Progressing in any Snow Sports activity usually means a few tumbles and falls, having the proper safety equipment takes an element of risk out of it. Giro have been a market leader in helmets for years, they invest in research so their products are continually growing and developing, so they are only presenting the best.
Giro has released the Combyn helmet, a ‘Soft Shell’ helmet for skiers and boarders that emphasizes durability and protection across a wide range of impact types. The Combyn is purpose-built to withstand the imminent impacts of jibbing, jumping, hiking, and travelling.
“We designed the new Combyn helmet for park and pipe riding where repeated impacts are the price of progression,” said Giro Sr. Vice President Greg Shapleigh. “With our unrivalled research and development capabilities, Giro is uniquely positioned to match snow sports’ rapid progression with equally advanced protection while maintaining the style that shows our core mission as a sport design company. Giro introduced lightweight, in-mold helmets to the snow category back in 1999; now we are pushing helmet design forward again.”
Giro have created a helmet liner made with Vinyl Nitrile foam, unlike traditional liners made from expanded polystyrene or expanded polypropylene, the Vinyl foam allows both high and low energy impacts across a wide range of temperatures. The material is soft and flexible meaning a comfortable fit for the wearer.
Because the Combyn helmet protects from a range of impacts and temperatures it is perfect for any type of riding from Backcountry to the park. The Simple Livers have tested out the Giro Combyn helmet for us, check out what they thought:
