Trauma Void Pardus Smooth Shell Helmet is an elegant riding helmet with good ventilation. Stylish look with black matte gloss finish. The ventilation holes act as both a decorative detail and provide a good breathing function to the helmet. The liner (inner lining) has our Coolmax® technology that keeps you dry and gives a comfortable feeling by transporting away moisture. Coolmax® is designed to keep you dry and increase your comfort. Made of specially treated polyester fiber with a unique surface construction that transports moisture away from the skin out through the outer layer of the fabric. There, moisture dries faster than any other fabric and thus regulates the temperature of the skin by condensation cooling .The lining is removable and can be easily washed clean with lukewarm water.
The Pardus model is adjustable and best fits slightly oblong heads versus round heads. Regardless of the head shape, choose a size slightly larger against the previous helmet. EQ3 Pardus has MIPS Technology (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) and is a system placed inside the helmet, designed to protect the brain by reducing the harmful forces (including rotational forces) in case of possible a fall.
CAUTION: Safety equipment must fit properly and be appropriately secured with manufacture approved parts only. Altering or adding to safety equipment voids warranty and can result in injury. As a safety precaution, inspect all products prior to each use.

Mips stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System. The system is built into the helmet, designed to protect the brain by reducing the harmful forces in case of falls from a horse.
How does Mips work?
Mips act as an extra shell inside the helmet and allow the helmet to rotate in all directions without affecting the head. But in other words, the helmet takes care of the rotational forces in the event of a fall from the horse, not your head. Therefore, it goes without saying that our riding helmets should be equipped with Mips® safety system.
Why do I need Mips?
If you fall from a height or fall, you are more likely to hit your head obliquely from the side than to land straight on your head. Oblique impact creates a rotational movement to which the brain is very sensitive. At best, in the event of a hard blow, you'll be fine with a minor concussion. If you're really unlucky, your brain tissue could be damaged.
How are our riding helmets tested?
Our riding helmets are tested in two versions; one with and one without Mips. To be approved, helmets need to reduce rotational forces by at least 10%. In most cases, our helmets significantly exceed this limit. Helmets are impact tested on the forehead, from the side, from the top, and the side from the front. The tests take place on all models and sizes, and are documented both via sensors and high-speed cameras. Back on Track Helmets have won numerous BEST IN TEST AWARDS.
