THE ULTIMATE IN SAFETY MADE EASY: CAREFREE SKIING WITH HELMETS AND PROTECTORS FROM ATOMIC

The ultimate in safety made easy:
carefree skiing with helmets and protectors from ATOMIC

ATOMIC's helmets and protectors combine ultimate protection with maximum comfort – because they are designed by skiers for skiers and are specifically developed to meet skiers' needs.

When do skiers require especially effective protection, which parts of the body need to remain ultra-flexible? What distinguishes a comfortable helmet from an uncomfortable one, and how do you maintain a pleasant temperature inside the helmet? It is our decades of experience in the world of ski sport which enables us to take all of these factors into account when developing ATOMIC helmets and protectors and tailoring them to the specific needs of the skier.

Which is why all of ATOMIC's helmets boast a superb fit and optimum ventilation, are lightweight and come in a wide range of designs – from the progressive Xeed Ritual Powder freestyle helmet and kids' AJ JR and Sweet Stuff models to the World Cup-calibre Pro Tect WC as worn by Benni Raich.

ATOMIC's innovative Live Shield protectors feature moveable joints which allow them to adapt to the individual anatomy of the back, while special circulation canals ensure exceptional breathability. Depending on the skier's preferences and intended use, they are available in different models specifically designed for women, men and kids.

The only thing all models have in common is the level of protection: each individual Live Shield protector conforms to the EU's highest level of certification for back protectors (EN 1621-2).
