The annual SIA Snow Show is the largest trade event in the snow sports industry. Every January, companies from all over the world come to Denver, Colorado to showcase new styles, technologies, and innovations that continue to drive the snow sports industry.
Last week, we had the opportunity to meet with a handful of companies in Denver and also test out gear on the slopes at Copper Mountain. These five products caught our eye.
For your dome: Pret Helmets
Pret Helmets came on the scene five years ago with an obvious but revolutionary idea: make helmets shaped like people’s heads.
The helmets are built with a Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS), which absorbs impacts from all angles. They’re also fitted with RECCO technology, which allows ski patrollers to find the helmet after an avalanche.
Also… they look cool. Pret Helmets come in a variety of colors, and they’re designed to totally eliminate the gaper goggle gap. The helmets don’t sell online, but you can find a store locator and other info on the Pret website.
