Snowboard Helmets Will Give You Extra Confidence
Snowboard helmets will not only keep your head safe but also give you that confidence boost so that you can land whatever trick you are attempting. Built to absorb impacts, all the snowboard helmets that you see here have been officially approved for snowboarding use.
Helmet design has come a long way in recent years and you will now see a wide range of stylish helmets on the market. Along with classic designs, you will also have the option of helmets with ventilation systems to regulate your head temperature, as well as helmets that support interchangeable lenses.
A common question is what is the difference between snowboard helmets and regular bike helmets. The biggest difference is that regular cycling helmets are generally not built to withstand the same level of impact compared to skiing and snowboarding helmets. On this page, you will notice that many products are labeled as ski helmets. These offer the exact same protection as snowboard helmets.
What Size Snowboard Helmet Do I Need?
The most important aspect of your snow helmet is the fit. It needs to feel snug and comfortable - if it’s not fitting well then will it not only be uncomfortable but also not give you maximum protection. To get the right size, measure the circumference of the largest part of your head just above your ears with a soft tape measure. If you want to know more about how to do this, then you can check out our guide on How to Wear Your Helmet.
Sizes differ depending on the individual model, so be sure to check out the size guide for the individual helmet. Furthermore, many helmets are designed so that you can adjust the fit to get an even snugger fit. Also, when choosing a helmet remember to consider if you will be wearing a beanie underneath and that you will want to get one that is compatible with your goggles.
There’s a range of other Snowboard Protection that will help you stay safe on the slopes. If you do find yourself falling often when attempting tricks, then getting some Snowboard Impact Shorts will help soften many impacts.
