Shiva 2.0 Carbon Full-Face Helmet by Kali Protectives
If you're a fan of the biggest freeride event on the planet located in Southern Utah, you probably remember the name Nicholi. He suffered one of the gnarliest crashes we've ever witnessed in 2015. Well, Kali Protectives outfitted Nicholi with an early prototype of this very same Shiva 2. 0 Carbon Full-Face Helmet before the event, complete with Kali's LDL system. This crash showcased just how rugged this full-face helmet is while being smashed and bashed over the sharp rocks and sheer cliffs on this course, providing a glimpse into the robust construction methods packed into this premium full-face lid. With this crash serving as a testament to its legendary strength (and Nicholi's nerves of steel we might add), the Shiva 2. 0 Carbon Full-Face Helmet gives the most demanding of downhill racers, freeriders, and bike park addicts the robust protection they need when putting it all on the line. It's upgraded over the standard Shiva 2. 0 with a full carbon shell, which drops approximately five ounces in weight from the regular Shiva 2. 0, as well as increasing the overall rigidity and strength of the helmet. Nano Fusion construction mates traditional EPS foam with carbon nanotubes and acrylic self-healing foam to better absorb energy and reduce the overall volume of the helmet. It's then outfitted with Kali's Low Density Layer (LDL) compromised of viscoelastic padding to significantly reduce rotational forces transmitted through the helmet. Kali didn't stop there, opting for a total of 18 vents along the head, brow, and chin bar to usher cooling airflow inside, as well as providing anti-odor pads that ensure lasting freshness after long, sweaty sessions. Also, it has a breakaway visor, which gives you protection from trailside brush and harsh sunshine, but snaps off during a crash for additional safety.

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.
