Helmets don't do anything if they're not on your head, so quit lookin' at it, put the Marker Ampire Helmet on your head, and meet your buddies in the lift line. The Ampire combines the light weight of a hybrid shell with premium durability. The helmet features a hard shell upper and lightweight lower combined with an EPS foam core to offer sturdy impact protection. Along with the weight savings this helmet offers, its climate-control slider makes it easy to customize your desired level of ventilation, in case you want to lap the backside or send it up a quick bootpack. The MarkAir ventilation system allows a comfortable level of airflow that prevents your head from getting too cold even with the vents fully open, or too warm when they're fully sealed. It also helps keep your goggles fog-free.
