The TSG STATUS bike helmet. be safe. be seen.

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Be visible on the streets!

Our Status bike helmet makes cycling in the city safer and more comfortable.

The detachable LED light at the back of the helmet guarantees safety in the dark and bad conditions, while reflective straps and stickers provide additional visibility. At the same time the new reflect color makes the entire helmet reflective: In daylight the helmet shimmers at unobtrusive grey-silver but starts to glow in bad visibility or when illuminated by headlights.

Lightweight design

The helmet’s low-fit design with deep side panels covers the entire head without being too flashy; and weighing only 330g the Status is a real featherweight. TSG has revised the classic skate design for the Status: The more square-edged and aerodynamic design with new vents is perfect for everyday use on the streets. The Status perfectly matches a business suit as well as casual clothes.

Comfort

Thanks to the Dial-Fit System the Status can be adjusted to any head shape. Soft, premium pads on the inside of the helmet absorb moisture and can be washed easily; each helmet comes with two sets.

ladies and gentlemen, we present VEP

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

We have a great new protection foam that we are using from now on in some of our pads. It is called VEP and offers a super accurate fit with supreme wearing comfort, outstanding damping capabilities and great flexibility, while providing reliable protection against penetrating objects.
Profiting from the new material technology are the Nose Dives Timo, 2nd Skins, Kneeguard Task, Kneeguard Slim, and Frag Shirt Advanced.

Soft and pre-shaped 3D protection pads adapt to your body features and anatomy through body heat, and they don’t slip either. This is achieved through our horseshoe shape, which entirely wraps your upper elbows and knees.

VEP is visco-elastic and thus, can handle multiple impacts. After an impact or shock from the outside, the protection pad returns to its original shape while retaining all of its functionality features. In case of a slow application of a force, the VEP material absorbs the impact energy through gentle cushioning, whereas in case of a crash – meaning high-velocity force effect – the foam yields only slightly. Why? Because the air in the cell structure remains locked in within the foam and thus, cannot escape so quickly. This is how a relatively thin and extremely lightweight material like VEP offers premium damping performance. Plus, VEP reacts without time delays in order to minimize strain on the body.

VEP’s 10 years lifespan is considerably longer than the one of other foam pads. And VEP can handle temperatures of up to 120°C, guaranteeing optimum protection even when your equipment is left in the car behind the rear window.

In order to prevent sharp stones or other objects from penetrating the foam in case of a fall, we use an additional elastic synthetic insert for all VEP pads. The insert is extremely flexible to avoid a limitation of the soft protector’s mobility. The synthetic insert is Velcro-fixed onto the VEP pad and can easily be removed from all protectors which feature a removable VEP pad.

Practically, the wearer can’t make any mistakes with the Arctic Kraken, he or she does not even have to make adjustments. The helmet automatically adjusts to the wearer’s head. Just put it on and enjoy its outstanding comfort.
