Product Info

Every decision you make starts with your head, so protecting it should be a no-brainer. The Marker Ampire MAP Helmet sits atop the realm of dome protection, utilizing hybrid shell construction reinforced with Multi-Impact Adaptive Polymer (MAP) technology for industry-leading impact protection and comfort. Its precise fit, superior ventilation, and 360° edge protection make this an easy choice for big mountain adventures. The Ampire MAP also features passive and active ventilation mechanisms plus the robust 360° Edge Protection and 270° MAP protection pads for increased durability and side-impact protection. The Fidlock snap buckle and XDry performance lining are added bonuses.

Product Details

Construction

Hybrid Shell ConstructionHybrid shell construction combines the weight and comfort advantages of in-mold technology with the durability of hard shell construction. In the event of a crash, the hard shell is not only highly durable, but also distributes force across its surface. The extra-light in-mold shell on the lower section wraps around the entire rear of the head for optimal protection. With adjustable MarkAIR ventilation channels, the final product is a premium helmet featuring state-of-the-art technology, low overall weight, and outstanding comfort.

Multi-Impact Adaptive Polymer (MAP)An innovative, closed-cell foam delivering multi-impact absorption. It was developed in cooperation with the University of Bologna, which provided scientific consulting for the entire project. The specific weight of MAP is extremely low compared with previous protective materials. Under normal conditions, MAP is pleasantly soft and flexible, ensuring maximum freedom of movement and comfort. Upon impact, MAP begins to stiffen even while the strike is still happening, absorbing energy. Thanks to its multi-impact properties, the foam resumes its original form almost instantaneously, ensuring the best protection even against multiple, rapid impacts.

Ventilation

2 Position Climate ControlThe ventilation within the helmet can be controlled using the adjustable 2 Position Climate Control (partially or fully closed). This works even with gloves on and while in motion! Move the slider to control the air volumes to match your own personal warmth preferences.

MarkAIR Channel SystemThe complex MarkAIR channel system, used in all Marker helmets, is the most advanced temperature regulation system available. It consists of a precisely calculated network of vent openings and air channels to combine the ventilation of the outer shell with interior channels of the EPS foam core. This allows the MarkAIR channel system to literally “draw” the warm, moist air out of the goggles, “sucking” it along the air channels and out of the helmet to reduce significantly any fogging of the goggles. At the same time there is a constant and pleasant flow of air to cool the entire system and regulate it automatically. This ensures a cool head whatever the situation.

Fit

RTS Fit SystemRotate to size – there’s no simpler way. The three-point construction on the rear of the head adapts to your personal head shape in seconds thanks to the adjustment dial. This translates into a comfortable, yet pleasantly snug fit that keeps the helmet in place. During a crash you want a helmet that sits just right and won’t slide around, giving your head the best protection.

Removable EarpadsThe ergonomic design of the removable ear padding ensures a warm, comfortable fit. All ear pads are also audio ready for all current systems, meaning they work with your sound system and/or mobile phone. Easy to remove and hand-washable in lukewarm water.

Additional Features

360° Edge ProtectionAn additional polycarbonate plate on the lower edge of the helmet protects the helmet against dings and dents. Extra protection in the even of a side impact.

270° MAP Protection PadsProvide extra protection in the event of a side impact.

Fidlock OG SnapThe revolution for helmet closures – extremely convenient to operate. The Fidlock OG Buckle is a magnetic safety buckle with a slider mechanism that can be opened and closed with one hand. This ensures an extremely secure hold in the event of a crash, yet can be operated very quickly even while wearing a ski glove and is designed to guard against pinching the wearer’s skin.

XDry Performance LiningTechnical performance lining that ensures optimal thermal efficiency. The textured material insulates against cold and, in the event of excess heat, the air is transported to the exterior. Moisture is wicked outwards to prevent excessive sweating. Features: anti-bacterial treatment, quickly removable, and hand-washable in lukewarm water.

Audio ReadyCompatible with all current music players and smartphones.

Natural Audio RegulationRemove the inserts so you can better hear your surroundings.
