Helmets: Samshield & KEP

Helmets

Samshield

For every Samshield helmet, any part can be made in a material of your choosing: the shell, the top, the visor, the trim and the logo at the front. Several gorgeous and unique materials are available, and the top can be decorated with a variety of decorations like Swarovski elements or embroidery. The standard Samshield model has a standard visor, while the Miss Shield model has a wide visor with a decorative band at the front. The outer shell of a Samshield helmet is made of polycarbonate, which is a material used, among other things, for high-end motorcycle helmets. It is covered with anti-scratch painting. The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density, providing a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact. The internal comfort foam, “shape memory”-kind, ensures a constant thickness over the years of use and the semi-rigid jugular cancels all risks of tipping the helmet in case of a violent movement. This internal comfort foam is removable thanks to a strong clip system. It can therefore be washed at will in order to constantly be able to wear a clean and fragrant-free helmet. A thorough anthropomorphic study led to design an inner-shell form generating an unmatched comfort. Equipped with a front air inlet, Samshield helmets provide exceptional ventilation. Fresh air is channeled from the front entrance to the back extractors around comfort foam which prevents the rider from sweating. This concept generates a strong internal airflow avoiding the need for visible and unsightly air inlets: the equestrian’s elegance is retained without banishing technicality and comfort. This is what makes Samshield equestrian helmets so popular, safe and unique!

For each Samshield helmet, 3 shell sizes are available: S, M, L. Each shell can accommodate 4 to 5 inner foams of different sizes in order to obtain a perfect adjustment to the rider’s head. The size grid is available from 52 to 61. With this system, it is also possible to follow the growth of a young rider.

KEP Italia

For every KEP Italia helmet, any part can be made in a material of your choosing: the shell, the front, the back, the visor, the grill, the frame and the logo at the front. Several gorgeous and unique materials are available, and several parts of the helmet can be decorated with a variety of decorations like Swarovski elements or special leather types. Features that are typical for KEP Italia equestrian helmets are safety first and foremost, lightness and comfort, as well as the aesthetic value. The KEP helmet is perfect for all disciplines and is fitted with a flexible visor, front grill with inner protective, steel mesh and KEP air control system that ensures optimal ventilation by controlling the internal temperature and circulation of the air, which flows through special channels in the polystyrene. The helmet has an eco-leather chin strap in the color of the shell, with five attachment points to the shell of the helmet. Lastly, this helmet is provided with an internal Coolmax lining for maximum breathability and comfort. This liner is detachable and can be washed by hand in cold water or in the machine at 30°C. This is what makes KEP Italia equestrian helmets so popular, safe and unique!

For each KEP Italia helmet, 2 shell sizes are available: M, L. Each shell can accommodate 4 to 8 inner foams of different sizes in order to obtain a perfect adjustment to the rider’s head. The size grid is available from 51 to 62. With this system, it is also possible to follow the growth of a young rider.
