Melon Helmets with Fidlock helmet buckle

SNAP Helmet buckle for the Melon Helmets

The Urban Active bicycle and roller-sport helmets from the young Melon Helmets brand are the perfect mix of retro design and high technology. The powerful combination of comfort, user-friendliness and safety is setting new standards. Their trademark characteristics include their low weight from 260 grams – their ingenious ventilation system designed for cool heads and to stop the wearer no sweating, and the Fidlock SNAP helmet buckle. The self-closing buckle can be released with just one hand – even with gloves or wet fingers. The Melon Urban Active received the Red Dot Design Award for the winning overall concept which inspired it.

Fahrer Kurier Quadrat excels with Eurobike 2012 award

Fahrer Kurier Quadrat excels with Eurobike 2012 award

Fahrer is one of the award winners at this year’s Eurobike show, which saw the honours go to the Kurier Quadrat pannier, which is based on the innovative Kurier carrier/pannier system. The capacity of the pannier can be increased as required. When closed and mounted on the bike, it is slim-fitting, causes virtually no wind resistance and can carry laptops and magazines. The bottom folds out when it is expanded, giving it a more stable form and providing more space for contents.

The Fahrer Kurier Quadrat is the first pannier to feature an integrated padded shoulder strap system that can be placed in the inner compartment at the rear of the pannier when on the move. It is secured to the convenient Fahrer Kurier carrier system, which is as slim as a mudguard yet as stable as a luggage rack, via the self-closing attachments on the braces. This secure fastening system, which is quick and easy to use, is based on the proven SNAP fasteners from Fidlock.

TSG wins Eurobike award for the Kraken+ helmet

TSG wins Eurobike award for the Kraken+ helmet

Safety and comfort win Eurobike 2012 award for the Kraken+ helmet from TSG. The Fidlock fastener system completes the innovative overall concept.

TSG, a supplier of protective clothing for extreme sports, impressed the judges at Eurobike 2012 with its safe, adjustable and comfortable Kraken+ crash helmets. Particularly praiseworthy was the combination of the innovative carrier system (FlexTech innovation) and the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS, Brain Protection System), whereby the flexible inner shell adapts to different head shapes for safe and pressure-free wearer comfort. An optimum distribution of impact energy is guaranteed by the manoeuvrability of the individual foam parts. The MIPS system is located between the helmet shell and the foam and imitates the “biological” protective mechanisms of the human brain. In the event of an accident, the helmet shell shifts, absorbing the majority of the rotational forces common in diagonal impacts that would otherwise be directed at the brain. The result is maximum protection of the head.

The safe and easy to use fastener system from Fidlock completes TSG’s comprehensive safety concept for the Kraken+ helmet, namely the multi-award winning SNAP helmet buckle, which is self-closing and opens easily by sliding to the side.

Lazer Oasiz GoPro camera mount wins Eurobike 2012 award

Helmets from Lazer are renowned among professional cyclists for their excellent functionality, safety and comfort. No wonder therefore that Lazer Sport has won the Eurobike award for the fifth time.

Helmets from Lazer are renowned among professional cyclists for their excellent functionality, safety and comfort. Whether the special adjustment system to fit any head size, the lightweight design or the temperature-regulating helmet padding – helmets from Lazer are packed with high-performance technology. This includes the “magic buckle” fastener system (based on the Fidlock SNAP helmet buckle fastener), which allows cyclists to easily open and close the helmet with just one hand.

Lazer also understands the need to regularly adapt its helmets to meet the growing requirements of users. For example, the integrated special mount for the popular GoPro sports camera. This innovation recently impressed the judges at the sports cycling event and won the coveted Eurobike 2012 award for the Lazer Oasiz cycle helmet with integrated GoPro mount.

The mount allows the GoPro camera to be easily attached to – and also quickly detached from – the top of the helmet, representing a considerably safer option than the camera’s standard mounting system. Once secured in place, the camera is completely fixed and cannot move – meeting all the requirements for perfect support while out on a bike.
