ALPINESTARS 2024 SM5 ACTION 2 BLK/WHT/BRT RD HELMET XL
The SM5 helmet has been designed to provide MX riders with a helmet that is safe and purposefully designed to deliver optimal protection and comfort.
An engineered raised area with padding effectively reduces the forces transmitted to the collarbone and a patented visor release system ensures the visor is released with the correct pre-determined amount of force, irrespective of the angle of impact.
Revised the medium, large, XL, and 2XL lower shell volume to be around 3% wider to make the helmet easier to put on and take off, The increase in helmet volume has also improved the impact management performance which is now 44% lower than the regular-speed threshold.
For the new ECE 22.06 standard, the SM5 achieves a 44% better regular-speed impact rating compared to the current 33% figure, as well as a 32% better low-speed, and 31% better high-speed linear impact score than the prevailing standard.
Multiple-density inner liner to ensure the correct density in the correct area for enhanced impact absorption.
Redesigned chin bar’s new profile, where the base area has been specifically sculpted to give a relief section, raised to clear the collarbone, with a new softer EPS liner that extends beyond the helmet shell itself and is covered by a more flexible rubber compound providing a reduced chance of any sort of collarbone injury.
Maximized ventilation and high levels of heat transfer exchange thanks to multi-air inlets and exhaust ports.
The ECE version of the SM5 helmet weighs 1,350 grams for a size medium, and 1420 grams for the ECE DOT version with shield.
The visor has been designed to direct air into the ports for enhanced airflow.
The SM5 is available in 2 versions ECE R 22.06 and ECE R 22.06/DOT.
The inner and outer surfaces are engineered to minimize the effects of oblique impacts. To help fight and mitigate those rotational impact forces, Alpinestars has designed a proprietary technology by creating a low friction surface on the inner surface of the EPS liner. For the ECE 22.06 standard, which now includes the rotational oblique impact rating, the SM5 scores 70% under the new regulation.
Patented visor release system ensures the visor is released with the correct pre-determined amount of force, irrespective of the angle of impact.
The lightweight outer shell is constructed from a technologically advanced impact-resistant thermoplastic in three anatomical shell sizes, plus three individual EPS inner liner sizes with a combination of the inner lining and cheek padding to offer 6 unique sizes and to ensure the best fitment and protection.
