Ski helmets and snowboard helmets
You are looking for a ski or snowboard helmet. Speck-sport is here to equip you. And that's good, we have cheap ski helmets.
Once only used in competition, the ski helmet has become an essential safety accessory in your mountain practice. It will protect you from impacts during a fall or collision and even from rocks that fall when you are off-piste. As we adopted it by bike, it now seems almost unthinkable to go skiing without a helmet. Especially for children. Moreover, wearing a helmet for children has become mandatory in ski schools. There are male and female ski helmets adapted to the female morphology.
How to choose the size of your ski helmet?
It's simple, just take a tape measure and measure the circumference of the head. Manufacturers indicate the size of helmets in head size. It should be noted that some helmets have a knob to refine the tightening of the helmet.
Standards: All ski and snowboard helmets must comply with the CE standard (CE-EN 1077), this is the ski standard. Helmets specific to ski touring and ski mountaineering competitions also have the mountaineering standard (CE EN 12492). Manufacturers have developed high-performance shock absorption systems now. One example is the MIPS system, which diffuses and absorbs shock waves for even greater protection. The ski and snowboard helmet is considered as a PPE (personal protective equipment) and as such it is normally mandatory to change it every 5 years. (complete headset with rigid ears).
The different ski and snowboard helmets.
There are a multitude of models of ski helmets adapted to the needs of each individual. Some have flexible ears, for more comfort and better hearing. Ventilation of the helmet is also very important. Check whether it is adjustable or not. Some Bluetooth skis headsets allow you to connect your mobile phone and thus listen to music or make calls while skiing. In recent years, visor helmets have been coming in force. In addition to the look, they offer the advantage of having a solid and always well adjusted visor. High-end visor helmets have a photochromic visor that adapts to the intensity of light.
