Mission complete. The helmet range completes the ION MTB protection portfolio from head to toe. Together with long-standing industry specialist MET, we developed the first range of ION helmets for every aspect of mountain bike riding – from city pump tracks to alpine trails & fast descents.
You will find that our ION mountain bike helmets come in different levels concerning pricing and features. The different levels will give you an indication on which model to choose:
SELECT: Our top-notch level with premium materials and features
AMP: Maximum performance for a good price
CORE: Entry level & minimalistic
Please note: The level does not affect the safety level & quality of the helmet. All ION helmets fulfill the mandatory CE-certification for mountain bike helmets. The Traze Amp MIPS® helmet even exceeds all the worldwide certifications and performs best at both linear and rotational impacts.
DO I NEED DIFFERENT HELMETS FOR EACH RIDING STYLE?
Your exposure to risks and applicability determines which level of coverage you need. Full face helmets are targeted to gravity-oriented use with a high level of risk & an often more hazardous environment (rocks, higher drops, etc.). Half-shell MTB helmets on the other hand, offer more breathability and an open face since which makes them more applicable for tours, mellow trails & pedaling.
Mountain bike helmets are specialized for high-speed impacts from bigger heights & offers more coverage than normal cycle helmets.
WHY SHOULD I WEAR AN MTB HELMET?
Let’s be honest: we love pushing the boundaries & seeking the thrill. However, that wouldn’t be possible without our most valuable asset – our brains. We believe that pushing yourself & protection go hand-in-hand. That’s why protection lies deep within our brand DNA. Your helmet is the first and single-most important part of your protective equipment and you will never see a real mountain biker riding without one.
HOW SHOULD MY MOUNTAIN BIKE HELMET FIT?
The right fit is essential to get the most protection out of your helmet. To find your right size, follow the measuring instruction below and note the right measuring point.
Half shell helmets can be adjusted in circumference through their fit system on the back.
Full face helmets have less margin for adjustments but come with different foam thicknesses to adjust the fit on the inside.
On both helmet types, you should tighten your chin straps so far that it doesn’t slip over your chin. Additional cheek pads for full face are available here.
Met has been making cycling helmets for over 30 years. Due to their specialisation in helmets, they ensure the absolute highest standards of quality and safety every time. Since ever - ION has developed technical, award-winning body armor for all riding styles. Protection is in our brand DNA.
