Protective Headgear now legal requirement in Austria for young persons
Ski HelmetsSki helmets used to be the butt of many jokes. Now they are hip, comfortable and could save you from serious injury. Helmets are also much warmer than the average cap or hat. How to buy a ski helmet - 1. Look for a helmet model you like. Some helmets cover the ears and others have ear flaps, and they come in a variety of hues from gray to neon yellow. 2. Measure your head. Wrap a measuring tape around your head directly above your ears and forehead.
The main current norms regarding alpine helmets are CE-EN 1077 and ASTM F-2040. Only helmets answering to these norms ensure a real protection. In Europe, to conform to the EPI guideline (individual protection equipment), alpine helmets must be validated according to the CE-EN 1077 by an accredited European laboratory (i.e.: TÜV).
