in-Mold ConstructionThe standard for ultra-lightweight performance helmets, it is characterized by an EPS liner that is bonded to a lightweight PC shell by means of a distinct molding process. As with the Hard Shell construction, the lightweight EPS liner forms the inner layer of the helmet and is constructed from expanded polystyrene (EPS) beads expanded to the shape of the helmet. The EPS is then wrapped by the polycarbonate (PC) shell in the In-Mold to form a clean protective envelope that is vacuum-formed paper thin to minimize weight.
K2dialed Fit SystemThe K2dialed Fit System customizes the fit of your helmet for the ultimate in comfort and adjustability. The K2dialed unit is integral to our helmets and conforms to the shape of your head for a secure overall fit. An ergonomically inspired three-point adjustable interface maximizes stability and customization for different head shapes and goggle sizes. The result of the K2dialed Fit System is a helmet with a customized fit just for you.
Passive Channel VentingThe EPS liner is perforated with chimney and channel venting. The channels interconnect with the chimney vents to move air from your head to exhaust vents out the back. The result is a clean, vent-free look that offers effective symmetric ventilation around your entire head.
Universal Fit ShapeNot everyone has the same head shape, but we’ve got you covered with our Universal Fit Shape. Over the last year, we’ve worked tirelessly to create the most comfortable and stable fit between oval and round head shapes; the result is the next evolution in fit without compromise to comfort and overall aesthetics. Our revolutionary Universal Fit Shape combined with the K2dialed Fit System is designed to fit your unique shape so you feel an ergonomically seamless and comfortable fit regardless of your head shape.
Continuous UnderlayerA full-coverage, washable liner that breathes where you need it to while snugly cradling your head for a secure and comfortable fit on every K2 helmet. On helmets that come with our K2dialed Fit System and K2 Baseline Audio, the Continuous Underlayer is seamlessly integrated with these systems for the ultimate experience. You don’t wear boots without socks, so why would you wear a helmet without a liner?
