cbrenthus Got the vantage, it was the only one that's comfortable. I'll see how it goes with other sports and get another helmet if needed

Neni, neni, neni!!!?? It's Awesome that you are such an "action" chick! But dear,.. get a dedicated rock climbing helmet! Somebody knocks some loose scrabble from above and you are gonna be glad you did! (...some helmets are sport specific for a reason!)

Ring your bell with one bad spill and you need to replace it. These helmets are not multi-impact...also you should replace it every 2-3 yrs regardless if it has been banged up. The foam degrades over time etc. compromising the protection. So, not a 10 season deal unfortunately...

Sure fresh fluffy snow is softer then pavement but once it packs down and turns to ice or hard pack then it's definitely not so soft. I think all action sport helmets have a minimum criteria for absorbing impact forces and pretty transferable between the sports. The liners are generally what make the helmets specific to the different sports. Someone will correct me on the criteria for helmets but yea pavement isn't necessarily harder then snow.
