Helmets might not be the most exciting piece of equipment to buy but they are the most essential for keeping you safe on the mountain. If you’re looking for your first helmet or a cheaper alternative this is the page for you. At this lower price point, you can still find great brands such as Oakley, Anon and Salomon for both men, women, and kids. Each helmet has a different design and construction however they all comply with the safety standards, so whichever one you choose you can ride with confidence. Some of our favourite features to look out for are adjustable vents, BOA fit systems and removable liners which are easy to wash. It’s recommended that you replace your helmet after a significant impact as the helmet can be damaged internally without it being externally visible.
