Alpina Ski and Snowboard Helmets
Getting ready to hit the ski slopes soon? It is a good idea to make sure that all your skiing and snowboarding gear is in good shape before you ascend the mountain. Ski and snowboard helmets are a vital piece of safety equipment, so if your helmet has seen better days, it may be time to upgrade to a new model. Alpina makes a wide selection of ski and snowboard helmets as well as other forms of snow gear to suit any need or personal style preference.Helmet Design
Alpina packs a lot of useful technology into each helmet it produces and puts on the market. Whether the helmet is for men, women or even one of the many Alpina unisex ski and snowboard helmets, the main design technologies all centre on comfort, ergonomics and safety. Understanding more about these technologies helps users find a helmet that meets, and even exceeds, their expectations.Comfort
Alpina uses a variety of technologies to make ski and snowboard helmets as comfortable as possible. The Highvent visor of Alpina snow goggles is a special shield that moulds to the helmet in a way that provides target air flow where it is needed the most. Removable earpads detach in seconds to provide a more comfortable fit, while the automatic self-tinting Varioflex technology ensures the best vision possible for any weather conditions. The neck warmer feature that shields the neck from draughts and the special Fogstop technology keeps the interior portion of the lens free of fog for better visibility.Ergonomics
Skiers and snowboarders are more comfortable when they have gear that is designed with ergonomics in mind. Alpina technologies that aid in helmet ergonomics include the addition of a helmet Y-clip that users can use adjust the helmet with the utmost precision, while the 3D-Fit and Ergomatic technologies add another layer of ergonomic comfort to the overall design, including the strap buckles. Users also enjoy the Run System Ergo Snow technology that makes head adjustments more flexible with the central rotating capabilities of the control knob.Safety
Safety technologies are the most important feature of any ski or snowboarding helmet, which is why Alpina helmets include a wide range of safety features. The Monocoque is a special polyamide frame that is built into the interior portion of the helmet to add an extra layer of protective rigidity to the construction. Helmets also include Edge Protect, which lends an extra safety feature to protect against damage as well as safeguards the user during side impacts. These are just a few of the technologies that make Alpina ski and snowboard helmets safe, comfortable and ergonomic.
