Bought for daughter who wears glasses so needs to keep them on to ski (she won’t do contacts). It looks good, fits well and the visor works fine. She’s skied in bright sunshine and full on snow and been happy with it.
Efficient helmet but pink version is better as not reflective layer on the visior. Visior not also stays in upper position, need to use a screwdriver on the slopes to fix it. Pink version tried is better.
Good helmet, fitted well, only issue was that the visor misted up.
I too encountered moisture issues on inside of visor. Initially, I removed the lower visor black padding, helps moisture drain out. Later, realised design needed a flange at visor down position, a flange at top so liquids could not drain inside visor. A fiddly job, but my solution: use zips ties (=cable ties in UK) to form a flange. First, draw pencil line across helmet at top pf visor in down position. Next, cut zip ties into about 30mm lengths, necessary as helmet surface is curved and straight lines on curved surfaces do not work. Commencing in centre, attach each zip tie strip in place using 2 small vertical bits of Duck Tape. I used grey tape, it looks quite nice. Have the strips about 2mm ABOVE your pencil line, to make sure the flange will be above top of visor in its lowered position. Then the slow bit: use more Duck Tape , this tome in say 40mm lengths, running horizontally, to secure the tie strips. My tape is 50mm wide, hence cut it lengthwise in half. Make sure you overlap the joins. Work all way round to visor holding rivets. Keep going, the original gap will fill up. It does not have to be perfectly tight all way round, I use just enough tape then tested on a rainy day. Rain did not get inside, at least in non-driven rain. My fix enables the helmet to be used in most usual snow, sleet & rain conditions.
I bought this helmet to enable me to wear my prescriptions sunglasses while skiing recently. The helmet spoiled the trip. Unfortunately there is a fault in the design of this helmet. When it snowed and rained the visor filled with water causing minimal visibility and making skiing in such conditions very difficult and unpleasant. I consequently returned the helmet to Decathlon who refunded the cost of the helmet to me.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. This is very helpful for us. I will make sure I pass it along to our product managers to work on improving this model.
Have a nice evening,
I purchased this helmet for my husband and bought the pink version in store for myself, only afterwards did I read the reviews, which all said it was rubbish in the snow as snow gets on the inside of the visor making it difficult to see. So as a precaution I took ski goggles with me in case of need. WE FOUND NO PROBLEM WITH SNOW INSIDE THE VISOR, we skied in snowy conditions and in a white out, and had no issues with snow getting inside and we did not need our goggles. As it is a category S1 visor, it meant we did use sunglasses on the bright sunny days, my husband flipped the visor up where as I still lowered it over my sunglasses as I liked the feeling of the added protection in case I should fall. But it shows it is great for those that rely on spectacles to see with as can be worn with the helmet unlike some goggles that render your glasses useless. It was a great fit that is easily adjusted and extremely light weight and comfortable to wear.
Helmet is a wonderful fit and so much more comfortable than my last (which had hard ear covers). However, the box said that it was design to work best when snowing and my visor quickly filled up with snow, even when down, making visibility nearly impossible so I skied with the visor up instead. Snow in my eyes was better than trying to use the visor. Expect the same result if you fall (tried and tested). Still works beautifully in the sun but if you’re expecting snow remove the visor and take goggles instead.
