i personally only wear a helmet if im doing a competition, when im riding on my own or filming i dont tend to wear one. im more worried about breaking bones/hurting my knees then i am hitting my head really. i also think it looks a little better while filming, like the one guy said it makes it look like its easy.

I know that tj schneider wears a helmet in his video parts. Jed Anderson wears sort of a helmet. In his video part from shoot the moon he has some sort of hard shell on his head, not sure if it would really protect his head if he crashed.

Helmets take the pressure from the google strap of your head,that is all.

People tend to obsess over the helmet when in reality, more serious injuries and deaths are the result of trauma to internal organs from a bad crash. Broken rib puncturing the lung or heart being a major one.
That's why people should wear an efficient dorsal protection. I have one personally.

I'm not afraid of hurting my knees or my arms because it sounds like minor injuries, whereas head injuries, broken ribs or spinal injuries may kill you or let you paralyzed.

I love snowboarding but it isn't worth dying for this, especially when the technology brings you the means to protect you efficiently.

If you see a mistake in my English, please let me know in your reply, or give me notice by MP. It'd be nice!

your knees are, in my opinion, the most important thing you use while snowboarding. you blow out your knee and youre not going to be riding for awhile. plus its gonna make a lot of other things in your daily life a bit more difficult.

Thats one of the dumbest things I think Ive read on this forum.. and thats saying alot...You can hurt yourself 100x different ways riding..Although 100% protection is virtually impossible and would get in the way of riding and what not..Its not that difficult to ride with a helmet vs without one..and yea a helmet wont protect against broken ribs or punctured lungs..but looking cool def wont help you not get a concussion.

Sorry but I agree , it's nice not having a strap squeezing your melon all day long...love wearing my helmet(with full music+phone integration) no idea why more people don't wear them.

None of us actually know if these pros wear protection underneath their outerwear though. Some backpacks offer built-in spinal protection. Hell, a regular backpack with stuff in it helps too.

As for T.Rice, notice the only time he wears a helmet in AOF is when he has the GoPro on.
