The N1 is a helmet like no other.
It has a three layer impact protection system (Pat. pend), engineered with our proprietary non-Newtonian thermoplastic elastomer, it's both thin and stylish.The N1 is approx. 40% thinner and our impact pads are semi-soft and flexible, compared to regular EPS helmets, that are bulky, hard and stiff by nature.
This protection system is explained by our Head of Engineering, Daniel Bünger, Dipl.Ing. Bio and Nano technologies, here:
The Supermolecules in the impact cores demonstrate and shear-thinning effect. In an event of a crash, the bonds between the supermolecules break, dissipating the force and then reassemble back into their original configuration after the impact. The N1 concept is a multi-impact helmet system
Newton-Rider’s proprietary non-Newtonian polymers works differently than polystyrene helmets (EPS helmets).Our impact pads have linear protection that can help avoid concussionsin minor crashes
