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.

Details:
  • Product Category: Misc.
Physical Description:
  • Color: Bear Midnight Blue
Features:
  • TRUSTED BY THE BEST: Wildhorn is a proud supplier of the US Ski Team. Designed in Utah by avid skiers and boarders, our snow helmets offer the protection your little one will need on the mountain. For young groms that never sit down, the Spire youth ski helmet and goggle combo helps protect their domes with an in-mold construction and a comfortable, customizable fit while they're getting faster and faster on the slopes.
  • SAFETY & PERFORMANCE: Reliable protection is a must when sending your young shredder out into the wild. The in-mold construction provides adult-worthy protection in a youth-specific size. An integrated adjustable dial fit system helps customize the right fit and comfort for different head shapes and sizes. The Spire is also ASTM certified which means the helmet has passed all regulatory requirements for safety.
  • INCLUDES PREMIUM GOGGLE: We matched each Spire helmet character with premium ski goggles. The Bear comes with a 57% VLT lens. This lens is ideal for use in most conditions (cloudy and sunny). The semi-mirroring is helpful in allowing parents or instructors to see the eyes of the young skiers. The lens has an anti-scratch and anti-fog coating along with 100% UV protection. The straps are fully adjustable.
  • FIT: Ideal for ages 3-8 (use sizing chart for instructions on how to measure) this ultralight low-profile helmet protects and deflects the impact of slushy tumble rolls. We know your little ones grow faster than we’d like so we included 2 liners with your kids helmet. As they grow you can change the liner size to fit their current measurements and comfort.
  • VENTILATION: The ventilation channels integrated into the helmet draw fresh air in the front and pull moisture out the back. These built in-channels help to keep your little rider’s goggles clear and aid in maintaining a balanced and comfortable temperature all day long.
