Hel­mets and gog­gles that will keep you rad­i­cal


ON A SOGGY DAY at Soli­tude Moun­tain Re­sort, Utah, we as­sem­bled an elite group of skiers will­ing to sac­ri­fice their reti­nas and dig­nity to de­ter­mine the best hel­mets and gog­gles of the year at our first an­nual Headspace event.

The skiers that com­prised the Pow­der Or­der of Sar­to­rial Splen­dor and Ex­cel­lence, or POSSE, donned garbage bags over their jack­ets, cinched up their fanny packs tight, and en­dured sleet­ing rain, wind, and oc­cas­sion­ally snow in or­der to as­cer­tain the prod­ucts that de­liver safety, dura­bil­ity, ease of use, com­fort, and per­for­mance in all con­di­tions—in­clud­ing après on the pa­tio when the sun fi­nally popped.

What they found was an im­pres­sive ar­ray of tech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing cus­tom-fit­ting hel­mets and im­proved lens-change sys­tems, but that per­sonal style and fit were still of ut­most im­por­tance. —Sierra Davis
