Packed with bells, whistles, and a heaping helping of confidence.
Sure, the skate-inspired Rant Helmet looks like it would rather party in the park all day, but this helmet is happy to protect your gray matter anywhere on the mountain. Luxury-car-like upgrades include the snap-back fit system, a silky smooth interior liner, and highly effective venting that keeps your goggles fog-free. All of a sudden your itchy wool winter hat looks a little sad, right?
- Hard-Shell construction bonds impact-reducing EPS foam to the inside of an ABS plastic shell to create a protection system that's light but incredibly safe
- Passive-Channel Ventilation uses three large vents in the front, top vents, and back vents in order to direct cool air through the front and pull hot air out the back
- Snap-Strap Fit System allows you to quickly and easily adjust the fit of your helmet liner in the same way you adjust the back strap of a baseball cap
- Full-Wrap Liner System covers your head from the top of your neck, over your ears, and all the way to your forehead
- Full-Wrap liner's breathable fabric moves chilling, sweaty moisture from the surface of your head to the surface of the liner where the moisture can quickly evaporate so your head stays dry and warm

Pretty good helmet!

Less is more is the theme of this helmet. It has minimal adjustments and that makes it very convenient. Just like a baseball cap, the liner has a plastic adjuster in the back. Since this is to protect your head it has two rows of adjusters and they are thicker and tougher than a baseball cap.
The helmet looks good. I got it to match my Marmot bibs and the color is spot on! At first I thought the visor was going to annoy me when I popped the goggles up, but it does not. It's a purely aesthetic element, but I like it.
I wanted an easy way to drop in headphones and this helmet accommodates. I was unhappy with the fact that there is no way to secure the headphones once they are in, so I had to bust out the sewing kit and sew the ear flaps shut with the headphones inside (just a few threads to keep them from shifting). A couple of pieces of Velcro is a much more elegant solution and would keep the liner washable, but I was in a hurry.
The price on it is quite good right now, so for the money it’s a great value.
