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 :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

Help with custom air Salomon Helmet

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have a Salomon custom air helmet (about 6-8 years old), where the air bladder doesn't work any longer.. Sad I couldn't find any replacement available, Salomon only sells those for 1-2 years...
Has anybody had this problem?

On the other hand, if I were to replace it, perhaps with a MIPS type now, I really like the look of the Oakley Mod 5 (as I have Oakley Airbrake goggles), or the Scott symbol plus D (seems even safer) - would love to know which ventilates better? I have always been very hot in the Salomon ones, so would prefer a new one that is less warm.. The oakley doesn't seem to have much vents on it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

My first generation Custom Air gave up the same way last season. I've replaced it with a Ranger Mips Custom Air which is a much better fit. The venting is similar but there are a couple of extra ones at the back that don't close and the lining is a thermally sensitive affair so should be cooler in spring.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I had the same issue with my Salomon custom air, I replaced it with the Oakley Mod 5 MIPS last year and find that fantastic, definitely no issues with overheating and I did find the salomon a little warm sometimes.
