Skiing Helmets


Skiing can be quite a dangerous sport, so safety measures are very important. In particular, there is a great risk of getting a head injury in a fall, impact or collision - unless you wear a helmet. A ski helmet can protect you from perhaps as much as 90% of head injuries.

Of course there is a wide choice of ski helmets available in the market, so you will have to consider your choice carefully. Things that you might want to consider include fit, style, certification, and the material the helmet is made from, as well as, of course, the price.

The different types of helmets that you might want to consider a include full shell, short shell, competition shell, and youth. Which is right for you depends on your needs:
  • A full shell helmet gives complete coverage, and helps keep the wind and elements too. Many full shell helmets also have venting to help regulate temperature. Full shell helmets are generally recommended for fast skiing.

  • A short shell helmet gives less coverage but usually comparable protection to a full shell helmet. Short shell helmets are a good choice if you feel uncomfortable wearing a full shell helmet.

  • Competition helmets are of course designed for competitions. If you are serious downhill competitor, you probably want one - but if you are just a recreational skier, you probably do not need one.

  • Youth helmets are of course designed for younger people with smaller heads than adults. Many youth helmets have removable pads which can be used to adjust fitting as the child's head grows - meaning that they can last for a while. When choosing a youth helmet, you should of course be looking for one designed to the same safety standard as adult helmets.
After you know the make and type of helmet that you want, the other issue to consider is the size. A helmet needs to not only be a good fit, but comfortable too.

In general, it is worth investing in a decent helmet. Better quality helmets tend to be more comfortable (better fit and better ventilation) as being safer. A good quality helmet can withstand a lot of damage (which would otherwise be damage to your head!), if you do have a serious accident. Finally, if you take good care of it, for example following only the manufacturer's recommendations of cleaning it, your ski helmet can last for many years.

Below are some ski helmets:
