Kids today attach no stigma to
using cell phones on the slopes. Giro’s answer: a helmet wired for hands-free phone use, as well as for music. The Tuneups II system ($139 with helmet, $60 separately) connects speakers in your earflaps to a simple switch and volume control, so you can mute your MP3 player and take that call you’ve been expecting. We’re hoping you pull over first. giro.com
