Safety may be first, but style is a close second.
Everybody in the outdoor industry talks about their fancy, life-changing technology, but there are few companies in the ski/snowboard world that epitomize style like Bern. It has single-handedly changed the way we think about snow helmets by incorporating classic skate style into everything it makes. Take the Women's Brighton EPS Thin Shell Helmet, for example. It's Bern style with an added removable liner for a helmet that will take you through the entire winter in comfort.
The Brighton starts with Bern's Thin ABS hard shell and then adds EPS, a lightweight, one-time-use foam that evenly distributes force and gives its life to save yours in the event of a high-impact crash. Bern's Signature Shape allows the Lenox to be up to 35% lower profile than standard snow helmets, and the ergonomic fit means it fits around your head instead of perching on top of it. You won't ever be mistaken for an old-timey deep sea diver in the Brighton.
The Brighton isn't just about style, though. Several large vents allow air to flow through the helmets to keep you from burning up. A micro-adjust ratchet at the back lets you dial in the perfect fit on the fly. All told, the Brighton weighs just 15.5 ounces and fits like a glove, so you won't be thinking about your helmet while you shred. Except, of course, when an admiring rider tosses you a compliment. And, unlike other helmets, you can take the liner out when it warms up for spring-ski comfort.
