The EWU (First Western Union, Germany) has decreed that it is now compulsory for all Youth Class B competitors to wear a helmet when competing in Western Riding competitions. Although cowboy hats have been worn for a long time, and the Western Riding discipline is hardly imaginable without them, the board has made its decision. Safety first, looks second. For riders who cannot warm to wearing a traditional, English-style helmet, the equestrian helmet manufacturer uvex, has developed a range of models. Available in all price categories, they fit perfectly with the Western Riding philosophy.
Young, spirited and upbeat in shape and colour. With an unconventional design, the fp3 and fp2 flash models from the uvision equestrian helmet range look great worn with a Western Riding outfit. They offer top quality and of course meet the highest safety standards. Very easy to adjust, they also offer optimal ventilation and perfect comfort. Made in Germany.
uvision – affordable and high-tech in a futuristic design
Maximum safety, cool looks and exceptional value for money sums up the uvision range from uvex. Designed to meet the needs of the next generation of young riders. The entire helmet knowledge of the company, based in Fürth, Germany was directed into its development. The concentrated expertise and know-how of one of the world’s leading helmet manufacturers, can be seen in these feather-light products. Made using its proven in-mould construction, they should put an end to a sweat soaked head. In addition to the current single colours, and metallic colours of silver and titanium, uvex now introduces a new colour option to the uvision family- matt black degradé (aged matt black). uvision offers maximum head protection combined with optimal comfort. The helmet’s outer shell, made from an extremely strong, practically unbreakable high-tech plastic, is firmly bonded to the dome-shaped inner shell. The inner dome material absorbs the impact energy of a crash or collision, to provide optimal protection. The inner helmet is also comfortably padded. In addition, the uvision helmet can be adjusted to fit each individual head shape. It offers 3-dimensional adjustability. Both the length, and width, of the head circumference can be adjusted, while the height can be adjusted with millimetric precision.
- € 99.95 RRP uvex uvision in single matt colours.
- € 119.95 RRP uvex uvision in three futuristic metallic shades: silver, titanium degradé (aged titanium) and brand new: matt black degradé (aged matt black).
fp 3 nature – for the ultimate western look
The classic brown and white marked western horse strongly influenced the creation of this helmet, when our uvex design team turned to the natural world for inspiration. The imitation fur cover enables the creation of a natural, truly western look. The uvex fp 3 active helmet is the starting point for the uvex nature series. Made possible because of injection moulding technology, it has frequently gained top marks in a range of tests, carried out by specialist trade magazines. For example, in a test by Cavallo Magazine, uvex fp 3 nature was voted the winner out of the 12 helmets tested.
It stands out from other helmets due to its exceptionally light weight, perfect ventilation and optimal comfort, while still giving the highest protection. The fp 3´s intelligent, temperature regulating interior (uvex clima management) ensures you always have a cool head. It uses a specially designed, breathable clima membrane and sweat absorbing and transporting material, similar to that used in high performance, wicking sports underwear. Specially positioned, integrated air channels, quickly dissipate excess heat caused by physical exertion or high ambient temperatures. In addition, the lining is anti-allergenic, easily removable and washable. All fp3 helmets feature the highly adjustable uvex IAS 3D system, which enables the helmet fit to be fine tuned, for individual head shapes.
fp 2 flash – premium, aged leather look
Equipped with the same superb features and offering the same high level of protection as the fp 3 range, the fp 2 flash is available in a premium, aged leather look. A real eye catcher and a perfect complement to any cowboy or cowgirl look. Available in brown or black leather look.
