Briko Indian Ski Helmet (Matt Black, 52cm)

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #14 in Ski Helmets


Pros: Affordible - Comfortible - Technologically Driven Racing Design

Cons: Hard to find dealers who carry it in the US market

Overall a really great helmet.  I'm biased at this point because this is my second Briko. I already had a Briko Strato. (when I retired the Strato, I bought a Briko Phoenix to replace it).  I also bought the Briko Rookie (Jamaican Ski Team Graphics) for my 12 year old grand daughter who is a serious skier. 


I have the 2009/2010 in Gloss Black with a white racing strip down the center. It also came in a gloss Royal Blue with the same white racing stripe. The 2010/2011 came in several new colors, but  I've only seen three variations in the US  -  a solid Matte Black, a solid Matte Silver and a solid Matte Red


Sizing and Fit - I wear a Large (60) and it's a true fit . My comparison is the other helmets I've owned over the years - Briko, Ovo (Titan), Maplus (Maori), Alpina and Leedom. The Indian is a better fit and very comfortable. Interior padding is very well configured, and padding around ears is on Velcro, so it can be removed on non race days when the air is warmer.


Comfort Level - High - Can get warm on a warm day, but I have had no problems with being cold on cold days, or even really, really cold days.  There is no gimicky ventilation adjustment system, just a very efficient design that maximizes airflow


Safety - All the requisite certifications for Europe and the USA - CSI, FISI, ASTM and EN. Chin strap is woven synthetic with a metal micro adjustable buckle surrounded by plastic - makes for really precise adjustment and has a one finger quick release.


Graphics - KIller! 


Where - I get my helmets from Race Stock Sports in Waterbury, Vermont - owner PJ Dewey at 802-578-3585 - PJ was the Lange Boot Tech for Picabo Street, and other Lange sponsored athletes on the US Ski team in the 90's and early 2000's. They don't come any better!
