open in the event of a crash.
AIR FLOW VENTING
ALPINA developers invest a lot of time and energy in continually improving the ventilation of our bike helmets. By using a wind tunnel tested configuration of the vents our engineers achieve a “Venturi” effect inside the helmet. It cools the head, reduces perspiration and increases performance.
Edge Protect is applied to the bottom edges of the helmet using Inmold technology – delivering a true plus in safety in side impacts and protection against damage in day-to-day use.
The inner shell of all INMOLD helmets is made of HI-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). It consists of a multitude of microscopic air pockets that absorb the forces occurring in an impact. In addition, HI-EPS absorbs neither water nor sweat.
Inmold helmets are produced by foaming the inner shell underneath the outer shell under high pressure and heat. Thanks to the complete bonding between the upper and lower shells INMOLD helmets are extremely sturdy and very light. In addition, they offer clearly more safety than spot-bonded helmets.
That's the name for the outer shell of all ALPINA helmets featuring INMOLD manufacturing technology. This thin and light-weight material is extremely break- and scratch-resistant, UV-stable and antistatic.
