The overall design of this product impressed the judges but also was commendable for its versatility to meet a wide variety of helmet specifications, while also catering for future requirements. It is obviously the result of considerable design evolution while including significant further product development. At its heart is a high quality, well-engineered chassis component which requires                                a very complex mould.
