When it comes to purchasing ski helmets your looking for one thing and one thing only and thats head and brain protection. We have carefully narrowed down and selected helmets with features such as MIPS Brain Protection System & Dual Active Venting system aswell as ensuring comfort at its best.
Compatible with the Recco Reflectors, Snowsafe and rescue professionals highly recommend mounting a reflector to your helmet for extra safety margins, this will allow mountain rescue professionals to locate your signal in the case of an avalanche accident. With unlimted life span and no activation its a must for only £24.99 right?
Have you ever hired a cheap ski helmet where the goggles do not mount correctly or fling off the top of the helmet, annoying we know. its important that you have proper Ski Goggles that will easily mount to your helmet and stay in place.
PC IN-MOLD CONSTRUCTION
+ Lighter, more comfortable and aesthetic
+ A polycarbonate shell fused with an impact absorbent foam liner
+ Durable and strong
with an EPS liner
ACTIVE VENTING SYSTEM
One unique easy to use slider on the top of the helmet.
DUAL ACTIVE VENTING SYSTEM
Two sliders in the front and top area of the helmet for unparal- leled ventilation.
PASSIVE VENTING SYSTEM
Built in system regulating the airflow through the helmet.
PASSIVE GOGGLE VENTING SYSTEM
Intake vents placed on the front of the helmet, just above the goggle, remove stagnant air that causes fogging
MRAS FIT SYSTEMS
can be adjusted horizontally and vertically providing unparalleled comfort.
JRAS FIT SYSTEMS
can be adjusted vertically allowing you to keep your help secure whilst riding.
Experts at making hemlets that keep you safe.

The MIPS BPS System is designed to add protection against rotational motion transferred to the brain.
Rotational motion affects the brain and increase the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. When implemented in a helmet, the MIPS BPS System can reduce rotational motion by redirecting energies and forces otherwise transferred to the brain.
The core of the MIPS BPS System is a low friction layer that allows the head to move 10-15 mm relative the helmet in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain. The MIPS BPS System makes your helmet safer and adds protection.
Rotational motion from an angled impact can cause strain in the brain that can lead to tearing in the brain tissue. The illustration is based on data gathered using sensors inside the crash test dummy heads.
The dummy head, wearing a helmet, was subjected to an angled impact in a test rig at the MIPS lab in Sweden.
The illustration shows the strain in the brain from an angled impact when the dummy head is wearing the same type of helmet – with and without MIPS BPS System.
Statistics show that many brain injuries occur due to angled impacts to the head. However, in standard helmet tests the helmet is dropped vertically onto a flat surface, and this does not create an angled impact.
These results are helpful for measuring precise vertical impacts, but inferior for measuring a more realistic scenario of an angled impact.
The MIPS test rig is developed for testing angled impacts to simulate a fall during a crash.
See illustration below for more information on MIPS testing
Depending on what type of helmet is tested, the helmet is dropped from 2,2–3,1 meters on to a 45-degree impact angle covered with grinding paper. Three different types of impact points are tested, and all helmets are tested in all sizes.
Data is gathered using nine accelerometers inside a Hybrid III crash test dummy head and analyzed using a computer model known as the Finite Element Model.
The same helmet model is compared with and without the MIPS system to make sure that the helmet passes the strain reduction criteria MIPS have on all approved helmets.
More than 20.000 tests have been conducted at the global test center in Stockholm, Sweden. In addition to that, a number of third-party tests have also been made supporting MIPS safety claims, for example::
MIPS equipped and received top ratings for safety.
When MIPS first entered the market, the MIPS layer was located in between the shell and liner, although this was more effective than standard helmets, this construct prevented the use of MIPS technology in In-Mould construction helmets, the most common type of helmet construction method within action sports.
Today, the MIPS layer is located between the liner and the users head, giving helmet manufacturers an increasable easy and effective way to increase their helmets angled impact protection.
Hans von Holst is a Swedish neurosurgeon and professor emeritus who has dedicated his professional life to studying head injuries. His research recognized that protection against brain injuries was inadequate.
In 1996 he began to study the relationship between brain injuries and helmet construction.
Together with Peter Halldin, a researcher at the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology, they developed ground-breaking technology in the way helmets were designed and manufactured that would prove to significantly improve brain protection.
Now, after more than 20 years of research and engineering, MIPS works with over 78 helmet brands from all over the world, and over 9,2 million MIPS BPS Systems have been produced.
Before you head to the mountains its important to mount a Recco Reflector to the back of your helmet, this will offer extra safety margins when skiing through backcountry terrain, for more information on how the recco works please see below :
