(October 21; Santa Cruz, California) Answering the demands of the next generation of skiers and snowboarders, Giro® is now shipping the CombynTM helmet and is accompanied by a new product specific landing page. The new website landing page brings together the backstory behind the R&D on the Combyn from Giro product designers, athlete stories and seamless compatible goggle lockups like the Giro Onset & Blok while introducing visitors to Giro's ski and snowboard team riders through a unique collection of athlete photos and videos.
"We designed the new Combyn helmet for park and pipe riding where repeated impacts are the price of progression," said Giro Sr. Vice President Greg Shapleigh. "Giro is uniquely positioned to match snow sports' rapid progression with equally advanced protection while maintaining the style that shows our core mission as a sport design company. And, it's with that same enthusiasm that we launch this new landing page to align our riders' stories with the product story."
The Combyn employs a patent-pending, impact-absorbing liner made with dual density Vinyl Nitrile (VN) foam. The liner features two distinct layers of foam that allow the helmet to manage both high- and low-energy impacts across a wide range of temperatures. Unlike traditional expanded polystyrene (EPS) or expanded polypropylene (EPP) helmet liners, the VN material is soft and flexible. When matched with a proprietary shell material, originally developed for football and hockey helmets, the result is a helmet that delivers a comfortable and flexible fit with unmatched durability.
