The Protec Vigilante Snow Helmet with Recco Avalanche System delivers a low-profile helmet modeled after a skateboard helmet. This top rated and well reviewed helmet is a versatile snow helmet that includes several practical features and the BOA fit system for a custom fit.

What is the Recco Avalanche system: <

A RECCO locator chip built into each RECCO equipped helmet works with advanced radar technology to allow for the quick location of an avalanche victim or lost snowboarder by the large percentage of ski patrol and mountain rescue teams that utilize the RECCO system.

What are the options for the Protec Classic Skate: Classic Skate vs. The Classic Skate:
Pro-tec decided to make things a little difficult to distinguish with their Classic Skate line of helmets. They actually offer two different types of Helmet protection with the same Classic Skate shell. So from the outside you will not be able to tell a difference from the two helmets without looking inside them. The first "Classic Skate" uses a 2 Stage or EVA foam interior. The second "The Classic Skate" uses a standard EPS/SXP foam interior. Below explains the differences.

Protec Classic Skate (2 Stage of EVA):
The "Classic Skate" helmet is the most popular of the two different helmet versions. With the 2 Stage foam the helmet is extremely lightweight. It is very comfortable to wear and is great in warm conditions. The problem with the 2 Stage is that it does not offer enough protection to be certified. The helmet is classed as a multiple impact helmet so you will not have to replace it as frequently. The helmet will certainly offer protection in case of a fall and is a very popular helmet in skating sports but it is important to understand the different levels of protection offered but the Protec Classic line.

The Protec Classic Skate (EPS/SXP Foam):
The Classic Skate with an EPS foam gives you the same style as the legendary Classic Skate but also offers the certified protection of an EPS foam core. The Classic Skate, with an EPS or SXP as Protec calls it, is certified CE, ASTM and CSPC. So this version of the helmet is great for every sport from Biking to Skating. Pro-tec has come out with their SXP technology which has been rated a multiple impact helmet. This is an extra benefit to the SXP/EPS version that allows you to avoid replacing your helmet after a head impact. (after any major impact it is important examine your helmet and replace if there are any signs of major damage).
