Kali has been putting in work over recent years, refining their helmet technology to increase safety while continually improving their lineup to remain among the top brands on the market. The new Alpine Full-Face Helmet is their lightest full-face helmet to date and is fully DH-certified, offering a level of protection rated for downhill racing in a package light enough for epic enduro missions.The helmet uses Kali's Composite Fusion construction that merges the shell and EPS foam liner together, employing layers of multi-density cone-shaped foam that Kali claims reduce impact g-forces by up to 25%. The co-molded construction eliminates any air gap between the shell and foam, helping the shell and liner work together to be stronger. The cones act as a crumple zone, using harder foam on the outside to quickly dissipate high g-force impacts, with softer foam near your head to help cushion any blow. During an impact, the cones compress or "crumple," which disperses forces laterally to reduce the overall impact force.Kali feels that some helmets are actually overbuilt, designed to meet regulations written to protect a rider from worst-case scenario crashes, but not adequately addressing the lower impact forces that can still lead to concussions. Their solution is a technology called the Low Density Layer (LDL), which consists of strategically placed gel pads on the inside surface of the EPS foam, next to your head. These gel pads are able to compress, rotate, and shear in any direction, helping to reduce low-g linear impacts as well as rotational impacts. Kali claims a 25% reduction in rotational impact force and a 30% reduction in low-g linear impact forces with this design.

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
