Top 5 Snowboard Helmets 2019

13 February 2019

The sole job of a snowboard helmet is to protect your head but if you are going to be wearing it all day it's pretty important that it's comfortable. This season's iteration of helmets combine the latest in safety technology, ergonomic design and weight savings for the best of both worlds.

Here are five of our favourite helmets for 2019.

Anon Highwire Snowsports Helmet


  • Venting: Passive
  • Sizing System: Standard
  • Weight: 545g
  • Construction: Hard Shell

This understated looking helmet is perfect for lapping the park in but equally at home across the rest of the mountain.

Its low profile design comes with venting to keep your goggles steam free, an auto-adjust system for that perfect fit and a cosy fleece lining for warmth.

Protecting your head is Anon's Endura-Shell which utilises an injection-moulded ABS Shell for long-lasting durability and ding-resistant strength.

Oakley MOD3 Snowsports Helmet

Oakley Mod 3

  • Venting: Active
  • Sizing System: Adjustable
  • Weight: 460g
  • Construction: In-Mould

The Mod 3 makes use of an in-mould construction that delivers excellent protection with weight savings and increased comfort.

On the front, there is a modular brim system that eliminates the gap between the top of your goggles and the helmet, regardless of goggle brand. And in the back, a BOA 270 system allows for a custom fit while the no pressure ear cups ensure the helmet remains comfortable for long periods of use.

Bern Macon Snowsports Helmet

Bern Macon

      • Venting: Passive
      • Sizing System: Adjustable
      • Weight: 435g
      • Construction: Hard Shell
      • All/Multi-Season certified

If you don't like the bulk of helmets but want the safety benefits of wearing one than the Bern Macon might be for you.

It uses a thin ABS shell and EPS foam to create a protective yet low-profile and lightweight design that is certified for snow, bike and skate use.

Sweet Protection Igniter II MIPS Snowsports Helmet

Sweet Protection

      • Venting: Active + Passive
      • Sizing System: Adjustable
      • Weight: 530g
      • Construction: Hardshell
      • Multi-directional Impact Protection System

This helmet is aimed at freeride snowboarders but performs well across a variety of terrain with great protection, lots of ventilation and a lightweight outer shell.

An ABS Superlight outer shell works in tandem with an EPS liner to absorb shock and deflect impacts while the MIPS system reduces rotational forces from angled crashes.

Inside the helmet, you'll find Sweet Protections' 3D liner that makes it incredibly comfortable to wear and on the lower back there is a turn-dial fit system for precision tuning and an even better fit.

Giro Ledge MIPS Snowsports Helmet

Giro Ledge

      • Venting: Passive
      • Sizing System: Adjustable
      • Weight: 495g
      • Construction: Hard Shell
      • Multi-directional Impact Protection System

The minimalist skate-inspired design of the Ledge craftily hides the safety and fit tech Giro are renowned for.

Easy to reach but hidden from sight is the Auto Loc 2 Fit System. This adjusts the inner circumference of the helmet or if you prefer to run a beanie underneath you can remove it. In addition to this, vertical tuning allows you to adjust the angle of the helmet so that it sits around rather than on top of your head.

It also comes with MIPS technology, strategically placed ventilation and a tough hard-shell construction.
