Buyer's Guide

Of course style is always a factor when buying a ski helmet. However, it is much more important for a ski helmet to fit well and be well made - since it will not provide adequate protection otherwise. Not to worry: As long as a ski helmet fulfills the norms CN EN 1077 A or CN 1077 B you can be sure that it complies with noggin-protection safety standards.

A ski helmet's fit can also easily be put to the test. Simply place the helmet on your head without fastening the chin strap and shake your head. If it does not wobble or slip from side to side, the helmet fits.

Have a look at our online Ski Helmet Buyer's Guide for an overview of everything you need to know when buying a ski helmet.

Ski Helmet Brands

Giro, on of the leading ski helmet manufacturers, consistently manages to produce affordable helmets for skiers and snowboarders that meet safety standards and have great style and features. POC on the other hand emphasizes innovative technology and sleek designs in their helmets. No wonder that POC ski helmets are especially popular among freeriders.

The brands Julbo und Scott also make up part of our high-quality ski helmet selection that includes something to suit everyone's individual taste and wallet thickness.

Features

One feature to always look for in a ski helmet is easily adjustable size. A wheel at the back to adjust the ski helmet to fit your specific head shape is ideal. Those who like to record their daring descents with a GoPro camera should also look for attachment options.

Ski Helmet Buyer's Guide

Ski Helmet Buyer's Guide

Not too long ago one was still an outsider when wearing a ski helmet on the slopes.

The times have changed however; these days, the majority of skiers wear helmets, which not only provide safety but have also become fashionable in combination with matching ski goggles. Though what was once considered dorky is now a style factor, there are still some important things to look for when buying a helmet - besides how well it matches the rest of your gear.

Fit and comfort

No matter how good it looks, a helmet is not likely to be worn if it is uncomfortable. Even without fastening the chin strap a helmet should fit snugly and comfortably. A great way to test a helmet's fit is to place it on your head without fastening it, and to shake your head from side to side. The helmet should not slip from its position.

Many modern helmets have additional means of adjusting the fit, e.g. a wheel in the back that can be tightened or loosened to fit individual head shapes.

Once you have found a helmet that fits, it is time to have a closer look at the chin strap. The strap should be fully padded, easy to adjust, and feature a secure fastener that is easy to open and close. A fastener located to one side instead of directly und ther chin provides additional comfort.

It also worth noting that women's head shapes do not differ significantly from men's. The primary differences of women's ski helmets lies in their look, though some may be a bit lighter or offer room for a ponytail in the back.

Sweet Protection ski helmet

A helmet's comfort is largely dependant on its padding, which should ideally have the following qualities:

  • removable and washable
  • skin-friendly
  • breathable
  • quick-drying
  • heat-retaining

Ski helmet construction

A ski helmet consists of an outer shell that provides protection from sharp objects, and an inner shell for dampening impacts. Depending on their construction, ski helmets are generally categorized either as hard-shell helmets or in-mold helmets.

  • In-mold helmets are made in a single step, whereby the inner and outer shell are formed together and silmultaneously attached to each other. This type of ski helmet is light, while remaining highly robust. In-molding is most often used to produce helmets with a polycarbonate outer shell. A disadvantage of in-mold helmets: Cold air hits the scalp directly through the open vents.
  • Hard-shell helmets are harder (i.e. more puncture-resistant), thanks to carbon (sometimes combined with Kevlar) and ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) used for the outer shell. For this type of helmet the outer and inner shells are produced seperately and then glued or otherwise cemented together later in the manufacturing process. It is thus possible to integrate more sophisticated ventilation systems between the two layers. High-end helmets also incorporate a monocoque grid between the two shells, which further improves the helmet's impact-dampening capabilities.

The helmets' inner shells are usually made of EPS (Expanded Polystyrol), a specialized kind of styrofoam. The material is shaped under a specific pressure and temperature to provide excellent shock-absorbing qualities.

Ventilation

Most people tend not to be overly concerned about sweating inside their helmet when the weather is freezing and blustery. One should however keep in mind that a ski helmet needs to be comfortable on warm spring days as well. For this reason it is worth taking a closer look at:

  • how the vents are arranged (unfortunately largely dictated by norms)
  • whether the vents can be closed on cold days
  • how much ventilation the helmet actually provides in cases where the outer shell makes it hard to tell

When scrutinizing a helmet's ventilation system it can quickly become obvious where some of the price differences among helmets are rooted. Though both a cheap and an expensive helmet are usually built to satisfy the same norm, a high-end helmet will often feature a more elaborate and effective ventilation system that is also more costly to produce.

TIP: Matching ski goggles

Whenever possible, it is best to buy a ski helmet in combination with a pair of ski goggles that go with it - and not just for looks.

Just like goggles, helmets come in various shapes and sizes. Matching them up after the fact can be a pain, and a mismatched helmet-goggle combination will often create a gap between the helmet the top of the goggles. This gap lets cold air hit your brow while skiing, creating brain freezes and general discomfort.

Additional features

To stand out in the ski helmet market many manufacturers have come up with additional features - some of which are immensely useful, and others less so.

One feature a ski helmet should definitely have is:

  • a goggle strap holder on the rear of the helmet

Some other useful features:

  • extra clips or grooves on the sides of the helmet to keep the goggle strap in place
  • a visor-attachment for extra shade
  • removable ear pads for spring skiing

And finally, a few completely useless features with a solid fun factor:

  • ear pads with integrated headphones
  • Robocop/astronaught-style full-face visors
  • exchangable design elements
TIP: Crash damage

Though there may not be any visible cracks or damage, a helmet should be retired after it has taken a hard hit. Even invisible hairline cracks can damage a helmet's structural integrity and severly diminish the protection it provides.

Safety norms

There are two European safety norms for ski helmets, CN EN 1077 A and 1077 B. Practically only racing-style helmets (with protective ear coverage) satisfy the older, more stringent norm EN 1077 A.

The new norm EN 1077 B was defined to address skate-influenced helmet styles, which often feature removable ear pads instead of a full shell.
