Day after my very 1st powder run...

I'm a bit of a late blooming noob when it comes to snow sports so I'll freely admit that I may not now what I'm talking about. However, this helmet was both warm and comfortable, so much so that I would forget that I had it on. That's got to count for something.


Good helmet

    This is a good helmet for my 12-year-old son. He would have liked to have removable ear flaps, though.


    The ear flaps are removable. My wife and I both have these helmets and she uses hers in the the summer while riding her Trikke.


    Good helmet, good price

      I like this helmet, good value. If it's really chilly I'll wear my buff underneat, but it's pretty well padded and insulated. It looks like it's got Velcro closing pockets in the ears if you want to put Tune Ups in it, but I haven't done that yet.


      Great Helmet

        My sons are very hard on their gear. They actually broke the front snap (plastic) when they hit the ice along with the ski goggle holders in the back. I called the service dept and they replaced it immediately. The helmet is holding together great and backcountry is good on their word and products!


        Good helmet, for a while

          I wore the Giro Encore 2 Helmet during four days of skiing this January. It fit well (sized accurately), had decent padding, good ventilation, and was comfortably warm in 20-30 degrees F with no additional headwear. I returned this item today, however, because the rear snap for goggles broke. The helmet was not abused during skiing; I believe this is just a weak component. Otherwise, a good helmet for a good price. I purchased the Giro Revolver, to take the place of the Encore 2. I am not excited for the velcro-attached padding, but am hoping the non-adjustable plastic snap on the Revolver will last.

          Is this helmet compatible with all TuneUps systems?


          Nice Helmet

            I switched to this from the Giro Fuse mostly so that I would have a nice smooth place to mount my GoPro Hero 2. It is a nice helmet and it fits well. The vents are not adjustable, but other than that it is a great helmet.

            Does this helmet have bulilt in earphones...

            Does this helmet have bulilt in earphones for playing music?

            It does not come with it standard; however, skullcandy makes an audio kit that allows you to swap the ear muffs with their headphone/earmuffs. Its costs $15 and works great. I love my helmet and the audio kit. Its an awesome helmet. that keeps my head cool and the snow out. thanks to the mesh lined vents.


            Good basic helmet

              If you dont want to spend a bunch of money on features you never use then this is a great helmet. Works for snow and skate so you dont need 2 helmets for winter/summer.
