Snowboarding is all about a sense of freedom, and the Salomon Brigade Audio Snowboard Helmet gives you the freedom to choose. Some days you might need the visor; other days, it might get in the way. That's why this helmet gives you the option to remove it, and later replace it. But that's not where the freedom of choice ends; you also get the choice of what tunes to rock out to with the audio package.
Key Features of The Salomon Brigade Audio Snowboard Helmet:
I got this helmet a few seasons ago and it has always gotten the job done for me. First things first, it always protects my skull. Whether or not I needed it, it is always there as a safety precaution. Another positive about this helmet is that it is comfortable. The helmet is well padded, and overall is very comfortable on the hill. Personally, I prefer to take all of the inserts out and wear a beanie underneath, only because I don't like earpieces on a helmet. If you choose to use the earpieces, there is a built in audio in the helmet. Although I completely disagree with using headphones and audio on the hill, it's there if you really want to use it. In addition, this helmet has worked well with each goggle I have used with it. From oakleys, to anons, to smith, each have fit well with the helmet as it has gotten the job done for me. Also, this helmet is relatively lightweight. Not as lightweight as the Bern EPS helmets, but still, very lightweight. Lastly, this helmet does work well with the go pro mounts, as I have seen other people have difficulties with mounting on their helmets. Overall, this is a great buy, and if you can find one (I find one lying around every now and then) it is a great option to protect your skull
