Snowboard Helmets

It wasn’t so very long ago that the snowy slopes were dominated by those on ski’s, with snowboarders considered the rebels of the hill, but in recent years the sport of snowboarding has become incredibly popular, and now the slopes are shared by both. There can be no doubt that the Winter X Games had a huge effect on the popularity of snowboarding, as did the cool styles of both the boards and gear.

Snowboarding was almost as much of a fashion show as it was a display of board skills, but the one thing that seemed to be sorely lacking were snowboard helmets. The same could also be said for the ski community, and even to this day it’s believed that only a little over 50% of folks on the slopes take the time to don a ski helmet. That number is expected to rise as many resorts have tuned to making the wearing of helmets mandatory, and it’s easy to understand why, given the level of safety they add to a sport that is performed at very high speeds.

Skiers and boarders may now share the snow in relative harmony, but their styles definitely set them apart, and while you might believe that the differences would extend to the helmet, it’s there that they are actually very similar. Sure, the colors and style may differ, but the basic components of ski and snowboard helmets are identical. They are made from sturdier stuff than the average bicycle helmet, and the outer shell is generally constructed from ABS high impact plastic, which gives added protection against knocks and abrasions, and particularly helps protect the head from jagged materials like rock and trees.

The inner liner is made from expanded polystyrene foam, and is designed to absorb impact, which results in fewer serious head traumas and brain injury. In the event of a serious fall, the foam may become compressed in a manner that may not be visible to the naked eye. The best course of action in the event of a major accident is to discard the helmet and buy a new one.

Snowboard helmets also come in a couple of different construction types; in-mold helmets are the lightest available on the market and are made by attaching the outer shell and the foam in a single molding process. The other version is an injection molded helmet which provides a little more durability when it comes to everyday wear and tear, whilst still offering equal levels of protection. Instead of a one piece construction, the injection-molded helmet features the foam bonded to a separate shell.

The helmet construction and design of ski and snowboard helmets may be exactly the same, but the boarders tend to like to add their own individual, custom touches to their helmets. That has certainly gone a long way to add a splash of color to the slopes, and has also helped introduce a new generation of followers to winter sports.
