Skateboard/Skiing helmet?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Posting here because boarders seem to be more hip to helmets than skiers. And they skateboard a whole lot more.

Are skate board helmets acceptable for skiing/boarding...?

My 3 yr old has a ski helmet but is just about ready for a new bike/skateboard helmet. If it can be used for all three, I may spend a bit more. I want a uncovered ear, but something that goes to his coller. Something that LOOKS like a Protec Skate helmet, but it cannot be a PROTEC...they are not rated. Has to be a skate and bike rated helmet.

Price range 20-45 bucks.

Why not Pro-Tec? They are rated for bike use and have several models that are for Snow, Skate, and Bike. Multi use. The Ace and the B2 I believe cover all three sports. Just sayin'...

Ok, I see where you are getting that. Weird, same model, but I guess they make one for each sport. I thought they had a couple of universal models. Wendy helmets definitely makes a multi use helmet. Not sure for what sports it's rated for. I think Bern may have a couple models that do this too. Not sure about the look for you.

Ski Helmet!

FWIW, there are a few io is "skiers" that also still use skateboards

I'd use a ski helmet for biking or boarding without much worry, but not a bike/board helmet for skiing. Plastics react differently in different temeratures. They get more brittle in cold weather so a helmet made for boking or skating is tested in warmer conditions, so I suspect it could crack or shatter easier in cold weather A helmet made for cold weather use would probably just be more flexible in warmer temps, still not optimal, but the lesser of the two evils

Thanks all....

The Bern helmets not only look cool, they seem to be rated for all. Wendy are nice as well, I saw them on other websites but never clicked....thinking they were "woman's helments" First thing on the website? A marine....they make lots of helmets.

I'm no great expert but my nephew has a Bern BN-00145 suitable for larger heads (of which his is!)


I believe that is a multi-sport helmet.
