Ski Helmets

Winter is just about upon us, and that means snow enthusiasts will be chomping at the bit to get out on the snow. Whether you are a veteran of the slopes, or someone looking to get in on the fun, it pays to make sure that your equipment is up to par. Doing so will add the important element of safety to your fun. Arguably the most important piece of equipment is the ski helmet. An inferior model, or not wearing one at all, will greatly increase the risk of you suffering severe head trauma, or concussion.

It may come as a surprise to many that ski and snowboard helmets are not held to the same safety standards as bicycle helmets, as required by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (UPSC), but that doesn’t mean that you should go for the cheapest version available. The end goal is to protect yourself as effectively as possible, and with that in mind, there are some safety standards that you should be looking for in a helmet. When shopping for a ski or snowboard helmet, be on the lookout for those that bear the seal of approval from American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), as those are most likely to offer the best protection.

Once you’ve settled on the style and color of your ski helmet, the next thing to consider is the size. It does no good to purchase the safest helmet on the market if it’s not going to be a perfect fit, and will come flying off the first time you take even the slightest of tumbles. Making sure that your helmet fits doesn’t take a lot of effort on your part, but by doing so, you could be taking that simple extra step that will save your life in the event of a major spill. Most helmets are sized based on head circumference, which is usually measured in centimeters, so measuring your head before you shop may end up saving you a bunch of time at the store.

That’s not where it all ends though, and when it’s time to shop for a ski helmet, you must be sure to bring along your goggles, as well as any headwear that you would normally wear under the helmet. While most ski and snowboard helmets are designed with a layer of insulation to help keep out the cold, a lot of snow lovers will wear a beanie, or some other warm piece of headgear underneath. That can add a few centimeters to the overall head circumference, meaning that a helmet that would fit your bare head, might not do so well on top of other headgear. Ski helmets are usually designed to accommodate your goggles as well, so be sure to add them to the whole trying on process.

Ski and snowboard helmets come in all sorts of cool designs and styles nowadays, so you will be sure to find one that not only provides premium protection, but also matches your own individual sense of style.
