The design for the new City Bike Helmet for Acro is unique in its innovative use of materials.
In the Ovetto design, the typical outer layer made of Polycarbonate (PC) is replaced, after numerous tests, by TMF Felt.
A material that tested provided as good as PC results under impacts, because of its intricate structure felt easily dissipate the forces on impact without actual damages.
