Carrera Carbon Racing 2.0 $170
A favorite of many U.S. Ski Team members, this helmet is ideal for skiers who need race performance (although its reputation with racers translates to a hefty price tag). Top vents allow hot air to escape and adjustable side vents let skiers decide whether they want to tune their buddies’ voices in or out.

Bieffe Olimpique 2 Classic $100

Giro Nine $125
With 12 giant vents and a short-shell cut, the Nine could be mistaken for one of Giro’s bike helmets. Removable vent plugs and earflaps make it comfortable in a wide range of temperatures, and at 12.5 ounces, the Nine is the lightest helmet we tried.

Boeri Kameleon $100-$120
A removable liner allows the lightweight Kameleon (14.5 ounces) to adapt to a variety of weather conditions. But with a unique shell design and sharp colors, it will not blend into the crowd. In-line skaters and cool-weather cyclists will find its multisport design useful off the slopes as well.

Briko Forerunner $135-$169
The Forerunner is the heaviest of the helmets we tested, but it keeps heads cool by actively pulling air into the helmet and pushing hot air out through vents in the back. The Forerunner’s inner lining wicks moisture away from the head and is shaped to eliminate pressure points.
