CARAT
Order number: A9035177
Cool kids like cool designs. This is what the Carat, a classic and loyal companion to countless beginning skiers, offers. Despite the entry-level price, the Carat offers maximum safety and many features. The helmet is very lightweight yet sturdy thanks to the Inmold design. The polycarbonate shell connected to the Hi-EPS is unbreakable and scratch-proof, as well as UV-resistant and antistatic. The helmet can be adjusted to the child’s head using the Run system. A central dial allows the headband to be adjusted more loosely or more tightly. To keep the helmet from slipping off the head, the helmet’s strap is secured under the chin with the Ergomatic strap buckle with red button and multi-step automatic adjustment. The system can easily be used even while wearing ski gloves, and can’t open by itself in case of a fall. Thus the Carat gives parents a sense of security too when the children set out for their first turns on the piste.
Technologies
Ceramic Shell
Ceramic Shell

All Alpina helmets manufactured using the inmold process are fitted with a robust ceramic shell. A polycarbonate plate is stretched under intense heat onto the shape of the helmet in the making and pressed onto the Hi-EPS body under high pressure and thermally bonded to it. The Ceramic shell is characterized by several qualities: It is impact- and scratch-resistant, UV-stable and antistatic.

Ergomatic
Ergomatic

Proven a hundred thousand times over and used on all Alpina helmets: the strap buckle with the red push button and multi-step automatic locking mechanism. Ergomatic can be operated with one hand - you can loosen the strap on the way up the mountain and tighten it for downhill - and in a fall the locking mechanism cannot open automatically.

Hi-EPS
Hi-EPS

The inner shell of all Alpina helmets is made of Hi-EPS (High Expanded Polystyrene). The material has microscopically small air chambers that absorb the forces acting on the helmet in the event of an impact. Hi-EPS provides optimum protection and at the same time allows for extra-thin helmet wall as well as narrow helmet shapes.

Inmold
Inmold

In the inmould production process, the polycarbonate upper shell is thermally bonded to the Hi-EPS inner shell of the helmet body under intense heat and pressure. This creates a large and inseparable connection between the upper and lower shell. Advantage: The helmet is very light and at the same time extremely stable.

Run System Classic
Run System Classic

The Run System enables all Alpina helmets to adjust to a custom size by using an easy-to-move dial. The Run System Classic scores points for its price/performance ratio. It is a simple and sturdy wheel that holds the helmet securely in place where it belongs: on the head.

Venting System

Air vents ensure optimum air conditioning, air circulation and effectively prevent heat accumulation inside the helmet.
