If it’s a peaked style that you’re after, the Anon Blitz snowboard helmet is an ecellent choice. It’s not too expensive to begin with, and its tough Endura-shell construction means that it’ll keep on trucking even if you give it the odd knock here and there.
"Should you need to change the venting on the fly, the one-handed system is incredibly easy to use"
The vents on the Anon Blitz can be fine-tuned to give you the final say on just how much air passes through. On warmer days you can keep ‘em wide open, or lock them off when you need to preserve as much heat as possible. Should you need to change it on the fly, the one-handed system is incredibly easy to use.
However you set them, your goggles will stay clear thanks to a dedicated vent system that works with just about any model (although for unbeatable compatability, it’s best to go for Anon goggles too).
Not a fan of the earpads? Not a problem; they’re removable, as is the liner, so wearing this over your favourite beanie is an option. Should you wish to keep them on, however, you’ll no doubt appreciate the Anon Blitz’s fleece-lined interior that helps to draw sweat away from your skin on warmer days.
If you’re looking for a true skate-style lid then we’d point you in the direction of the Anon Raider, but fans of the peak will find the Anon Blitz helmet much to their liking.
