The Carrera Nerve is a great helmet with a more narrow fit. I tested this one on a very cold day on Snoqualmie Pass, and it did keep my head very warm. If you want a helmet that keeps you warm, this may be the one for you. I especially enjoyed the comfort of having earpieces and still being able to hear clearly what was happening on the slopes around me.
The first thing that struck me about the Red Frequency was its comfortable fit and easily adjustable ventilation system. And most important to me (who notoriously, and possibly foolishly, keeps on choosing hats over helmets) the helmet is extremely light weight. From the point of safety, this helmet gets as high marks as you can get and comes close to the perfect fit simply by adjusting the circumference of the helmet liner.
I also love the fact that I can remove the ear-pads for those spring skiing days here at Snoqualmie Pass when ski jackets and pants are swapped for t-shirts and shorts.
Another light-weight helmet with one of the best air ventilation systems of all helmets I tested. With all the vents open you can really feel the air moving through. What’s really nice is the fact that you have the ability to plug some of the vents, which does help on colder days. The padding in this one may not be as soft or thick as in other helmets, but I personally liked the feel as I sometimes forgot that I was actually wearing a helmet. That also had to do with the helmet’s great peripheral vision due to a wider front cut.
This is also a very light helmet with great fit even though you cannot adjust the headband. The ventilation system works very well and can be adjusted by a lever.
I loved the feel and weight of this helmet, and it happened to fit me perfectly. Try this one on, definitely.
The liner’s suede fabric feels different from any of the helmets I tested, and wow, is it comfortable! I was really happy to hear that the liner has added Agion to kill bacteria and mold. Very helpful for a season of sweating in the Moguls! The removable ear pads make this one very comfortable in all weather conditions.
Featuring a basic design, the very reasonable price of the Smith Holt Helmet will surprise you. This helmet has a simple yet stylish and unique look. It offers an effective ventilation system that can be adjusted by adding or removing elongated plugs. Includes a lifetime warranty.
This is a very basic helmet, and I really liked it. In my opinion, this is one of the cooler-looking helmets that really does have the appearance of a worker’s hard hat. And it is extremely reasonably priced! This helmet features soft Brock™ foam interior, which reforms to its original shape after an impact. Brock™ foam is a material that also evaporates moisture quickly and has a fast drying time. The liner features a visor, which is especially helpful on those bright sunny days on the slopes.
Another good helmet from RED with a very reasonable price. This one struck me as being the lightest of the bunch, and the ear pads are easily added and removed. Very warm and soft inside.
This is a wonderfully well-fitting, streamlined helmet, and it looks amazing! It is probably one of the safest helmets on the market, and although it’s built like a tank, it doesn’t look like one and is extremely lightweight. The helmet features a hard shell on the outside and an impact-absorbing liner for advanced head protection on the inside.
Between the liner and the shell you will find a layer of “Memory” foam that conforms to the shape of your head making for an incredible fit. The two air vents at the front are beautifully integrated into the design, and are reinforced with steel mesh to prevent penetration. I am told that POC's semi-hard shell is popular among extreme skiers and those who want to ride or ski hard and fast. I can understand why!
This is a lightweight, state-of-the-art helmet soled at a very reasonable price. And any of the eight stylish designs are sure to make you stand out in a crowd! The Boeri Tactics ten-vent ventilation system is superb - one of the best I have seen - because you can actually dial in your individual airflow preference. Another personal comfort feature is the unique strap adjustment system that ensures the perfect fit for any shape of head. We all know how funky liners can get after a long season, so the removable and washable liner is certainly an added plus.
Bern Macon Hard Hat Helmet works for me!
