Alpina - Garbanzo
The Garbanzo’s low weight is due to the inmold production where the upper shell is thermally connected with the Hi-EPS. This results in a solid surface connection, which is responsible for a very sturdy design. Fly screens keep insects away from the head, and the large shield guarantees optimum protection in the field of vision. The back and temple areas pull further down for optimal safety off-road. This creates even greater head coverage.
The lower edge of the helmet is protected by the additional polycarbonate shell Edge Protect. With the Run System Ergo Pro, which can be combined with the height-adjustable Custom Fit, the helmet can be perfectly adjusted to your head. Another plus for comfort: the removable anti-bacterial cushioning. It makes the helmet pleasant and comfortable to wear at all times – no matter how hot it gets on country trails.

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.
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.
All ALPINA helmets are equipped with ERGOMATIC strap buckles. The anti-twist, automatic multi-step adjustment system is easy to operate using just one hand and prevented from opening in case 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.
For protection against insect bites, the front holes of some models are lined with a net.
Helmet pads made of a special padding material reduce the formation of bacteria and thus prevent perspiration odors.
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.
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.
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.
This manufacturing process ensures that there are no sharp edges to be found on Inmold helmets, reducing the risk of getting hurt in two ways: firstly, handling the helmet is always comfortable for the hands, and secondly, the bottom edge of the helmet will not cause scratches to the neck and shoulder areas in the event of a crash.
