Pro-tec Riot Helmet
Where to Buy

If you can't ride without blasting your top-40 playlist at eardrum-shattering volumes but don't want to mess with headphones, check out Pro-Tec's Riot Audio Helmet. It has built-in headphones in the removable ear pads, and a featherweight in-mold shell that won't reduce the height of your pipe hits, alongside a passive ventilation system that'll keep you cool when you're dominating the park. Most importantly, the EPS impact foam liner will protect your brain in the case of a potential (or inevitable, let's be real) impact, especially if the fit is tuned correctly, which is easy to do with the simple Twist Fit system. At the end of the day, though, all this protection is no good if you don't wear it because you look like a turd, so Pro-Tec designed the Riot with Windshield and Gaper Gap technologies, which ensure a snug fit between goggles and helmet to keep the breeze out of your eyes and the sun off that one spot on your forehead. A goggle tan's cool, but no one wants to sport the scarlet letter of a sunburned forehead.
The Protec Riot Andreas Wiig Snow Helmet is designed by high-flying Norwegian slopestyler, Andreas Wiig. He added a visor to the classic Protec helmet, incorporated optional Audio Force ear pads, and slipped in a Recco avalanche reflector just in case. Andreas knew that cooler heads always prevail so he built in seven exterior vents to compliment the internal venting system. If you want pro-quality head protection, pick up the Protec Riot Andreas Wiig Snow Helmet before you head for the half pipe.
