While no helmet is completely failsafe, they do soften the blows and offer other advantages like blocking wind and keeping your head warmer on frigid days. Helmets also help deflect branches and limbs when skiing or riding in the trees. In addition, many helmets are compatible with audio systems, and these days they are stylish. Helmets really are a no brainer. Check out some of our favourites for this season below:
