Italian protection brand Bluegrass has released the new Legit Carbon helmet.
Last spring, Bluegrass brought out a new helmet prototype at the second round of the UCI DH World Cup at Fort Bill, with the idea to build a new elite-level lid.
Now just before the last Downhill race on the UCI Calendar 2018, they have released the final version.
The Legit Carbon uses a carbon fibre outer shell paired with a multi-impact EPS liner to achieve a blend of high impact performance and low weight.
It features a flexible safety-release visor to avoid wearers twisting their necks from impacts from any angle and has hearing vents to help riders hear better and maintain balance.
The ASTM certified chin guard hosts three wide vents that allow wearers to breathe easily.
The MIPS:E2 liner is made up of two multi-directional, stretch fabric layers sewn together around a thin, plastic foil.
When inserted between the comfort padding of the helmet and the outer EPS shell, the liner provides broad coverage from rotational impacts without sacrificing comfort or sweat absorption.
The Legit Carbon also has snap-in soft padding to boost comfort.
Vents and air channeling are optimised for all day park sessions and the two large exhausts work in synergy with the EPS channels.
Durability and quality are enhanced by an injected PU foam paired with the chin guard and three polycarbonate shells strategically moulded on the EPS liner.
The Bluegrass Legit Carbon will be available in four colour schemes and will hit stores in November.
