The smart way to shred

Snowboard helmets aren’t just for flying through the trees and hucking cliffs. We all take the occasional tumble, and every skier or snowboarder can benefit from the added safety, warmth and comfort of a Mips snow helmet.

Helmet safety

Checklist for choosing a snowboard helmet

There are many factors when choosing your perfect helmet. Here are a few to consider:

  • Comfort and fit

    This is the most important one to get right. If a helmet is too big, it can move around on your head and won’t properly protect you in a crash. Too small, and it won’t sit right on your head, compromising your safety and comfort.  

  • Conditions and terrain

    Are you looking for added warmth in the cold? Or do you spend more time trekking uphill for backcountry runs? Different helmets have different features, including adjustable vents for added ventilation or detachable liners or ear pads for warmer spring conditions. 

  • Safety certifications

    Make sure the helmet meets the safety standards in your country. Some common ones include the ASTM F2040 snow helmet certification in the U.S., and CE EN1077 in Europe. 

  • Special features

    Modern snow helmets are packed with purpose-built features including adjustable brims, magnetic chinstraps, Boa fit adjustment dials, and integrated audio speakers.  

  • 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.
