Protos® Integral Helmets, why the price?
PROTOS ® – from ancient Greek, THE FIRST – is the first integral protective helmet of its kind. The Protos Integral Helmet was more then12-years in development process aimed at integrating ear, face and neck protection, with a chinstrap and rear ventilation between the inner and outer shell.
Thanks to its certifications according to the EN 397 and EN 12492 standards, the “Protos® Integral System can be used for forestry, tree care and climbing in a matter of seconds. Chin strap, visor, neck protection, ear protection – everything is integrated and modular at the same time.
10x more safety
1/10 Large field of view
Largest field of view compared to all tested helmets on the market with maximum visibility all round, when working in tight areas.
2/10 Neck protection
The neck protection shell protects the back of the head in case of falls and impact and averts the risk of skull base fracture. Always a bonus
3/10 Improved safety
The sporty 2-color combination offers a 35% larger visible area. The thus significantly increased visibility provides the wearer with a great advantage in poor visibility conditions (leaves, coniferous forest, sunlight, etc.) in all seasons.
4/10 Shock absorption
The special damping structure (3-point suspension and shock absorber) of the inner shell dampens shocks and prevents transmission directly to the head or spine.
5/10 Impact protection
For the first time, with certification to EN 397 and EN 12492, Protos® can offer protection against not only vertical, but also horizontal shocks. This results in a new type of “all-round protection”.
6/10 Inner shell
Its sophisticated inner shell ensures that the helmet fits you like a glove. In case of impact, the energy is distributed over a large area and absorbed.
7/10 Additional Protection
Since the ear protection is always located at the head, in both the active and the passive state, it also provides additional impact protection.
8/10 Safety ventilation gate
The safety ventilation gate provides multiple safety features where they really count. Horizontal and vertical shocks are absorbed by the additional shell before forces can act on the main helmet.
5-layer shock absorption with CrashAbsorber technology. The Koroyd energy absorption insert consists of 95 % air and offers fully ventilated protection. The CrashAbsorber makes the effects of impacts visible and indicates when the wearer should replace the protection.
10/10 Protective glasses
Protos® Integral protective glasses offer unsurpassed mechanical stability at extreme temperatures from -5°C – +55°C. I The position of the glasses can be individually adjusted to any head shape. The glasses are clipped to the head band so that they are always there. The active or passive state can be changed with just two fingers in no time.
10x more comfort
1/10 Integrated ear protection
Thanks to the integrated ear protection, there are no protruding attachments to get caught by branches. The contact pressure on the ear muff hearing protection mounting can be precisely adjusted.
2/10 Integrated face protection
2 major advantages of the integrated face protection: Working without getting caught on branches or thorns and maximum all-round visibility.
3/10 Neck shell
Improved fit and grip with a large adjustable neck shell. The helmet is therefore securely fitted on your head even without a chin strap.
4/10 Active ventilation
The design enables active ventilation. The ventilation ducts on the upper side can be opened or closed with a slide. The helmet can thus be set to hot/cold/damp weather.
5/10 Special chin strap guide
In order to ensure that the chin strap does not slip under the ear protection, we have fitted a guide tab to the neck shell. Wearing comfort and noise absorption are thus not adversely affected.
6/10 Klima-AIR® Technology
Outstanding sweat transport with large replaceable pad inserts with Klima-AIR Technology.
7/10 Size adjustment
With the patented size adjustment, the helmet can be easily pulled on and off by activating or deactivating the neck shell. Once a size has been set, it will remain so, which means that no readjustment is necessary.
8/10 2 Finger operable
All functions available with just 2 fingers. The same applies to the ear protection that can be fitted in an activated state to the integrated shell between head and helmet.
9/10 KlimaAIR® Set
The complete KlimaAIR® set can be removed and is machine washable at max. 30°C. For hygiene reasons, we recommend washing the main support pads regularly and replacing them after 2-3 years at the latest.
10/10 perfect communications
Perfect communication despite large distances and noisy environments. The 3M™ Peltor™communication solutions make it possible.
