The helmet liners were manufactured from Styrofoam, which was selected for its light weight and excellent impact absorption. The liners were machined using IDC’s Rye CNC milling machine. Forty helmet liners were produced, which then went on to have the final casing with British team graphics applied.
This is the second time IDC Models were selected to produce the cycle helmets for the British team, (at Beijing and London) and on both occasions the team achieved gold medals. Hopefully they will have the same success at Rio 2016.
