DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Z2 and Z3 Ski and Snowboard Helmets

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Snow Helmets

INSPIRATION:
The helmet is been designed as a response of the need of a very light and comfortable helmet, and at the same time safe and reliable, especially in a sport where it’s a common concept to dare and go beyond limits. Every single helmet is handcrafted, using Italian skilled labor, respecting the philosophy of the fully made in Italy product. The helmets are accurate in every detail, with innovative color combinations, stylish graphics, colorful and fashionable lines.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Z2 and Z3 are a family of winter helmets designed to be suited for both skiers and snowboarders. Z2 is a helmet with hard ear coverage while Z3 is the version with soft ear pads; two different versions for better performance and acoustic comfort. Z2 and Z3 are sanitized trough an antimicrobial process, which protects against bacteria and fungus. The graphics are unique and customizable. The coating system is environmentally friendly. The Helmets come with quick release visor.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Z2 and Z3 helmets are distinguished by ergonomic studies that allow the correct and most grip performance of the helmets to the user's head. So while helmets are being used the level of protection increase. The buckle comes with micrometric adjustment and that allows an optimal use in any situation, ensuring the adhesion and the better fit of the helmets. The quick release visor offers maximum freedom to the athlet and allows maximum protection from the elements and UV rays.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project of Z2 Helmet started in 2015 and finished in January 2016, and was exhibited in ISPO MUNICH 2016. The project of Z3 helmet started in 2016 and finished in January 2017, and was exhibited in ISPO MUNICH 2017.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The external shell is made of carbon fiber stratified composite or also made of thermoplastic and the inner shell is made of polystyrene foam with a ventilated structure. The visors are molded and treated with an anti-scratch process. The soft cheeks and the ear pads are made of thermoformed material and faux leather. The padding is made of microfiber fabric with Microsense technology. The decals, entirely applied by hand, give to the helmets of HMR Helmets a fierce and recognizable design.

The helmets have approximately these dimensions: 220 mm x 230 mm x 210 mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design of a helmet is one of the most important aspects of our work, for this we cooperate with the Massimo Facchinetti designer’s studio. HMR Helmets creates their helmets based on three principles: safety, innovation and sanitation. Starting from the brief, we first transfer the ideas on paper and then we create a style prototype. The model is then analyzed aesthetically and functionally and, with a process of reverse engineering, we made all the setups necessary for the final approval.

CHALLENGE:
The design activity, in coordination with the manufacturer, has resulted in a helmet made of innovative materials, with characteristic and recognizable design, such as the use of the shield logo in the shaping of the back extractor, in line with standards approval procedure which guarantee the maximum possible protection. The graphics are deliberately minimal and "stretched"; to accentuate the sporty look of the models, in harmony with the inflection lines of the ventilation system of the helmets.
