It's up to you how much money you spend on the exterior of your helmet to show off your style, but never skimp on the quality of the helmet only to save a few dollars.
You shouldn't use someone else's sizing to establish yours because the fit of a ski and snowboard helmet depends on your own head size and shape. Choosing a ski and snowboard helmet size can be as simple as trying on a few different helmets at the ski shop until you find one that fits well. Make sure to get a helmet that is the proper size for your head right now rather than one that gives you room to grow into, as oversized helmets are dangerous. To identify your size and get the right helmet fit when purchasing a helmet from a ski shop online, you'll need a more precise measurement. All our ski and snow helmets online at Auski come with size charts to help you find the exact helmet for you. We also have an easy return and exchange policy at Auski – all online purchased items to be returned for refund or exchange and must be shipped back to Auski within 30 days of the original purchase. It's simple to determine your ski helmet size by wrapping a measuring tape around the widest section of your head, right above the ears and eyebrows, and using that measurement to guide your helmet selection. Any snow helmet brand you choose will include a sizing chart you may use to compare your measurements to.
After learning how to size a helmet, you must also learn how to adjust your helmet correctly. Your helmet should be comfortable, but it should fit snugly for safety reasons. There shouldn't be a space between the top of your snow goggles and the helmet when it is properly adjusted to fit your head size. These three essential adjustment characteristics are present in the majority of ski and snowboard helmets.
Depending on the head size and shape, a snowboard helmet should snug. To verify the fit of your ski helmet, try doing a shake test by swiftly tilting your head from side to side. It is too loose if the helmet sways back and forth on your head. If your snow helmet still moves when you shake your head after adjusting it, consider a smaller size. Shrinking the helmet's sizing mechanism, adding earpads, and tightening the strap can only go so far.
The features to look for in a ski helmet depend on both personal preferences and safety. Once you've discovered a helmet with adequate safety characteristics, such as those mentioned above, you have a few aesthetically pleasing helmet features to take into account before making your ultimate helmet choice. Pay attention to these details to customise your helmet.
Brand considerations are also important while selecting a snow helmet. Research the various manufacturers because the greatest winter sport brands have a reputation that speaks for themselves. Here are three of the best manufacturers of ski and snowboard helmets to get you started.
