How the Nerv's shell is manufactured





Technical data (Index)

Italian Design


Design

The Nerv light was designed by Ignazio Bernardi, with technical consultancy from the greatest Italian helmet designer.
The result is a helmet with a distinctive, modern appearance.

Shell in strong polycarbonate


Calotta

The 3 mm polycarbonate shell is very light but also very strong.

Polystyrene


Polistirolo

To make the helmet as light as possible, the polystyrene has a series of carefully-engineered perforations.

Standard features

3 sizes with interchangeable internal padding


Interno

The size of a helmet is specified by the inner circumference of the internal padding.
The size number therefore corresponds to the head circumference in centimetres.

The Standard version of the Nerv light helmet is supplied with 3 sets of internal padding with different thickness, for sizes:

In addition, we have created a brand-new system to further enhance helmet comfort.
Every size is attained by means of 6 small, soft and breathable padding pieces that can all be replaced by 6 thicker or thinner ones.
In total we deliver the helmet with 3 sets of 6 padding pieces of different thicknesses so that you can be sure to attain a perfect fit simply by changing all or some of the padding pieces.
This system provides another benefit: it is easy to remove the padding pieces and replace them with new pieces. They are simply attached to the polystyrene liner with small lengths of Velcro.

Adjustable black chin strap with standard buckle

Rubber shell edge trim

Exclusive features

Sizes: new patented ESR (Elastic size regulator)


ESR

We will publish the photo as soon as the patent has been issued to our company.

Our new patented ESR (Elastic size regulator) is designed to provide perfect automatic regulation from size S (56 cm) to L (61 cm).
The height of the regulator can also be easily adjusted.
To ensure a perfect fit, the helmet has 3 very soft, breathable padding pieces.
Each padding piece can be replaced independently with a thicker or thinner piece.
In total we deliver the helmet with 3 sets of 3 padding pieces of different thicknesses so that you can be sure to attain a perfect fit simply by changing all or some of the padding pieces.

Micrometric chin strap


Buckles

The chin strap can be infinitesimally adjusted.

Special shell edge trim


Bordura

In the exclusive version, instead of the usual rubber edge trim, we have developed a method of stitching a strip of fabric all the way around the helmet.
The result is attractive and absolutely unique.

E.N. 1385 Certification


Test

The Nerv-light has been tested by the italian laboratory CSI, a company authorized by the Italian Ministry of Transport.

For the first time, we have attained a new certification for this lightweight helmet: E.N. 1385 (Helmets for canoeing and white water sports)

Please note that a lightweight helmet – just 355-390 grams – will never pass the demanding EN 966 certification.
Nevertheless the helmet provides excellent head protection.
