Why wear a helmet to ski or snowboard?
Helmets propel safety on the slopes. Wearing a helmet reduces the severity of head injuries by 40%. For kids, whose inexperience makes them more susceptible to crashing, it's been proven that helmets for children less than 15 years of age prevent and/or reduce head injuries by 50%. Wearing a helmet just makes sense, and it's catching on.
Not only does a helmet boost your safety, but it's a technologically advanced and comfortable ski accessory. Helmets like the Smith Holt grant you the following additional attributes:
- Excellent sound transference
- Beneficial ventilation
- Top-notch goggle fit and compatibility
- An anti-fog goggle resting place, and
- Audio compatibility - built-in speakers let you listen to your iPod on the slopes!
So next time you head out on the mountain, bring your helmet. And make it an audio helmet! Just remember that the use of helmets should never encourage a false sense of security among those who wear them. A helmet is an important addition to the other mountain safety guidelines you practice.
