The terrain park can dish out some heavy-handed blows, so be ready with the Giro Ledge Helmet. The hard shell construction is built to withstand multiple impacts, and its on-the-fly vertical tuning system allows you to quickly adjust the helmet for a snug and secure fit. Super Cool vents live up to their name with the ability to quickly pull cool air through the helmet as you ride, forcing hot and stale air out. Remove the ear pads and the Auto Loc 2 fit system when you want to wear the Ledge with just a beanie underneath. The Ledge helmet is designed to seamlessly integrate with all Giro goggles, while its Stack vents will help to keep goggles free of fog.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I originally ordered a medium from BC, but then went to REI and found a small. There isn't a huge difference. I'd say if you're on the border size up for comfort. I tried on a sandbox helmet at a ski rental shop and there was a huge difference between the small and large, like can put on versus cannot. As for the product, it's great and I love the ear cover.
Great for the money, can't complain!

Comfortable helmet with full coverage. Breaths well. Only been with temps in the mid to high 30s - was warm without a hat, but vented well—didn't overheat. Don't have the audio system, though headphones worked fine and were comfortable - not being shoved in my ear. Fits my Smith goggles nice without gap.
Giro Ledge Helmet
My teen wants a ski helmet that he can plug his IPod into....when it says "Audio Compatible," does this mean he can do that? Are there speakers in the helmet?
Is this helmet compatible with the Anon M3 goggle's?
Yes, this helmet will be compatible with the Anon M3's.
