Red Trace Helmet

Posted

Pros: sturdy, looks good

Cons: limited ventilation, bad goggle clip

I bought this helmet on sale at the Burton Factory Store in Burlington VT, so IĀ got it a good bit cheaper than full retail. I was able to use it for the rest of the season last year, and I'm definitely a fan. It has the hard plastic shell, which leaves it more scuff and ding resistant than those helmets that are just foam (like the Giro G9 or 10). This makes it a little heavier, but its not heavy by any means. The helmet is really well padded on the inside, which gives me a snug but comfortable fit. The helmet looks good, and fits perfectly with my goggles (I wear Anons, so its made to fit). The downsides to this helmet: It can get a little warm as the spring temps roll in, since it doesn't have all that much ventilation. Also, the goggle strap clip on the back is poorly engineered, it can let go of the strap if the goggles are up on the helmet, and it can fall off if you're not careful.

Description:

Red used a versatile, multi-sport design to let you use the Trace Helmet for snowboarding in the winter and skateboarding in the summer. When the snow melts and you turn your attention to the concrete, remove the Trace Helmet's goggle clip and ear pads and take your rail skills to the skate park. Full-time ventilation lets air flow for quick cooling in any season. Red's ABS shell takes on ice and concrete without flinching, so you can get up and come back for more.
