Designed from the ground up, the Bluegrass Vanguard Core is a lightweight full-face helmet for committed MTB riders. As well as being downhill ASTM F1952 and e-bike NTA 8776 certified, the Vanguard Core includes Mips brain protection and was rated five stars at the Virginia Tech Helmet Lab. The Vanguard Core leads from the front, keeping your head as safe as possible while you shred the trails.
ASTM's F1952 Downhill Mountain Bicycle Racing helmet standard is significantly more stringent than traditional bicycle helmet standards and is the only standardised test for the safety of the chinbar. The Vanguard Core exceeds by 40% the ASTM deflection limits. An ASTM certified helmet needs much more coverage and is tested at higher impact levels.
UNIQUE CHEEKPADS DESIGN
Our innovative C-shaped cheek pad design ensures maximum ventilation, helping to keep you cool when you’re riding hard. They have two adjustable positions and are designed to make putting on the helmet supremely easy. The Vanguard is at the forefront of mountain biking protection, designed in-house in our cutting-edge labs, and backed by our decades of experience.
Bluegrass Vanguard Mips is designed to go above and beyond what has been normally accepted as the norm in regards of protection, design and style.
