But it’s not just about the neat features, the construction is great too. It’s made from polycarbonate using the in-mold design which significantly reduces the weight.

From The Manufacturer

1 ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET “Safety first” is the piece of advice that cannot be overstated enough. While the thought of wearing a helmet may not appeal to some skiers or snowboarders, you should definitely still wear one, especially considering that trees are common on the slope and the ice can be as hard as tarmac on a road. 02 ASTM & CE CERTIFIED AKASO snow helmets meet the most common U.S.standard known as ASTM F2040, which covers non-motorized recreational snow sports including skiing and snowboarding.It also has the European alpineskiing and snowboarding helmets certification, CE EN1077.(Disclaimer: Although our helmets have both endorsements,they are not invincible and any protection they may provide is limited.) 03 04 05 PROTECT YOUR DOME Safety certified; Light weight and durable construction fuses the helmets outer shell to the impact-absorbing EPS liner (EPS foam is made in the USA) CLIMATE CONTROL Adjustable vent on top slides to change how much heat you let out. GOGGLES COMPATIBILITY Goggles Loop on the helmet gives you the ability to keep your goggles in place while skiing or snowboarding on the slopes 06 07 08 REMOVABLE LINERS & EAR PADS Detachable fleece liner & ear pads let you customize how much warmth you need. They can be washed easily and sweat & odor free. ADJUSTABLE DIAL An adjustable dial on the back of helmet to ensure your helmet fit as snuggly and comfortably as possible. MEASURE YOUR HEAD Take a soft measuring tape and wrap it around your head about 1 inch above your eyebrows and ears,roughly in the middle of your forehead. If you don’t have a soft tape measure, use a piece of string and wrap it around your head and then measure the string. 09 10 11 12 13 14 Ski Helmet Mag Pro OTG Ski Goggles Kids Ski Goggles Alta Ski Goggles Explore Oregon Ski Goggles Ski Gloves Size Options Small/Medium/Large One Size One Size One Size One Size Small/Medium/Large Color Available Black/White/Blue/Purple 7 Colors Available 8 Colors Available 9 Colors Available 6 Colors Available Black/Red
