For the last 70 years, Salomon has been at the forefront of innovation and technical excellence within the snow sports industry. The entire brand has lived and breathed the mountains since being started up in Annecy, France. Since then, they have developed equipment for skiers and snowboarders alike to enjoy. Over the last couple of weeks, the snow has been out in full force across the Alps and it’s no secret that winter has arrived. As Salomon says, it’s ‘Time to Play’!
The icon 2 custom air helmet is the latest version of the model. It’s lightweight due to the new flyweight shell and this is bonded to a high-performance EPS 4D technology liner. The EPS 4D technology within the liner acts as a shock absorber, to protect the wearers head more efficiently. Ear pads are washable and removable, along with the liner. The custom air has a slightly different fine tuning adjustment system. The point is to keep the helmet comfortable and secure by manually pumping up or releasing the air as desired – a robust and effective system!
