All entry and mid level helmets use some kind of polycarbonate plastic for the moulding of the outer shell, mostly stated as polycarbonate composite, high resistance thermoplastic etc. ABS is the most commonly used plastic among manufacturers, while Nolan is particularly proud of the use of Lexan™, claiming higher perfomance and strength against the popular ABS. Most polycarbonate helmets weigh heavier than the fiberglass ones, since a thicker shell is required to provide the necessary safety levels, and plastic helmets age worse too, plastic can deteriorate rapidly through time, heat etc. That's why all demanding riders opt for a fiberglass helmet.

The best of them all. Gore-Tex® is the top choice for highly demanding applications of all kinds. This totally waterproof, windproof and breathable membrare from Gore is based on an expanded form of the synthetic polymer PTFE which is a fluoropolymer. This fluoropolymer is inert, insoluble in water, extremely stable and not biodegradable. Each square inch of the Gore-Tex® membrane has nine billion pores. Each of these tiny holes is 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet but also 700 times bigger than a water vapor molecule. This is what makes it waterproof, windproof but also breathable. But most of the Gore-Tex® success is due to the extended testing every single product is undergoing by Gore it self, before it allows the third party company to release it in the market. The products are brought to their limits, and Gore’s standards are extremely high. In addition to the membrane, a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment is applied to most of these products. This penetrates a jacket’s outer fibers, lowering the surface tension so that water beads up and rolls off. That means less water accumulation, resulting in less wind chill, and less extra weight.



The top windproof membrane from Gore-Tex®, the Infinium™ Windstopper® membrane is totally windproof, with high water-resistance properties but at the same very breathable. Based on the same tech as the waterproof Gore-Tex®, it has billions of pores that are 900 times larger than water vapor molecules, so even though wind can’t get in, moisture from sweat vapor can easily get out. The Infinium™ Windstopper® membrane is used where top windproof properties and breathability are required, but waterproof protection is not necessary.GORE-TEX_INF_LOGO_1K
