Endura MT500 helmet

In order to maximize the protective powers of the MT500 helmet, Endura opted for unconventional materials and decided to replace key sections of EPS foam with the Koroyd system. Forming a honeycomb-like structure with Koroyd-engineered polymer tubes, the tubes deform linearly in the event of a crash, significantly reducing the max g-force the brain is exposed to. The additional benefit is visible after a crash: unlike a model with EPS foam, Koroyd easily reveals whether the helmet is a write-off or whether it’s still fit for service. Out on the trails the Endura delivered supreme comfort, extensive adjustment options, and good airflow. Its package is completed with mounts, goggle compatibility, and a contemporary design aesthetic. The Endura MT500 represents a new generation of helmets that exceed all current standards and prioritize the rider’s safety.
