With the Alpha-2 Aerospeed aero helmet we introduce the successor of the very first speedskating specific helmet for long distances in the world, the Cádomotus Alpha. The Alpha-2 is safer, fits even better, and remains the skating helmet that sets the standard.
The introduction of the Alpha helmet in 2015, ran in sync with the call for more safety in marathon skating as well as in the mass-start for long track speed skating. It was the beginning of a revolution. The skating helmet has now become a part of the ice rink and many recreational and experienced ice lovers make use of it. Just like in the cycling and inline skating community, ice skaters have begun to transition to always wearing a helmet when skating.
What's new with the Alpha-2?
The Alpha-2 skate helmet has been further developed:
* We have designed the back of the helmet to be rounder
* It is more aerodynamic and fashionable
* The rounder shape provides more protection for the back of the head
* Available in two sizes: S/M (54-57cm) and M/L (58-62cm)
* Similar to our top model, the Omega, you can easily click a visor on the helmet with magnets
* If you do not want a visor for your eyes, it will click right onto your helmet
* The larger ventilation openings in the back of the helmet have been replaced by several small ventilation slots
* By doing this, it offers more protection for falls in skating
* Still very light and comfortable in terms of fit
Make the helmet yours with a customizable aeroshield
You can make this skate helmet completely yours by adding an aeroshield in your favorite color, which you can easily attach to your helmet and give yourself an aerodynamic advantage. With the colored shields you can match your friends, show your personality, represent your teams/club colors and so much more!
Officially approved helmet
This is still one of the few officially approved skating helmets by the ISU. According to the rules, the helmet must follow the shape of the head and there must be no protrusions on the helmet. At the same time, it must comply with an impact test for short-track helmets. Virtually all bicycle helmets are therefore unsuitable for marathon skating, including most of the helmets which were used on the ice rink last season. This skating helmet is also suitable as a short track helmet.
