Brand Profile : RED Ski & Snowboard Helmets

RIDE FOREVER – Bailing 20 times before you land it, pushing through the blood, bruises and fear – that’s what RED is all about. It’s the first on the hill and the last to leave, riding every day, every night, hiking ’til the last patch melts. It’s non-stop laps in the rain, waking up at 4am to hit a handrail, and feeling the freedom of linking that first turn. For those who aren’t afraid of what it takes to reach the next level, welcome.

From the first snowboard specific helmet in history to the latest creations like the superior fit of the RED Air Fit System and premium sound REDphones, RED remain dedicated to their shredding founders, formative designers, and fearless riders. With the latest lightweight materials, rider-driven features, and easily customisable designs, RED makes protection a no-brainer.

RED Helmets was founded in 1996 and is dedicated to the evolution of impact protection by offering products that revolutionise the balance of style, fit and technology. The brand is now part of the Burton family

Here are some of the awesome tech features a RED helmet can bring you…

Safety First…

All RED helmets have protection certifications, ASTM 2040 / CE 1077B/CPSC

Airvanced Ventilation™

Rider-controlled venting that allows variable airflow to the inner helmet microclimate and limits the invasion of outside elements.

GlovesOn™ Buckle

The combination of the tri-slide buckle and away-from-collar positioning makes the helmets easy to adjust with gloves on.

FineTuning™

Customize the level of warmth, padding, and protection desired for helmets, accessories and body shielding with modular padding systems and removal options. When it comes to audio, upgrade any 2010 or 2011 adult RED helmet with REDphones™

Quick Clip II™ Ear Pads

Simply snap in place and you’re ready to ride. Improved locking pads add warmth to enhance comfort and easily convert for multi-season use.

Undercovered™

This design feature allows you to wear your beanie and/or goggles under your helmet, while maintaining the benefits of air flow. The Velcro-free helmet interior keeps your beanie from sticking to the innards of the shell. Feature available on RED Mutiny and RED Hi-Fi helmets.

Goggle Gasket

Fully removable shield that eliminates the gap between ski goggles and helmet while remaining windproof and breathable

Unison Technology™

Where form, fit, and function become one. This ultra smart technology engineers the entire fit system, helmet shape and mechanics in unison, leading to reduced bulk and weight, a superior fit, and ultimately a better riding experience.

REDphones™ Audio Accessory Compatible

This premium speaker system brings you flawless audio integration on and off the mountain . The 40mm drivers plug-and-play into helmet ear pads while the 57mm drivers work in both the helmet ear pads as well as RED’s premium DJ headset. REDphones™ are compatible with iPod® or other music players and feature on-cord volume/mute control. NEW for 2011, REDphones Premium include Smartphone cord with inline audio controls.

NEW Air Band™ 270 Fit System

Air-fuelled comfort in a low-profile headband. Adjust the soft, fleece wrapped Air Band™ with the pump-button on the right webbing strap to fine-tune your fit. Choose between the Air Band™ 270 available on the Theory and Aletta or the 180 fit system, available on the Hi-Fi and Women’s Hi-Fi, each offering a different level of customized comfort.
