Touring ski helmets - optimal head protection for enthusiastic touring skiers.
Ski helmets have been standard equipment on the slopes for a long time. But also on ski tours, wearing a touring helmet has become an indispensable part of the touring equipment. A helmet protects you from life-threatening injuries in the event of falls and accidents. In order to offer all enthusiastic ski tourers the best possible protection, you will find a large selection of different touring ski helmets in the XSPO Ski Online Shop, which considerably reduce the risk of head injury even off-piste.
Ski touring helmets are practical, lightweight and protect against injuries
Compared to traditional ski helmets, touring ski helmets are optimally designed for touring in terms of weight, practicality and features. The helmets protect the touring skier's head from injuries related to falls and accidents. Especially for inexperienced ski tourers, rocks and other obstacles in low-snow terrain pose an increased risk of injury during the tour. Our XSPO Ski Online Shop offers ski touring helmets that guarantee you the best protection for unforgettable touring adventures. In our range you can choose between half-shell models as well as ultra-light and touring helmets. Simply use our filter function to find exactly the right product and start your next ski tour perfectly equipped.
When skiing and also on tour, wearing a helmet not only protects you from injuries, but also keeps your ears warm. However, in order to reduce weight and provide the best possible ventilation, some ski touring helmets do without ear flaps and inner lining altogether. With some airy models, a cap should therefore be worn under the touring helmet in extreme cold. Due to their low weight and an integrated ventilation system, the wearer is offered maximum comfort during the tour. Differences to traditional ski helmets are therefore mainly due to the reduced weight, whereby a ski touring helmet generally protects the head less extensively in comparison due to the weight-optimised design. However, there are some models on the market that comply with EN12492, UIAA 106, the DIN EN 1077 skin standard and others.
Touring helmets can be carried in or on the backpack during the ascent. This requires that the helmet is not only lightweight, but also has a small volume so that the ski touring helmet can be stowed optimally. A helmet should therefore be an integral part of your ski touring equipment, but whether you decide to do without it and only use it on occasion is something that every ski tourer must decide for themselves based on Driving skills, skiing style, snow conditions, terrain, surface and their own willingness to take risks.
