Find Your Perfect Ski or Snowboard Helmet

Feb 22, 2024 | Helmets

Protecting your head during extreme sports is essential – that’s why so many athletes choose to wear helmets. From baseball to football and certainly skiing and snowboarding, get the most out of your activities by wearing a helmet. Even though the snow appears to be fluffy and inviting, there is always the risk of ice, rocks, trees and branches, and other hazards. Whether you’ve been hitting the slopes since you were 5 or you’re just starting your journey at 45, everyone should get protected with the right helmet.

Juniors: Choosing the Right Helmet

GIRO Launch Jr. Helmet
Your little ones are likely to take a tumble while they’re on the slopes, so fitting them with a helmet that fits properly is essential. The GIRO Launch Jr. Helmet is a lightweight helmet with durable in-mold construction. At Benson Ski & Sport, we offer two different youth sizes to ensure a perfect fit.

GIRO Launch CP Jr. Helmet
If you’re looking for a helmet and goggle combination pack, we recommend the GIRO Launch CP Jr Helmet. Coming in both extra small and small, they both have a lightweight in-mold construction, making them ultra-comfortable for your child to wear all day. The Launch CP Jr helmet comes with Giro’s In Form Fit System, which allows you to adjust the fit with a turn of the dial. This package comes in an array of patterns and colors for a unique look on the mountain.

When in Doubt, Protect Your Noggin
Keeping your head protected while skiing or snowboarding is essential, whether you’re on the bunny hill or coasting the black diamonds. Head injuries can be incredibly serious and even fatal. Skiing and snowboarding often take place in more remote areas, which can make it hard to get medical attention quickly in the event of a fall or head injury. To give yourself the best experience on the mountain, always wear your helmet when in action. Looking to get set up with the right gear before your next run? Stop by Benson Ski & Sport.
