Alpina - Anzana L.E
Enduro entry-level helmet in limited edition: Anzana L.E Helmet by Alpina
Large paving stones, weathered, overgrown, blocked – this is what is left over from the old pass road to the Col d'Anzana. The remnants from days gone by are the basis for something new today. The rough route down to Tirano has become a popular trail for enduro riders, because it is so technically demanding and requires total concentration. That is why maximum protection is needed for the descent. This is exactly why it is the inspiration for the ALPINA ANZANA.
The ANZANA is priced in the enduro entry-level range. Nevertheless, it is equipped with top features from ALPINA's technology box and so offers an excellent price-performance ratio. Above all, the high-quality Run System Ergo Plus guarantees optimal grip. With its fine adjustment, it fits any head perfectly. In addition, the height of the adjustment system can be adjusted via the Custom Fit System. This results in a secure fit and optimal protection.
The outer shell of the helmet is made of a robust polycarbonate plate, which is thermally connected to the Hi-EPS in the inmold procedure. This results in a solid surface connection, which creates extra stability. Thanks to the ‘Made in Germany’ quality, the highest degree of production quality is also guaranteed. The ANZANA’s equipment list also includes the large visor, which protects the field of vision, an antibacterial and washable padding for a high level of comfort and a fly screen in the front ventilation openings.

RUN SYSTEM ERGO PRO
The top model of the new Alpina Adaptation Systems for the rear head has left and right of the central newly designed two large "headrests". Both, the wing-shaped cushion as well as the adjusting wheel itself, are made of a two component mix containing synthetic material and rubber. Since 2014, the Run System Ergo Pro is available in matching colors to the helmet.
Helmet pads made of a special padding material reduce the formation of bacteria and thus prevent perspiration odors.
For protection against insect bites, the front holes of some models are lined with a net.
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.
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.
The detachable shield protects against dirt splash as well as direct sunlight.
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.
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.
Because heads vary in shape they need an adjustment system that is flexible. In combination with the Run Systems, Custom Fit ensures a slip-free, snug fit. The rear neck support can be adjusted to several angles of incline so that it fits snugly and without pressure points.
A helmet can only protect the wearer as effectively as it stays in its optimal position in case of a crash. The retention of the two under-ear straps plays a crucial part in this. ALPINA’s “Y-Clip” system guarantees adjustment with millimeter-accurcy – in a matter of seconds.
