Try the helmet with your goggles for proper fit too. If the helmet doesn't fit it won't protect your head well or be uncomfortable. If your goggles don't fit you'll get moisture in your goggles and possibly steam up.

Before I rocked the helmet I used a pair of the skullcandy headphones that are built for beanies/helmets that wrap around your ear. These were really good but no mute button.
Cool thanks man. I'm thinking I might just pick up a Pro-tec helmet and invest in some nicer speakers to put in them.

RickyBobby I'm 59 1/2 years old, with many many more years left for powder and trees.

I've been wearing a helmet for several years now and can think of two times that I was very glad to be wearing one. Both times, I simply washed out my heelside edge and went down hard on icy snow on my back with a hard hit to the snow with the back of my head. Helmet really made a difference in these cases. Once in Utah and once in Colorado.

Skinny Bam Take your goggles to the shop and try them on with the helmet. If you plan on wearing a beanie or anything underneath bring that too, but goggle fit is def most important(besides fitting your head obv)

If your goggles are too big they will either push the helmet towards the top of your head which makes the helmet unsafe not to mention uncomfortable. Or it will put a lot of pressure on your nose which sucks ass too.


I got the Red Hi-Fi, partly because I have anon goggs that are designed to fit it but also cuz it was comfy and light
