More and more professionals: riders, skiers, snowboarders and cyclists are wearing helmets in freestyle, freeride, alpine skiing or mountain biking. This protective piece has become fashionable! There are many shapes, colors and styles you can choose from. However, many people jib at wearing helmets! They think they will look stupid or like a coward who is very afraid being on the slope. But that is such a big mistake! Remember: even if you consider yourself as a safe rider, you can't be sure that others riders will behave reasonably.

 

Helmets are not only comfortable to wear while skiing or snowboarding. Their first and most important task is to prevent head injuries or even save your life! When winter sports became popular, people quickly realized that they might be dangerous if you are not careful or not so well-equipped. Helmets for skiing and snowboarding are designed for cold weather. They were created to keep your head warm and comfortable. This is also a very important factor, right after protecting function. Your helmet needs to work well with goggles - there should be no gap on your forehead, between helmet and goggles.

Remember also that a good helmet has to be certified! It is about your safety - it needs to be checked by specialists whether it really works or not. A helmet with malfunction may do more harm than good! Helmets can have features like removable liners - you can go from winter to summer with such an ease. Of course, it needs to have an adjustable fastening and might have some ventilation holes.

This short guide can teach you how to size and choose the right helmet for you:

1. Measure your head - use a soft measuring tape, wrap it around your head. Take this measurement from about 1 inch above your eyebrows and ears. Transfer the number into centimeters - and here you have your head size!

2. Try it on - there should be no excess space between the helmet and your head. Aso, pay attention to any pain or pressure points.

3. Shake your head around! - The helmet is too big if the helmet moves on its own. Use your hand to move the helmet a little to the left and right, up and down. If the skin of your head moves along with the helmet, everything is alright!

4. Keep it on your head for some time - you should be comfortable enough to wear it an entire day on the slope!

 

Please, remember: wearing a too big helmet may be even more dangerous than not wearing it at all! Don't forget about this important issue while buying a helmet for your child - do not leave any room to grow! If you're not into buying a helmet only for one season, you may consider renting it or buying an adjustable fit system to help the helmet fit perfectly.

 

Now you are ready to buy a helmet adjusted to your needs. You just need to choose a style and color...which may be more tricky than you think :). At 2ski-glisse.ch you will be offered such a big variety of colors, shapes and patterns, that you will not be sure which one to choose!
