Checklist for choosing an alpine helmet

Alpine racing helmets are designed for speed and safety. Here are some of the key factors to consider when choosing one: 

  • Comfort and fit

    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. 

  • Face protection

    Some alpine racing helmets come with an attachable and adjustable chin bar for added protection that’s especially useful for slalom racing. 

  • Race certification

    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). 

  • Added safety features

    Modern alpine racing helmets put an emphasis on protection including Mips® safety systems and other innovations. 

  • Rotational management

    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.
