Bern Muse Hard Hat Women's Ski and Snowboard Helmet

The Bern Muse Hard Hat ski and snowboard helmet for women is a great accessory for any girl serious about playing safe and looking good. This helmet is worn by female pros, Ashley Batters and Megh Pugh, with the patented visor and variety of colors, not to mention that this helmet has a removable winter liner, making this helmet perfect for any season.

The EPS version of the Bern Muse gives you the same great styling but offers the fully certified protection that you may demand from your dirt lid. The EPS version of the Muse is certified to ASTM and CE standards. The Muse EPS also comes with a sliding fit adjustment located at the rear of the helmet that allows you to fine tune your helmet size. Use the adjustable chin straps to dial in a perfect fit and hit the slopes in one of the most stylish helmets around.

Important to understand about Bern Helmets EPS / HardHat / Zip-Mold:
It is important to understand the different helmet options Bern offers before choosing to buy. Bern offers 3 different interiors to their helmets (HardHat, EPS, Zip-Mold). The HardHat Brock Foam and Expanded Polystyrene are offered in the Baker, Watts and Macon ski and snowboard helmets. The Zip-Mold is offered only in the G2 and Brentwood ski and snowboard helmets. The outer shell will be the same, but the interior padding and protective qualities are different. Most Bern helmets are offered in EPS or HardHat. Again, the outer shell will look the same and as you look at the picture of the outer shell you will not be able to tell a difference. Below explains the difference in protective qualities, weight and fit of the different interior offered by Bern Unlimited.

What is the Difference between the HardHat and EPS?
On many of Bern's models they use the same outer shell but different interiors. This makes it somewhat confusing to everyone looking to buy a Bern helmet. So for example, when you are looking for a Bern Muse helmet, it will either be a HardHat or an EPS. Here is the difference in the two. (Note the Muse EPS only comes in S-L. The Muse HardHat comes in S-L)

HardHat: Available in S-XXXL
The Bern HardHat uses an ABS hard shell and an interior foam called Brock Foam. Brock Foam is a soft, very comfortable foam that is rated as a multiple impact foam. When an impact occurs on a Brock pad, each bead moves the adjacent two beads laterally which diffuses the impact. Friction between the beads turns much of the force into kinetic energy. Multiply this by the thousands of beads in each pad and you have the essence of why Brock absorbs impact better than standard foam pads. It is made up of a polypropylene bead that offers a firm protective layer and has excellent moisture and heat wicking properties.
Brock foam is not certified ASTM or CE for snow or Bike. The helmet is still a great helmet, but you do need to be aware of this fact.

This is what a Bern Muse HardHat helmet looks like:



EPS:Available in S-XL
The Bern EPS uses the same ABS hard shell but has a more traditional EPS Foam interior. The EPS version is certified for Bike, Snow and Skate. Because of the Bern Shell design, this helmet is still very comfortable. The EPS version like all other EPS Helmets is rated as a single impact helmet and should be replaced after any major head impacts.

The interior of the Bern Muse EPS helmet looks like:

EPS and HardHat Bottom Line:
Both versions of Bern helmets will perform and look great. But if you want to make sure that your helmet has been certified to US and world impact standards then the EPS version is the option you should choose. We were also surprised at the comfort level of the EPS found in the Muse. Typically an EPS helmet will not be as comfortable as other other interior version such as the Brock Foam HardHat. This is testament to Bern's helmet designs. It is also important to understand the the EPS is a single impact rated helmet and will need to be replaced after any major impact. The other downside to the EPS is that it is only available in S-XL. If you need a larger size you will need to move into the HardHat version of the Baker.
