Alpinestars Supertech M10 Helmet

Alpinestars got their foot in the door, almost literally, with footwear, later the Italian brand moved onto motocross gear in general: pants, shirts and gloves, later the company worked on the same for the road-going crowd. Armored gear was added to the lineup, but all the while, conspicuously absent was something to cover the head, until now with the Alpinestars Supertech M10 Helmet.

Like all their gear, this helmet was engineered from the start to offer the best possible protection in a thoughtful design. Itís built to be as light as possible with no compromise as far as safety is concerned. To do this, a complete, high-density carbon fiber out shell over an armadic fiber (Kevlar-type material) is used. The former, dissipates any impact over a larger area while the latter resists penetration at the point of impact. Another layer of UD carbon composite within the shell imparts additional resistance against deformation at impact.

Below that, a multi-density expanded polystyrene (EPS) impact-absorbing liner is fitted. Four different densities of this material are carefully positioned to maximize impact protection for the riderís sake. Not only does the EPS liner serve in this critical role, but itís also an integral part of keeping your head cool. Ventilation shafts are molded in place that complement the intake and exhaust vents of the helmetís exterior. Furthermore, the visor works with these vents to direct cooling air to the scalp.

The M10 line employs four different shell and EPS size combination to best realize impact mitigation and weight savings. After all, a helmet canít perform at its best if itís not properly sized for the rider.

Which brings us to the helmetís liner. This fully-removable affair is made with a cool-max fabric that removes moisture from the riderís head. Not only that, but the liner can be shaped using the including padding for a perfect fit against the top of the skull. The A-Head fitment system gives you all of the adjustability you need to fit the lid perfectly in place atop the skull.

And when weíre talking about value, (how much is your head worth?!), youíll be pleasantly surprised how it stacks up against Japanese competition. Tons of features are packed into this lid, and once you put it on, youíll feel like a million bucks are sat atop your head! It really is a nice piece of equipment.

Each helmet ships with a nice Alpinestars helmet bag, spare visor and a thick ownerís manual that tells you everything you need to know to get the most out of the helmet.
