Carnac’s first venture in head gear is its Hades helmet. Aimed to be used for all types of riding, the shape and design is uniquely its own.

The Carnac Hades helmet has a removable visor, carbon reinforcements on the outside of the shell and a per notch adjustable system at the back to make the helmet fit perfectly. The inner shell is fortified with its one of a kind helmet cut to keep the styrofoam pads from coming off.

The gel pads inside the Hades helmet are cut and placed strategically to increase ventilation and air flow. Sizes available are 52-58 and 55-62 along with four colors to choose from.
