We believe that a ski or snowboard helmet is an essential piece of equipment. They are also becoming a necessary requirement of some travel insurers and ski resorts.
The increased popularity in helmets has prompted a surge in development and as a result they are becoming increasingly robust and lightweight. Other developments include adjustable fitting options, such as Salomon's Custom Air system that is moulds itself to the wearers head shape precisely. There are also an array of venting systems, many of which are adjustable, removable ear pads and even inbuilt headphones. With prices starting from as little as £40 and top brands like Marker, Salomon, K2, and Bolle there is no longer any excuse not to wear a helmet.
