HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SKI HELMET?

Indispensable, even mandatory for children during ski lessons, choosing a good ski helmet is essential when getting kitted out. Size, ventilation, with or without a visor ... follow the guide when choosing your ski helmet.

You should choose your ski helmet based on 4 criteria: size, ventilation, lightness and visor

 

SIZE 

To get your helmet size, use a tape measure to measure your head size, passing well above the ears, eyebrows at the front and the widest part of the skull at the back (on the occiput). The objective is to measure the circumference of the skull at its largest point.

Tip: If you don't have a tape measure, just take a piece of tape or a long lace, place around your head and then measure with a ruler.

VENTILATION

To aerate and wick away moisture:

GOOD VENTILATION

Between 2 and 8 ventilation holes

OPTIMAL VENTILATION

More than 8 ventilation holes:

ACTIVE VENTILATION

ability to manually close the ventilation holes.

PASSIVE VENTILATION

No option to adjust the ventilation

LIGHTNESS

Helmets are increasingly lightweight so you can forget about them once on your head.

 

From 360g to 450 in adult size L

VERY LIGHTWEIGHT

From 450g to 520 g in adult size L

LIGHTWEIGHT

More than 520g in adult size L:

NORMAL LIGHTWEIGHT

VISOR

WITH VISOR

Some helmets are equipped with a visor which replaces the ski mask. If you wear glasses normally, we recommend this model, which offers increased comfort.

WITHOUT VISOR

If you choose a ski helmet without a visor, we recommend wearing a ski mask that will work better with your helmet than just sunglasses.
