K2's top-of-the-line ski helmet for rippers.
A world away from the heavy brain buckets of old, the K2 Diversion Audio
Helmet uses hybrid construction to provide lightweight protection so you can focus on your line. This top-of-the-line helmet
meets industry standards and certifications to help protect your noggin
during a sudden crash or cartwheel session. Equipped with
dual active matrix venting technology, the Diversion lets you
regulate airflow with the touch of your
finger while the goggle vents remain open to keep fogging at bay.
The baseline audio level 3 sound system brings your tunes to your ears and connectivity to your phone when you shred or chill on the lift. Its integrated headphones and on-cord mini-mic connect to your cell phone or your MP3 player for easy connection when you tackle gnarly terrain or spin yourself dizzy in the park.

Worth the price
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love this helmet. I got the L/XL and the 360 K2 dialed fit system fits to your head just perfectly. The most comfortable helmet I've worn. No goggle gap on these, they ride at a good spot on your head.
Not the lightest helmet on the market, but never a problem. When doing a lot of hiking or working, I get pretty hot in this helmet, even with the vents open.
And about the vents... I notice when they close, they don't really align completely. Some of the vent holes never completely get covered. Hasn't really been a huge problem for me, but it kind of makes it look cheaper than the price point.
The audio is great! Great sound and great setup. The cord is pretty lame. It's difficult to find the control and when you do, impossible to fiddle around with it when you have gloves on.
All in all, no regrets on this helmet!
Stand out from the herd!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I gave the lime colored helmet as a gift, as this is the feedback I got back:
First, love the color, but I for one, like to stand out. If you like to blend a bit, go with white or black. Beyond that, the Diversion Audio Helmet gives you a great fit, fully adjustable, ventilation, and a light weight feel that keeps you protected without giving you a headache. The sound quality is great for the price point, but you shouldn't expect some high end surround sound nonsense - that would be way unsafe anyway. All in all, a great buy and a total upgrade from my previous brain protector!
Comfortable, not too hot, decent audio
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My biggest fear with a helmet is that it's going to be too hot, and the diversion provides lots of options for adjusting airflow, so that's really the biggest features I was looking for--and it's not really found on a lot of other helmets.
It does not feel like the helmet is perched on your head, but rather that it has swallowed it whole--a real "bucket" feel. Adjustability is good.
The audio is surprisingly good. I'm a bit spoiled by good audio in my life and I wasn't disappointed. (It aint carnagie hall, but it will do.)
The audio wire is the dumbest design ever. Clip is tiny and useless. The button for pause/play is so small (and flush) that it is hopeless to think you will find it with gloves on.
Honestly my biggest complaint is that it's hard to tell what "more" I'm getting with this helmet over the lesser priced models. It is hard for me to believe that the venting is $30 extra, but so be it.
