If You Don’t Have The Items On This List, You’re Missing Out!
When it comes to snowmobiling, there’s more to a helmet than just looks. There are a number of important things to think about and one is cold weather vision.
Most modern helmets have internal venting systems that help keep the rider’s face shield free of condensation. “Help” is the key word here because when temperatures drop way low, few of them actually solve the problem completely.
You’ll have to make an important decision on how you’re going to get rid of the warm air you’re exhaling or whether the ideal situation for you is to wear goggles with an open-style helmet.
If you wear eyeglasses, it’s even more important to manage the fogging problem. When sizing, be sure to make allowances for extra headgear like glasses, a balaclava or a No-Fog mask.
When you’re wearing extra layers, usually one size larger is advisable for the best fit for a snowmobile helmet.
Head protection is another issue and since there are minimum standards for helmet construction you can be reasonably assured most helmets will stand up to normal impacts and abrasion.
We recommend nothing less than a helmet with a current DOT or Snell testing laboratory certification and you can verify it by checking for a Snell tag inside or the DOT sticker on the outside.
