The Kevin Pearce Story: Why you should wear a helmet
Pearce, of Norwich, Vt., has been considered a favorite to make the U.S. Olympic Team. He is one of the few competitors to challenge snowboarder Shaun White, besting him at the Burton European Open in 2008 and 2009 and taking the silver medal at last winter’s X Games, losing the gold medal to White by one point.
This is the helmet I use.
It’s perfect. I may have preferred the non brim version, mines in white which is great for finding me on the mountain. But the brim helps keep your goggles from snapping down on your face randomly and the removable earmuffs are killer. I’m not kidding about white being easy to find, no-one buys white gear so I’m always the only white helmet person out there.
They allow you to have Earphones to replace your earmuffs for 50 bucks
If you have plenty of cash to spend, you can even get the Bluetooth Skullcandy Kit
