GIRO COMBYN HELMET NAMED WINNER OF ISPO AWARD 2013

BREAKTHROUGH SOFTSHELL HELMET HONORED IN THE ACTION CATEGORY
Giro’s all-new Combyn helmet has earned top honors at ISPO 2013.

The award—the result of voting by 57 judges from 14 countries—is further validation for the breakthrough technologies Giro employed to create the industry’s first softshell helmet.

The Combyn is the first in a new category of snow helmets inspired by park and pipe riding, where repeated impacts are the price of progression. Giro’s softshell technology employs a patent-pending, impact-absorbing liner made of Vinyl Nitrile (VN) foam. VN is soft and flexible and allows the helmet to manage both high- and low-energy impacts across a wide range of temperatures. When that liner is matched with a proprietary shell material originally developed for football and hockey helmets, the result is a helmet that delivers a comfortable and flexible fit with unmatched durability.
