Colour Name: BlackSize: X-Large Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This helmet will protect your head in an accident on the piste. Always use a helmet when skiing or boarding. Alas, the very thin padding lining the helmet and the sharp edge on the neck strap both contribute to it being uncomfortable to wear, and it is not really suitable for daily use in variable conditions for three main reasons.

1. SAFETY. The adjustment strap on the back is worse than useless and cuts into the back of the neck, the helmet is much better after having removed this strap entirely. If wrongly adjusted the hard edges on this strap could be very dangerous and might injure the neck when the head tips back.

2. There is NO ADJUSTMENT to the ventilation. The product description lies. Your head will freeze solid in the colder weather without an additional skull-cap or balaclava.

3. It does not cover enough of the skull base at the back.

On the positive side;

1. It has the usual adjustments for the chinstrap.

2. There is some thin padding to separate your head from the expanded polystyrene inner shell.

3. There is a goggles retaining strap with a securing popper so they will not be detached and lost on impact.

4. The ear-pads are detachable/replaceable.

5. It claims to meet EN1077 Class B.

It does not help that all the supplied instructions are in German, and I asked a German friend to translate the finer details of them for me. I needn't have bothered as there is nothing useful that is not already obvious from looking at the helmet.

the review highlighting issues around the non adjustable ventilation holes and the fastener at the back is probably looking into things too much.

I go snowboarding for 1 week a year - I used it for 6 days on the slopes. I can find little fault in it for the casual user. Yes the vents are not adjustable but apart from the vent on top they are blocked by the padding so they make little difference in any case. The tightening wheel can feel a little uncomfortable at times - mostly when you tilt your head back - but in six days of wearing, when I was actually on the slope I never even realised I had the helmet on.

This was my first experience of using a helmet and I found pretty much all I needed in this item, its not perfect but fine for the casual user.

Good helmet, lots of key features, but the size guide doesn't work, and dispite trying it on 2 other people with extra large heads, the helmet:

a. Doesn't fit.
b. Looks far too small.

Therefore, if you have a small / medium head. Buy it. If not, you will look rediculous and feel very uncomfortable.

I would recommend the GIRO x-large helmet.

Bought it for paragliding.
Not the sexiest helmet ever but it looks protective and that what matters.

I had to get rid of the back-head size adjuster as it was not comfortable when looking up at the wing. (I was lucky the helmet is a tight fit)
Presumably for snow sports this would not be an issue :)

Colour Name: BlackSize: X-Large Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Not being a great skier I've been thinking about getting a helmet for a couple of seasons, especially given the propensity of poor skiers out there who tend to go too fast, don't know how to stop and don't know that people downslope have priority. I've already had one person run into me and tear a tendon in my hand, so head protection seems in order.

This helmet looked the job. For a start it looks pretty cool, with a racy form made from nice matt black plastic. The helmet is sculpted in such a way as to hold the strap of your goggles in place. There's also fixing strap at the back of the helmet, which closes with a pop stud to keep your goggles with you if you should wipe out and knock them loose.

The removable ear-warmers integrate into the straps do a good job of covering your ears, but have mesh in them so that you don't end up deaf to your ski buddies. (Last year one of our friends never knew when we were talking to her because of her ear pads). They're also positioned in such a way that they don't put pressure on the arms of your sunglasses should goggles not be necessary.

The chin strap fastener can be opened and closed by gloved hands, though it is a little fiddly, while the head tightness is adjusted by a knob set at the back of the head, which can be adjusted by gloved fingers. There's also plenty of aeration to prevent you head getting too hot and sweaty and the whole thing is nice and light. The ventilation is not, as has been pointed out elsewhere, adjustable, so in really poor conditions you might suffer from head freeze.

Impact protection is certified, so you can only hope that it is sufficient, without taking a knock I couldn't really say. It is certainly better than nothing at all.

This was a great fit. I have a gargantuan head and this size had more than enough adjustment to make this a tight fit or a comfortable fit.

The whole experience was initially confusing as I never previously wore a helmet, but after a few hours I thought nothing of it and eventually never noticed I was wearing it.

I could happily recommend this helmet, and my friends were quite impressed with it too. Especially at the price
