IPX® ACELLS – THE HELMET IMPACT ABSORPTION TECHNOLOGY

The new helmet impact absorption technology from O’Neal is designed to reduce head injuries caused by low speed and rotational impacts during crashing.

The IPX® Absorption Cells (ACells) use a specially engineered polymer foam, developed to make our helmets some of the safest on the market in the event of a crash:

 

IPX® ACells are positioned on the EPS (expanded polystyrene) liner on the inside of the helmet in small recesses, between the EPS and the comfort liner.

Every part of each individual IPX® ACells has been specifically engineered to work together to provide the ultimate in crash protection:




IPX® ACells are available in selected O’Neal helmet models and were developed in conjunction with multiple MTB Downhill World-Cup winner and multiple MTB Downhill World Champion Greg Minnaar:

  • Race-Ready: IPX® ACells do not affect the fitting of the helmet liner. Helmets with IPX® ACells do not bounce or move on the head during riding.
  • Enhanced-Forehead-Protection: The positioning of IPX® ACells enhances the performance for direct or oblique frontal impacts, using lots of individual components and positioning them more towards the front of the helmet.
