Technical information

COMPATIBILITY

Wedze helmets and masks are designed to form an integrated whole.

ADJUSTMENT WHEEL

The adjustment wheel plays a key role in keeping your helmet secure. This system can be easily and precisely adjusted at any time using the easily accessible dial that you can even use with your skiing gloves. It also gives you comfort and maximum safety. Turn the dial to the right to tighten and to the left to loosen.

ABS STRUCTURE

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.

EN 1077 Standard

Standard EN 1077:2007 is a European standard that applies to helmets used for cranial protection during downhill skiing and snowboarding. This standard tests the ability to absorb shocks and resistance to penetration. There are 2 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’s circumference in centimetres (around the middle of the forehead and just above the ears).
* Choose the size that covers this measurement.
Example: if you have a head circumference of 56 cm, you should try a helmet in size 55-59 cm.

FITTING

Take plenty of time to try it on properly. You shouldn't feel any areas of discomfort. If you do then try another model.
Always try your helmet with your mask, because not all helmets go with all masks. A helmet is compatible with a ski mask when there is no air space between the top of the mask and the helmet.

HELMET ADJUSTMENT

During practice, 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’s too loose, it will not perform its function and you will be less protected.

SAFETY

Avoid putting a thick hat under your helmet as this will move the helmet away from your head and you won't be as 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.
