Snowboarding is a very good way to exercise during the dreary winter months. However, like all action sports, snowboarding has an element of danger that, if not handled properly, poses a risk to more than just yourself.
Safety should be everyone's top priority when snowboarding, starting with protecting one of your most valuable assets: your head. Unfortunately, choosing the wrong helmet may actually cause headaches rather than prevent them. Do you know how to choose a snow helmet? Here I have some tips for you.
EPS foam is a commonly used material for economy and mid-range helmets that provides good protection but is a little bit heavy in weight. High-end helmet manufacturers have unique designs that provide industry-leading protection for your skull. The Level helmet has a honeycomb structure between the reinforced casings, greatly reducing the transfer of energy from the point of impact to the head.
Consider the climate of the area where you ride most often. If the weather is often sunny, you may need a helmet with a small visor to provide more protection from the sun. On the other hand, if you live in an area where it's often cloudy, consider wearing a helmet without a visor so you don't lose visibility in low-light conditions. Alternatively, if you're looking for a one-stop solution, there are all-in-one helmets and integrated goggles that cover the face.
ASTM F2040: This is the most common snow helmet certification. The U.S.-based standard covers non-motorized recreational snow sports, including skiing and snowboarding.
CE EN1077: This is the European certification for alpine skiing and snowboarding helmets. Some helmets are both ASTM and CE EN certificated, though it is also possible to be CE EN certificated but not ASTM certificated.
Important note: Helmets are valuable, but not invincible. "Although a helmet that meets this specification will help reduce the risk of some types of injuries to the head at slower speeds, the protection is limited." according to the ASTM website.
