If Your Ski or Snowboard Helmet Doesn't Fit, It Doesn't Protect

A proper fitting helmet is the most important piece of protective gear you can own. With our Pro-Formance Advantage Fit System, we will make sure we get the right helmet on your head. Regardless of your level of skiing or snowboarding, head protection should come first.

Measuring Your Head

Source For Sports ski professionals will measure your head, and select a helmet that’s right for you. The helmet should be snug with no movement. The chin strap and the occipital dial will be adjusted to create a custom fit for your specific head shape. A helmet is too big if it can move back and forth. Once the best size is determined, we will ensure any necessary strap adjustments are made to ensure the most comfortable and snug fit.

The Perfect Helmet and Goggle Combo

Goggles need to integrate with the helmet and should be selected based on your style of skiing or snowboarding, for best depth perception, glare reduction and crisp vision. There are several lens styles for day or night activity, as well as lens that have HD, anti-glare and scratch resistant features. It's crucial that there are no gaps between your helmet and goggles, as this would allow for cold air to enter which can result in frostbite. These two pieces should work as a proper unit to ensure the ultimate in vision, performance, safety, and comfort.
