Ski touring helmets: essential protection for skiers and mountaineers

Ski touring helmets are an essential piece of equipment for ensuring safety in the mountains. It offers protection against falls, impacts and debris, while being designed to be lightweight and well-ventilated, suitable for the intense efforts of climbing and technical descents. Whether you're an amateur ski tourer or an experienced mountaineer, choosing the right helmet is crucial to your safety and comfort. Here's a guide to help you select the right ski touring helmet for your needs.

Features of ski touring helmets: Lightness and ventilation

When choosing a ski touring helmet, there are a number of features to consider to ensure protection and comfort:

  • Lightweight: A lightweight helmet reduces fatigue during long ascents and offers optimum comfort. Modern materials such as polycarbonate, EPS (expanded polystyrene) and EPP (expanded polypropylene) enable us to manufacture helmets that are both lightweight and robust.
  • Ventilation: Good ventilation is essential to prevent overheating and wick away perspiration. Ski touring helmets often feature multiple adjustable ventilation openings to adapt to changing weather conditions.
  • Fit: A precise adjustment system adjusts the helmet to the shape of your head for a secure, comfortable fit. Look for helmets with knurled adjustment systems or adjustable straps.
  • Versatility: Helmets designed for ski touring should be versatile, offering protection for skiing, mountaineering and other mountain activities. Some models are certified for multiple standards (skiing, mountaineering, cycling) for multi-sport use.
  • Comfort and compatibility: The helmet must be compatible with other equipment such as goggles or masks, and offer maximum comfort with removable, washable linings.
