Abus bicycle helmet PowerDome – Overview
The Abus bicycle helmet – safety with take-off difficulties
The Abus “mobile safety” division traditionally includes the area of bicycle locks. Bicycle helmets undoubtedly also contribute to safety when cycling. Thus, it sounded obvious at first when the German company announced in 1994 that it would include bicycle helmets in its portfolio. The success of the new Abus bicycle helmet division was not a foregone conclusion. But Abus kept at it and managed to establish itself as a manufacturer of high-quality bicycle helmets.
A key decision in 2016 was the decision to get involved in professional cycling. Since the professional athletes of the Grand Tours have been riding and testing Abus helmets, a lot has happened. At the same time, a new helmet model came onto the market that not only looked sporty and elegant but was also functionally convincing. Particularly exciting was the information that this helmet is manufactured by the Italian company Maxi Studio. The small company based in Vanzo Nuovo specialises in the development and production of high-quality bicycle helmets. The “Gamechanger”, “Airbreaker” and “Stormchaser” models have always been “Made in Italy”.
Abus Fahrradhelme: Die eigene Produktion Made in Italy
In 2021, the next step was taken: Abus took over Maxi Studio, fully integrated the helmet manufacturer into the company group and can now proudly claim to have its own helmet factory in Italy. So far the short prequel to this news article itself. This one deals with the latest member of the “Made in Italy” family!
The Abus bicycle helmet in this article has the name PowerDome. It combines the fit and innovations of its sister models with fresh design. And above all: despite clear “road” genes, it clearly softens the concept of the road. Not only asphalt – gravel roads are also the playground of the latest Abus bike helmet! Which finally makes perfectly clear why we are highlighting it in our blog.
What makes the Abus PowerDome bicycle helmet special?
The Abus PowerDome has generous air channels that dominate the helmet’s slim design and are naturally intended to provide perfect ventilation. To ensure that it fits perfectly, the PowerDome has the so-called FlowStraps. Abus’ own belt system no longer needs to be adjusted. The cushion is floating and avoids pressure points. In addition, the so-called Zoom Ace system ensures a perfect fit. In short: comfort and style meet in the PowerDome. In addition, the new Abus bike helmet model – which is also available in a MIPS version – convinces with a good price-performance ratio.
Abus has created the ACE collection especially for the style-conscious gravel riders. It comes in three stylish colours (moss green, race grey, metallic copper) with matching helmet cap. So if you’re still looking for a new gravel helmet from a German manufacturer with European production: the Abus PowerDome is worth a look!
