On The Slopes: Ski helmets
Over the years it has become the norm for almost all skiers and boarders to wear a helmet. Helmets not only reduce the chance of injury, but they're warmer, more comfortable, colorful and stylish. It is recommended that you should replace your helmets after about five years due to the fact that the protective material in the helmet can break down over time and wear and tear.
If you're looking for a new helmet, here are some options.
POC's Auric Cut Backcountry helmet features POC's patent pending rotational impact protection system, called SPIN. The SPIN pads allow the helmet to move relative to the head during a fall, reducing the force transmitted to the brain. In combination with SPIN, the helmet features an advanced multi impact EPP liner which can withstand repetitive impacts and a solid ABS shell which protects and ensures the helmets strength and integrity. A size adjustment system offers a flexible fit and the adjustable vents on the front and top of the helmet provide adjustable ventilation. The Auric Backcountry helmet is versatile, very safe and durable. Ideal for your skiing or snowboarding challenges in the backcountry.
Ruroc's new RG1-DX design offers unparalleled levels of protection and visibility while out on the slopes. The helmet is formed with a hardened ABS shell, a patented RAID EPS liner, which is a system of inter-connected vents and channels which acts to create a vacuumlike suction and removes all fog from within the goggle. The magnetic frame MagLoc Goggles come standard with the Ruroc RG1-DX. It is the world's first fully ventilated magnetic lens. It has all the benefits of a magnetic lens without the risk of losing your lens in a crash. Also included with your Ruroc helmet is their high Impact detachable face mask which protects you from rocks, rails and subzero wind chill. Each mask is fitted with two spring loaded clips for easy on off mask functionality. There's an action camera mount for your GoPro or camera of choice under the X visor. Just remove the visor and there's your camera mount.
POC and Ruroc are great helmet choices for your winter adventure. Each offer comfort and safety in a variety of styles and colors.
