Bern Unlimited has a way of switching up the course a little bit with a funky style that integrates incredible safety measures. The Bern Watts Hard Hat Skate helmet has been designed with loads of wicked features which are all wrapped up within a very lightweight, snug fitting little lid that provides extra protection to certain regions, while upping the ante with its functional and funky silhouette.
Getting down to the triple threat construction of the Watts Hard Hat with the inside layer - we’ve got the soft and waterproof EVA inner foam which conforms nicely to the curves of the head, providing a super snug, secure and personalized fit. Beneath this lies a layer of multi impact Brock foam, which is comprised from fusing polypropylene foam beads with an elastic adhesive. This results in a closed cell foam, which still retains a porous quality - enabling moisture and air to flow freely from all directions, providing maximum cooling and minimal drying time. All encased in a hard outer shell of high impact Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), thermoplastic shell, this helmet boasts a solid, sturdy fit and a slick skater style that truly boosts confidence levels.
The crazy good fit of the Watts comes down to a combination of things; with it’s multilayered construction laid atop a strong foundation of Bern’s Sink Fit design and its moderate flexibility, the Watts just has a way of wrapping your head with a glove like fit. It has a lower back as well, which provides added protection to the rear region of the head, while the snug fit is backed up with adjustable straps for added stability. While the Watts’ design does incorporate high impact protection, there are not currently any specifications as to whether or not it holds any safety certifications, so I wouldn’t recommend this helmet for extreme, hard hitting activities where you may be prone to taking heavy blows to the head.
The Bern Watts mixes in some pretty wicked features for your added comfort and convenience. One of the coolest being the 8tracks wired in audio system which is integrated into the cold weather kit and snapped into The Clip (patent pending) snap in clip system. Another handy addition to this funky little helmet is the Twin Clip system which are optimally located for custom goggle fitting. They are however removable, when goggles are not required. This slick little lid’s also got a handy built in visor, which helps shield your eyes from Mr. Golden Sun’s rays.
As an additional upgrade option, the Watts’ comfort liner can be switched from EVA to EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam which is compliant with EN1078, EN1077, AST 2040 and CPSC regulations, making it a superior choice for some riding that may be a little harder hitting. A truly versatile and customizable helmet, the Bern Watts can be everything you want it to be.
