Design, Build, and Parts of the EX-ZERO Helmet
AIM Exterior Shell
For the exterior shell of the EX-ZERO, its made of AIM or Advanced Integrated Matrix. Its composed of organic fiber and multiple layers of glass fiber. The biggest advantage of AIM is that it absorbs impact while offering a hard yet elastic shell.
For the interior of the SHOEI EX-ZERO, its made of EPS or expanded polystyrene. It features 3D Full Support Inner central padding and multiple layers of polyurethane.
The internal padding varies in density to provide optimal protection by having different impact absorption levels. With that, all areas of the helmet stay protected. The earpads are thicker to isolate external noise that usually distracts riders.
The interior lining of this helmet is completely removable for easy cleaning. The cheek pads feature the EQRS to make these easy to pull out in case of an emergency.
To prevent the loose end from flapping, the EX-ZERO features a Double-D fastener with a plastic popper. The micrometric buckle is not only stylish, but it’s also easy to unbuckle even when wearing gloves.
