SPECIAL FEATURE OF THE VISOR HELMET

Visor helmets are very comfortable and practical to use. However, we recommend them to skiers who ski at moderate speed. They are less effective against the wind than ski goggles, which perfectly mould to your nose and face. If you ski very fast, air can get in and it can be unpleasant.

TIGHTENING WHEEL

The adjustment dial plays a key role in ensuring that your helmet does not come off. This system enables easy and precise adjustment at any time using the easily-accessible dial that you can even use with skiing gloves. It gives you comfort of use and maximum safety. Turn the dial to the right to tighten and to the left to loosen.

ABS CONSTRUCTION

This type of structure incorporates an outer shell, made of ABS, injection moulded to withstand powerful impacts. It combines durability with a significant capacity to withstand bumps and knocks. The internal EPOS skullcap absorbs impact and collision at the time of impact. We recommend changing your ski helmet at least every 5 years unless it has sustained a significant impact in the meantime.

Standard EN 1077

Standard EN 1077 is a European standard that applies to helmets used for cranial protection during downhill skiing and snowboarding. This Standard features tests to check the helmet’s shock-absorbing capacity and resistance to penetration by a sharp object. There are two different categories:
- Class A: Protects the top and back of the head as well as the ears and the side of the head
.- Class B: Protects the top and back of the head, but does not cover the ears.

WHAT SIZE?

* Measure your head circumference in centimetres (around the middle of the forehead and just above the ears).
* Then choose the size that covers this measurement.
Example: if the circumference of your head is 56cm, try a 55-59cm size helmet.

FITTING

Take plenty of time to try it on properly. It shouldn't bother you in any way. If it does, try another model.

HELMET ADJUSTMENTS

During use, the ski helmet must be properly fitted and adjusted:
* It is essential to choose the right size.
* The head circumference must be adjusted using the thumb wheel.
* The chinstrap must be properly adjusted.
It's a bit like the seat belt in a car: if it is too loose, it will not perform its function and you won't be as well protected.

Safety

Avoid wearing a thick hat under your helmet as this will move your helmet away from your head and you will be less well protected.
Opt instead for a very thin beanie or balaclava that does not affect your safety. A helmet has good insulating properties. There is often no point in adding anything else. Also, avoid adding a camera to your helmet as this can affect safety. The standard does not take into account any elements added to the helmet.

COMPATIBILITY WITH PRESCRIPTION GLASSES

Everyone, including those who wear glasses, should be able to enjoy skiing. Wedze offers a helmet with a visor, more practical to use than "over glasses (OTG)" skiing goggles. However, some models of glasses are incompatible on account of their size. We recommend visiting your local Decathlon store to try the helmet on with your glasses.

Easy care

Removable comfort foam machine-washable at 30°C.
