WIND TUNNEL TESTING SESSION
With 50 years of Formula 1 experience, Swissside has revolutionized the cycling industry with unmatched aerodynamic and engineering knowledge. Swissside conducted the enclosed wind tunnel study to prove the performance of the entire Rudy Project helmet collection.
The Flip Up system offers a unique and removable shield interface for full wraparound visual protection, enhanced flow dynamics and atmospheric management minimizing eye strain. The practical magnetic flip-up system will ease you when putting the helmet on, while cutting fog and maximizing cooling during long rides.
UNIVERSAL DORSAL RIDGE
Inspired by sharks, the dorsal ridge helps converting sideways force into a forward force, like it was a long tailed helmet. It gives more surface only when it is necessary, as with a cross wind, while it remains small for less frontal area effect.
EPS IN-MOLD CONSTRUCTION
In-Mold technology allows us to cast the external polycarbonate outer shell directly during the injection stage of the expandable polystyrene (EPS) impact-absorbing foam. The result is a much more rigid structure which is knock-resistant and extremely light, allowing for better ventilation system. The combined action of the EPS structure, the polycarbonate cap and exo-skeleton creates resistance to the mechanical action exercised by an impact and dissipates the energy in order to prevent it from being transferred to the head of the person wearing the helmet.
VORTEX KILLER SYSTEM
The Vortex Killer System is designed to aid in the straightening of the airflow over the rear of the helmet. The scientific combination of the helmet geometry and the side vents helps in managing these vortex low pressure points which create drag and instability. Air is directed, through a proprietary channel system, over the neck and shoulder areas at a different rate or volume than the oncoming free air.
Riders safety is one of the main goal of Rudy Project. Helmets, sunglasses and our bikewear collection are designed to provide the highest standard of performance and safety. All our lines are manufactured with finest materials while bright and fluorescent colours ensure perfect visibility on the road enhancing riders security and drawing drivers’ attention
