IDOL

Award WINNER 2021
Category Sustainability - GREEN Award
Company ALPINA Sports

The IDOL is our new role model. Because never before has ALPINA developed a helmet with lower CO2 impact. “Made in Germany”, a plant-oil based hard shell, straps and aeration mechanism from recycled plastic - made from old PET bottles and textile waste. The inlay is an eco pad made from recycled thread. The IDOL is a flagship project that shows what is possible - and where the journey is going. The design is clean, the vents staged as an organic surface play. Not only for style, but above all for a cool head in the concrete jungle. The integrated rear light provides additional safety in poor visibility.

Jury Statement

Combining sustainability with safety products is a difficult ask and one that has only been achieved with limited success. With its Idol model, Alpina has implemented what is feasible. Recycled materials and organically based plastics conserve resources. And what’s more, the helmet is “Made in Germany”, which cuts out a lot of CO2 during transport.
