KLIME F5 WITH KOROYD AND MIPS
Klim’s new F5 is now fit with two new features that help this incredibly light helmet become better equipped to handle G-force transmission and at redirecting rotational energy. Koroyd technology is installed in the inner liner, replacing EPS foam at the key impact areas. This Koroyd core excels at reducing peak G-force transmission while remaining ultra-light and porous. MIPS technology is all about rotation and the technology absorbs and redirects rotational energies and transferrable forces from angled impacts, effectively reducing rotational forces’ effects in the event of an angled impact. The Klime F5 features a full KLIM® KARBON Fiber shell and comes in S-XXXL fitments and includes a helmet bag, spare visor/peak and a breath box and WINDSTOPPER® liner for effective extreme cold temperature use. MSRP is $499.99.
