legallyillegal boa helmets are pointless when there are already dial-equipped helmets that do the job just fine

No way BOA pants, no more poking holes into your belt when your in between sizes or getting too fat.

BurtonAvenger Helmets have had this for years. It's just a way of adjusting it to fit when on your head better than shoving more foam pieces or less in there it has nothing to do with the chin strap.

PanHandler i agree. Theyre trying to over complicate it in order to have a marketing tool.

although it might be a good thing for maybe a kids helmet where theyre growing fast. Then you wouldnt have to buy them a new helmet half way through the season.

JoeR I don't want a helmet that has to be tightened and then loosened every time it's donned or doffed. The helmet is just about the easiest-to-use piece of snowboarding gear I have; I'd like to keep it that way.

PanHandler i hope theyre talking about a boa system to make the helmet fit snug on your head. Kinda like the knob on a hardhat or a bike helmet.

If theyre talking about a boa strap then i think its a dumb idea.

BOA helmets?

Saw this item in a story about the SIA show:
Smith Helmets plus Boa
Boa Technology offers maximum micro-adjustability with the spin of a reel. All Smith helmets over $120 now come with Boa Tech for cinching down your brain bucket.
Does this seem like overkill to anyone else? I've never found the conventional neck strap inadequate. How perfectly does a helmet need to fit?
