Why do I need a helmet, anyway?
Concussions aren’t fun. Damage from a concussion can have lifelong impact and not for the better. But no snowboarder in their right mind is going to stay off the mountain. Thanks to a great helmet from AllSportProtection.com, you won’t have to. We carry the widest selection of CPSC certified snowboard helmets to keep your brain contained.
Some snowboarders believe that helmets are only necessary under subpar conditions, that unless the snow is hard-packed and icy, there really isn’t a need for a helmet. This just isn’t the case. Besides the fact that any snowboard helmet will be warmer than many of the beanies and knit caps available on the market, a good snowboard helmet will have plenty of ventilation that is easily adjusted for a custom fit. Another common misconception is that helmets are too heavy, causing headaches and other inconveniences on the mountain. Most snowboard helmets weigh in at just under a pound and have adjustable fit systems, creating the perfect, lightweight fit for your ride. Your snowboard helmet should integrate well with your goggles, incorporating a strap or canal in which your goggle strap will stay put in addition to removing a cap between the top of the goggle and bottom of the helmet. Audio integration is also available on many snowboard helmets available on AllSportProtection.com, allowing snowboarders to listen to their favorite tunes and even make and receive calls from a compatible smartphone. Each reason for incorporating a snowboard helmet into your ride comes in addition to the fact that any snowboarder could not possibly be nearly as safe without one.
All Sport Protection has a few favorite snowboard helmets, one of which is the POC Receptor Backcounty MIPS helmet. Of course, POC is one of many top brands found on AllSportProtection.com. The Receptor Backcountry packs an extra punch in the form of MIPS technology, which adds an extra, low-friction layer between the user’s head and the rest of the interior of the helmet. This layer prevents head injuries by allowing the user’s head to remain suspended inside the helmet while the outer shell of the helmet sustains more of the impact. Read more about MIPS technology on the Receptor Backcountry’s page.
We carry only the top snowboard helmet brands including POC, Demon, Giro, Smith and TripleEight.
