The ski helmet protects you

Winters go by and the number of people going down the slopes increases every year. Although the wearing of a ski helmet is on the increase, it is more and more recommended by professionals, who themselves wear them. Indeed, the ski helmet protects you from serious injuries such as blows to the neck for example. You will have the choice of the ski helmet you want since we have different models, ski helmet with visor? Or do you prefer a ski helmet without a visor so you can put on your own ski mask?

Beware, just because you wear a ski helmet doesn't mean you're untouchable! A false sense of security can lead to riskier behaviour on the slopes. Although a ski helmet can prevent many injuries, it is not magic and can leave you traumatized in case of impact. These shocks will obviously be less violent than if you go down the slopes without this protection.

Good reasons to wear a ski helmet :

- Protection: protect your head in case of a fall

- Safety: reducing impact injuries

- Comfort: keeps your head warm and dry.

- Adaptable to everyone: there are adjustable helmets for men and women as well as children.

The composition of a ski helmet

The different parts :

- Clamping: The tightening straps are located on each side and meet under your chin, allowing the ski helmet to be held securely on your head. Often annoying, these straps are improved with a small protection, to avoid friction and therefore irritation.

- The size adjustment : Nowadays, helmets are more and more presented with a tightening wheel (Click to Fit for example), located at the back of your head. This is very effective and allows optimal comfort with a helmet perfectly adjusted to your head circumference but also an incredible safety since the helmet will stay in place, even in case of a fall.

- Earpieces: The ski helmet earpieces can be hard or soft. Designed to be comfortable but also to guarantee optimal safety, these ears cover the entire contour of your ears and go down to the bottom of your cheeks. Don't panic, you'll hear everything your friends and family say! These earpieces are sometimes designed with a Bluetooth system allowing you to make or receive calls wherever you are.

- The hull: The shell is the most important part of the helmet since it is the one that will protect you in case of impact. Often ventilated to ensure optimal comfort, there are different types of shells. Your choice will obviously depend on the design, but also on the ventilation system and the technologies used for your safety.

- The mask attachment: On all models, a system is designed on the back of your helmet to keep your goggle in place, whether it is on your eyes or on your head. Easy to use, this little accessory will make you the happiest skier/skier.

The different technologies :

It is important to know technologies that can be used during the manufacturing process ski helmets. Here are the three most present technologies on the current market:

- In Mold System The "Slip on" feature: allows two layers of the helmet to be joined together for a significant weight saving. The lightness of this all-mountain ski helmet will then be the absolute advantage of this system.

- MIPS System this technology reduces the force of the impact on your brain. Indeed, in the event of a shock or fall, the ski helmet absorbs the impact with a slight rotation of the shell. This system slides the skull along the shell to prevent the brain from hitting the skull.

- Koroyd System This material absorbs energy on impact. This system therefore makes it possible to increase air inlets without compromising your protection. Racing/all mountain ski helmets with the Koryod system are lightweight yet durable.

How to choose your ski helmet?

The all-mountain ski helmet is an essential piece of equipment. That's why it's important to choose the right one. Here, Alpinstore explains the principal features a ski helmet:

- Its size: which is often adjustable, allows you to personalize your helmet and thus offer you optimal comfort. Once in place, the helmet should not move. If this is the case, then tighten it with the chin strap or the wheel at the back of your head. You can also differentiate between women's ski helmets, as the size is often between 55 and 58. As for men's ski helmets, the size is above size 58.

- Its weight : The majority of the models have a so-called classic cut, representing less than 550g which seems reasonable in terms of weight.

- His earpieces: Soft or hard-eared earpieces? The choice is simple since it will depend on your desires. Opt for hard earphones for optimal protection; Opt for soft earphones for incredible comfort.

- Its ventilation: It's very hot when concentration is at its highest. It is therefore important to have a helmet that is sufficiently ventilated to avoid sweating. Depending on the openings on the helmet shell, ventilation will be more or less strong.
