More than "just a helmet", this one looks good and is incredibly comfortable. The light weight construction combines with a fit system that offers next-level comfort to make you likely to forget you're even wearing it... until you walk into après-ski. Lots of ventilation keeps you cool on warm days, and you can block a few vents on snowy days to keep you warm. The MIPS liner is designed to reduce the rotational forces applied to your head, should you take a spill.

Most helmets are tested and certified for a specific sport. Some helmets are approved for multi-sports, but only after passing the safety tests for both sports (i.e., snowsports and cycling).
Cetification is established by a variety of governing bodies who set impact standards. Most helmets are certified or approved for a specific sport, except in the case of multi-sport helmets (i.e., a snowsports helmet might also be approved for cycling if it meets the cycling safety standards).
