Ski & Snowboard Helmet Sizing Guidline
Ski, Snowboard & Skate Helmets are measured in centimetres. The size quoted is the MAXIMUM head size each helmet will fit. To help you find out what size helmet you will need, we have given you a guide on how to measure your head.
Measure the circumference of your head using a soft tape measure, running the tape over two of your fingers (to ensure it is not too tight a fit) and around your head at the widest point, from forehead, across the temples and around the back.
Print a MEASURING TAPE NB 1. The page will load slowly because it is a pdf. NB 2. Just before you confirm the 'print' instruction, please make sure the 'page scaling' on your printer settings is set to 'None'
There are filter's down the left hand side of the Ski Helmets page to help you narrow down your search too, whether you want audio, a particular colour or a particular brand we have tonnes in stock!
Skiing and snowboarding are both physically demanding sports, especially if you are a beginner. Keeping properly hydrated is vitallly important. A small sip of water every time you go back up on a chairlift is highly recommended. You’ll know when you are dehydrated even before you feel thirsty because you will feel weak, tired and irritable and you may even develop a headache. For sure, not drinking enough will impact on your performance and enjoyment, it could even force you to end the day a few hours early. At worst, it could put you in hospital! We recommend using a Hydration Backpack. This way you can stash a few other essential bits and pices such as sun block cream, a snowboard tool or ski lock, a Porta-ski or even a first aid kit. Alternatively, you could use just insert a hydration bladder into a snowboard backpack that you already own. Either way, please drink plenty of water - whiskey, gin, tea or coffee are no good.
