First Look | Uvex Jakkyl hde And Finale – Two New Enduro Helmets
Germany’s resident helmet specialists Uvex presented two exciting new enduro helmets yesterday at a product launch in Ötztal. These two new helmets – the Jakyll hde with a removable chin protector and the more affordable Finale – were designed in close cooperation with Uvex team riders Michal Prokop and Max Schumann.
The Jakyll hde helmet with removable chin protector
Uvex have been working on the new Jakyll hde for over a year, with the sole aim of developing a helmet that offers optimal ventilation on climbs and maximal protection on descents. The Jakyll hde has a fiberglass chin protector, which can be attached and removed rapidly with just a few hand motions. Hitting the shelves early next year with a price of 199.95 €, the helmet will come in two sizes (52-57 cm / 56-61 cm) and two colour models. According to Uvex, the helmet, including chin protector, weighs around 630g.
The Uvex Finale
The second newbie to enter Uvex’s helmet collection is the Uvex Finale. This helmet from this historic German company is particularly well suited to trail riders who appreciate a helmet’s low-slung side protection and a large surface area at the rear too. Despite the big contact area, the 20 air vents should keep your head nice and cool. This helmet, retailing at 109.95€, will be available in four colours (royal blue-cyan matt, orange-red matt, purple-pink matt and dark silver-black matt).
