MTN Lab Helmet

An ode to those with an affinity for Type II fun, Salomon's MTN Lab Helmet is an ultralight lid that's equally at home slaying pow in the Rockies as it is on gnarly ascents in the Alps. Thanks to the hybrid in-mold design, the MTN Lab has a sleek, low-profile look, with EPS 4D technology that helps absorb oblique and vertical impact.

The MTN Lab is equipped with a breathable, moisture-wicking merino wool lining that stays naturally odor-free even while you're sweating up a storm on an exposed glacier. Active ventilation comes in handy to keep your head cool when you're ripping turns through spring corn, and the custom dial fit system lends itself to instant adjustment in case you need to throw an extra layer on when the mercury drops.

  • Lightweight, stylish helmet for all aspects of skiing, snowboarding
  • Hybrid in-mold construction handles oblique and vertical impacts
  • Odor resistant merino wool lining wicks moisture to boost comfort
  • When the temperatures rise active ventilation helps cool you down
  • Custom dial fit provides a secure and reliable fit every run

The best helmet for hot heads

True to size
Size Bought
M

I have a 59cm head, and the medium fits me, but only just. It fits my oval head well, but the brim of the helmet is flatter than some helmets. It blends very nicely with my Poc Fovea goggles, but Smith I/O mag XL has a sharper curve than the helmet brim and didn't mesh very well. I initially bought this helmet because I was overheating in my old helmet in almost all conditions. The MTN Lab vents very well. So well that for most of the season I tape up the first few vents (which I found got packed with snow easily) and almost always wear a beanie underneath. Even with these extra steps, I still find the fixed vents preferable to adjustable ones, since it keeps the weight and complexity down. In warm conditions the helmet is an absolute joy, and I've never had even the slightest amount of goggle fog with this helmet. I was initially worried about the durability of the helmet, since almost from the first day I used it, it got several dings and scratches from tight east-coast branches and trees. That being said, the helmet never started to degrade over its two seasons of use hard use, and the marks piled up and gave it character. The retention system is much lighter and more minimal than most ski helmets, but it works well, is easily adjustable and holds its position. The two padding options (one with ear cover and one without) are very minimal but surprisingly comfortable. They are also not warm by any means, and the ear covers didn't even cover all of my ear, but these problems were easily fixed with a beanie underneath. I also really like the helmet bag that comes with the helmet. It fits snugly around the helmet and has clips, and can be secured easily to most packs. I usually put my helmet, goggles and a beanie in the bag, and I've never had any issue with stuff falling out, even though the bag doesn't fully close (it fits on the helmet sort of like a shower cap). The headlamp retainers surprisingly worked very well for my headlamp. They took a little getting used to when taking my goggles on or off, but I never found it annoying. Overall, I found this to be a fantastic resort-only helmet, and I suspect that it would be even better if used in its proper backcountry environment. I got two solid seasons out of it before I had a hard crash and cracked the back of it. The foam cracked, the retention system broke, but I only walked away with a slight headache.

It's not safe

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I had this helmet for almost a year now and the back strap that tightens it on to your head litterally popped off after being hit in the head once. If it was hit again I would have lost the helmet. Definitely not what I would want in the Backcountry.

Great Lightweight Helmet

The MTN Helmet is the perfect helmet to use anytime. From Climbing couloirs to skiing the resort this is the only helmet I need. Super comfortable and light weight, I couldn’t ask for more from a helmet. The removable liner is also great for spring tours to cut down on bulk, and fits a visored had underneath easily.
