Three words: safe, safe, and safe. The Envy incorporates Scott’s Biomex design—an aluminum roll cage that ups the integrity of the ABS shell—and shock-absorbing d3o material, which hardens upon impact for additional protection. Scott’s M-R.A.S. fit system keeps the helmet in place, preventing unseemly gaper-gap and, more important, maximizing your safety. Scott’s active S-Vent system pulls air over the crown of your head while the G-Vent system moves air across your goggle lens to keep your windshield fog-free. You can also customize your helmet-goggle integration with single- or triple-point lockdown.21 oz.
