Abus Kranium Performance
Three years in development the amazing Kranium Performance is a step
change in helmet technology. Designed by Anirudha Surahbi the helmet is
inspired by nature to offer what has to be possibly the safest helmet
available on the market today.
This helmet fulfils the demands of urban cyclists and commuters. It
was specially developed for ecologically, nature and enviromentally
conscious bikers. The helmet is a unique, exclusive world's first. The
helmet has a completely new, ecological and technical concept.
It offers a shock-absorption through dual layer wood-cellulose fibre
honeycomb board. Recycled EPS completes the construction. Significantly
higher shock-absorbing properties compared to EPS. The main part of the
helmet is separately fully recyclable or made of recycled material.
It has also a weatherproof and humidity-resistant wood-cellulose
board. Removable and washable padding with a high natural fibre
percentage ensures a maximum comfort. Soft touch natural fibre straps
easy to adjust by practical sliders.
Kranium Technology Highlights
Better Impact: 1/3rd G-value during crash.
When compared to a regular Polystyrene helmet, the Kranium liner absorbs
an average of 3 times the amount of impact. On a standard kerb test,
the user experiences 70g which is a significant reduction compared to
the 200g which would have been experienced using a Polystyrene helmet.
Waterproof: Coated with agent. The helmet
can stand up to the elements, as it has been treated to be sweat- and
rain-proof. The design is topped off with a “waterproof acrylic
compound” that prevents the cardboard shell from getting wet.
Sustainable: Made from recycled materials.
Expanded Polystyrene Helmets are made from petroleum based products
which are harmful to the atmosphere.
Lightweight: 250g lighter. The Kranium Helmet is 15 percent lighter than typical expanded polystyrene or EPS helmets.
