Skiing and snowboarding: wearing a helmet strongly recommended
Falls can be numerous in winter sports, whether in the resort or during off-piste practice: a poor landing after a bump, a faulty edge in a bend, a patch of ice or quite simply an encounter. undesired with another skier or any obstacle. If fractures and sprains are frequent, a fall or collision can also cause a blow to the head, with sometimes serious consequences.
Wearing a ski helmet is strongly recommended for children, and compulsory in the vast majority of ski schools. Teenagers and adults are also increasingly adopting it, for good reason: a ski helmet can often prevent a fracture and considerably limit the scope of a concussion or head trauma.
There is therefore no age or level to order your ski helmet: beginners, experienced or professional skiers and snowboarders can all adopt it.
The major ski helmet brands
Many equipment manufacturers have been involved in the design and manufacture of ski helmets for years. At HawaiiSurf, we reference the biggest brands:
K2 , American brand founded in 1963
Anon, product range of the famous brand Burton
Oakley, manufacturer of sports glasses which also offers ski helmets
Salomon, an essential French brand on the slopes
Marker, historical American equipment supplier since 1952.
You will therefore inevitably find the ski helmet whose design will make you succumb, taking advantage of a rich choice of several dozen references.
Order a ski helmet adapted to your practice
Beginner or experienced skier, occasional or regular practitioner: your level and the time spent on skis or snowboard on your feet should guide you in choosing the right ski helmet.
You must be sensitive to several fundamental criteria:
Ventilation: choose a well-ventilated ski helmet for better comfort
The weight: a light helmet, less than 450 grams, will be forgotten
The size: a helmet that is too small or too big will be uncomfortable and will lose efficiency.
