Alpina - Mythos 3.0 L.E
Proven protection off the beaten track: Mythos 3.0 LE. from Alpina
It is one of the best-selling bicycle helmets on the market: the Mythos 3.0 LE. A fit proven millions of times over and an outstanding price/performance ratio have made it into a bestseller. The helmet’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.
The back and temple areas pull further down for optimal safety off-road. This creates even greater head coverage. With the Run System Ergo Plus, which is combined with the height-adjustable Custom Fit, the helmet can be perfectly adapted to your head. Another plus for comfort: the removable anti-bacterial cushioning. Fly screens keep insects away from the head, and the shield guarantees optimum protection in the field of vision. The lower edge of the helmet is protected by the additional polycarbonate Edge Protect shell. The high-quality matt finish adds a touch of refinement to the Mythos.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The detachable shield protects against dirt splash as well as direct sunlight.
