Alpinestars get ahead
Alpinestars have released their own helmet: the Supertech M10. Utilising a carbon shell construction and a microadjustable pad, MIPS, as well as a patented visor release mechanism, the helmet is said to help reduce rotational impact injuries. It’s just the off-road helmet for now but we wouldn’t be surprised if a road model follows.
It has been tested by American supercross riders throughout 2018 and the firm now feels ready to out it on sale. It’s not cheap, at around £500, so a road version could be close to £600.
