Sassicaia Look...i found they make an optional sound pads. Best to order it all at once so you dont have to pay the shipping twice

Sassicaia So after 3 full days on the slopes i wanted to give a little more feedback on the helmet, specifically the venting.

Fit is great. Its the closest feeling to not wearing a helmet I have experience...even ore so then my bern watts carbon which is strange because the bern weighs less.

The venting works good. I was out on a warm day where snow turned to rain, and I actually really appreciated the fact that there are open vents on top that would all any water, or snow in. The venting sucks the air in with no moisture.

With that said I probably wouldnt use this helmet in the summer mountain biking. It is a winter helmet (as advertised). I could picture on a hot day wanting as many vents as possible, but in the snow/rain i prefer this design.

scotty100 Outstanding! Make sure you pour a good hef in there as befits the purpose I'm with you on aesthetics and function...good design should incorporate both.

Wine is a hobby of mine also, ditto craft beer. If you are ever down in Tahoe boarding give me a shout and we'll combine all 3!!

I'm intrigued sass, I love reading your posts, you obviously enjoy a certain income bracket- your name says it all...I too enjoy the odd super Tuscan for what it's worth- if you don't mind me asking, what do you do during the week?
You nailed the reason equipment looks the way it does in this sport, and unfortunately marketing has taken it to an extreme to the point its cool to look like a tard. Luckily there are some options for better designed product both esthetically and functionally that can be had. I dont want to equate it to age, but rather maturity. Even when I was 19 I hated the look of the snowboard brand. To each their own thou. I have a platinum M16 as a lamp in my office which seems to offend most people but I think looks great

People on this site can say what they want about my choices for gear, but in my book it has to look as good as it functions unless there is no other choice ( id take function before looks if it came down to it). Same idea when buying a car, bike, home, couch or new suit.

To answer your question about what I do during the week honestly I board a lot, but have found a way to work from the hill, literally. I do conference calls while going down the slopes, and phone interviews while on the lift. In the summer its the same but golf. I used to own a publishing company, now I own a veterinary business among other things.

Anyone who enjoys a good super tuscan has good taste in my book. Collecting wine is my other main hobby...next to drinking it of course.

Beer too! check out this 3L boot my GF gave me today as an early 35th birthday gift!!! Thats 6 pints in a single serving.

Ill stick with stuff that looks sweet, and performs top notch....they can have the rest.

The problem with 90% of everything snowboarding is that it looks childish. But thats just my opinion
