Maximum safety and comfort for Kids: the Ximo Kid's Helmet by Alpina
The 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. In addition, the edges are finished with the polycarbonate Edge Protect shell. The air vents are strategically positioned to keep the sun’s rays away from the head while simultaneously ensuring excellent ventilation.
The rear of the bicycle helmet is designed to be flat, increasing comfort when sitting in the child seat or trailer. The reflectors and the Multi-Fit Light integrated in the rear ensure high visibility at dusk or at night.

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.
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.
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.
RUN SYSTEM CLASSIC
Riders using their bikes for short trips to the supermarket do not necessarily need a highly sophisticated adjustment system. For such needs, our RUN SYSTEM CLASSIC suffi ces. A simple and rugged control knob keeps the helmet where it belongs: on the rider’s head.
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.
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.
