The production off Simpson helmets takes 3 days, 50 separate processes, 50 quality control checks.

Helmet construction is coordinated in three separate processes: (1) the outer shell; (2) the BeadAll liner; (3) the inner liner, padding, and hardware. All helmets with the #8 after the model name have a NOMEX interior all helmets with the #7 after the model name have a NYLON interior.

Shell constructionShell construction begins with prototype design and testing. These are all hand processes. It may take years to develop a model that's put into production. When a design is finalized, custom-designed nickel molds each costing $15.000 a piece are built. Construction of the outer shell begins with a thin layer of gelcoat. Several laminating and curing steps follow, each with it's own quality checks. Simpson uses a custom-formulated resin: special glasses, including E-glass, carbon fiber, and Kevlar; plus other exotic fibers and weaves.BeadAll LinerThe liner in the crown or top of the helmet is the second line of defense. It's a job to absorb as much of the remaining energy as possible on primary and multiple impacts. Helmet liner materials over the past 20 year have been manufactured of polystyrene. Simpson pioneered the use of polypropylene and was the first to successfully mold it into a helmet. No small feat. It was known how to make flat sheets, but the technology for curved forms was undeveloped. Simpson developed a method to eliminate the gap between the shell and the liner. It was worth the effort. BeadAll, the polypropylene liner developed by Simpson, demonstrated it could reduce impact energy in the crown or top of the helmet. To get a personal demonstration of the difference between BeadAll and other foam, stick your fingernail into both. It'll make a permanent dent in polystyrene. The BeadAll liner will return to normal (attenuation). That's important when absorbing multiple impacts. The repeatability combined with superior impact absorption gives BeadAll its edge.Interior liners - Nomex or nylon, cheekpads, chinstraps, and hardware

While the outer shell and BeadAll liner are being constructed, the form-fitting inner liners, cheekpads, chinstraps, hardware, visors, self-extinguishing rubber are being manufactured and readied at the Simpson factory. Each inner Liner is constructed to fit precisely into each of Simpson's 20-plus helmet models. Some models are offered with an inner liner or either Nylon (suffix "7" i.e. Voyager 7) or Nomex (suffix "8" i.e. Voyager 8). Nylon is a manmade synthetic fabric that demonstrated excellent comfort and wear resistance but no fire resistance. The Nomex fabric used in Simpson Helmets also demonstrates excellent comfort and wear resistance, with the addition of fire resistant properties.

Nomex only by Dupont

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIDENCE

What's one without the other? Nomex thermal technology manages the extremes of heat yet still delivers incredible durability and comfort - giving you the performance you want with the peace of mind that only Nomex delivers.

This high temperature resistant, man-made fiber will not sustain combustion in air and will not melt in the presence of flames. When exposed to intense heat, Nomex carbonizes and becomes thicker to provide a protective barrier between the heat source and the skin. This performance gives the wearer more time to escape the dangers of a life threatening flash fire. No amount of laundering, or wear and tear, can remove the flame resistance from apparel made of Nomex brand fiber. Nomex has a 30 year track record of successfully protecting wearers in a number of different occupations. From traditionally styled workwear for refinery, chemical plant and electric utility employees, to multi-layer garment systems for military jet pilots, firefighters, and race car drivers and their pit crews, Nomex takes the heat head on and enables the wearer to focus on the task at hand. In some jobs, what you wear can save your life. With its proven reliability and heritage, you can be secure knowing that Nomex will perform when it needs to so you can perform when you need to.

 

SIMPSON'S ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIE (SAT).

For the new millenium, Simpson introduces several significant breakthroughs in the application of advanced technologies and space age materials.

Although Simpson helmet technology continues to advance and break barriers, the one thing that hasn't changed is the fit and function you're accustomed to from Simpson. Simpson offers a helmet for every type of racer and every type of racing. Take a close look at your helmet and compare. At Simpson, you do the racin', we do the rest.

The following technological advancements are offered on models throughout the Simpson helmet line. Look for these advanced technologies on the model you select

T-38 ULTRALIGHT TECHNOLOGY

Simpson's advanced materials and helmet manufacturing process that substantially reduces overall helmet weight. Now standard on all Simpson Helmets at no additional charge.

AIR SUPERIORITY

A two stage air induction system that splits forced air at the source into separate airflows to: (1) Reduce shield fogging (2) Circulate fresh air around the head and exhaust warm moist air from a ventilator on the crown.

VUDO Virtual Unlimited Downforce Options

The VUDO is the lightest, high technology helmet ever manufactured by Simpson with no performance compromise. The VUDO incorporates the latest Aerodynamic Counter Measures or ACM in the shell exterior design including:

VENTILATOR HOOD Positioned on the crown of the helmet. The Ventilator Hood assists with interior helmet cooling while directing airflow to the Wing/Foil.
WING/FOIL The infinitely adjustable foil intercepts high speed ambient air flow to create downforce - eliminating lift and buffeting.
CHIME The molded downforce chime is an extension at the base of the chinbar that captures the air that contacts the front of the helmet (forehead down) as it flows downward toward the chin. This airflow creates pressure on the Chime and pushes the helmet down counteracting lift.
CHIN CURTAIN Positioned under the chinbar. The soft fabric curtain seals the area under the chin preventing airflow from lifting the helmet from within the base. At the same time preventing dust and debris from entering the helmet. .
COLORS: White, Unfinished (for custom painting), Black & Platinum (extra charge).
Superlight T-38 construction, under 1360 grams.

Strategically placed Titanium Reinforcement in helmet shell

Total cool air circulation system with adjustable forehead vents and air ram ducts.
Complete with two .125" Lexan shields (smoke & Clear)
Simpson's exclusive impact absorbing one-peace BeadAll liner with form fitting Nomex lining.
Twin Shield tabs.
