However, we recommend them for skiers who ski at moderate speed. They are less windproof than a mask, which perfectly moulds to your nose and face. If you ski very fast, air can get in and it can be unpleasant. For the best airtightness, you must lower the visor as far as it will go.
If you can't, then this helmet is not suitable for you. Take plenty of time to try it on properly. You should not feel any areas of discomfort in the helmet or around the visor. If you do then try another model. For people who wear glasses, try the helmet with the pair you will be wearing and open/close the visor to check that there are no sticking points.Fogging on the glasses is not caused by the helmet. There are anti-fogging treatments for glasses. Measure your head's circumference in centimetres (around the middle of the forehead and just above the ears).
Choose the size that covers this measurement. Example: if you have a head circumference of 56 cm, you should try a helmet in size 55-59 cm. The adjustment wheel plays a key role in keeping your helmet secure. This system can be easily and precisely adjusted at any time using the easily accessible dial that you can even use with your skiing gloves.It also gives you comfort and maximum safety. Turn the dial to the right to tighten and to the left to loosen. This type of structure, known as In-Mold, features a polycarbonate outer shell that is moulded directly to the EPS liner.
The inner EPS liner absorbs shocks in the event of a collision. The whole thing is extremely lightweight. We recommend changing your ski helmet at least every 5 years unless it has sustained a significant impact in the meantime. Standard EN 1077:2007 is a European standard that applies to helmets used for cranial protection during downhill skiing and snowboarding.
This standard tests the ability to absorb shocks and resistance to penetration. Class A: protects the top and back of the head, as well as the ears and the side of the head. Class B: Protects the top and back of the head but does not cover the ears.
During practice, the ski helmet must be properly fitted and adjusted. It is essential to choose the right size. The head circumference must be adjusted using the thumb wheel. The chinstrap must be properly adjusted.
It's a bit like the seat belt in a car: if it's too loose, it will not perform its function and you will be less protected. Avoid putting a thick hat under your helmet as this will move the helmet away from your head and you won't be as well protected. Opt instead for a very thin beanie or balaclava that does not affect your safety. A helmet has good insulating properties.
There is often no point in adding anything else. Also, avoid adding a camera to your helmet as this can affect safety. The standard does not take into account any elements added to the helmet.
