HardnutZ ski and snowboard helmets were born in the UK on 10th October 2010 (10.10.10.), a date considered as lucky in Chinese culture because the number 10 represents perfection or completion, according to the “I Ching”, an ancient Chinese text. The date was chosen by us as it seemed a pretty cool date, it was easy to remember and would look good on t-shirts! All our helmets have been designed for your comfort and safety but not forgetting your style. They come in 2 designs, in-mould and ABS injection moulded, and a large range of colours to suit all ages and egos. All our block colours have a fabulous, touchy-feely, rubber coating to finish them off. Happy sliding folks!

HardnutZ Men’s & Women’s Black Carbon Ski & Snowboard Helmet

HardnutZ original design helmets are ABS Injection moulded helmets, built using two separate shells. An impact-absorbing inner EPS (Expanded Poly Styrene) liner is bonded to a hard, outer ABS (Acrylonitrite Butadiene Styrene) plastic shell. The helmets also have a 3rd layer of metal mesh covering the vents to help protect your head from penetration injuries. This type of helmet is slightly more bulky (although not by much) and is a cheaper option compared to an in-mould helmet. A little more hard-wearing too.

Choosing your size - To choose what size helmet to order, find yourself a fabric tape measure or something similar to measure your bonce with. Taking the tape, measure around your head just above your eyebrows and ears. Getting someone to help is probably best for a more accurate reading. Once you have the size check out the sizing below...

  • Medium 54-58cms
  • Large 58-61cms

Fitting - Getting the right fit is essential. Too tight and you may get a headache, or worse, decide to take the helmet off and not wear it! Too loose and the helmet could slip off on impact, reducing the protection or may be even causing injury. Once you have chosen the right size helmet, loosen the dial-fit adjuster and put the helmet on, making sure the front edge of the helmet is just above your eyebrows and not half way up your forehead! Next, tighten the adjuster until a comfortable but secure fit is found. To test this, lean forwards with the chin strap still undone and see if the helmet falls off. If it does, it’s too loose. Simply tighten the dial until the helmet stays put. Next do up the chinstrap and adjust to the correct length, this being loose enough to get two fingers in between the strap and the neck. Lastly put your hand on top of the helmet and rock it back and forth. The helmet should not slide across your head and your eyebrows should move up and down with the movement of the helmet. Ultimately the helmet should fit not only snuggly and comfortably but it should be secure and safe.

Safety & Testing - Both in-mould and ABS injection snow helmets have to pass the same CE-EN1077 European safety tests. The EPS liners in both types are designed to dissipate the energy of a collision either by compacting or breaking. Sometimes this damage is invisible to the naked eye so general advice is that if your helmet takes a proper smack, you should replace it. Due to the nature of the construction of the two types of helmet, the ABS injection style helmet can be more durable and hard wearing. All of our helmets have been tested and passed by global testing company SGS.
