Step into your private, and safe, shred zone when you wear the K2 Women's Virtue Helmet on the slopes this winter. This durable helmet meets all the industry standards and certifications to help protect your head during a sudden crash or exciting, but unexpected, cartwheel session with a Hybrid In-Mold and Hard Shell construction that absorbs impact and keeps weight to a minimum. The crown of the helmet also accommodates Dual Active Matrix venting, which lets you regulate airflow with the touch of your finger, while the goggle vents remain open to keep fogging at bay. Even better, the 360 K2dialed Fit system features an ergonomic three-point adjustable interface to maximize fit and customization with the twist of a dial for superb convenience on the fly. You'll dig the cozy full-wrap liner system, which wicks moisture away, supplies breathable comfort when you navigate down techy terrain, and can be popped out for easy washing. There's no need to worry about gaper gap since the Virtue's universal brim design works seamlessly with K2 goggles and most goggles on the market. Best of all, is the included Baseline Audio System, which brings your tunes to your ears and connectivity to your phone when you shred or chill on the lift. Its integrated headphones and on-cord mini mic connect to your cell phone or your MP3 player for easy connection while you ski pow, carve up groomers, or tackle a gnarly line, and it saves you the hassle of messing with ear buds or headphones when you're jammed in the tram and want to talk to your friends.
