Snowboarding Helmets

0

The most important parameter when choosing a snowboard helmet is its size. You can find the appropriate size simply by measuring the circumference of your head with a measuring tape. If you did your measuring right, the helmet should fit you well even if you don’t try it on beforehand.

Helmet size

First, determine your helmet size by measuring the circumference of your head. Take a soft measuring tape and wrap it around your head about 2 cm above your eyebrows and ears.

Size XS WITH M L XL
Head circumference 52-54 cm 54-56 cm 56-58 cm 58-60 cm 60-62 cm

Some helmets are partially adjustable. On the back they have a special dial that lets you tighten or loosen the helmet (for a few cm) according to your needs.

Helmet types

Some people insist that you need different helmets for skiing and snowboarding, but the truth is that unless you compete professionally, you don’t. For amateurs, any helmet with soft ear pads will do just fine. The ear pads keep your ears warm in freezing temperatures (so you don’t have to wear a hat under the helmet) and they are just more comfortable overall, compared to hard-shelled professional helmets. Some models even have removable pads for extra comfort. This comes in handy when skiing on warm, sunny days.

Vents

  • If you are a freestyle rider, look for helmets with multiple vents (3 or more). Freestyle riding is quite physically taxing and people tend to sweat a lot, so having good air circulation around the head is important. The vents in these helmets generally aren’t adjustable and cannot be closed.
  • Helmets designed for downhill skiers usually have two or even no vents. The vents are usually adjustable and can be closed when needed.

Useful snowboard helmet properties

  • Removable inner lining (washable).
  • A visor (a short lip at the front of the helmet) prevents water and snow from dripping down your face or goggles.
  • Some helmets are equipped with ski goggles, so you don’t have to purchase them separately. If you wear prescription glasses, check if the helmet goggles let you keep your glasses on.

Do I have to wear a helmet?

Adults are generally not obligated by law to wear a helmet, but it is definitely recommended. The rules are more strict with children, as most snowboard and ski schools require that young skiers must wear a helmet. The organisers of these schools and courses are responsible for the safety of persons entrusted into their care, so they can’t let them go on a slope without adequate equipment. Moreover, in many European countries helmets are compulsory for children under 14-15 years of age.
