Rudy Project Helmet Technology

SUPERIOR PROTECTION, PHENOMENAL AERODYNAMICS, EXTREME COMFORT AND VENTILATION. ALL OF OUR HELMETS FEATURES STATE-OF-THE ART TECHNOLOGIES TO ENSURE THE BEST STANDARDS OF SAFETY & PERFORMANCE.

Wind Tunnel Testing

With 50 years of Formula 1 experience, Swissside has revolutionized the cycling industry with unmatched aerodynamic and engineering knowledge. Swissside conducted a thorough wind tunnel study to prove the performance of the entire Rudy Project helmet collection.

Integrated Airframe

The airframe frontal padding minimizes the sweating process inside the helmet enhancing the air circulation and avoiding the release of unpleasant smells and ensuring the best level of performance.

EPS In-Mold Construction

In-Mold technology allows us to cast the external polycarbonate outer shell directly during the injection stage of the expandable polystyrene (EPS) impact-absorbing foam. The result is a much more rigid structure which is knock-resistant and extremely light, allowing for better ventilation system. The combined action of the EPS structure, the polycarbonate cap and exo-skeleton creates resistance to the mechanical action exercised by an impact and dissipates the energy in order to prevent it from being transferred to the head of the person wearing the helmet.

High Visibility Colors

Riders safety is one of the main goal of Rudy Project. Our helmets and sunglasses are designed to provide the highest standard of performance and safety. All our lines are manufactured with finest materials while bright and fluorescent colors ensure perfect visibility on the road enhancing riders security and drawing drivers’ attention.

Hexocrush Technology

Originally inspired by conehead technology and developed be extremely lightweight, this entirely new structure is one of the most advanced Rudy Project solutions. And it is designed to maximize your safety by ensuring unprecedented level of security. The liner is molded with two different foam densities and the hexagon-shaped structure provides improved shock absorption by dissipating impact forces sideways and radially. Thus, the Hexocrush reduces the g-force pressure on the head in case of falls or impacts.

Vortex Killer System

The Vortex Killer System is designed to aid in the straightening of the airflow over the rear of the helmet. The scientific combination of the helmet geometry and the side vents helps in managing these vortex low pressure points which create drag and instability. Air is directed, through a proprietary channel system, over the neck and shoulder areas at a different rate or volume than the oncoming free air.

RSR10 Retention System

The lightweight yet resistant RSR 10 adjustable retention system provides perfect personal fit. thanks to its wraparound structure and multiple micro-metric vertical and horizontal positions for the size adjustment.
