Top Helmets for a Safe Noggin Hot

helmetAn increased awareness of head safety and protection has taken the sporting world by storm recently.

Skiing and snowboarding is no exception, just ask pro snowboarder Kevin Pearce who could very easily be dead today if it wasn’t for his helmet. In 2009, Pearce suffered a traumatic brain injury in practice after hitting his head on the lip of the halfpipe. Unfortunately, Pearce’s story isn’t isolated, however stories like these validate the calls for all skiers and snowboarders to wear helmets. People will continue to make excuses as to why they won’t or shouldn’t wear the helmet, so here is a quick guide to some of the best head protection around. Not only are many of these items safe, but they fit properly, are comfortable and keep in step with the latest styles:

Casco’s SP3 Edelholz Helmet:

It might cost you a pretty penny, but you can’t put a price tag on your head. The helmet is made via a three-layer, natural wood process in the shell design, which provides maximum safety with minimal weight. You can remove the lining to throw it through the washer, however all these perks will clean out your wallet to the tune of roughly $480.

Bern Muse Hard Hat:

Designed specifically for women, Skiing Magazine named the Bern Muse Hard Hat one of its top-ten helmets on the market. The design is tailored for a woman’s head and includes two liners (winter and summer) for different conditions.

Uvex X-Ride Motion Ski Helmet:           

 With a wide range of sizing options, Uvex has a helmet able to fit anyone. The X-Ride model features six vents to keep riders cool and an anti itch sweat absorbing liner. It also comes with removable earflaps and a ratcheting closure strap.

Boeri Tactic Helmet:

The Boeri brand is well known in the industry and the Tactic helmet is a continuation of the company’s quality. This particular model allows for a personalized fit every time it’s put on via Boeri’s “Head Loc” Occipital Retention System. The helmet is also very lightweight to allow for easing riding.

Giro Encore Helmet:

A helmet suitable for the more reasonable budget, Giro’s Encore Helmet comes with a number of features that won’t completely break the bank. The Encore includes: a temperature-regulating thermostat, removable ear pads, a chill stopping seal, comfortable liner and goggle notch to keep goggles in place.
