One of the most enjoyable getaways you could ever experience is when you are atop a vast mountain slope, sliding down a gentle pile of snow with the wind rushing past you. The thrill is unforgettable and the adrenaline rush is undeniable, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't take the time to prepare yourself with protective gear from Surefoot.
Aside from the custom ski boots and orthotics that Surefoot provides, this unique ski shop also offers a wide selection of protective gear, including a number of top brand ski helmets from POC and Smith. Surefoot offers a variety of styles and colors to fit any budget, ensuring that you stay safe and comfortable while your skiing at your favorite destination.
POC is a Swedish company that originally started by selling safe, high-end helmets for ski racing. POC racing helmets allow racers to push the limits of the sport while enjoying the comfort and safety that protective gear provides. In the last few seasons POC has produced more Freeride ski helmets offering more styles and colors without compromising the safety of each helmet. For the 2011-12 season, Surefoot offers styles including POC's new Freeride design, the POC Frontal in Grey White and Black/Grey for $150. This ski helmet offers maximum protection and ventilation without decreasing the strength of the shell.
The POC Receptor also offers a chance to experience the same great safety with a couple more colors if you want to look more stylish on the slopes, for just $200. Yet, the top choices this season are simply the POC Skull X ($170) and the POC Skull Comp 2.0 ($340). Both helmet styles come with a Multi Impact EPP Core that provides protection after repetitive shocks from gates and other impacts. The Skull X is ideal for ventilation which are penetration proof for junior racers and anyone looking for lots of protection in cool, hip colors and the pink helmet is selling out fast!
Smith helmets are designed more towards the average consumer with plenty of protection in a great, easy fitting helmet. If you are looking for easy comfort and a lightweight helmet, look no further than the Smith Allure Slate Pink helmet for women. This is the lightest helmet available and your ears will be secured with comfortable, plush fleece lining for just $100. Surefoot has also carried the award winning Smith Variant Brim ($160) for a few seasons, offering great lines, colors and the perfect fit, discounted to only $112.
The great combination of style and technology is hard to beat and a feature of the helmet is the built-in easy pocket to drop in your speaker kit and listen to music while skiing. For more of a variety, the Smith Vantage ($180) helmet also offers the same great comfort and style, but comes with a smaller brim and lower profile design, available in Black/White, Black/Red and Cyan Team. With all the great POC and Smith designs for this season, the helmets will fly off the shelves this winter, so be sure to plan ahead and stay protected on the slopes with Surefoot's ski helmets.
