Four-season protection that breathes and flows your tunes while you ride.

The Bern Watts Hard Hat Audio w/ Knit Liner provides warmth in the winter, ventilated style in the summer, and protection and tunes year round. A burly outer shell of ABS and multiple-impact Brock foam puts a new spin on head protection with a low profile look and lightweight feel. Top and back vents pull air from front to back through the breathable foam, and Bern's signature sun visor shields your eyes when you head out to slay concrete or lap the terrain park.

  • Soft, open-cell Brock foam allows air to circulate within its structure creating a cooler environment for your head
  • Brock foam is designed to provide protection against multiple, lower-force impacts rather than a single catastrophic crash
  • Hard Hat models do not meet action sports head protection certification standards due to the use of Brock soft foam

Big Dave's Ski Helmet

The Bern Watts Ski Helmet with knit liner was great! I purchased it on the recommendation of a more avid and experienced Skier. It was the warmest headgear I have ever had. I used it the first time at Sugar Bush Resort in Vermont the weekend of Feb. 11th-13th. The whole weekend served up single digit temps and my head and ears never got cold at all. Also, I took a nasty head bangin' fall where I saw stars. The first thing that came to my mind when I got my head cleared was, man, this helmet just paid for itself on that one. I do not understand why anyone would ski without a helmet. Thanks to Bern and Backcountry for making my trip safer and warmer. Not to mention how durn cool I looked for a 50+ Kid who still likes going over the edge. I highly recommend this helmet. I bought my son one too!

In Bern I Trust

I was having a difficult time finding a helmet that fit my head comfortably and that could accommodate my Electric EG2 goggles. The Bern Watts matched my needs perfectly.

The audio is decent and the comes with a cord that has an inline volume control which makes adjusting the volume a snap even with my gloves on.

Sometimes in life... you get what you pay for. This was one of those times.

How well does this helmet work with goggles?...

How well does this helmet work with goggles? I just bought a pair of Oakley Crowbars. Will the visor get in the way/

Responded on

Awesome. The visor keeps snow off the top of the goggle mitigating fogging and moisture on the lenses.

What are the action sports standards? What sort of impact is this helmet rated for?

Best Answer Responded on

As the description notes, Hard Hats do not meet action sports head protection standards, which consider the protection needed for protection in catastrophic collisions. Helmets lined with the harder (and far more common) EPS foam do. EPS foams work by slowing the impact of your head against the outer shell as well as outside objects; in the process, the foam cells are crushed, and the helmet will need to be replaced. Less-dense Brock foam, on the other hand, helps protect the head against lower force impacts; its cushioning action may help prevent concussions in lower-grade impacts (for example, when you catch and edge and whack your head on hard-packed snow). One helmet can take many such ‘lower-grade’ impacts. So this boils down to, how do you feel you’re going to hurt yourself? Are you more likely to hit the snow a lot, or are you planning on running into a tree?
