HOW TO CHOOSE A SKI HELMET

How to choose your ski helmet?

Indispensable, even mandatory for children during ski lessons, choosing a good ski helmet is essential when getting kitted out. Size, ventilation, with or without a visor ... follow the guide when choosing your ski helmet.

Ventilation

To aerate and wick away moisture:

You should choose your ski helmet based on 4 criteria: size, ventilation, lightness and visor

 

Size 

To get your helmet size, use a tape measure to measure your head size, passing well above the ears, eyebrows at the front and the widest part of the skull at the back (on the occiput). The objective is to measure the circumference of the skull at its largest point.

Tip: If you don't have a tape measure, just take a piece of tape or a long lace, place around your head and then measure with a ruler.

Lightness

Helmets are increasingly lightweight so you can forget about them once on your head.
