Long live the classic uvex quatro xc helmet
The classic uvex mountain bike helmet: uvex quatro xc (with a race upgrade). Optimized by uvex engineers for the specific needs of cross country athletes.
uvex quatro xc is significantly lighter. The double inmould construction weighs just 240 grams and is specially adapted to the demands of long cross country competitions. 17 ventilation openings ensure optimum ventilation, even on hot race days, and a deeper cut rear provides more safety. Removable, washable high quality pads also provide extra ventilation. The uvex IAS fit system makes helmet width easy to adjust. Removing the visor gives the athlete a wider field of view in every riding position. An optional plug-in LED offers extra security for training at dawn / dusk or in low light.

Is my uvex quatro xc helmet still safe after a fall or a collision?
A cycling helmet must always be replaced after a fall or collision! The impact forces on your head during a fall are absorbed by the helmet. In another impact in the same location, the cycling helmet can no longer fulfill its protective function 100%. Please note that – depending on the force and angle of impact – the helmet can even break, and should do so in order to keep the impact forces away from your head.
How often should I replace my cycling helmet?
All components of a helmet are subject to ageing, depending on handling, maintenance, and degree of wear, which depends on the intensity of use and the specific conditions of use.
Under optimum storage conditions (cool, dry, protected from daylight; no contact with chemicals; no mechanical crushing, pressure, or stress) and without use, the maximum lifetime is 8 years following the indicated date of production. This should not be exceeded in use, even if the product is in a visually good condition.
For reasons of safety, we recommend our helmets are replaced 3-5 years after initial use, depending on the intensity of use.
You can find the date of manufacture either as a calendar clock or as a sticker on the inside of the helmet. The year of manufacture is at the centre of the calendar clock. The arrow points to the month of manufacture.
