Riding Helmet E-LIGHT SHINE RED
incl. VAT Shipping calculated at checkout
The E-light is born of KEP Italia’s continuous strive for excellence and innovation. Despite already boasting the lightest helmets on the market, KEP Italia wanted to go one step further and create a helmet weighing less than 400g.
The E-light weighs just 396g, due to the 100% carbon fibre cap, handcrafted through the autoclave process to handle the most minute of aesthetic details. The autoclave process is long and complex. Specialist craftsmen stratify the carbon fibres by hand to garner amazing results in terms of quality and high mechanical strength, making the cap light but equally resistant; thus achieving enhanced protection notwithstanding the lightness of the finished product. E-light is undoubtedly the lightest helmet on the market but is also among the world’s safest.
In the coloured-carbon version, the carbon fibres of the cap are masterfully woven with white, copper, red and blue-coloured, high mechanical performance technical materials. For the first time, carbon becomes coloured, making the product stand out from other helmets of its kind. It is possible to choose between the “naked” model, without any inserts, in order to enhance the coloured-carbon texture or instead, the model with two or three inserts, in black, red or blue that add a certain boldness and personality to your style.
- weight: +/- 396 grams
GRILLE The front grille has an air control system through the delicate moving up and down of the central switch. The polystyrene foam to guarantee a major protection in case of penetration of insects. The frame of the hardhat is the perfect coordination of three interconnecting parts that leave sinuous paths for a great air circulation. The high tech polystyrene is in double density foam for a better shock absorption.
AIR CONTROL SYSTEM The perfect and homogeneous air circulation keeps the head always cool and dry. Hot air generated by the head temperature speed out to outer surface and through the rear channels. The peak is flexible in order to avoid fractures during a fall.
CHIN-STRAP Five point harness fitted with the hardhat support system. The chinstrap directly inserted in the hardhat through three passing rings is completely in smooth non-allergic and washable leather. The rivets are not in contact with the skin. This has been studied to avoid skin disorders.
INNER PAD The one-piece inner padding is attached to an anatomic cushion that perfectly fits the nape ensuring optimum comfort and absolute air diffusion thanks to the high tech materials used: Coolmax® coupled with open-cells filter and smooth Sanitised treated micro-fibre. The inner pad can also be bought separately as spare-part.
REMOVE AND REPLACE THE INNER PAD
1. Raise the front part and then the lateral parts of the padding stick from the helmet.
2. Detach the inner pad from the “Velcro” placed on the polystyrene foam.
3. Remove the pad. Once the pad is washed and dry, fit in again the lateral parts of the padding stick. The central part of the stick remains partly lifted so as to allow air confluence.
4. Dress again the rest of the pad inside the crown with a light pressure of the hands over the “Velcro”placed on the lateral and rear parts of the polystyrene foam.
*** Please note, you must purchase the inner pad for your KEP helmet separately ***
