Speed Skiing Helmet

One of the first applications using fiberglass, hand-laminated polyester resin, and a high-density impact foam, this helmet applied new thinking in aerodynamics and wind resistance into it’s design. A powerful form that did two jobs well, shaving valuable seconds off a run by wrapping the skier into a smooth missile form, and giving the athlete considerable crash safety, which increased their confidence.
