It was created for demanding hardcore riders and skiers with its tough durable construction and MIPS layering feature. Twenty-one vents are included in this excellent ski helmet to provide a customized airflow to keep you comfortable and your goggles free from fog. It pairs well with many styles and brands of goggles to give you just the right fit for a great air-tight seal without any gaps. There is a clip on the back to secure the goggles and removable ear pads to keep you warm. They are not needed in milder weather or calmer climates, so they can be taken out according to your tastes. This incredible helmet features a 360-degree system of fitting that is snug but not tight. It will not move around on your head even as you move about quickly during sports and activities. Added weather and sun protection are provided for the user with the low sleek profile brim.
