X-STATIC®delivers superior antimicrobial and anti-odor performance.
Pure Silver. Superior Performance.
For more than 2,000 years, silver has been used for its antimicrobial properties in everything from drinking vessels to military field dressings. Now, with their superior technology, X-STATIC®delivers the benefits of silver to textiles, and for SCOTT in particular to helmet paddings. This allows SCOTT helmets to offer best in class antimicrobial and anti-odor performance.
X-STATIC® is made by permanently bonding 99.9% pure metallic silver to the surface of the fiber. Not a nanotechnology or a complex chemical formula, just natural silver. Leading edge X-STATIC® fibers and fabrics deliver 100% surface area of silver to maximize performance, yet they remain soft and flexible.
The next level of cooling and safety.
At SCOTT our mission is to protect your head. While our focus on the Centric PLUS and Cadence PLUS was to bring next level cooling and speed to bike helmets, we never lost focus on protection. The integrated MIPS® Brain Protection System brings the latest in safety technology while the SCOTT AIR Technology, a unique construction of the MIPS® system using micro perforations, adds breathability and enhanced cooling – the results are rather impressive.
MIPS® with SCOTT AIR technology outperforms the cooling performance of a standard MIPS® liner by up to 16%. Further testing showed that the integration of SCOTT AIR technology enabled both the Centric PLUS and the Cadence PLUS to achieve better cooling than wearing no helmet at all.
Strategically placed outer vents connects to extensive inner cooling channels.
MIPS® is a unique technology intended to protect your brain against angular impacts.
If you are seeking the best protection that money can buy then look no further. Scott helmets with integrated MIPS® brain protection system offer a whole new dimension in safety. No matter where or how you ride, choose a SCOTT helmet and Elevate Your Safety !
Conventional helmets are tested by dropping them vertically onto a solid surface. They are designed to protect you from straight / radial impacts. For over 15 years, MIPS has researched how people crash in the real world. Collaborating with some of the world's leading neurosurgeons and experts, MIPS® has established that when you fall, your head most often hits the ground at an angle, creating a rotational shock to the brain1. This rotational shock can cause strain in your brain. A helmet with MIPS® absorbs much of that rotational energy, offering you better protection. And if, against all the odds, you do fall vertically onto your head, a SCOTT helmet with MIPS® will protect you just as well as an ordinary helmet.
The Brain is suspended in a low friction cerebrospinal fluid which allows your brain to slide within your skull to protect the brain under impact. MIPS® Brain Protection System is a unique technology intended to protect your brain against angled impacts by imitating the brains natural low friction, barrier, thereby reducing the shock transmitted to your brain. Under angled impact the helmet slides on the MIPS® low friction layer minimizing the rotational violence transfered to the brain.
The Team ORICA-GreenEDGE asked SCOTT engineers for a helmet with the lowest drag coefficient possible.
SCOTT engineers worked with Team ORICA-GreenEDGE to determine a clear set of objectives when designing a Split Aero helmet.
The Team asked for a helmet with the lowest drag coefficient possible, an advenced optical solution, a fully integrated visor, a dynamic ventilation system, and of course an adjustable, comfortable fit.
We made it.
