Hardnutz in-mould ski helmets are made by fusing an outer PC (Polycarbonate)
shell and a shock-absorbing EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) foam liner together in a
single moulding process. In-mould helmets are therefore more lightweight and
can offer a greater choice of ventilation systems but are generally more
expensive due to the process involved in construction. Due to the smaller size
of the vents, there is no need to cover them although the front two vents can
be closed to slow down airflow. All of our in-mould helmets come finished with
a smart rubber coating to add to that luxury feel.

Choosing your ski helmet size
To choose what size helmet to order, find yourself a fabric tape measure or
something similar to measure your bonce with. Taking the tape, measure around
your head just above your eyebrows and ears. Getting someone to help is
probably best for a more accurate reading. Once you have the size check out the
Getting the right fit is essential. Too tight and you may get a headache, or
worse, decide to take the helmet off and not wear it! Too loose and the helmet
could slipoff on impact, reducing the protection or may be even causing injury.
Once you have chosen the right size helmet, loosen the dial-fit adjuster and
put the helmet on, making sure the front edge of the helmet is just above your
eyebrows and not half way up your forehead! Next, tighten the adjuster until a
comfortable but secure fit is found. To test this, lean forwards with the chin
strap still undone and see if the helmet falls off. If it does, it's too loose.
Simply tighten the dial until the helmet stays put. Next do up the chinstrap
and adjust to the correct length, this being loose enough to get two fingers in
between the strap and the neck. Lastlyput your hand on top of the helmet and
rock it back and forth. The helmet should not slide across your head and your
eyebrows should move up and down with the movement of the helmet. Ultimately
the helmet should fit not only snuggly and comfortably but it should be secure
Safety & Testing
Both in-mould and ABS injection snow helmets have to pass the same CE-EN1077
European safety tests. The EPS liners in both types are designed to dissipate
the energy of a collision either by compacting or breaking. Sometimes this
damage is invisible to the naked eye so general advice is that if your helmet
takes a proper smack, you should replace it. Due to the nature of the
construction of the two types of helmet, the ABS injection style helmet can be
more durable and hard wearing. All of our helmets have been tested and passed
by global testing company SGS.
