Safety across the seasons.
Protect your dome from all the head-smashing and skull-splitting activities you love with the Bern Watts Carbon Fiber EPS Visor Helmet. This helmet meets safety standards for snowboarding, skiing, biking, and skating, so you stay safe no matter what you're getting into. Bern made the shell out of a strong carbon fiber ABS material that remains lightweight so you don't feel like a giraffe with a weight attached to its head. The liner is comfortable, warm, and removable for warm summer days at the skate park.
The Watts also features top vents that pull cool air in and back vents that push hot air out so you stay comfortable whether you're working up a sweat on the halfpipe, at the skate park, or biking with your friends. A visor adds some style and a whole lot of comfort by keeping the sun out of your eyes, and a micro-adjustable ratchet cinches across your head for an ideal fit that you can change on the fly.

Feedback from a friend
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I wear a 7 3/8 size baseball cap and got the L/XL which actually fits me a little tight, even with the micro-adjustable fit ratchet. However, the liner and the vents up top make this helmet super comfortable. I got the red and the color isn't exactly as pictured, it's more shiny than matte, but I'm not too worried about it. If you have the extra cash to spend on this carbon fiber helmet, I would. Overall, super happy with the purchase.
So far, so good..

I've always been into Bern helmets. For me its the low profile outline and the fit suites me. Brought this helmet because I wanted something light weight and that is adjustable but didn't make me look like a teched out euro. Id say the fit is large so go smaller than larger if your on the line. Plus I have found the adjustment to loosen off a little throughout the day. The only thing I was a bit gutted about when it arrived was the colour isn't at all matte like the pictures. Its very glossy. I would have given this helmet five stars otherwise.

Rather large and the fit is poor. The Smith Vantage is a much better choice. If you could combine the style and fit of both you would be rockin. For the 1st time had a horrible experience with the live chat - Mark P. He simply was not interested in helping. I felt like I was a bother. The closer to the holiday the poorer the customer service I guess due to the volume in sales. Either way most of my Backcountry help has been great.
Need a new liner for a three season old helmet do you sell them, looking to upgrade to the wireless speaker system?
I've come across one of these helmets but without the adjustable fit ratchet on the back. Was that a different model?
Is this helmet isn't impact resistant enough for skating?
It's definitely strong enough to skate with, and the liner comes out so it won't be too hot.
Do these come with the wireless bluetooth ear pads?
No, those are sold separately!
Ouch - $$$
well they have the ear pads that velcro open to insert any earphone system you want (ie: Skullcandy, Beats, etc) if thats what you mean.
Id recommend the Outdoor Tech Chirps Wireless. I use them in this helmet and its amazing clarity and functionality.
