You spend nearly as much time each day curating killer playlists to jam out to while you're skiing as you do actually skiingface it, you're an audiophile. The K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet will let you rock your tunes while protecting your head with a lightweight helmet. The K2 Level 3 Baseline Audio system offers a low-profile stow spot for the speakers in the earflaps, and an audio system that seamlessly connects to a cell phone or media player. A detachable cord and the on-cord audio controller for music and taking phone calls helps eliminate fumbling for your phone and allows you to skip that one track that really shouldn't have made it on the playlist. The Rival's In-Mold construction uses an EPS liner that's molded directly to a lightweight polycarbonate outer shell; it's top-notch construction for ultralight helmets that still offer industry-standard protectioneven if you carelessly whack a wall as you're head-banging. This brain bucket fits snugly with the K2dialed Fit System, which allows you to adjust the fit of the inner liner with a simple twist of a dial at the back of the helmet. Passive-Channel Ventilation uses three large vents in the front, top vents, and back vents in order to direct cool air through the front and pull hot air out the back. And the Full-Wrap liner's breathable fabric moves chilling, sweaty moisture from the surface of your head to the surface of the liner where it can quickly evaporate so your head stays dry and warm.

An ideal blend of performance, comfort and style went into the design of the K2 Rival Pro ski and snowboard helmet. Compatible with Level 3 Baseline audio systems. In-Mold: In-Mold is the premium construction for ultra-lightweight performance helmets and is characterized by an EPS liner that is bonded to a lightweight poly-carbonate (PC) shell utilizing a distinct molding process. Unlike Hard-Shell construction, the lightweight EPS inner layer of the helmet is fused directly to the thin PC shell during molding. The result is a super light and protective envelope with minimal weight. Passive-Channel Venting: Channels on the inside surface of the EPS direct air-flow between your head and the helmet, removing moisture and excess heat; keeping you dry and comfortable all day long. Available on all K2 helmets. K2dialed Fit System: The K2dialed Fit System creates a custom-fitting helmet no matter what your head shape. An ergonomically inspired three-point adjustable interface maximizes fit and customization with the twist of a dial. This allows for the ultimate convenience of being able to make fit adjustments on the fly. The end result of the K2dialed Fit System is customized helmet fit just for you. Full-Wrap Liner System: This full-coverage, washable liner features a crown mesh that wicks moisture and breathes where you need it to while snugly cradling your head, creating the unmatched fit of a K2 Helmet. The Full-Wrap Liner System is seamlessly integrated with our K2dialed Fit System and K2 Baseline Audio, creating the ultimate user experience. No gaps equals better fit and more comfort. You don't wear boots without socks, so why would you wear a helmet without a liner? Available on every single K2 helmet. Goggle-Compatibility: K2 Helmets' universal brim designs work in partnership with the helmet-driven topline design and custom engineered strap brackets of their goggle frames, to achieve maximum helmet/goggle fit and compatibility. The combination of Active Matrix and Passive Channel venting systems on our helmets and carefully distributed lens vents on our goggles, minimize moisture buildup and maximize air circulation, ensuring a clear field of vision and optimized temperature control in various conditions. Baseline Audio Level 3: K2 Baseline Audio systems brings music to your ears and/or connectivity to your phone. The speakers come pre-installed in our exclusive Baseline Audio Earpads on all designated K2 helmets. The speaker housing is designed for minimal, low-profile stowage so you won't notice them unless the music is playing. If you would rather ride without music or phone connection, the speakers are easily removable from the earpads. There's no need to worry about compatibility or buying a separate accessory for your mp3 player or phone when everything you need comes with the helmet. Great for riding all day, in any conditions. The K2 Rival is the helmet of choice for the ultimate in lightweight and simplistic design. Features: Detachable cord, single squeeze button for pause/play and answer/hang up. Sizes: M, L/XL.
