Not something to lose too much sleep about, but there are two key techniques used to construct a ski helmet.
Injection Moulded ABS Hard Shell
The classic construction. A thicker hard shell is glued to the inner foam. Often more durable, and cost less than other designs.
Often lighter and cooler than traditional helmets, they allow better ventilation systems and can achieve a lower-profile look. Often considered to be a premium approach.
Multi-directional impact protection system. Designed to reduce brain injuries, by allowing the shell and liner to slide over each other.View Our Wide Range of MIPS helmets
You hear about it in F1 cars and TDF bikes, so it must be cool? Pretty much. Offering unbeatable strength to weight ratio, so you can get a super light, super tough helmet. Just don't mention the price!
A brand new technology that combines a flexible outer shell with an impact absorbing liner to manage low and high impacts.
EPS vs EPP
EPS is the classic foam that is used in ski helmets. The cells crush on impact, which slows the head down gently. EPS is designed for one big impact. EPP has started to appear in some premium helmets in recent years, and offers a multi-impact solution. Whilst this foam still crushes on impact, it has a higher memory, which allows it to return back to shape after a crash. Ideal for park riders.
Everything we sell will meet either the US ASTM F2040 or the European EN1077. This is a minimum standard, and most helmets will be far tougher.
