Take it to the limit.
You like to push the limits. That's why Pret created the Cynic X Helmet. Designed for those that go the extra mile and expect their gear to do the same, the Cynic X offers cutting edge safety and comfort. Built with MIPS technology, this helmet protects your head from the rotational forces that are most common (and most damaging). The RCS dial fit system cinches down to create a snug, customized fit, while the glove-friendly SNAP Fidlock magnetic buckle system keeps everything where it needs to be for safety and security.
Pret's VTT1 passive ventilation system uses a combination of front intake vents and rear exhaust vents to channel fresh air through the helmet for comfortable temperature regulation, whether you're hiking for turns or putting down springtime park laps. The warm and moisture-wicking wool blend liner is treated with Static XT anti-odor technology to keep you smelling as fresh as possible after a long day of riding. Removable Covert ear covers are audio ready, so you can amp things up with the perfect soundtrack. As a finishing touch, Pret equipped the Cynic X with a Recco reflector, which may help Recco-equipped ski patrols locate you in the event of an in-bounds avalanche.

Confidence in the trees!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have never owned a ski helmet before and this was my second attempt at finding something that works well for me. So far I have really enjoyed it. I typically find that I am a medium in most cycling helmets and climbing helmets, but the large in this helmet works perfectly for me. I wear a thin helmet liner or buff under and with the excellent twist to fit system I am able to really fine tune the fit. With the helmet I have used both my Zeal Optics Forecast and Native TenMile and they both fit really well and have virtually no space or gap in coverage. If you are looking for a classic styled lightweight helmet this is the one for you!
Classic and Comfortable
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This helmet will be replacing an older Bern helmet I've had for a few years. This helmet is so easy to adjust and really dial in the fit! I really enjoy how light and hat-like it feels. Haven't worn it skiing yet but it seems as though it should be very warm. Stay tuned for an apres ski review of goggle fit and actual warmth. 4.5 golden stars
