|PREMIER HELMETS CELEBRATE 50 YEARS
April 14 2006.
Italian helmet manufacturer Premier is celebrating 50 years in business. Many changes have taken place over the years, but Premier has always been at the forefront of development with cutting-edge helmet technology. In that time Premier has introduced some of the most advanced construction techniques in the industry, coupled with the very latest technological advancements in durable, lightweight materials.
Whilst other companies seek to mass produce helmets in the Far East, Premier continue to manufacture helmets at its 3,200 square-meter factory in Italy. Regular feedback from riders like five times World Road Race Champion Phil Read and more recently the ever popular Frankie Chili, ensures Premier's R&D department is always making advances in helmet design. In fact, many other well known brands rely on Premier for the production of their shells.
At the factory based just outside Luca, in Tuscany, Premier carries out 98% of its entire production. The premises are BSI, DOT, ECE2205, TUV and Snell approved, with a sophisticated in-house laboratory equipped with the most modern testing machines, allowing Premier to rigorously monitor each stage of development, ensuring quality and safety for its customers. Premier helmets are all handmade and, with stringent quality controls at every stage in the helmets construction, a Premier helmet offers the best possible comfort and protection.
In commemoration of Premier's 50th anniversary, the company has produced the Carbon Avenger, a limited edition full mix carbon helmet weighing in at just 1.190 grams.
Shell: Full Carbon.
Internal: Double density inner with Outlast removable lining.
Ventilation: Tri-top air extraction.
Fastening: Double D.
