RuRoC Helmet Construction
Exploded view of the helmetThe basic helmet design uses two main sections made up of an internal liner (EPS) and a hard external shell (ABS). Multiple recessed pathways have been removed from the normally smooth EPS. This allows air to circulate and pass between this and the ABS external shell. Strategically located air intake apertures provide a constant source of forced air which is increased through motion giving the wearer more ventilation when they need it most.
Our fully interlocking Helmet, Goggles and Mask system, seamlessly integrating to provide the ultimate in protection and product innovation.
* Seamlessly integrating helmet, goggles and mask system

Front view showing airwaysAll RuRoc helmets provide improved head coverage and protection compared to conventional helmets, they also incorporate a unique ventilation system that perpetually circulates and replaces air within the helmet to minimize fogging and sweat inside the helmet when it is being worn.
The goggles are vented on all four sides (from above, below and to the sides), so that air can both enter and escape the goggles. Apertures are also positioned to the side of the lens for evacuating air from the sides of the helmet.
Forward (oncoming) air is driven into foam lined narrow venting gaps between the mask and the goggles. Oncoming air is also driven into a foam lined venting gap in the front/centre of the face mask. This air is forced up into the goggles from underneath and also out of the tunnel at either side of the helmet.
Side view showing airwaysAir behind the goggles is evacuated upwardly through vents in the brow of the goggles, and this evacuation of air is aided by air entering the brow of the goggles and flowing up into the ventilation system of the helmet shell. In other words, oncoming air is driven into the intakes of the goggles and upwardly into the exhaust channels of the helmet shell (from which it is then expelled though vents in the first outer shell section, thereby causing a vacuum which sucks air into the ventilation system of the helmet shell (from both head of the wearer and the region between the front of the helmet and the face of the wearer). Thus, the ventilation system perpetually circulates and replaces air within the helmet to minimizing fogging and sweat inside the helmet when it is being worn.
