Ski and Snowboard helmets are important for becoming a better rider. Progression and falling go hand in hand, so make sure you stay protected! It can be sore at times but it’s one of the most rewarding aspects of the snowsports. Ski/Snowboard helmets are vital anytime you hit the slopes. It used to be uncool to wear snowboard helmets and they had a reputation for being bulky and uncomfortable. However, today’s helmets are safer, sleeker and lighter. A number of snowboard helmets come equipped with safety features like MIPS. They work by protecting you from more oblique impacts. MIPS snowboard helmets tend to be on the pricier side but who can put a price on safety. Most helmets are constructed with a protective outer shell made of PC or high impact ABS. EPS or ‘styrofoam’ is what helmet linings are usually made from. EPS is lightweight and works across a wide range of temperatures and conditions. It’s highly effective at reducing the amount of energy transferred to your head during an impact.We also have a full range of other snowboard accessories to get you ready for the slopes.
