Helmet description

Designed for the extreme situation, the 4Star cross-country skull is certified to four top international safety standards. 

A technically superior helmet, the deep-fitting 4Star is the result of years of advanced computer analysis and incorporates the latest technology with a fibre-reinforced shell for improved crush resistance. It features the patented GRpx® harness system for the ultimate in stability.

The 4Star helmet also has the innovative Charles Owen “Free Fit” ventilation system, which allows for increased airflow across the forehead. It combines a frontal air channel with Coolmax® mesh to significantly increase cooling and evaporation of sweat.

Add this to the 10 ventilation slots, and the 4Star provides the coolest ride yet. 

Perfectly finished with a ventilated silk, the 4Star helmet is the ultimate choice for the safety-conscious rider.

NEW! The 4Star now features a magnetic harness clasp for effortless closure so that the helmet can be buckled with just one hand. The clasp features a unique tab that the rider simply has to pull to instantly release the harness, making it quick and easy to take the helmet on and off without sacrificing the incredible security and stability required of a high performance cross-country skull.

How to measure your head

Watch the video for a demonstration of how to properly measure and fit your helmet.

You’ll need a soft fabric measuring tape marked in centimetres (cm).

Wrap the tape around the widest part of your head: about one inch above your eyebrows, just above the ear line and around the bump at the back of your head.

Once you have your measurement in centimetres, click here for the size chart to convert it to our standard helmet size.

If possible, we recommend having a professional fitting with your local retailer.
