PHX Manufacturing

Exterior Forming Process

Using an ultra-high heat injection system we mould each helmet’s exterior casing to its precise curvature and measurements. The extreme high pressure of the process gives our engineers the ability to form each helmet with unmatched precision and detail. Every formed helmet is run through our computerized testing systems which register over 1000 data points in order to confirm our manufacturing accuracy for density, smoothness and 3D composition.

This advanced manufacturing approach is what distinguishes PHX from the rest – our helmets exceed industry standards and we continue to raise the bar on both safety and product value.

Finishing Process

After the initial forming and testing is complete the helmet’s ventilation ducts and shield mountings are inserted. To ensure that these final touches do not disturb the rest of the helmet’s exterior we use a combination of lasers for incisions and high-pressure water jets for smoothing. This mechanized system is specifically tailored to heighten the performance and durability of each helmet design.

Artisan Painting

Although mechanization brings many benefits in terms of accuracy and efficiency in the construction phases, we at PHX believe aesthetics are still best completed by the personal touch. For this reason the majority of the painting process is done in-house by our local artists. Not only does this ensure that every helmet has a unique touch, but the final surface quality is much greater than what can be accomplished in a fully robotic production environment.

Final Assembly

With these final touch ups, the shield, lower beadings, impact absorption liner and the comfort padding are assembled by hand, according to strict standards of assembly.

Helmet Safety for Motorcycles

All of our PHX products are SNELL certified meaning that they meet and exceed the standards set by the US Department of Transportation (DOT). The competition can only dream of this level of quality.

While the method and requirement of penetration tests are similar for SNELL and DOT standards, there are substantial differences in the impact absorption and retention system tests. See the DOT and Snell Information section for more details.
