The Halo Product Range
THE HALO® PRODUCT RANGE
Our challenge was to design a helmet that looked stylish, performed as well as today’s leading helmet and then add new and unique potentially life-saving elements; effectively a new category of helmet. So not only will you want to wear it because it looks and feels good, it could save your life on that one day it all goes wrong.
Head trauma occurs in around 80-90% of all motorcyclist fatalities. A key factor in these injuries is swelling within the skull, which can damage brain cells, blood vessels and nerves. Halo® active technology helps to mitigate this by cooling the rider’s head immediately after the accident in the critical time, known as ‘the golden hour’, before emergency services arrive on the scene, having been alerted by our Halocator® system.
The polystyrene foam (EPS) found in most motorcycle helmets is the same foam that is installed in the walls of refrigerators and portable coolers. It’s the perfect energy absorber…and insulator. The helmet acts like an oven to an already hot, sweaty head causing post-accident brain temperatures to potentially reach a fatal threshold.
Halo® active technology works by triggering an endothermic chemical reaction inside the helmet lining at the moment of impact.
Halo® active technology works by triggering an endothermic chemical reaction inside the helmet lining at the moment of impact. The helmet immediately cools the motorcyclists head, keeping it cold even before the emergency services have been called.

HALO® CTEC-1 ACTIVE MOTORCYCLE HELMET
The Halo® CTEC-1 is the world’s first active helmet, incorporating our patented endothermic technology and Halocator®. The contemporary design of the CTEC-1 also benefits from a striking carbon fibre and Kevlar shell as well as adjustable air ventilation, Kevlar Integrated Strap System (KISS), visor locking system, removable COOLMAX lining and security tag.
Calls the emergency services when you can't
All too often we hear stories of riders enjoying ‘the lanes’ or the moors and backroads when it goes wrong. Who knows where you are? Is anyone expecting you back? Did anyone see you come off? Can you move to go and get help and when will the next car come along? At night this is even more of a drama.
“It’s ok though I have my phone”
Some riders are unconscious after an accident, or you may struggle to get your phone to your head with a helmet on, or even find your phone if you are injured.
Halocator® is the emergency beacon technology incorporated within the Halo® helmet that alerts emergency services in case of an accident.
Halocator® is activated following an accident and sends a message to a call centre. The operator will then ‘call’ the helmet which becomes a live communication system; they talk with you to ascertain your status and if needed they can keep talking with you until help arrives and we can call your emergency contact if needed. If there is no response, the emergency services are alerted and given the transmitted GPS co-ordinates along with any pertinent details that have been stored on the Halo® customer database such as name, next of kin contact details, known allergies, illnesses etc. We explain to the emergency team about the helmet so they understand why you are cool and how to remove emergency cheek pads etc.
Halocator® is provided free for the first year following purchase and is then available as a subscription service thereafter.
Kevlar Integrated Strap System
Most helmet straps are riveted into the helmet and this can be a point of failure. KISS – Kevlar Integral Strap System – is a unique system, which provides extra strength over conventional straps to help prevent injury through breaking of the strap on impact. The KISS is woven into the helmet’s carbon fibre layers; so many KISS strands form a strong tie into the helmet keeping it solid as a protective unit.
