Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Helmet Recommendations for teenagers?!

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Have managed to persuade my little bruv ( hes taller than me!!) aged 13 that he has to wear a helmet on our forthcoming trip to Arinsal. Ive enquired and we can hire helmets in resort, but I wonder about the standard of them? how well are they checked etc, so bear in mind hes still growing ( does your head get bigger after 13?hmm) can anyone recommend a reasonably priced helmet?

Cheers

Any ski helmet they are hiring out should meet the relevent standards - however, just like feet, head shapes differ from person to person, so what fits someone's head might not fit someone else's, even if they are the same nominal size.

Head sizes don't very dramatically. I look after the helmet stock for our club, and the 80% of juniors take either a Small or an Extra-Small, whilst 80% of adults take a Small (although we do have one who takes an XXXL!!).

RobW, Cheers, I wonder about hairline cracks in the shell etc, how well are they checked out. Have found a good deal on helmets via the natives sight and as hes coming to BSM in April i think i'll buy him one.

I forked out for Cebe helmets for the both of us in the end, very helpful ( and extremely gorgeous) French guy in Carters took ages with us. So I may look like a bit of a muppet, but If its Nade vs a tree, hopefully i'll win!

There's no substitute for trying the helmets on one by one. Although, as RobW suggests, most kids can fit into any one of a small number of helmets, heads aren't all the same shape. If your brother's buying his own helmet, he'll want to put a high priority on fit. Last week, my son tried more than 20 helmets before he was really happy with one. Of course, being a kid, there was the little matter of style to be considered, too...

Thanks guys, managed to find one he was happy with, his main complaint was " I cant hear properly" so once we got over that he was happy enough! My only requisite was one that doesnt make me look like a total plonker, and remarkably, it doesnt! hurrah!!

kuwait_ian, I think she is referring to B2's, incorporating, Upper Torsal, Dual Vas Balancing and Hi-Vis assets, which she intends to use to her advantage!
