Make a New Year’s resolution that really counts. Don’t just tell people you’re shedding the old 10 pounds; kick-start some serious winter adventure instead. Has the massive amount of pre-coverage for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia left you itching to hit some powder? If so, make this the year you learn to tear down the slopes in high style, the year you master giant slalom or snowboard a triple black diamond.
For your new skill you’ll need some new gear. We hate lugging a bulky helmet around, so when Carrera announced they’d be releasing a foldable snow helmet based on their sought-after folding cycling helmet, we were impressed. The Carrera helmet is perfect for any kind of recreational snow sport. It’s got full surface ventilation, removable ear pads and a removable lining that can be thrown in the wash after a long sweaty day on the slopes, and it will free up more than 20 percent additional space in your bag. What particularly distinguishes this gear is its interior flexible frame—it adapts to the shape of your head, giving you a proper fit.
While the price has yet to be announced, we’ve got our eyes on the premium carbon/leather helmet that truly blends the traditional old school look of the helmet in its infancy and the innovation, safety and comfort companies like Carrera have brought us throughout the years.
