720, a company from Bozen, Italy, is trying to significantly increase a helmet's safety by replacing the inner structure with large hexagonal elastomers, or as they also call the material, high energy absorption polymers (H.E.A.P.). That HexaGo technology provides more than twice the shock absorption of EN requirements.To put this in perspective, the maximum allowed g-force value according to the EN standard is 250g, the average helmet has crash results around 175g and Seventwenty helmets go down to about 115g. Due to the flexible nature of the elastomers, and only being fixed to the outside shell at four locations, rotational forces are also being handled well.
The mountain bike helmet Awake 1.0 is available in a glossy (€199) or matte (€219) version in sizes M and L. Weighing close to 500g, the Awake 1.0 might not be the lightest, but looks to be one of the safest helmets out there.
Various shell and elastomer color combinations are available.AbusTSGSena
