Ski Helmets

Welcome to High Quality Store Ski Helmets Collection

A good protection when practicing sport is a fundamental aspect. In this sense, ski helmets play an essential role, as they keep one of the most delicate parts of your body safe and provide a greater sense of safety and comfort to the user in their descents down the mountain. Likewise, they act, moreover, as a shelter against the cold.

What ski helmet to buy?

Choosing a good ski helmet can greatly reduce cranial injuries from an eventual fall. To be right with your choice, pay attention to these characteristics:

• Size: In order for snowboard and ski helmets to perform well, it is essential that they adapt and hold perfectly to your head. To do this, you must measure the contour of your skull and choose exactly the size that corresponds to you. Keep in mind that a helmet that fits you will not protect you well, but a narrow one will be uncomfortable and can also be dangerous.

• Materials: The external coating is as important as the internal one. Make sure that the outer layer is made of impact resistant materials, such as ABS, since it is the one that will protect you directly from impacts and cuts, and that the inner foam has the proper thickness and adapts to the morphology of your head, it will be the part that absorbs the force of possible blows. Also, being in direct contact with your skull should be comfortable. There are helmets that allow you to remove the internal padding so you can aerate and clean it.

• Weight: The lighter the helmet, the better, because it will be more comfortable for you. However, choose a model with a good combination of resistant and lightweight materials, because the most important thing is safety.

• Ventilation: There are helmets that allow you to regulate the ventilation system, so that you can close it more if you want to conserve heat or open it if you want to eliminate sweat.

• Approved: Make sure that the helmet you are going to acquire is approved, because this quality certificate guarantees a minimum resistance to impacts.

• Earmuffs: For comfort, soft ones are recommended, which can also be disassembled to wash them. In any case, these are not recommended for skiing, where more side falls occur and better protect the hard ones.

Types of helmets: for skiing and snowboarding

There are two types of helmets that are divided according to ski or snowboard practice, each of them adapted to one or another discipline:

• Freeride: They are often used to practice snowboarding. Its main characteristic is that the earmuffs are soft, because in this sport the lateral falls are less frequent.

• Race: With rigid earmuffs, this one is more used for skiing because of the greater propensity of skiers to suffer lateral falls.

Other things to keep in mind when buying your ski helmet

When acquiring your helmet to ski it is important that you verify that it fits and complements perfectly with your glasses, because not all models are compatible and a bad combination can negatively affect your safety.

Some helmets incorporate headphones and music players or wireless systems so you can listen to your favorite songs while practicing sports and even talking on the phone.

It is advisable to renew your Snow or ski helmet every 3-5 years for safety reasons, especially if you use it continuously. Similarly, if it has suffered a strong blow and is a bit dented or broken it is necessary that you discard it and buy another one.
