Całkiem spoko kask

Trochę się obawiałem, że przez brak otworów wentylacyjnych na górze będzie słabo wentylowany, ale po 6 dniach jazdy w Alpach nie mam uwag. Co prawda jeździłem w warunkach między -2 i -12 stopni, więc może gdyby było cieplej, to zauważyłbym jakieś problemy. Kask ma całkiem fajny design i sposób mocowania okularów. Mały minus za pasek pod brodę, który ma tendencję do samodzielnego poluzowania się i trzeba go co jakiś czas sprawdzać. Ogólnie jestem zadowolony z zakupu.

Adjustment wheel

The adjustment wheel plays a key role in keeping your helmet secure. This system can be easily and precisely adjusted at any time using the easily accessible dial that you can even use with your ski gloves. This makes it comfortable to use and provides maximum safety. Turn the dial to the right to tighten and to the left to loosen.

Recco system

The RECCO® search and rescue system features dual technology which supports the majority of ski resort rescue teams. The RECCO® detector used by rescue teams emits a directional signal. The RECCO® reflector built into the jacket returns the signal. This generates an audible sound that guides rescue personnel directly to the person needing assistance. Before any off-piste outing, make sure you get the information you need from the professionals at the resort.

Hybrid construction

The upper part of the FR 500 ski helmet is in ABS (resistance), and the lower part in In-Mold (low weight). The ABS construction (rigid shell) is a little heavier but increases the protection against penetration (branch, stones, etc.) The In-Mold construction has an outer polycarbonate shell that is molded directly onto the EPS shell. The inner EPS liner absorbs shocks in the event of a collision. The whole thing is extremely lightweight.

En 1077 standard

Standard EN 1077 is a European standard that applies to helmets used for cranial protection during downhill skiing and snowboarding. This standard tests the ability to absorb shocks and resistance to penetration. There are 2 categories: - Class A: Protects the top and back of the head, as well as the ears and the side of the head .- Class B: Protects the top and back of the head but doesn't cover the ears.

What size?

* Measure your head’s circumference in centimeters (around the middle of the forehead and just above the ears). * Choose the size that covers this measurement. Example: If you have a head circumference of 56 cm, you should try a helmet in size 55-59 cm.


Take plenty of time to try it on properly. You shouldn't feel any areas of discomfort. If you do, then try another model. Always try your helmet with your mask, because not all helmets go with all masks. A helmet is compatible with a ski mask when there is no air space between the top of the mask and the helmet.

Helmet adjustment

During practice, the ski helmet must be properly fitted and adjusted: * It is essential to choose the right size. * The head circumference must be adjusted using the thumb wheel. * The chinstrap must be properly adjusted. It's a bit like the seat belt in a car: If it’s too loose, it will not perform its function and you will be less protected.


Avoid putting a thick hat under your helmet as this will move the helmet away from your head and you won't be as well protected. Opt instead for a very thin beanie or balaclava that does not affect your safety. A helmet has good insulating properties. There is often no point in adding anything else. Also, avoid adding a camera to your helmet as this can affect safety. The standard does not take into account any elements added to the helmet.

Ease of use

Removable and machine washable liner hat and ears at 30°C. Use only soapy water and a soft cloth to clean your helmet.
