Traveling at faster speeds, Class 3 eVehicles need a helmet that is unique in structure, yet stylish enough to wear on and off the road. The XNITO helmet in the answer for both style and safety. While still lightweight in design, our helmet can withstand impact at the higher speeds of these vehicles—offering superior protection through our innovative technology.
The helmet passes NTA 8776 certification, which is rated to protect riders up to 28 mph. Perfect for people who own Class 3 electric vehicles and for anyone who wants superior head protection day or night.
More coverage at the temple and the back of the head with better impact absorption materials. Passes NTA 8776 certification, which is rated for speeds up to 28 mph (45 km/h).
Ride safely at night with waterproof front and rear LED lights. Up to 10 hours of battery life with 3 flashing modes and USB charging. Safe in any weather.
Aerodynamic design with 10 strategically placed vents for maximum airflow. Weighs only 0.83 lb (376 g), alleviating neck fatigue on longer trips.
The Dutch NTA 8776 standard regulates the design and safety of helmets for eVehicles like ebikes that go up to 28 mph (45 km/h). The United States relies on the CPSC standard created in the 1970s, which only requires protection for riding speeds up to 15 mph. Even with MIPS enhancement, you only get a 10% increase in protection for rotational shear impact, while the NTA 8776 standard provides an 87% increase in overall protection.
XNITO helmet offers more protection at the temple, where the bone is thinner and blood vessels are at greater risk of being damaged.
XNITO helmet has greater coverage area on the back of the head, offering more protection to the neck and brainstem.
The NTA EPS shell has 10% more impact-tested coverage around the two most sensitive parts of the skull: the temples and the brain stem. Not only does the NTA 8776 standard protect you at higher speeds but it protects more of your head as well.
The NTA certification is the world’s first safety standard developed specifically for Ebike riders. The Dutch NTA 8776 standard has yet to hit the US market, but it is already considered the safest standard for e-bike riders. The Dutch NTA standard protects people at speeds up to 28 mph (45 km/h). Not only that, but it covers more of the surface of the head than US standards, and focuses on extra protection to the frontal and occipital lobes of the brain. We are launching our XNITO helmet simply because ebike riders are dangerously underprotected.
The CPSC standard is the government standard. The criteria was created in the 1970s, and was adopted and mandated by the CPSC in 1994. Any helmet sold in the US must pass the CPSC standard, which isnt exactly hard to do. In order to pass, the helmet must be dropped from a height of two meters onto a flat anvil, and 1.2 meters onto a hemispheric curbstone anvil. The headfoam sensor must register less than 300 g of force. The CPSC protects people at speeds up to 15 mph.
Yes. Whether you are riding an electric bicycle, or a standard road bike you are most likely underprotected. Electric bikes can reach speeds of about thirty miles per hour with ease. Even with your road bike, technology has advanced to the point where your bicycle can reach speeds of 18-23 mph given the terrain and your experience level. If you are wearing a CPSC helmet there is a good chance you aren’t protected as much as you should be.
