Zox Rush C
The Zox Rush C is a
with the features of an
expensive helmet. It has a fiberglass composite shell,
“conehead” technology, EPS for maximum shock absorption, and EPS on the chin bar. It also has integrated air

Fiberglass that is
reinforced with carbon fiber and Kevlar is
the recipe for the
O’Neal 9 Series helmet’s shell construction. Multiple air vents are built in, and
the removable, washable, padded liner is made from a
material that wicks away sweat.

organic fibers that
are so strong that they can only be cut with a laser. The
result is a stronger, lighter and more attractive shell. Inside
the shell is a dual-layer EPS with the thickness and density
adjusted in key areas. The EPS includes molded-in air
channels for cooling. The EPS extends throughout the chin
bar. Shoei covers the polyurethane foam padding with a
synthetic fiber that absorbs and exhausts sweat faster than
conventional nylon. Of course, the liner is removable,
adjustable and washable.

The Formula’s shell is fiberglass, with aircraft-grade-woven carbon fiber and Kevlar making up the “glass” in
fiberglass. The heart of the helmet is the expanded polystyrene (EPS) inside. The Formula uses two layers of EPS:
one softer and one slightly harder for more progressive
impact absorption. Eleven intake and four exhaust vents
provide airflow, but Fly includes an air-vent plug kit for cold
weather. The helmet is constructed using machined-titani-um screws, rivets and D-rings. A padded helmet bag and
an extra visor are included with each helmet.
