The lower "feet" of the helmet are covered with an extra hard shell called a "Quarter Wrap" to add durability to the helmet's lower extremities.
Now you can dump you helmet in the trunk , or into the back of the truck, without having to worry about messing up the soft exposed EPS of the lower edge.
Oh, and check out that sweet color hit! This small piece of vac formed hard shell allows the graphics guys to be nice and subtle on the top-side, with some loud character colors on the under-side.
