We make bold claims About our
Helmet technology

But we back it up with the facts.

Independent, third party safety testing.
Exceeding both expectations and certifications.
Double certified to EN1077 and ASTM F2040.
Results so safe, we post them for you to see for yourself.
Does your current helmet company do that?

basically they are REALLY, REALLY SAFE.


the Dynamic Frame.

Our dynamic frame mixed with our dual-stage liner has been designed to have a low centre of mass, and fits closely to the head to promote the ideal environment to absorb impact energy, and be maximally efficient when it comes to saving your brain.

We are certified to both international snow helmet certifications, EN1077 and ASTM F2040. We release our independent safety testing data for these certifications to be fully transparent with how safe our technology really is.

We’re proud of our results, for good reason.

Beyond that, we believe in you having all the information to make the most informed decision for your brain’s safety.

We’re doing what we think every helmet manufacturer must do - but doesn’t. 


SO, HOW do we do it?

It’s a combination of factors all put together into what we call our ‘Dynamic Frame’. It’s taken us 7 years of R&D to perfect this frame, ensuring it can do it all. The fit and feel of the unit is absolutely unmatched (see rider testimonial here); but the real beauty of it is how it can protect you.

The frame itself is comprised of 80+ parts that create a system that can fit, flex and mould to any headshape, while remaining rock solid and impenetrable when you need it the most.

This, most definitely isn’t the cheapest way to build a snow sports helmet. In fact, our helmet costs up to 5x how much it costs to make a traditional helmet.

We think your brain deserves the best, and we don’t cheap out in design, materials or build quality. Kinda like the Rolls Royce of ski helmets (without the wild price tag).

Want to know

After 7 years of R&D,
we’re glad you asked

Excuse us if it gets a little nerdy.

Let’s, break it down for you with the science.

The outer frame is comprised of 7 polycarbonate, and 2 carbon fibre segments. These sections are fastened by slotted backing plates that retain rivets. The interaction of the rivets, slotted plates, carbon and polycarb segments allow the entire frame to shapeshift around every headshape.

The reason why the shapeshifting is important goes just beyond fit and feel. The closer the protection matrix can be to your skull, the lower the centre of mass and rotational inertia, lower swing weight, the more volume protection material we can fit into the same space and the better it stays in place when you need it most.

Encapsulated by the polycarbonate frame is our patented dual stage liner. Material density is one of the leading factors that determine how effective a helmet is, at which impact energy. Understanding that no two impacts are the same on the snow, we decided to combine two different materials so that we can protect more efficiently across a larger spectrum of impacts.

Even smarter than this, one of the materials we decided to use is a non-Newtonian material. These shear-thickening foams start off soft, then harden instantly on impact, reacting to the energy input from a crash.

Combining the frame and dual stage liner, with our secret recipe of densities, thicknesses and design elements, our drop testing results come out as the best that we’ve seen from any helmet manufacturer

So, we make bold claims. But they’re backed up by the results and the science. We’re an open book here, moreso than any helmet brand in history, as we think your brain protection is your business. If you ever have questions, please feel free to ask!

the test results.

The Anti Ordinary A2 is certified to and significantly exceeds the EN1077 (European) and ASTM F2040 (USA) helmet certifications standards. Both certifications drop a steel headform from a pre-determined height.

In these tests, we measure the force transmitted to the brain throughout the impact, so less force is better.

As you can see below in our drop test results, we are a lot lower (a lot better) than the standard.


EN1077 Certification.

The EN1077 drops the metal headform from 1.5m onto a flat anvil, and has a passing threshold of 250G, with 250G being the maximum force that is allowed to be transferred to the brain to pass the standard. It also does a penetration test, with a metal striker dropped from 37.5cm, where no contact with the headform is allowable.

ASTM F2040 Test Results.

ASTM F2040 Certification.

The ASTM F2040 drops from a variety of heights, ranging from 2m
to 1.2m, depending on the drop surface’s shape.

ASTM tests a kerbstone (square), hemisphere (round) and flat anvils.

We believe your brain safety is your business.

So we don’t hide anything.



Dynamic Frame (patented)

Our 2x patented dynamic frame is designed to articulate in more than 8 different sections to make seamless and natural adjustment to any headshape.

The polycarbonate and ABS blend frame can expand more than 200% laterally and 130% longitudinally to ensure that it fits on every head perfectly. 

Behind this lies a novel structure of carbon, rivets and slotted retention plates that enable this movement, while maintaining the ultimate integrity of the unit when you need it most – in an impact. 

Dual Stage Liner (patented)

A patented composite protection system which utilises multiple materials to absorb more force across a larger range of impacts. We know now that it’s not just the big TBI’s that are problematic for our brain, but also the sub-concussive impacts that cause CTE. 

Using a combination of firmer and more docile materials allows the A2 to protect more effectively through it’s depth of compression; softer like a pillow in small impacts and harder like a car’s crumple zone in big hits.

This more progressive impact matrix gives the A2 a broad range of effectiveness on the hill.

ThE Occipital Cup

The OC is a unique tension and cup system that is designed to assist in cupping one of the most unique points of any head – the Occipital Bump. Located where your spine enters the skull, every bump is different. It represents the area where you’d normally perch a hat or a beanie but is typically left alone by traditional helmets. 

We cup this tension member down underneath your occipital bump, causing the entire unit to sit lower, closer and more comfortably to your head. A tester said it ‘feels like a hug’, and that’s the work of the dynamic frame and OC working together seamlessly. 

Centre of Gravity/Mass Centralisation

The A2’s unique Dynamic Frame strives to have the lowest centre of gravity in the market. Every millimetre that the A2 sits closer to your head is less torque applied to your head; from swing weight, neck stability and impact safety.

The mass centralisation of the A2 is designed to have the A2 fit close and low to promote safety and comfort in all situations. As can be seen from the formulas for torque shown below.

Non-Newtonian Materials (patented)

Our dual-stage liner utilises shear-thickening non-Newtonian PU foams that are naturally soft, but harden instantly in response to impact, delivering a dynamic foam hardness that intelligently protects from small impacts to big hits.
