Downhill, slalom, or GS. When it comes to shaving seconds in the pursuit of speed, Mips focuses on safety so you can focus on performance.
When split seconds count, you need a helmet that can keep up. Mips® safety systems in ski helmets give you confidence and comfort in your race against the clock.
Alpine racing helmets are designed for speed and safety. Here are some of the key factors to consider when choosing one:
The best alpine race helmet is one that fits properly. It typically fits a bit tighter than a recreational snow helmet, and an in-store fitting is recommended.
Some alpine racing helmets come with an attachable and adjustable chin bar for added protection that’s especially useful for slalom racing.
Make sure the helmet meets the safety standards in your country. Most competitions require that the helmet meet basic standards (including EN1077 and/or ASTM2040).
Modern alpine racing helmets put an emphasis on protection including Mips® safety systems and other innovations.
Make sure the helmet is designed with a low-friction layer that’s intended to help reduce rotational force to the head during certain angled impacts.
