Ski Helmets Should Be Worn On The Slopes
A ski helmet is the most important item of ski protection that you can wear. It offers excellent protection for your brain and outer head in the event of a fall or crash. The awareness of head protection in skiing has grown a lot over recent years, so the number of people wearing ski helmets has increased dramatically. The best ski helmets are the ones that are officially certified and fit your head correctly. To make it easy for you, all helmets available here have the correct certification, so you don’t have to worry about that - you can just concentrate on picking a helmet with a design to your liking.
There is no difference between men's and women's ski helmets, as the head size does not vary a lot by gender.
Important Features of a Ski helmet
As mentioned previously, your helmet should be officially certified and all our helmets meet the European safety standards by the code - EN 1077. MIPS technology is another form of protection that offers great absorption against rotational impacts. A ventilation system, adjustable sizing wheel and ski helmets with visors are other desirable features you can look for.
The Proper Fit of Snow Helmets
Whether it is a ski or snowboard helmet, the sizes range from XS - XXL. The sizing is also given in head circumference measurements. Using a soft measuring tape, you can get this dimension to help find your helmet size. The helmet should feel snug and should not move around when shaking your head side to side or up and down.
