Snowboard helmets. What you need to know.

So how are they made? What do I look for? What do others say?

Their R.E.D. Hi-Fi snowboard helmets are one of the lightest snowboarding helmets on Earth, thanks to an ultra-light shell and stealth design. Go big or go home with the hunter green plaid fabric covered Hi-Fi. R.E.D.’s Hi-Fi helmet is compatible with R.E.D.’s in helmet speaker ear-pad system so that you can attack the mountain to your own beat.

The Hi-Fi Quick Clip mechanical ear-pad interface mounts the ear-pad in the center of the EPS liner to maximize stability and minimize the width of the helmet. It ensures that the ear-pads stay locked where they should be, keeping you warm and protected. Converting from winter to spring easily without changing your helmet fit is literally a snap.

This is what one satisfied user had to say.

“I never liked helmets in my 13 years of snowboarding but my wife begged me to get one before our trip to Jackson Hole in Feb 2006. I agreed but I wanted very light weight and something different looking than the usual black/red/white hard plastic shell. I found the Red Hi Fi super lightweight helmet with cool Hunter Green Plaid outer cover (it's actually made of fabric!). After looking all over, [...]I got it the day before we left for the trip! I was originally going to only wear it when we hiked to the expert bowls but it was so lightweight that I wore it everywhere. I used it in the pipe & park and I have to admit it gave me some extra confidence hitting the 50 ft table top in the park. Check out the green goggles that match! Maybe my tastes are weird, but I really like the plaid! “

Red Trace Helmet

This is an inexpensive, very light-weight helmet. Battle-proof for skate and snow. The R.E.D. Trace helmet features removable ear-pads for quick changes from snow to skate and ample venting for year-round comfort. It’s injected ABS shell can handle anything you can throw at it (literally). Make R.E.D. Trace snowboard helmets your year round protection solution. About $35.00

One user talked about it this way.

“I bought the helmet for my son who is picky about his gear. He used it out west snowboarding for the whole week and loved it. I tried it on myself and it seems comfortable and very reasonably priced by comparison to others. Even though it is advertised as a convertible, all we wanted it for is snowboarding. You would never know that it isn't just a winter snowboard/ski helmet.” Giro G 10 Signature is a blend of low profile style and technical savvy that reflects to-days wide-open, freestyle-inspired riding. Designed for riders as driven as Andy Finch, and Kristy Leskinen. It is priced in the $119.00 range.

One user stated “This is an excellent product; I've worn a Boeri since 1999, but this Giro G10 is lighter and more secure. I like the removable ear flaps and the ease of using a cell phone.” Giro G10 MX Freestyle Helmet - Men's

The Men's G10 MX Freestyle Snowboard Helmets by Giro is the choice of Sean Petit. As riders continue to push boundaries all over the mountain, they want one helmet that rules everything from the park to secret back country stashes. The optional audio configuration is an added bonus. About $129.00

Style, safety and comfort, you can't ask for more!!!

Brian from Lathrop, Ca had this to say about his purchase of the G10 MX

“So, what kind of parent am I that I make sure my 7 year old alpine racer has a helmet on and I don't wear one myself? And, I'm a patroller at that! I started seeing more and more brain buckets on the mountain and with my daughter scolding me for not wearing one, I figured it was time. This was a great choice. Very comfortable, well padded and adjustable venting and removable ear pads for the really warm weather. There is no excuse for not owning this lifesaver. I find myself more aggressive in the trees too! This model was purchased without the optional audio system. If I may be so bold to do a PSA.
