Ski touring helmet

Croos-country ski helmets

Cross-country or mountain ski helmets, fortunately, although not mandatory use, proliferate in the snow. Does anyone imagine driving a motorcycle without this security element? And a car without carrying the seat belt?

Well, it is true that the use of these is mandatory. However, the awareness of skiers and skiers in recent years has allowed these elements of safety for snow to flow, increasingly, from accessories to essential elements.

As with most outdoor material, you will need to know in advance the demands and needs of your next challenges to make the right decision during the purchase process. That is why, in Vertic stores you will explain both with the help and with the advice of our specialists to find the right helmets that we have in our stores as well as in our online store.

What do you have to keep in mind when shopping for cross-country skiing or mountain skiing?

First of all, you must comply with the specific approval for this security element. Moreover, with the double certification - skiing and skiing - compulsory since the 2016 season. The International Federation of Mountain Skiing (ISMF) implemented this measure from the 2016-2017 season.

From the ISMF itself they indicated that "we decided to adopt this important qualification to comply with the highest level of security." The mountaineering is governed by the norm EN 12492, constructed to face possible blows against stones, ice or impacts of skiing. On the other side, the ones of skiing do it by the norm N 1077 class B Standard.

Therefore, the first thing to keep in mind at the time if done with this basic element of security is that it meets the basic approval rules that guarantee you to enjoy your activity and, at the same time, grant you the necessary protection in case of accident.

Regarding safety, it is also necessary to keep in mind that some models incorporate the Recco system to be located in case of avalanche or avalanche. Do you know what the Recco system is?

The Recco system is a radar system to locate victims in case of avalanche or avalanche. From the reflectors installed in the helmet, the Recco detectors of the rescue teams are in charge of locating possible victims through a directional radar wave causing a rebound to the detector that turns it into an acoustic signal.

Once corroborated our choice complies with the safety parameters, it is time to choose the right model depending on the size. To be optimal, it is necessary that it be ergonomic, adjustable and adjustable to the size of your head so that it neither bother nor become uncomfortable during the practice of the activity.

Although they are usually very ventilated per se, do not forget to check that the ventilation system is adjustable. In this way, you will be assured of the necessary perspiration, especially during the moment of effort in the ascent.

Another aspect to keep in mind when choosing a model or another is lightness. To do this, always choose a helmet manufactured internally with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene and polycarbonate in the housing.

Finally, before the exterior design inclines the balance to one side or the other, it evaluates two last aspects. Some models incorporate polar fleece in the interior and, others, earplugs. This is to avoid the presence of the cap. In any case, these supplements are usually removable. Some models, at the same time, are ready to add a mask incorporating adjustments on the outside for the tape.

So, if you are looking for security material to enjoy this activity, Vertic stores will find all the necessary material to enjoy ascending and descending through the mountains. Solve questions with our specialists and guide you through your advice!
