t.h.e. LAUNCHES POINT 5 YOUTH HELMET
High-end mountain-bike and BMX helmet and soft-goods maker t.h.e. recently released the long-awaited youth version of its popular Point 5 full-face helmet. Now little rippers can get the style and comfort they demand along with the extreme protection of a genuine t.h.e. full face made just for them at an affordable price.
The t.h.e. Point 5 Youth offers a custom, anatomically shaped youth-size shell. In response to the overwhelming demand for an affordable youth-size helmet, t.h.e. engineered a custom injection-molded ABS shell resulting in a dialed fit and reduced weight at a remarkable value. Pads are removable, washable, interchangeable and available in a variety of sizes to ensure proper fit as young riders grow, making the Point 5 Youth a worthy investment capable of lasting many seasons.
The Point 5 Youth incorporates all the features of the original adult Point 5 including 15 external vents and scoops; a padded chin-strip with D-ring closure; an adjustable, replaceable color-matched visor; EVA impact-foam chin-bar liner; and mostuire-wicking, breathable, washable comfort liner.
The Point 5 Youth exceeds CPSC, EN 1078 AND AS/NZ 2063 certification standards.

"There is an ever-increasing number of young riders--particularly in BMX racing--and all too often they are trying to fit their helmets rather than wearing helmets truly designed to fit them," notes t.h.e. COO, Gregorio de Haro. "Our goal with the Point 5 Youth was not only to offer customized sizing, but value and versatility. We wanted to make an affordable helmet that young riders can grow with, not grow into."
The Point 5 Youth is on sale now and currently available for $99.99 in youth sizes S, M, L, XL. Available colors are Current Blue, Current Red and Current Black. The Point 5 Youth is suitable for mountain-bike and BMX use. www.the-industries.com
