BOLLÉ EXPANDS HELMET LINE FOR 2017-2018 SEASON

February 16, 2017

Overland Park, Kansas  – For the 2017-2018 season, Bollé is bringing several new models and innovative features to its selection of helmets for adults and children. These updates result in the brand's most comprehensive and complete line of winter protective headgear to date.

A completely new model for next season, Instinct is the first Bollé helmet with exclusive AViD liner technology. This new construction technique combines high density EPS in the main structure with a low-density EPS inner insert. This mix of materials is optimized with interior ventilation channels that - in addition to ensuring excellent airflow - virtually decrease density to provide balanced protection. The result is a lighter, more comfortable helmet with finely-tuned performance across a broad range of impacts. Additional features include: Dual Shell In-Mold construction, Boa closure system and adjustable ventilation.

 Inspired by the brand's long involvement in competition, two new racing helmets are joining the line. Both models are FIS approved and were engineered from the ground up to provide safety, comfort and stability at speed. The shell of the Medalist Carbon Pro is made of high-strength carbon fiber. The Medalist shell is made of carbon-reinforced fiberglass. With the weight savings realized by their respective shell materials and carefully engineered components, these two helmets achieve category-leading lightness. Both have ultra-smooth wind-cheating profiles and are chinguard compatible.                                                       

A new member of the affordably priced yet well-equipped Bollé Classics family of helmets, Beat is offered in a range of eye-catching colors. Weighing in at only 400 grams, features include: In-Mold construction, integrated ventilation, CLICK-TO-FIT system, Removable ear pads and detachable washable lining. Olympic Champions Anna Veith and Maddie Bowman provide the inspiration for next season’s Signature Series collection of helmets and goggles.

The models described above and all the other products in Bollé's 2017/2018 winter collection will be available at retail in the fall of 2017. Prices have not yet been set.
