I was disappointed when my first choice of ski helmet was unavailable for purchase due to lack of stocks. The decision to buy this particular brand was based on user reports. Having trawled around the various other options, I settled on the Hudora but was a little concerned with price v. quality. I need not have worried. This helmet was a perfect fit, being comfortable in all aspects and was manufactured in Germany to the required spec. I would highly recommend this helmet to other buyers.
Very comfortable and excellent German build quality. Ear warmers can be removed and air vents help regulate temperature. The protective layer is solid and would quite take a strong force to crack. That said the padding inside is lower density and I cant comment how it compares to other varieties similar to cycling helmets (foam plus plastic skin) that may be better at absorbing a strong force. For me, as an intermediate infrequent on piste skier, it ticked the box.
