Don't let anyone fool you--wearing helmets is cool, and with the thoroughly ventilated Sweet Protection Igniter II MIPS Helmet, it'll be cool in more ways than one. Designed with high-intensity backcountry and freeride skiing in mind, this lightweight helmet has enough protection and performance to shred everything from high altitude powder lines to freshly groomed blue-square rippers. As long as saving weight and staying cool are important to you you'll love rocking this helmet. It's got front-to-back vents allowing airflow and preventing overheating when you really work up a sweat on deep powder runs, and an ultralight yet highly impact-resistant ABS thermoplastic shell. For effective protection, this helmet is outfitted with MIPS technology, which protects you during angled impacts more effectively than a standard helmet by allowing the MIPS layer to slide on impact and reduce rotational force on the brain. It's also got an Impact Shield liner that distributes impact force from the inside of the helmet over larger areas, to reduce and absorb shock in the front and back where protection is most needed. Once you're done gushing over the technical protection, you can jam out in waist deep snow with the Audio Ready system, and stay comfortable with the updated interior that makes adjustment quick and easy.
