The older we get, the more we realize how important it is to keep our brains safe. But that doesn’t mean we want to stop going out on potentially risky adventures – like snowboarding. And with the season nearly upon us, we’ve got to figure out some ways to gear up, while still staying safe. Thankfully, Oakley has released their first ever snowboard helmet. And it’s a beaut.

The MOD5 Factory Pilot Snow Helmet has a sleek exterior, as one might expect from a brand like Oakley, but the real noteworthy elements lie beneath the hybrid shell. This helmet features the brand’s Modular Brim System – interchangeable brims to achieve the industry’s best goggle integration – and an advanced and adjustable ventilation system. It also comes fitted with removable ear pads, goggle strap retainer, a comfort liner, the brand’s Boa fit system, and the chin strap secures with a magnetic Fidlock buckle. And it features MIPS integration – a patented protection system that helps keep your head safe from any impact angle. $210 is a small price to pay for this kind of advanced brain-protecting technology.
