Ski and snowboard helmets gain in popularity every year and for good reasons! Helmets are lightweight, warm, functional, stylish and they protect your head! A ski or snowboard helmet is something you hope you never test to see if it works but glad you have it if an accident does happen. Many people ask, "What's the difference between a ski and snowboard helmet?" The answer, nothing except personal taste in styling. Any helmet can be used for skiing or snowboarding.
How often should you replace your helmet?
Manufactures tell us you should replace your helmet every 5-7 years. Why you ask? Manufactures found with everyday use like when helmets travel in a bag, or hung on a back pack, get tossed on a table, thrown on the ground, and even put in storage, they found stress cracks. And anytime you stress are in a helmet, you need to replace it immediately because if you were to take a head blow, it wouldn't protect your head properly.
