Choosing Snowboarding Helmets Tips

Choosing a Snowboard Helmet

Very few serious snowboard injuries involve head trauma. It is usually just the high profile ones. Helmets give everyone a sense of security.
  • The beginner snowboarder will benefit from a snowboard helmet because it will protect the back of their head when catching an edge.
  • More advanced riders wear a snowboard helmet to protect against things like trees or impact when landing wrong off a jump.

When trying on a snowboard helmet, make sure it fits very snug and try on as many different models as you can. Some helmets offer more insulation than others, and you may end up wearing a thin cap under the helmet to stay warm, so if this is the case be sure to wear this when you are trying snowboard helmets on. We also suggest looking at snowboard helmets with removable earflaps and padding because they can help you regulate your temperature on cold or hot days.

Don't Take the Risk

Would you ride a bicycle in traffic or forty miles an hour down a hill without a bicycle helmet? Of course not. The statistics have proven time and again that bicycle helmets are as essential and necessary as seatbelts or airbags. Bicycle helmets are a law for riders under twelve years old.
Because snowboarding and skiing are sports done in the snow and away from other vehicle traffic, the statistics are less staggering, but should be taken as seriously. Only 15-24% of skiers and snowboarders wear helmets on the slopes, yet there are still unnecessary deaths each year.
Don't let yourself or your child fall victim to the invincibility mindset some dangerous skiers and riders have. Get a snowboard helmet.

Warm and Weathered

Not only are snowboard helmets the smartest snowboarding accessory you will buy for safety sake, they are also the best looking accessory. Snowboard helmets keep ears warm and heads ventilated, chins protected by guards, and come in low-profile styles and fun prints and colors.
