CONTEST NOW CLOSED. The winner of the Alpina Helmet and Glasses Pack is Pinkbike user Nybis .

Congratulations Nybis

Prize Details:
Be the first to wear the unique Rootage EVO from ALPINA! The German brand ALPINA has more than 40 years of experience in the field of helmets, goggles and sports glasses. The new jet helmet will not be on the market until spring 2021, but you can already win it now! Not half, not completely and yet: perfect. The jet helmet Rootage EVO offers more protection than a normal enduro helmet, but is lighter and more variable than a full-face helmet. The three-quarter helmet is the golden mean.

Whether on the trail, freeriding or with the E-Fully in the bike park. The Rootage EVO is a good choice. The helmet construction pulled over the ears offers significantly more safety, especially on side impacts. In addition, the EPP, a multi-density material used on the ears, which does not lose its protective effect after smaller impacts, is also used in the rear area of the helmet. This also makes it possible to wear a neck brace. The fixed shield directs the air into the helmet‘s large ventilation ducts and thus cools the head. The Rootage EVO is the first bike jet helmet with size adjustment system. Protection, comfort and flow are guaranteed with the Rootage EVO.

Bigger, lighter, better, RAM. The new enduro glasses from ALPINA are a visual highlight and fit perfectly to the Rootage EVO. The unique design, the modern style and the lightness in both design and weight make the ALPINA RAM more than just a pair of performance glasses. The RAM is available in a half frame and full frame version as well with the photochromatic Varioflex technology.


The prize pack includes:
• Rootage EVO helmet
• RAM Sports glasses
• MSRP: €259.90 // Approx $300 USD

 I don't personally get these 3/4 shell helmets. If you're riding rowdy enough trails to need extra protection, a full face covers the ears, as well as depriving a dentist of his new Yeti. If the trail isn't serious enough to need face protection or maybe it's just hot, wear a normal lid. Isn't a 3/4 totally the worst of both worlds?

 Think of it as improving your average protection level. 3/4 helmets like this are targeted to be worn instead of pure half shells.

Pretty much every ride i find myself in sections where a full face would be advisable but those sections are less than 5% of the total ride. I wont wear a full face on that ride but would wear this and maybe keep it on the safer side on line choice but every once in a while you get unlucky...

Also cheek bars are not without their own problems, there are reasons DH skiers and ski jumpers don´t use them but on the other hand they hopefully never have to deal with rocks and stumps and such.

 @BikesBoatsNJeeps: no joke I was at LBS the other day and a dude in scrubs pulls up to pick up a bike in service. Out comes a Yeti. Had myself a little PB laugh.

 @swellhunter: I enjoy the dentist stereotype as much as anyone, but Yetis are so expensive in the UK that you probaly need to be a hedge fund manager to buy one.

 @rrolly: I can see it now “hey doc that’s a sweet Yeti. Would you mind if I got a photo of you with it so I could show all my friends that are huge fans and one day aspire to ride one?”

The stereotype is hilarious and 100% true but the reality is they are nice bikes and they sponsor Laura Slavin who is a really good rider from here in NJ. For that reason alone Yeti gets my vote. Still worth a laugh when a doc still in scrubs picks his up.

 Have you ever fallen on your ears?? It's an unbelievable pain

(i believe... never happened to me, though)

 Have you tried one though? As always fit is key... but once I tried on the Fox Dropframe, I couldn't get over how nice it felt... its like... it just cradles your skull. It feels good.... All personal preference. For me, I think that little bit of extra protection is nice... but how it fit and felt was the biggest seller.

 my switchblade in open face mode is the perfect fall/winter helmet. I've used it a lot in italian summer enduro tours as well where a full face would be unbearable and a half lid gives you a sketchy feel. An open face helmet with goggle gives you much more of a secure feel but you can still breathe properly.

 Can we talk about how they say its compatible with a neck brace? There's some smart as people on here with more knowledge than I've got but would rocking this with a neckbrace not just place an object to lever your neck over if impacted sideways or forwards?
