Polo is known for being one of the favorite sports of the upper classes and nobility. Those who practice it recognize that it is an expensive, exciting, but dangerous discipline. To practice it safely, the polo player must have adequate protective equipment, and must always be checked before each match.
Argentina is recognized worldwide as a polo power, and this makes it an innovative country in the development of products for this sport.
The polo helmet is one of the key and basic elements to play polo, and they are manufactured in the region and exported to different markets around the world.
The most innovative helmet that has been developed so far is the one manufactured by Kohlenia, an Argentine company that currently produces helmet shells, using epoxy resin reinforced with carbon fiber and glass fabrics, which together with the CONICET, Institute of Technology in Polymers and Nanotechnology, have been able to make improvements in their product.
With this project, the helmet is now made with a nanostructured composite material based on carbon fiber, epoxy and polyurethane, which allows the helmet to have more resistance, weight reduction and cost reduction in production.
Safety to enjoy a good game is essential, and we are proud to have an innovative Polo industry that is always looking to improve its standards.
