Goggle & Helmet Systems 2017

Helmets and goggles from the same brand match up better to fight gaper gap and wind channeling. They can also make you safer.

Bern Rollins Helmet and Jackson Goggle

Bern Rollins Helmet & Jackson Goggle

One of the more comfortable helmets we’ve tried, the Rollins features a unique knit liner paired with a low profile and well-ventilated shell. We found it paired best with Bern’s medium-fit Jackson Goggle. $140 (Rollins), $90 (Jackson); bernunlimited.com

POC Auric Cut Helmet & Fovea Goggle

Freeskiers who crash a lot need multi-impact protection helmets like the Auric Cut, which features an EPP liner instead of a one-and-done EPS liner. Pair it seamlessly with the Fovea goggle, which now has a POC specific lens tint by Zeiss. $180 (Auric Cut), $150 (Fovea); pocsports.com

K2 Diversion Helmet & Source Z Goggle

Beyond a snug fit between the low profile helmet and Zeiss-equipped goggles, this K2 combo offers superior airflow both in the goggle, for fog protection, and at the head, to exhaust heat. We kept reaching for it in spring conditions. $160 (Diversion), $145 (Source Z); k2skis.com

Marker Phoenix Otis Carbon Helmet & 16:10+ Otis Goggle

The carbon shell helmet features the smart placement of a multi-impact polymer in high-risk areas, and that same polymer is employed in the oversized goggle to protect the face. $279 (Phoenix), $179 (16:10+); markerusa.com

From the Early Winter 2016 issue.
