A Guide to Helmet Buyers

Unfortunately we cannot accept returns on helmets. This is due to possible impacts or drops the helmet may have encountered, which could lessen the protective qualities of the helmet.

Make sure you like the look and fit. If your helmet isn’t comfortable, or you don’t like the look of it, you’re less likely to wear it - and it won’t protect you left in the chalet!

Assess your fit with eyewear in mind. Incorrect goggles can make the helmet or goggles unwearable.

What should the fit be like?
Your fit should be snug and tough everywhere on the head/ The helmet should not come off if you shake your head at the ground (with the chin strap done up). The chin strap should be tight enough to restrict movement of the helmet, but loose enough to not restrict breathing or talking.

Look out for ‘MIPS’ (Multi Directional Impact Protection System) technology on helmets; it’s an extra layer of protection that allows the helmet to slide relative to the head on an angled impact.

In Mould Helmets

An In Mould helmet is extremely lightweight, boasting a thick layer of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene Foam), with a thin layer of paint or plastic applied to form an outer skin. The EPS offers impact protection by dissipating impact forces over a larger surface area.

Hard Shell Helmets

Hard Shell helmets offer a tough outer shell which forms a protective skin, as well as a thin layer of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene Foam) inside. The hard shell protects the EPS lining from minor deformations in impacts.
